Family Reunions at Disneyland

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!
