    Hi! Heading to Disneyland in February and are trying to please 2 children - a Star Wars fan and a Frozen fan. Any suggestions on how to plan the day to be able to do both? We'll have a park hopper tix. Seems like SW is at Disneyland and Frozen at DCA?

    Hi Casey! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I have a few suggestions for planning a day that will please your Little Padawan and Princess! 

    First, make sure to download the Disneyland App before you arrive. It will allow you to check attraction wait times, place Mobile Food & Beverage Orders and find Character Appearances. 

    My next tip is to start your day at Disneyland Park! You'll want to get there about half an hour before the park opens so that you can try to join a boarding group for the all-new Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge! Make sure you know how to join the virtual queue! Once you've secured a boarding group, you can go about your day, but keep an eye on the Disneyland App so that you don't miss your return window to ride! 

    There is so much to explore in Batuu! You can pilot the fastest ship in the galaxy on Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run then sample Blue and Green Milk at the Milk Stand. If you'd like to grab a drink at Oga's Cantina, build a droid at Droid Depot or create a custom lightsaber at Savi's - Handbuilt Lightsabers, make sure to secure reservations in advance! 

    Hop over to Disney California Adventure Park to experience all things Frozen! Inside the Disney Animation building, you'll find Anna & Elsa's Royal Welcome. There, you'll come face-to-face with the dynamic duo from Arandelle! Make sure to visit Olaf too! And you won't want to miss Frozen - Live at the Hyperion. This dazzling stage show inspired by the movie is one the entire family will enjoy. The 1-hour theatrical production runs Sundays through Thursdays in Hollywood Land. 

    My last tip is to utilize the Rider Switch Service so that you can enjoy some rides as well. This service allows guests that don’t meet the boarding requirements or don’t wish to experience a particular attraction the ability to wait with a supervising guest (age 14 or older) while the rest of the party enjoys the attraction. Then, the roles are switched to allow the supervising guest to experience the attraction without waiting in the regular queue again. Rider Switch is available at select attractions in Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. 

    Have a fun-filled vacation at “The Happiest Place on Earth!” Come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with future questions! We’re all EARS!
