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.

  • My husband and I are huge Disney fans. We live near WDW, but love to travel to all the other parks on earth. Disneyland is amazing because, like all the parks, it’s unique, but it’s also the only park...  more »

  • First of all, closing time is midnight. Morning if Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. and one day feels so long. There was no February it was when I was in line at opening time. Open 1 hour how attraction was almost empty. You can move back and forth and Adventureland.

  • It's Disneyland, the most happiest place on Earth! Great for family with kids since nearly every kid likes something Disney has produced. Also great for couples since most of the rides are two seated, therefore it usually pairs you with another person. Lines are usually long, but you can get fast passes which will allow you to skip most of the lines. For ten extra dollars, you can accumulate fast pass on your phone so instead of going to the ride entrance and receiving fast passes, you can just do it by your phone, which is extremely useful if you're waiting in line. By buying this, you're pretty much guaranteed to ride all the most crowded rides at least once during your stay in Disneyland. Highly recommended.
  • Enjoyed our visit this year. Definitely need to budget to enjoy yourself. Love that they allow you to bring food and drinks. We brought 2 two liters into the park and then just asked for cups of ice and enjoyed our drinks. Lines are long but it depends on when you go. We went during the week in the summer and enjoyed most of the park. Have a budget plan- make a list of must see attractions - arrive early- bring comfortable shoes- hydrate - and enjoy your time.
  • Well here’s another Disney freak about to rave about Disneyland. I got a pass 2 years ago and it’s just been so amazing. I asked my best friend to be my maid of honor here, have had the most smiles and laughs here, and have been on every ride like 30 times. It’s truly been the happiest place on earth. My fiancé doesn’t like it as much, but I still go like once a week. I can’t think of a better place to be in California. Most rides are worth the wait, the cast members are already amazing, and it can be cheap if you know where to eat (sides of food people not a whole meal!) If there’s only one ride that your willing to wait for, do Pirates. It’s just the best.
  • This park blew away any expectations I ever had about Disney. It was truly incredible! I loved Disneyland and plan to go back in the future. It's one of my favorite places in the world for sure. There is something very charming about the park, I don't know if it's because it's Walt's original, or the constant hard work that is put in by all the cast members each day from open through close, but it's a fantastic place and deserves a 5 star for sure! (regarding the review below about Security and going through a checkpoint, that is for SAFETY. As far as you saying it is violating your freedom or your child's freedom, to me, it's worth our safety, I feel like I can speak for most people.... who in the world would complain about wanting the park safe, I hope Disney doesn't take your complaint seriously because it's just ridiculous. And I know that Disney's security makes me, my family and everyone I know feel safe.
  • No matter how busy this place gets are how expensive it might seem to some... Disneyland is by far the most incredible theme park in the world. This time... About my millions of time there I tried restaurants that I've never thought of trying. What a treat that was to experience some of the best food I've had since going to Club 33 years ago... A bucket lift in dream. I went to the two restaurants right underneath the secluded in hard to get into almost impossible Club 33. I had the steak and mashed potatoes and it was very much the same as it I remember from Club 33. Delicious is an understatement..
