    Hi, We are visiting disneyland for the first time this summer. I'm not sure which park would be best to go too? Do we do both parks in one day? Which one will be good for my 9year and 12 year old? We will only be able to do Disney for one day.

    Hello Vita!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I hope you are having a magical week!

    My older boys absolutely love Disneyland Resort and when we visit we often go to both parks in the same day. Our hands down, can’t miss attraction is Radiator Springs Racers. Over in Disney California Adventure Park, this fast ride is modeled after the Cars movie and we get to the park when it opens to get right in line or to score a FASTPASS. Next, we head to Paradise Pier to Toy Story Midway Mania.

    When we head into Disneyland Park, Pirates of the Caribbean is our first attraction, followed by a trip over to Tomorrowland to Star Tours The Adventures Continue and Space Mountain. We end the day watching the Fireworks over Sleeping Beauty’s Castle.

    My boys are now 11 and 16 and this is still pretty much our game plan when we visit! I hope this helps and let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your visit!

    See you real soon!
