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.

  • Our experience was far from what we expected during our Disney trip this time around. We loved going to the parks and had many, many times but this time around we were quite disappointed. As several had mentioned, the Genie pass/ Lightning lane is absurd. We didn't mind purchasing it for an additional $20 per person but on top of that an additional $15 for certain popular rides was too much, especially since some rides were not allowing to book a time because no times were available or closed. Another set back was the staff, not very friendly, inclusive very rude. I wanted to capture a photo of the Avengers items on display and one of the cashiers purposely walked and stood in front of the items knowing I wanted to take a picture. Other cast members we encountered seemed bothered by questions and didn't seem to want to help. Not sure if there's a lack of staff but the park also needed cleaner facilities. When we were having lunch outdoors, we saw a large mouse and believe me it wasn't Mickey. And this was in plain daylight. All I can say is that the magical, welcoming experience we had felt the many times we had been at both parks was not what we felt this time around. It wasn't the happiest place on earth, at least not for us. Very disappointed :(
  • 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.
