Park, "The Happiest Place on Earth", presents
7 exciting venues besides Main Street each complete with rides,
restaurants and live shows.
pick up a
Disneyland® Park Today brochure to become acquainted
with all the attractions and showtimes.
Park, in fact age is left outside the Park- everyone is
a kid once they set foot on Main Street USA.
You will feel at home on your first visit to this classic
theme park- haven’t we been friends with Mickey, Snow White,
and Winnie the Pooh for years...?
family the stroll down Main Street USA carries
the excitement of every holiday rolled into one. With the
castle of Fantasyland in the distance, suddenly
you are greeted with the train whistle, songs, a delicious
aroma of popcorn, candy and hot dogs. Perhaps a character
welcomes you with a hug and the world’s best photo opportunity.
Main Street is a great place to people watch, browse the shops,
play the Penny Arcade (kid favorite!), travel
the Disneyland® Railroad (a "must" excursion), and
ride a streetcar drawn by a real live horse. On parade days
head back early to Main Street for good viewing. This is also
the location of Central First Aid and a helpful baby
kids naturally head for the thrill rides: Big Thunder
Mountain in Frontierland, Splash
Mountain in Critter Country and the
Matterhorn in Fantasyland. But
there is plenty more to please them: Indiana Jones Adventure,
Haunted Mansion, and Space Mountain
to name a few.
and young children are enchanted with (and difficult to drag
away from) all that Fantasyland has to offer.
Mad Tea Party, Dumbo
Flying Elephant, and It’s a Small
World are especially popular(visit early or late in the
day to avoid lines). And who can resist the beautiful King
Arthur Carrousel. Next door in Toontown
kids can jump around in Goofy’s Bounce House
or join Chip& Dale in their tree house for some
interactive play. These suggestions barely scratch the surface
of these child-pleasing attractions that are the heart and
soul of Disneyland®
take to the water in Frontierland aboard the
Mark Twain, Colombia sailing
ship and Explorer Canoes. A not-to-be-missed
adventure is Tom Sawyer’s Island where kids
old and young are free to roam, climb, and explore on their
"don’t miss" attractions include Pirates
of the Caribbean in New Orleans Square-
check out Blue Bayou restaurant and actually dine inside the
attraction (reserve early in the day). We love Jungle
Cruise in Adventureland and the funky Enchanted
Tiki Room- pick up a snack at the Tiki Juice Bar after the
show. In Tomorrowland think Disneyland
Monorail- this sleek train whizzes to and from the Disneyland®
Hotel and Downtown Disney®
District providing a fun round trip and aerial view of
favorites: Autopia in Tomorrowland
(little kids hope they are tall enough to drive), Great Moments
with Mr. Lincoln (Main Street), and Cosmic Waves in Tomorrowland
just for fun.
To get the most out of our visit we like to purchase tickets
ahead of time and arrive at Disneyland®
Park when it opens.
Park is centrally located off Interstate 5 (Santa Ana
Freeway) in Anaheim and is well marked. Have the kids keep
a lookout for the Matterhorn, which is visible from the freeway.
*Be sure and mark down your parking level- Disneyland®
Park’s parking structure is one of the world’s largest. Check
with your hotel- they may offer shuttle service to Disneyland®
A browse through this helpful website (http://disneyland.disney.go.com/dlr/index
will enable you to plan your visit ahead of time so you don’t
miss any of the fun.
To fully enjoy your day in the California sun, take along
sunscreen, hats, lipbalm and bottled water (no glass containers).
Comfortable footwear will see you through the day. Rental
strollers are available inside the Disneyland® Park
but are a long way from the parking garage and lack storage
space- you are better off with your own familiar stroller.
Automated FastPass ticket dispensers are available inside
Disneyland® Park. This free service saves your place
in line at the most popular attractions so you can get more
out of your visit. Also, ask any ride attendant about "parent
switch" if you have a young child that cannot go on a ride
