About Disneyland With Kids

Disneyland With Kids Community

We are a community of Disneyland guests, (past, present and future) helping each other plan magical vacations, giving real life experiences, and sharing our best tips. Since 2017, we have grown to more than 40,000 Disneyland with Kids members and continue to invite thousands of new friends to join us every week.

Disneyland with Kids began as a need. The four co-founders knew guests needed a resource for parents, grandparents, and other adults to plan their Disneyland vacations with kids of all ages to get real life tips and experiences.

Part of what makes Disneyland With Kids so unique is the team of professional travel writers behind it. Between the four of us we have hundreds of Disneyland related articles, years of experience taking kids of all ages to Disneyland, and experience in most areas of parenting in the parks. From kids with special needs, to nursing babies, and to taking kids of all different ages, we have been there and done that.

Leslie Harvey | Disneyland with Kids Co-Founder

Leslie Harvey is a mother of two kids living in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her site, Trips With Tykes, chronicles the joys and challenges of family travel with little ones. Her work focuses on identifying and overcoming the little logistical challenges of travel with young children that make so many families shy away from it before they even begin. In addition to being an air travel geek, she also has a deep, abiding, and life-long devotion to Disney.

Her family makes trips to Disney destinations a focus of many of their travels. They’ve been to Disney World, Disneyland, on a Disney Cruise, to Disney Aulani, and also to Hong Kong Disneyland so far. Leslie visits Disneyland most often with her kids, taking the short flight from Northern California several times a year.

Look for her enjoying a churro (her favorite Disneyland snack), dining at Blue Bayou (her favorite Disneyland restaurant), staying at the Disneyland Hotel (her favorite hotel at Disneyland), or riding Pirates of the Caribbean (her favorite Disneyland ride).

Leslie is the mastermind behind Disneyland With Kids. She is our contact for Disney Media Relations and oversees our Pinterest strategy.

Becca Robins is a mom too three boys (including twins!) and lives in Idaho. Her site This Crazy Adventure Called Life shares all about making family life an adventure, whether on the road or at home. Becca is passionate about making sure families know that adventure and travel should not stop when you have children. She loves to share ways to save money on travel and how to make travel easier with little ones.

Becca has been traveling to Disneyland since she was young, but she really fell in love with the park after taking her oldest when he was ten months old. Since then, she has visited multiple times per year, and been a Magic Key Holder off and on for several years. Becca is all about finding the best Disneyland deals so that her family can go more often. Saving often includes driving the 15 hours to the park instead of flying, finding the best hotel deals, and searching for other ways to save on Disneyland vacations.

In Disneyland you can find Becca enjoying a Mickey’s Premium Ice Cream Bar (so yummy!), Riding Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, or sitting out of Star Tours (oh, her stomach!). She often stays offsite but the Disneyland Hotel is still her favorite.
