Disneyland Park, Anaheim

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.

  • Amazing park, we kicked off with a queue for bag check, then a queue for tickets , then a queue to get in. I was blown away by how busy it was, like a packed shopping street at Christmas everywhere yo...  more »
  • My mum and I went to Disneyland whilst we were on holiday in Los Angeles and it was absolutely amazing! It honestly is the happiest place on Earth. The wait for some rides are very long but worth it. The food/drinks are way too expensive so bringing your own would be a great idea. We went early in the morning so we were able to see every single park in Disneyland. If you have younger children you might want to do Disneyland over 2-3 days. I recommend wearing comfortable shoes and clothes as there is a lot of walking! Wearing warmer clothes if you are going at night time and download the Disneyland app as it will tell you the wait times and where every single character is in the park.
  • I know a lot of people immediately like to complain about the lines and prices, but it's all well worth it. Both Disneyland and California Adventure are 2 of my favorite places to visit in California! I know why it's referred to as the "happiest place on Earth" it's because it makes you forget about the rest of the world for a bit and take in all the great features of the park. This includes the rides, food, and definitely the characters! Walt Disney was a genius for coming up with such a great and enjoyable place like Disneyland! I can't wait to plan my 3rd trip to the parks soon!
  • Way better than Disney World in Orlando. The crowds can be a bit much here, but they are having a good time! The entire time I was here I felt as if I were in a fantasy. The rides were a blast. Space mountain I went on for the first time, and trust me, it was a life changer. On jungle cruise, my tour guide was extremely funny; and on the Indiana Jones ride, I truly felt like I was part of one of my favorite movie trilogies. The rides seem as if they are gingerly taken care of each day by wonderful staff. The food was flawless. Dined at the Blue Bayou (We had to make a reservation), and found no problems! The gumbo was almost addicting! There are thousands of chairs scattered around the park, so even if you just want to relax in the happiest place on Earth, you will have the convenience! Unfortunately, the crowds can be one's undoing. When we had to go to the bathroom, we had to wait in a long, but fast moving line. Not really that big of a problem, though. All in all, this will be an unforgettable trip, and I recommend anyone who is looking for a wonderful experience!!
  • It's awesome and I still have good memories from there when I last visited few years back. The customer service and hospitality was completely at different level and something for everybody to learn from. It's like a heaven for kids and they enjoyed it very much. There are high standard safety measures and it has been well thought through for kids safety and fun. All the theme parks were great and we found even the 3 days less to spend there. We have visited multiple entertainment parks but that Disneyland was very special. It's original and perhaps the best.
  • How can you top"The happiest place on Earth". Disneyland is a must see if you can find a day when they are slammed with people. Check web sites that give you an idea when they aren't the most busy. When it's not crowded Disneyland is our favorite place to go in southern California. When is packed with people it's very expensive compared top the amount of fun you can have. About the busy days and you'll want to go every year. A the day hope pass makes it easier to deal with crowds. Just relax and take your time.
