The magic is back! After a year-long closure, the Disneyland Resort will be opening its gates for guests on April 30, 2021. We’ve secured our reservation, and now we’re in full planning mode. From attractions to accommodations, these are the five things you have to do at Disneyland.

Soak up the Three S’s -- Sights, Sounds and Smells

First up on our list of things we can’t wait to do is to stroll down Main Street USA to soak up the sights, sounds and smells of the Happiest Place on Earth. Familiar scents will fill the air as we mingle amidst candy-colored buildings and bouquets of Mickey balloons. At the end of Main Street, we’ll adjust our ears and say, “Cheers!” as we snap selfies in front of Sleeping Beauty’s castle.

Adventureland, Tomorrowland and Everywhere in Between

Entering the world of yesterday, tomorrow and fantasy has never been more thrilling! We’re ready to ride our favorite attractions again. We’ll be racing towards favorites like Pirates of the Caribbean, Indiana Jones and Space Mountain. Then we’ll check out the updates to the Haunted Mansion and the reimagining of Snow White’s Enchanted Wish. For an out-of-this-galaxy experience, we’ll be back on Batuu to check out the Star Wars: Galaxy Edge attractions.

Enjoy Disney Eats & Sweets

Catch us making the rounds and picking up our favorite Disney eats and sweets. We will start with a trip down memory lane with iconic Disney foods like corn dogs and churros. Food is just better when it’s Mickey-shaped, don’t you think? So for our next stop, we’re digging into Mickey-shaped beignets sprinkled with powdered sugar and paired with a Mint Julep. While adventuring in Adventureland, we’ll be foraging for skewers at the Bengal BBQ which couldn’t be easier with mobile ordering. The barbecue stand is just a sweet swirl away from the pineapple treat that’s a must-eat. “Dole Whip or it didn’t happen” is our Disney day mantra.

Snag New Merch

We’re bringing home the magic with new merch and memorabilia. Disney nuiMOs, pint-sized plush, dropped this year and we can’t wait to stock up. The Disney characters can be dressed in stylish outfits ranging from cosplay to Dapper Day. We’ll also be shopping for merchandise featuring characters from our favorite Disney binges like “Raya and The Last Dragon” and “The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.”

Stay for Extra Magic

After a day of soaking up the magic at the Disneyland Resort, we’ll be unwinding at one of the Disney Good Neighbor Hotels. With over 50 exclusive hotel offerings, Anaheim hotels offer a castle away from home. Plus, there’s a free Disneyland Resort limited-edition water bottle offered with a qualifying stay.

Like our pal Mickey says, we can’t wait to “See Ya Real Soon.”
