If you’re heading to Southern California, don’t forget to stop at the place where so many childhood memories are associated: Disneyland Park. If you have ever wanted to sail with pirates, meet fairy princesses, explore jungle territory, or dive into the ocean—and do it all at once!—Disneyland Park is the place you should visit. With over 90 acres of themed park land and a concealed backstage area, it has been making dreams come true since 1955.
The Park is divided into eight themed park lands, namely: Main Street, U.S.A., Tomorrowland, Fantasyland, Critter Country, Frontierland, Mickey's Toontown, New Orleans Square and Adventureland. During your visit, you can stay at Disneyland Hotel, Disney’s Grand California Hotel, Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel (with an added luxury of a rooftop pool!) or any nearby hotels, most of which provide transportation to Disneyland for a minimal fee.
There are numerous attractions that you can enjoy during your trip to make it worthwhile. Take a slow ride through Alice in Wonderland, or visit the Animation Academy to learn how a Disney artist brings characters to life during a hands-on presentation. Visit Frontier land for an exhilarating ride through the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, or tear through the air with the roller coaster‘California Screamin’. If you are interested in history, Disney’s museum is the place for you. If you ever wanted to enjoy a monorail ride, Disney has everything there for you as well. From soaring high in the Golden Zephyr to spinning in King Triton’s Carousel to experiencing Pinocchio’s Daring Journey in real time; everything you have always dreamed of and wondered about during your childhood is waiting for you at Disneyland Park.
But the fun doesn’t end there. Fan of Frozen? Meet the sisters, witness their royal welcome at Disneyland and live Frozen on-the-go with Let-it-go and For-the-first-time-in-forever like never before! Have you ever wondered about Aladdin in your dreams? Watch his musical spectacular in a live stage show! Enjoy a bedazzling show at the World of Color with your favorite characters! Spend your holidays at Disneyland resort; take a tour of the Park, and see how the magic unfurls before your very eyes!
There are numerous shops where you can buy Disney souvenirs and mementos. Rates for visiting the Park are affordable, although staying at a hotel will add more to your bill.
