The first of two theme parks built at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, opened on July 17, 1955. It is the only theme park designed and built to completion under the direct supervision of Walt Disney.
It is a brilliant place for kids – it’s exciting, thrilling, eye-popping stuff. Toddlers and younger kids will love the gentle rides and meeting the characters in Fantasyland, while older children may prefer Adventureland and Discoveryland with their thrill rides and high-tech gizmos. But it’s not just the rides – it’s the whole experience, the sights and sounds, parades and light shows that create the place ‘where dreams come true’.
Among the most popular attractions are Space Mountain, It's a Small World, Pirates of the Caribbean, Phantom Manor, Star Tours and Big Thunder Mountain – paradise for fans of imaginative fairground rides! Also not to be missed is the famous Disney Parade, the spectacular and magical procession starring Mickey Mouse and all his friends that takes place every day in Main Street USA! .
