Everyone looks forward to family reunions – and who doesn’t love Disneyland? You can bring the two
together by having your family reunion at the happiest place on earth. It is really easier than you might think to arrange this!
Start by calling the Disneyland Vacation Planning Services Department. Let them help you book rooms
at the Resort hotels, and admission tickets to the park. You should be able to get discounts on the tickets by purchasing them in bulk.
The specific service that you need to accommodate all of your family members is the ‘Happiest Place on
Earth Picnic.’ This service is offered year round, and includes admission to the park for your entire party. You also get a choice of fully catered meals for the event. For 100 – 300 people, your event can be held at Big Thunder Ranch. For 300 – 1000 people, the event will be held at the Festival Arena.
If there are less than 100 people in your party, you may not be eligible for the catering services. This is
at the sole discretion of Disneyland, and you will need to discuss this with Guest Services or the Planning Services Departments. If catering is not available, reservations in the many restaurants can be made instead.
You may be able to get a discount on your family member’s rooms at the Resorts as well, if you book
well in advance, hold your event during the off-season, and book a block of rooms. Airline tickets for those who will need to fly to Disneyland should also be purchased well in advance, and in bulk for additional discounts.
Again, allow Disneyland Vacation Planning Services to help you with the arrangements, and use a travel
agent to handle any arrangements that planning services doesn’t cover. For best results, choose one
family member to work with the planning services and the travel agent, and relay information back and
forth between the services and the family members. Having one person collecting and sharing information will cut down on a great deal of confusion and misinformation when you are trying to make travel arrangements for a large number of people.
It may take work and planning, but in the end, this will be one family reunion that will never be forgotten. Talk with the Vacation Planning Services Department to find out what other services are available to make this an even more special experience for you and your family members. The Surprise services would be a nice touch!
