Disneyland for young Kids
If you are from the Northeast like me Disneyland is not usually the first place you think of when planning a Disney trip. Let’s face it Disney World is closer and when you have young children you are thinking get me there quick. Getting to your destination quick may not always be the best option. Disneyland is great for young kids. I’ll let you in on a little secret, it might even be better for young children then Disney World.
Disneyland is much smaller than Disney World. Making Disneyland easier and quicker to navigate. You can get through Disneyland in a long weekend. This leaves room to go explore other parts of California. If you stay onsite at Disneyland it is a quick walk back to your hotel for a break if needed. The two parks are at Disneyland are located within walking distance of each other and in general there is a lot less walking for little feet and of course big feet also.
Reservations for meals are easier to make in Disneyland. It is very common to be able to get a last minute reservation to a Princess meal or even a character breakfast. Not as many characters are walking around Disneyland so if you have a child who would run and hide if they see a character strolling around Disneyland is a much safer option for that child.
I am by no means saying that you shouldn’t go to Disney World. My family goes there every year. If you are undecided though and debating on Disneyland versus Disney World I say go for Disneyland. If you have already been to Disney World you can compare the two and find out for yourself which you like better and which one your kids like better. Then let me know how you enjoyed your trip!
