considering our first Adventures by Disney vacation it will be to Southern California...we have a 6 and 8 year old. Has anyone done this Adventure and will we need additional days at Disneyland?

Hi Jerry! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! The Southern California, Backstage Magic Adventures by Disney
vacation is so amazing! I took this trip last summer and loved it -and would do it again in a heartbeat. It's so hard to pick a favourite moment from this trip because there were so many unique experiences.
If I were you, and considering the ages of your children, I would definitely add a day or two at Disneyland. Although you'll spend a fair amount of time visiting Disneyland and California Adventure during the trip, much of that time is spent doing tours or visiting backstage areas and your kids may not get as much "ride time" as they would like. Don't get me wrong - you are given time on your own to spend in the parks, but I think adding an extra day or two would take the whole, "we have to rush because we've only got limited time to experience everything" factor away from it. The newly opened Cars Land at Disneyland
is so incredible, I know you're going to want to spend some extra time exploring and experiencing it!
I would love to answer any more Adventures by Disney
questions you have while you are planning your trip. Please come back to the Moms Panel and ask me. I wish you a magical day!
