Create Meaningful Moments this Mother’s Day Weekend at Disneyland Resort
by Michael Ramirez, Editorial Content Director, Disneyland Resort
Dreams come true for more than children at the Disneyland Resort as we celebrate moms this Mother’s Day weekend. Here are some creative experiences you can enjoy with the mothers in your life—this weekend and beyond!
If your mom deserves a royal treatment…
First, whisk her to Fantasyland in Disneyland park and take a spin on King Arthur’s Carrousel. Be sure to take a photo with the lead horse, Jingles, as you radiantly address the court together.
Afterwards, dine like Belle and visit the Red Rose Taverne. Be our guest and indulge in our new breakfast menu fit for all princesses! Choose from favorites like Beast’s Breakfast Burger and Stuffed French Toast. Bon appetit!
When you visit Disney California Adventure park, everyone is treated like Hollywood royalty in Hollywood Land. While you’re there, experience the new 3D movie musical Mickey’s PhilharMagic! Put on your “opera” glasses and get inspired watching Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and other favorite Disney characters come to life in this magical trip gone awry!
Finally, take a break from your fanciful park excursion by treating mom to shopping spree at The Disney Dress Shop in the Downtown Disney District. She can choose from a diverse selection of unique dresses and accessories that are fit for a queen. Also visit Pandora Jewelry shop and choose from beautifully crafted bracelet charms that will make your mother sparkle!
If your mom is seeking a day filled with adventure…
Set out to Frontierland in Disneyland park and explore Pirate’s Lair on Tom Sawyer Island. Live life like Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn as you travel by log raft across the Rivers of America to get to the lair they made when they ran away to become pirates. Enjoy, brave explorers!
Back on shore, take to the sky with Soarin’ Around the World in Disney California Adventure park. Glide over continents and use all five senses to experience everything the world has to offer through the lense of our 80-foot projection dome.
Take a break from world travel and enjoy a delicious Mickey’s Tales of Adventure breakfast or brunch buffet at Storytellers Café in Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. There, Disney characters will want to meet you and take a photo with mom!
If your mom is a Super Hero…
First, soar to Hollywood Land in Disney California Adventure park where Super Heroes gather. Experience a heroic encounter at Hangar 12 with our newest hero, Captain Marvel, in front of her F-15 Eagle at select times throughout the day. You won’t want to miss mom striking an empowering pose with one of the strongest female heroes in the galaxy!
If you’re feeling brave, take a trip to Pixar Pier and fly on the Incredicoaster to save Jack-Jack with the rest of the Incredibles family. After, meet up with Mrs. Incredible, aka Elastigirl, yet another strong female Super Hero that also happens to be a super mom!
After braving the Incredicoaster, treat mom to cookies and milk. Pick yours up at Jack-Jack Cookie Num Nums!
How ever you choose to spend the day, there is plenty to experience this Mother’s Day weekend and beyond. What is your favorite way to celebrate moms at the Disneyland Resort?
