« back to Disney California Adventure Park
Hi there! I am visiting DL for only ONE day and would love to know the absolute best things to do with my 4 year old little girl! We have reservations at Ariel's grotto and bippity bop boutique- anything else we must do?

I’m so happy to hear you’re planning a trip to the Disneyland Resort with your little princess. You’re both going to love your day of magic at “The Happiest Place on Earth!”
Dining at Ariel’s Grotto and visiting Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique are both wonderful ideas. It sounds like your daughter is a fan of Disney Royalty, so be sure to visit Fantasy Faire, a whimsical new storybook village in Disneyland Park that recently opened right next to Sleeping Beauty Castle. It’s an enchanting world where the stories of Disney's fairy tale princesses and princes come to life! At Royal Hall, you’ll only need to wait in line once to meet friends from films such as The Little Mermaid, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty. Then, stop by Royal Theatre, where the tales of Beauty and the Beast and Rapunzel come to life in two interactive live shows you’ll both enjoy. The princesses even stay after the show to greet Guests!
An enchanting end to your day in the theme parks would be taking in the “Magical” fireworks spectacular at Disneyland Park. The night sky lights up to music from classic Disney stories like Pinocchio, Sleeping Beauty and Mary Poppins. Stake out a spot on Main Street, U.S.A. and enjoy a spectacular view of the show as fireworks burst over Sleeping Beauty Castle.
Before you leave home, take a look at the theme parks' attraction list online with your daughter so you can make a list of your must-do rides and experiences. I hope this helps, Nicole. Please feel free to write back to me with any other questions you may have as you continue to plan your pixie-dusted vacation!
Wishing you magic,
