    Love going to Disneyland. Some strategy helps in planning your day to assure you don't go insane standing in endless lines the entire time. For infrequent visitors I suggest at least 3 days dedicated to living a non-stop Disney lifestyle of play, play, play.

    Indeed, the happiest place on earth. I love Disneyland!!!

    I never get tired of going here over and over again. One of the cleanest theme park I have ever been to. Great for kids and adults. I love how huge and spacious this place is. I also love the food which is pricey but well worth it. Thinking about those turkey legs is making me salivating.

    Must stay for the firework show because it is AMAZING!!!

    5 stars, a total no-brainer. A place that brings out the joy in all of us and takes away the stress. Though ticket prices are costly, the experience and memories are unforgettable. Great for kids of all ages, and adults too! Rides, shopping, shows, music, good theme park food, it's truly one of a kind!

    Disneyland is and will always be the happiest place on earth! Heck! For any age, young or old, in one way or another, you'll LOVE it! The one place that brings back all those memories when you were a kid and watching all of those Disney shows and movies. It's the place you can actually enjoy some good quality time with friends, families, or a significant other at any given day of the year!! Of course, possibly spot a celebrity within earshot and take a quick picture all in one place...Disneyland!

    Disneyland has the classic rides such as Peter Pan's flight, Indiana Jones Adventure, Pirates of the Caribbean (before they really turned it into a movie), Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Matterhorn Bobsleds (even though the ride seems to malfunction all the time), It's a small world (afterall.....end of the ride, you'll probably be able to speak many languages), etc.

    Disneyland offers amazing shows such as Fantasmic!, Sounds of Disney Parade, Musicals, Fireworks show above the Disney Castle, and plenty more.

    Disneyland is a bit of a rip off but so worth it in the end! You can't find anywhere else to purchase Mickey Mouse ears with your named engraved, eat junk food such as their Mickey Mouse Pretzels (yes they shape it into Mickey Mouse), shops galore at the Disneyland Main Street Emporium, etc.

    Disneyland is and forever will be MAGICAL in my eyes. If you're a Disney enthusiast, go find the hidden Mickeys. It's hard to locate each one inside the park. Trust me, I tried. Too bad Walt Disney himself couldn't build it halfway between NorCal and Socal but it's worth the trip!

    Quick tip: You should definitely get FAST PASS. Make sure to carry bottled water. Prepare yourself for tired feet and crying kids. Spend as much time as you can before the park closes.

    In the end.....you will be the happiest "kid" on earth!

    Me and my family comes here at least 4 times a year and we always have a great time. This place can be really packed during summer and impossible to take any ride.

    Are you kidding? It's Disneyland! The happiest place on earth!
    There are few places that can compete with the fun you can have at Disney, at any age!
    I used to think it's pointless to go to Disney before you are tall enough to do all the rides, I realized how wrong I was when I finally went with my son when he was just 2 and a half.
    He had so much fun "driving" the cars at Autopia and running around Mickey's Toon Town, it was endless fun for him 'till the very end (he could do without the loud noise of the fire works though)
    If you haven't been to Disney, you absolutely must put it on your trip plan. If you have been before, you have to do it again :)

    i ºoº DISNEYLAND!!! (and California Adventure is lightyears better than before now that they "re-imagined" the park and added Carsland!)

    Disney gives you the highest quality theme park experience!
    It beats the competition any day, especially Six Flags (which is all about thrill rides and less about that perfectly-themed, immersive experience you can only get at Disneyland which makes you feel like you're a part of the story!)

    I've been an Annual Passholder for over 10 years, I've passed through those Main Entrance turnstiles well over 300 times, and IT NEVER GETS OLD!!!

    I know a day at Disneyland ain't cheap and the crowds can be unbearable sometimes (especially if you go during peak times, such as Spring Break, all of Summer, Labor Day weekend, Thanksgiving Week, and the week between Christmas and New Years!)

    Luckily for you, I'm going to share my tips and tricks to help you beat the crowds and get the most bang for your buck because time is money and everyone could use a little more of both!

