Disneyland® Park Tickets

map | website

Disneyland® Park, "The Happiest Place on Earth", presents 7 exciting venues besides Main Street each complete with rides, restaurants and live shows.

On arrival, pick up a Disneyland® Park Today brochure to become acquainted with all the attractions and showtimes.

All ages love Disneyland® 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...?

More Detail:

For our 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 changing station.

Bigger 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.

Toddlers 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® Park.

All ages 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 own.

Other "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 the Park.

More 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.

Tip: To get the most out of our visit we like to purchase tickets ahead of time and arrive at Disneyland® Park when it opens.

Directions: Disneyland® 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® Park.

Tip: 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.

Tip: 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.

Tip: 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 with you.
