    Hi, I am wanting to plan a trip to disneyland for dec 2018. I will have a 2.5 year old and a 5 year old. I am worried they will not be big enough to enjoy themselves and have fun. Will they be at an appropriate age?

    Dear Ryan,
    Forget about your worries and your strife!
    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel, where I'm always happy to share that the Disneyland Resort has something Magical for guests of all ages!
    First off, I think it's fantastic that you will be visiting in December. You'll be welcomed by a ginormous 60 ft. Christmas Tree at the entrance of the Disneyland Park as well as many other warm and joyful reminders that you're at the Happiest Place on Earth during the most wonderful time of the year!
    In order to make the most of your trip, here's what I recommend:
    1. Make dining reservations! You can book your favorite table service restaurant up to 60 days in advance. I would suggest you visit the Plaza Inn for breakfast with Minnie and Friends during your stay. You can either book online or call (714) 781-DINE.
    2. Purchase MaxPass. With this feature, you can obtain FASTPASSES for popular attractions, directly from the Disneyland Mobile App.
    Now, in terms of attractions, I'll begin by sharing that there are numerous "all ages" attractions available in both Parks. As a matter of fact, some of the most iconic rides like Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion, "it's a small world", The King Arthur Carrousel, Alice in Wonderland, Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters and the Jungle Cruise have no age or height restrictions!
    You can visit the Disneyland website and click on the tab that says "Attractions" and scroll down to the section that says "Things to do". There you can filter your categories by Park, age, thrill type and interests to get a specific listing of the attractions your little ones will be able to enjoy. You'll surely be ecstatic to learn there's tons for them to do.
    All this to say, they are most definitely big enough to enjoy a Magical time!
    Hakuna Matata!
