Plan your trip to Disneyland this August with the whole family! You and your kids won’t want to miss this limited-time event hosted at Disneyland Resort. Parents of young Disney fans can get excited about this event explicitly geared toward children in the three-day event.

More recently, Guests have openly voiced their opinions on Disney adults. With the idea of Adult Only Days, “parents felt their children’s experiences were getting lost in the shuffle of the Walt Disney Company’s desire to cater to and make money off an older crowd,” Disney Dining explains. It seems like Disney has listened, releasing this event specifically for the younger Disney fans and their families. Disney took to their social media to share the news with all Disney fans.
