Create an itinerary including Disneyland Park
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. PutDisneyland Park into our Anaheim trip planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Just got back...we thoroughly enjoyed it. It has been over 10 yrs since our last visit. Genie+ is the way to go! A few reasons why I didn't give 5 stars. Some of the rides, the most popular ones, require an extra fee if you want to use the Lightning Lane. Seems like price gouging if you ask me but we still paid it nonetheless since we were only there for 2 days. Indiana Jones ride was closed, which we knew going in but totally unacceptable considering it's spring break time! Why not shut it down in February when the place isn't as busy? I know it's never a good time but again, it's spring break for a lot of people outside of California school. We will definitely come again. Having Genie+ and the ability to also order your food ahead of time was fantastic. Rise of the Resistance is absolutely amazing! Just wish we could have enjoyed Indiana Jones! Oh well, hopefully next time.
  • There's an undeniable magic to Disneyland. I mean, they literally infuse the smell of homemade cookies on Main Street. There's an atmosphere and vibe that is difficult to replicate anywhere else, especially if you are a fan of Disney's entertainment. Some personalities may not enjoy the long-line waiting, buying tons of merchandise, and the exorbitant prices of tickets (or food inside the park). Price is a huge thing. Is it worth it? That will be up to the individual to decide. I think if you are going with children aged 6-12 it could be incredibly "magical" to watch them experience Disneyland, enjoy the rides, meet some of their favorite characters, etc. If you are going with only other adults, it may be best to make sure that everybody is a fan of Disney - because otherwise it may provide a lackluster experience and it may be better to go to a roller-coaster focused theme park. If you are going with extended family, hope to the universe that whoever is getting fast-passes for you gets it for a ride you like because you likely don't have much of a say in anything. Overall, you are going to get your money's worth and have an enjoyable time, for sure. This is Disney's biggest money maker. It brings in more money (the theme parks in general) than basically any other portion of their business, and they own a ton. If you want to go and can afford it, it's worth experiencing at least once in your life - possibly more if you fall in love with it.
