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.

  • Disneyland is a special place for all ages. Just wish the park would limit attendance so everyone in attendance can enjoy all it has to offer. And I think we were there during a lesser attended time! ...  more »
  • There are many things that I still remember from coming here as a child. The rides are fun as are the parades and characters. Totally worth the money for the "fast-pass" on the app. We all enjoyed our...  more »

  • 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.
  • Lost my ticket! Oh no! Human error yes, but what ensued next was truly a feat of mismanagement and incompetence. I went to the front gates of the park to remedy the situation. First a manager had to be called. Waited ten minutes and the call was sent out again. Finally, after five more minutes, a manager! The manager told me I didn't need a reprint, all I needed was my electronic ticket on the app. "Well, what about getting fast passes? Doesn't the machine just take a paper ticket?" "Oh no," the manager said, "They have scanners at the fast pass locations." The next day, the first fast pass I go to requires a paper ticket. "I don't know why they tell people in the front they don't need paper tickets, we don't have the new scanners here," said the girl at the fast pass station. I go to the front again. This time I wait another ten minutes to get help from a manager in the front. "What did you do with you ticket?" he interrogates me. It is finally fixed after retaking my picture You can be sure I will never make the mistake of losing my ticket again, or going back here. I tried to fix the situation the first time, but because the front end people don't know how their own park works, I had to waste an extra trip to the front of the park to fix it. Disappointed.
  • I love Disneyland. It is probably my favorite place to vacation. The cast members or staff here are amazing. This place will always put a smile on your face and there's always something for the whole family to be excited about when going here. All the restaurants are really good and there's nothing really not to like. A lot of walking involved but highly worth it.
  • This place is so great but the prices are ridiculously over proceed and u get it it's freaking Disney but still! 4.75 for a 50 cent churro!! Wow! Anyways they are always improving the park which is great the times are if great quality, but the older my kids get the more likely I'll visit six flags instead... We got her when the gates opened and from 8am- 7pm we were able to get one 6 good rides in Disneyland! Friday I'm going to California where hopefully the lines will be better. This place is great as long as the park is not as busy as it was today!
