One of the highlights of any Disney trip is meeting favorite characters. And despite having an autograph book that is quite full, there are still plenty of friends we haven’t met in real life. Disney Junior’s Sofia the First was one of those. So when we ventured out to California this past year, we knew meeting Sofia was a high priority.
Yes, we met Sofia the First.
But where? That was the question, and it was an important one.
While we visited the Disney Parks in California two separate times last year, during this last visit we only had one day to spend at a park. With two theme parks, we had to make a choice (or two). We knew that Disneyland was always a favorite, but we discovered that Sofia the First would only be found at Disney’s California Adventure.
Problem Solved with a Park Hopper Ticket – Since the entrances for the two parks are just steps away from each other (unlike in Florida), we decided on a Park Hopper ticket. That allowed us to enter California Adventure first, meet Sofia (and truth be told, ride a couple rides), then head on over to spend the rest of the day at Disneyland.
Totally worth it.
Not only did we meet Sofia the First, but we got her autograph and plenty of photos too. Great memories for my little girl.
You’ll find Sofia the First:
- California – Disney’s California Adventure park, in Hollywood Land near the “Disney Junior – Live on Stage!” show
- Florida – Disney’s Hollywood Studios, outside the “Disney Junior – Live on Stage!” show
