Disneyland. The place has become renowned over the years as a haven for the child in all of us. Here you can visit the wonders of the silver screen and see your favorite characters brought to life either through animatronics or as personifications that wander the packed avenues of the theme park shaking hands, posing for photographs, and helping people feel as if they are part of the experience. It was founded by Walt Disney himself back in 1955 and in his own words, “Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world.” So far that has held true, as Disneyland has continued to grow to the point that it now has a sister theme park and is far larger than what first began over 60 years ago.
These days, Disneyland is actually called Disneyland Resort when referring to the overall structure of the theme parks within the resort. In 2001 a sister theme park opened, called California Adventure, which specifically caters to California’s unique cultural history through stylized recreation. Beyond that, the overall resort is broken down into the shopping and entertainment districts within the overall scheme.
The lure of Disneyland is the theme-park rides and attractions. Pirates of the Caribbean, Space Mountain, Star Tours, or the Indiana Jones Adventure, these are the main reasons millions of people come year after year to visit Disneyland above and beyond simply celebrating the magic the company has brought to the lives of people around the world through the movies and imagination of the company. Today, the park is broken down into specific themes: Main Street, New Orleans Square, Fantasyland, Mickey’s Toontown, Adventureland, Frontierland, Critter Country, and Tomorrowland. Each specific area has rides and attractions catering to its specific theme, and visitors can choose from nearly 60 main attractions. It’s important to plan your trip in advance, because the crowds during the peak summer months can literally get beyond ridiculous, but it’s still an amazing time to be had for all.