    ºoº Take advantage of Fastpass (Disney's solution for saving your place in line so that you can experience other non-Fastpass attractions while waiting for your Fastpass time to come!) ALWAYS ALWAYS GRAB A FREE FASTPASS IF YOU CAN! The Disneyland Fastpass machines are not linked to the California Adventure Fastpass machines. Within Disneyland, the Roger Rabbit Fastpass machine is not linked to the other Disneyland machines. Within California Adventure, the World of Color Fastpass machine is not linked to the other California Adventure machines. So as soon as you arrive at the Disneyland Resort, you could technically get a Fastpass for Roger Rabbit, World of Color, one for a Disneyland ride other than Roger Rabbit, and one for a California Adventure ride other than World of Color! That's 4 Fastpasses in your hand before you even go on any ride! And as soon as your Fastpass says you can grab another Fastpass, go get one! The rule of thumb is to ALWAYS grab a Fastpass when you can!

    ºoº You can return to the Fastpass line ANYTIME after the first time listed on your Fastpass. Say for example that you grabbed an Indiana Jones Fastpass at 8:30am and it says you can return anytime between 10:30am and 11:30am. As long as you return ANYTIME AFTER 10:30am, you can use your Fastpass! You can use it at 10:30am, or 11am or even 10:30pm at night! As long as the first time listed has passed, trust me, you're good to go!

    ºoº Free ice and/or water at any restaurant! At self-service restaurants, just grab a to go cup and fill'er up! At counter service restaurants, just ask any cast member for iced water! If you need to carry several cups of iced water, just ask for a cardboard carrying tray! It's all FREE! Hot water used to be free but restaurants seem to be getting stingier and stingier. I think they fear lawsuits if you accidentally spill the hot water on a stranger! If you're able to score free hot water (the easiest place is Plaza Inn where you can ask the cast members at the cash registers for an insulated cup and lid and fill'er up yourself at the coffee/hot water dispenser), feel free to bring your own hot chocolate mix or teas to accompany your hot water! And if you need lemon or honey, Plaza Inn offers both for free! Lemons are next to the soda machines, and honey is free for your taking at the condiment bar!

    ºoº You can sit down at any self-serve or counter-service restaurant! If you bought some food at French Market but can't find a seat, feel free to take your tray and head over to perhaps the Hungry Bear Restaurant or River Belle Terrace, which usually have more plentiful seating than French Market (and with a lovely view of the Rivers of America to boot!)

    ºoº If you're the lucky one in your group who offered to go purchase and transport lots of Disneyland food and drinks (especially free iced water) to your friends and family (who may be resting from a long day at Disneyland or waiting for the next showing of Fantasmic), feel free to grab a plastic tray from any self-service or counter-service restaurant to aid in your transportation! Once you're done with the tray, just place it on top of any trash can and the Disneyland clean up crew will take care of the rest.

    ºoº Some rides have shorter lines! On Indiana Jones, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and It's a Small World, take the line on the right because handicap access holds up the line on the left. On Pirates of the Caribbean, take the line on the right because the line on the left goes through some additional switchbacks on the left side of the building.

    ºoº On the Matterhorn, there are two tracks. The left side goes faster (it's the inside track) and has a bigger drop, but the right side is slightly longer and more scenic (it's the outside track).

    ºoº For more tips, tricks, and trip planning assistance, feel free to message me =)

    HAVE FUN AT THE HAPPIEST PLACE ON EARTH!!! ºoº

    The mouse owns you... even if you dont think your owned by the mouse. The house that Walt built has its hands in almost everything from professional sports to movies and almost everything imaginable. This is easily seen here at Disneyland. From the changing of the rides to the inclusion of various street shows and performers/parades.

    Pro Tip: Find a multi day pass broker to save a few bucks on their ridiculous ticket prices.

