Disneyland Park, Anaheim

4.2
The "happiest place on earth," Disneyland Park consists of eight themed "lands" and a number of backstage areas. As you explore the 34 hectares (85 acres), you'll encounter roller coasters and boat rides, indoor and outdoor games, live shows, award-winning eateries, and a range of eclectic shops. If you'd rather not walk everywhere, stop at all eight lands via the narrow-gauge railroad that circumnavigates the park. As you travel through the magical worlds dreamed up by Disney, look for hidden representations of Mickey Mouse inserted subtly into the attractions' design and environmental decor. Conceived and built under the direct supervision of Walt Disney, this amusement park boasts the largest cumulative attendance of any theme park in the world--having welcomed more than 650 million visitors since it opened in 1955. It also gave rise to its relative, Disney World, in Florida. Put Disneyland Park into our Anaheim trip planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

    Halloween is a super busy time to visit, but the park looks so festive with all the decorations. On Saturday nights, there is swing dancing and a great band in the park. Shows are packed so plan on wa...  more »

    Other parks have tried, but there isn't anything comparable to the original Disneyland. Prices keep going up, but that's true of every competitor as well and they can't match the ambience or excitemen...  more »

    Wonderful place to go back to childhood. Disneyland is built up really nicely and atmosphere there is like in a cartoon movie. If you don't have really small kids I would recommend to stay until late. Firework (even in week days) is awesome show with great music and effects. If you like to do some rides I would recommend by fast trucks because of the long queue. Some of the staff are really really nice.

    I had a great time at Disneyland and I the whole experience was magical. We got season passes and I am exited to go again. Some lines are really long and the meals aren't the best. I suggest to eat at the Golden Horse Shoe for dinner because the food tastes very good and it has good prices. The lines are always worth the wait and the rides are so much fun! Disneyland is the ideal place to go for a amusement park.

    Kids had fun, way too crowded for me. I enjoyed California Adventure much more. Fast Passes are the way to go, get their early and grab what you can. To cool off and rest I ended up in a tiny little room in the castle, it had great air conditioning, dark and a movie was playing. I was there with three other Older people who were napping on the bench. I don't think most people even know its there because I spend a good hour in that room and maybe two people poked there head in to see what it was. I think it was themed for Sleeping Beauty? I can't really remember. But I would suggest it if you need a break.

    This place is amazing! I was surprised by my wife, son and niece for my birthday in February. I had no idea where we were going but it turned out to be an awesome adventure for the entire family. The fast passes for various rides made this far more pleasant than waiting in lines for hours. And the fireworks display at the end of the day was magnificent. I'd give this place a 6th star if it was offered. :)

    Always love Disneyland! Fast passes make everything go smoothly. There are plenty of economical food options if you don't bring your food. Crazy thing is the longest line we had was to get the shuttle back to our car! I lost my hat on big thunder, and they mailed it back to me. Customer service is second to none.
