    For a 3 yr old, which California park has more options for things to do - Disneyland or Disney California Adventure park? Rides safety wise.

    Hey Howdy Hey Hetal!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. You won't believe all the magical experiences that await you at the Happiest Place on Earth. As a fellow mom of a three year old, I have to say this is one of the most exciting times to visit the Disneyland Resort. My son really is starting to understand the plot of the attractions, he enjoys talking to his favorite Characters, and he discusses the fun experiences we had after our trip. We vacationed two months ago and he still talks about the unforgettable memories we made almost daily.

    I will say that Disneyland Park has more options in terms of attractions with no or minimal height requirements for the Resort's littlest guests. Apart from toddler favorites like Peter Pan's Flight, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh to name a few, there are some less obvious attractions that your toddler may enjoy. My son loves all modes of transportation, so traveling on the Disneyland Railroad, Disneyland Monorail, and Main Street Vehicles in Disneyland Park make him just as excited as riding some of the more popular attractions. 

    Even though Disneyland Park may have more toddler-friendly attractions, we can't leave the Disneyland Resort without heading to Disney California Adventure Park so my son can visit Cars Land and greet his favorite residents of Radiator Springs like Tow Mater and Lightning McQueen. With Pixar Pier opening this summer, there will be even more opportunities for him to be a part of his favorite Disney Pixar stories at this park.

    I hope this helps, and have a magical day!
