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
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!
