Brought to you by Disneyland Resort in California
It’s time to tick Disney off your bucket list.
If there’s one destination that’s on every (big and small) child’s holiday wish list, it’s got to be California’s Disneyland Resort. Since the original park was opened by the late Walt Disney on July 17, 1955, it has expanded exponentially into a place that’s synonymous with magic, nostalgia, memories and, most of all, fun. Here are just a few ways to make the most of your days at the resort.
Visit famous attractions
Combining Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park, the resort offers close to 100 attractions and adventures for you to explore. There are classic themed lands such as Adventureland (go treasure hunting with Indiana Jones) and Tomorrowland (come face to face with Darth Vader) plus new Disney/Pixar additions such as Cars Land and Toy Story Mania!, a carnival hosted by Buzz and Woody.
Go for a spin on the rides
See how many of these original and new rides you can get through (there’s something for thrillseekers and those who prefer a more leisurely rid): the Grizzly River Run, Hyperspace Mountain, the Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage, the Mad Tea Party, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad… The list goes on!
Take in a world-class show
Sometimes you just need to sit back and take it all in. Spend an hour watching a theatrical adaptation of Frozen at the Hyperion Theater in Disney California Adventure Park or experience the must-see night-time extravaganza World of Color at Paradise Pier, a crazy combination of water jets, colours and music as scenes from Disney and Pixar movies play across a huge screen.
Meet your favourite characters
Where else in the world can you turn a corner and run into Snow White? Characters from Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars films stroll the streets to sign autographs and pose for pictures that will be treasured for years. To be sure not to miss your favourites, download the official Disneyland Resort app to see where they will appear next.
