A Ride in the Teacups

    I really want to go to Disneyland & California Adventure, but my hubby doesn't think it's a good idea because we have a 3 y/o and twin 10 month olds. If we go just the 5 of us, will it be worth it?

    Hi there Jeanetta!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so happy you have started to consider a trip to the Disneyland Resort. You will be able to find so many fun, unique, and special opportunities for your family to make unforgettable memories while vacationing at both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. The biggest difference when traveling to the Disneyland Resort without kids versus with them is to realize that you may need to explore at a slower pace. When my husband and I vacationed prior to having our son, we toured very quickly, rode as many attractions as possible, and did not take any breaks throughout the day. When you have a child (or children!) you have to go at their pace. This may mean stopping for snacks and naps even if you have a coveted FASTPASS return time. You may not be able to experience as many attractions, but you will be able to see the parks through their eyes which is truly spectacular.

    There are numerous attractions and entertainment options available to your entire family as well. Your little twins are welcome to ride with the rest of your family on any attraction that does not list a height requirement. Some family favorites are "it's a small world," Pirates of the Caribbean, Disneyland Railroad, and Jungle Cruise. Many of our favorite family moments didn't even involve attractions, though! We love seeing our son meet his favorite Disney Characters or stand in awe as he watches the Disneyland Band playing in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle.

    While only you can determine if your trip will be "worth it," I can assure that you will make magical memories that will last a lifetime. Please feel free to return if you have any other questions!
