After years of keeping our distance, family reunions are more important than ever! Make yours extra special by planning a family reunion at Disneyland® Resort! Reconnect and create lasting memories with your nearest and dearest at the most magical place on Earth! Even if you’ve missed hosting family and friends at home over the last few years, you can’t deny the stress that comes with hosting a family reunion. Make life easier for yourself and your family by planning a destination reunion everyone can enjoy! 

When you plan your family reunion at Disneyland® Resort, you can ensure that you’ll have countless activities to keep everyone entertained. Plus, when you work with a Disneyland® Resort Good Neighbor Hotel, you’ll all have an affordable, magical place to call your home away from home. Avoid the airport pickups, meal prep, house cleaning, and activity planning and let us do the work for you!  

Step 1: Find a Date That Works for Most Family Members

Choosing a date is one of the most challenging steps in planning a family reunion. List dates you know will work for you if you plan the reunion. Next, send out that list to your family members to see which dates will work for the most people, and plan your family reunion around that date. Here’s to hoping that almost everyone can make it, and if they can’t, they can rearrange their schedule to be part of this memory-making event! 

You’ll also want to keep an eye on the Disneyland® Resort off-season if you and your family want to save money and avoid large crowds. You can look at Disneyland® Resort crowd calendars like this one to see how busy the park will be when you plan to visit. You’ll find special events and activities in the park that you and your family will enjoy! 

Step 2: Book a Disneyland® Resort Good Neighbor Hotel

Once you and your family have chosen a date, it’s time to book your hotel! Rooms typically fill up quickly, so you’ll want to hurry once you know your family reunion dates. Plus, our rooms are exceptionally large, close to 500 square feet! Many of them are connecting rooms that allow your family plenty of space while still staying connected. To quickly get to the park, booking a Disneyland® Resort Good Neighbor Hotel is the best way to stay close to the resort. Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel is less than 10 minutes away from the park and offers a free shuttle service directly to and from the resort.  

At Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel, we’re an authorized Disneyland® Resort ticket seller! You and your family can purchase your tickets directly from our website, making it easy for you to plan your family reunion and save money simultaneously.

Step 3: Schedule and Plan Your Meals

You know how your family can get when they’re hungry, so plan your meals throughout your stay to ensure a typical eating schedule, especially if young children will be with you! Have a delicious breakfast at Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel to start your day, and take the free shuttle to the resort. Explore Disneyland® Resort with your family and find your favorite characters throughout the park. When you’re hungry for dinner, it will be easy to round up your family to get back on the shuttle and eat at the hotel. We have a variety of restaurants and on-site dining that have food selections for even picky eaters. Try meals from our Hanagi Japanese Restaurant, California Deli, Garden Court Bistro, or Garden Court Lounge. Each of our on-site dining options makes it easy for you and your family to plan meals for the length of your stay. You’ll never have to eat the same meal twice (unless, of course, you want to)! You can even arrange a catered meal for your whole family with our on-site catering services. Chef Raul Mercado is an incredible talent and can whip up something the entire family will love!
