Traveling With Kids to the Disneyland Resort

Your kids are only young for a few years and there is no better place to spend time as a family than at the original magical kingdom, Disneyland!

Disneyland Park

Here are some of the magical travel tips that can help you plan your next visit. It’s easy for the whole family to get involved thanks a free iPhone and iPad app that lets you explore exciting things to see and do at the resort.

Another great tool is m.disneyland.com — you can access it through your mobile device and bring it with you to the theme parks! It has attraction locations, park hours, show times and lots of helpful information.

Disneyland Resort has really grown in the past few years.  Now there are even more unforgettable adventures and timeless favorites to enjoy from day to night.

Mater's Junkyard Jamboree

For kids five to thirteen, there is Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree in Disney California Adventure Park. You’ll want to arrive early for this popular attraction in Cars Land.   There’s also Fantasy Faire, an enchanting storybook world in the Disneyland Park where little ones can meet Disney princesses. And, of course, there’s the classic must-do attraction Matterhorn Bobsleds.

After dark, the entire family can enjoy two nighttime spectaculars — Fantasmic! in Disneyland Park and World of Color in Disney California Adventure Park. World of Color is one of the experiences where you can use Disney FASTPASS Service on select attractions — it’s included with valid theme park admission and allows you to enjoy Disneyland Resort while your place in line is saved.

World of Color

Another great service is Disney’s PhotoPass Service — imagine getting everyone into the photo at the same time!

It’s comforting to know that Disneland also has First Aid facilities in easy-to-find locations at both theme parks. And there’s also a place to retrieve Lost and Found items just outside the main entrance to Disneyland Park.

We hope your next visit is as memorable and remember, your kids are only young once so make the most of your time together at the Disneyland Resort.

Nighttime Spectaculars: New ‘Celebrate the Magic’ Images, Expanded Seating for Fantasmic!

When the sun sets here at Disney Parks, it’s time for our nighttime spectaculars. And tonight, we’re sharing a few updates on what’s to come this year at the Walt Disney World Resort, including plans to expand seating for Fantasmic! shows at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

 “Celebrate the Magic” at Magic Kingdom Park

Beginning in November, “Celebrate the Magic” at Magic Kingdom Park will transform Cinderella Castle with spectacular new projection effects. Disney Parks Blog readers are among the first to see our newest sneak peek images.

 “Celebrate the Magic” will feature all-new music, storytelling and special effects

When shows begin, “Celebrate the Magic” will feature all-new music, storytelling and special effects. It’ll be a journey to the heart of the most beloved Disney stories and characters, according to show director Katy Harris.

Also, one of my favorite nighttime spectaculars at Disney Parks will be growing. We’re installing an additional 1,000 seats in the Hollywood Hills Ampitheatre for the popular Fantasmic! shows.

Disneyland Resort Guests are About to ‘Glow With the Show’ at ‘Fantasmic!’

UPDATE: The first “Glow With the Show” performance of “Fantasmic!” for Disneyland park guests will be August 31. 

This summer, guests at Disney California Adventure park have been surprised and delighted by the ways in which the new “Glow With the Show” Ears magically interact with everything from “World of Color” to Mad T Party and more. Reaction to the “Glow With the Show” Ears has been so positive, the team is already working to expand the magic at the Disneyland Resort.

 

I’m happy to tell you that you’ll soon be able to “Glow With the Show” during “Fantasmic!” at Disneyland park. Imagine experiencing this classic nighttime spectacular in a whole new way – shimmering with the lights of romance as Disney’s royal couples drift by or becoming part of a virtual sea of flames when Maleficent sets the river on fire.

You’ll be able to get glowing with “Fantasmic!” later this month – stay tuned to the Kingdom Magic Blog for more updates.

Walt Disney World Resort Sends 2011 Out with a Bang

New Years Magic Kingdom

New Year’s Eve is one of the biggest fireworks evenings of the year at Walt Disney World Resort, a place where fireworks are both spectacular and an every-night occurrence.

  • Epcot‘s “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth” delights revelers with a salute to the new year at 7 p.m. and 11:42 p.m.
  • At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the 25-minute spectacular “Fantasmic!” that combines water, fire, lights, lasers, fireworks and music will be presented at 6:30 and 8 p.m., with the popular “Lights! Camera! Happy New Year!” fireworks display at midnight.
  • At Cirque du Soleil, all guests attending the Dec. 31 performances will receive a limited-edition Walt Disney World/Cirque trading pin. Shows are at 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. For pricing contact 407/WDW/SEAT.
