It’s been a while since I’ve updated my post about Disneyland Tips so I wanted to share with you a few tips as well as my preschooler’s Disneyland favorites! I’ve learned a lot in the past few years taking my preschooler to Disneyland. We still have an annual pass and try to go at least once a week. It’s the perfect place for playdates with other Disney moms!
As fans of Disneyland, we absolutely love the holiday season because of the festive decorations, new foods, and seasonal offerings that Disneyland and Disney California Adventure has to offer! This Halloween is no different as Disneyland Resorts celebrates Halloween at both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. You will be so excited to visit since it’s Halloween time at Disney California Adventure!
For those who purchase tickets to Mickey’s Halloween Party, you are allowed entrance to BOTH parks. My friends over at Magic Kingdom Mamas has tons of information about the Halloween Party! So be sure to check out their amazing blog which is chock full of information to help make your trips to Disneyland Resort so much easier!

Do you want to know where some of the best Instagrammable places are? Everyone knows about the infamous blue and white wall by It’s a Small World as well as taking pictures in front of the castle. But did you know about some of the following places that I’ll show you in my post? Read on to find out about nine unique photo ops at Disneyland!

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that we love going to Disneyland! Besides making sure you pack all your essentials, a good stroller is definitely something you need for your child. You need the perfect stroller for a day at Disneyland so that when your child gets cranky, they can rest comfortably. The perfect stroller will also hold all the stuff you bring and will be easy to maneuver. Even though A is 4 years old, we take a stroller very time we visit because Disneyland is such a big place! (Honestly, sometimes I wish I had a stroller for myself.)
Venice Child Products reached out to me and gifted us their amazing Kangaroo Stroller. Ever since getting this stroller, we have not used our other one. I’m actually going to sell our other one. (True story!)
It’s no secret that we are huge fans of Disneyland. We have an annual pass and live about 20-30 minutes away so we try to go at least once or twice a week to spend time with other friends who have a pass or to enjoy the day. When my daughter was younger, I used to pack a lot of stuff but I don’t take as much now that she is 3. Now that my daughter is potty trained, we don’t have to carry as much stuff but I still try to take things “just in case.”
One of our favorite places to go for a few hours during the day is Disneyland or Disney California Adventures. We are only about a 20 minute drive from the theme parks so we can pop in there for a couple of hours on any given day. We usually stay for 3 hours max, depending on nap schedules. A few local mommy friends have passes too, so we have Disney days often. It’s nice to go with other moms who have young children so that the kids can play together and the moms can chat while we wait in line.
We purchased the premium annual pass which gives us access to the park anytime with free parking, as well as up to 15% off dining and 20% off merchandise in select stores. It was pricey but after doing the math and knowing that we would go often, it was a better purchase than paying $99 for an adult ticket and only a 2-3 hr stay with a toddler (children under 3 are free).
