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.
