There are few theme parks that can claim genuinely global iconic status, but Disneyland® must be near the top of the list. Created by the legendary animator and film producer Walt Disney, the park pioneered the concept of theme resorts when it first opened in 1955, and now attracts around 15 million visitors every year.
The park is divided into eight themed lands, where you can meet some of the characters from your favourite Disney films, enjoy state-of-the-art rides and watch fabulous live shows. Absorb the authentic atmosphere of a bygone age along Main Street before heading to Fantasyland to make friends with princesses, and sing along to “It’s a Small World” as you embark on a fantastical voyage of discovery around the globe. Don’t miss the animated clock tower with its colourful parade of figures in national costume, the highlight of this famous attraction specially created by Disney himself for the 1964 New York World’s Fair.
One of the most familiar features of the park is Sleeping Beauty Castle, modelled on a real castle in Bavaria, whose romantic rainbow-hued turrets have provided the backdrop for cherished photographs in many family albums. Jungle Cruise is another original attraction which has stood the test of time, and generations of visitors have fond memories of travelling through this tropical wonderland with its lush foliage and exotic wildlife.
With over 100 shows and attractions to choose from, many first-time visitors find it helpful to make a must-see list in advance. However, be aware that some of the most popular rides attract long queues, especially at peak times, so you may prefer to stay on the move and keep your options open. Estimated waiting times for major attractions and show schedules are displayed on the Guest Information board near the Adventureland entrance. You can also download the Disneyland® Park mobile app to your smartphone for real-time updates.
Whichever way you plan your day, it makes sense to wear comfortable clothing and footwear and to keep some sunscreen and a bottle of water handy, especially if you’ve got youngsters in tow. Multi-day tickets are a cost-effective way to make sure you don’t miss any of the fun during your stay at Disneyland® Resort.