    However, I like a lot of the old school stuff and even some of the new things here. There are all kinds of great/classic rides as well as some new more modern and current things. I absolutely love the space mountain, pirates of the Caribbean, matterhorn, big thunder style roller coasters and water rides. They all have special advantages to them. There is something for everyone here unbelievably enough. They have some fun shows from Star Wars interactive shows to the old favorites like the Bear Country Jamboree. Needless to say there are lots of options and lots of fun to be had.

    My daughter loves it with a passion. She thinks the whole princess thing is the best thing ever. When we were there last she was happy to take some pics with the princesses and walk through the princess castle. My daughter and I both enjoy the rides. But she wants to run through and do everything there that is possible. Rides, games, buy swag, etc...

    Its a kids paradise... at least to my daughter and I guess that is all that matters... I know I will be back as she wants to go back every single day.

    We love Disneyland. They have attractions for every age group and the staff is incredible. The only downfall is the prices for food. It is a little rediculous how much they charge - for a family of 4 we paid $55 for dinner which consisted of 3 slices of pizza, 3 drinks, one side salad, and a kids meal. We all thought that was pretty expensive considering the food was consistent of cafeteria food.

    disneyland is indeed the happiest place on earth. being a native san diegan we used to take the train when it opens and go straight to tommorrowland as they will end up with the longest lines so that way you get there quicker usually. for food i have found that the best price food is right by the mark twain paddle boat its the mexican place it was fritios but it might has changed it name. at night i have found the best place to see the fireworks is just outside of toontown by the its a small world. so many ride so little time, read your map and chart it out as to what you want to ride as the lines can get long but using the fast pass for many will help you use your time wisely you can do it all in one day but you cant stop for very long if at all. have fun

    There is nothing that can quite compare to the one and only original Disneyland. While the park itself is updated with new and updated rides (like Star Tours), it remains a classic, with the good old features like Main Street. From the fireworks and fantasmic, to the Tiki room and magic shop, Disneyland does it well, big or small.

    I've been an Anaheim local for almost 25 years, and I have to say this is the best, must-see attraction in Orange County. You haven't done LA/OC until you've done Disneyland. I actually used to work here when I was in college and didn't want to go here as much because - well, I saw it everyday. But now that I'm an outsider, I can honestly say this is the most magical place in the world. The entrance fee...not so much, but the park itself is one of a kind. Disney really has that spirit of making everything come alive.

    Bad things, monsters, evil spirits...not here! Every part of the park is meticulous and they pay very close attention to detail, from the moment you walk in the park until you leave. The rides are a lot of fun (though in the summer the wait times can be ridiculous), the food is somehow really good and high quality, and the ambiance is like a big Toys R Us playground - for kids and adults. If you have babies, your experience will be hindered as the best rides require you to be a certain height, but they are very kid-friendly. The characters are happy to see people of all sorts. Be prepared to walk a lot.

    My best advice to you is this:
    1) Come early to get the best parking and to get to the best rides before a huge line forms
    2) Get tickets in advance to save time
    3) Bring your own food if you can. The food here is really expensive and at $95 a pop for ONE park entrance fee, this will save you money for souvenirs and what not
    4) Plan where you want to go before you go. This will save you time. I would hit up all the best rides first, then go to the little rides as you have time
    5) Get Fast Passes for the good rides (Space Mountain, Matterhorn, Cars, Splash Mountain, etc.)
    6) If you're going to California Adventure first, go straight to Cars. The newest rides tend to have the longest lines or sold out for the day
    7) Do see the World of Color show. It will be worth it. As someone who has seen the Dubai Fountain in person and the Bellagio Fountain in Las Vegas, I can honestly say this is the best dancing water show in the world
    8) Make sure you have comfortable shoes on and are well rested. You can do Disneyland in a day, but it take s a lot of planning and persistence.

    The best times to go are during the week, rainy days, and NOT IN THE SUMMER OR SPRING BREAK. Unfortunately, it will be very crowded during these times, and you might waste a lot of time standing in line in the uncomfortable heat. And most of all, have fun! It is the happiest place on Earth after all!

    Since becoming an Annual Passholder two years ago, I have experienced a side of Disney that I never knew before. There is something great about being able to go to an amusement park and actually enjoy all the personal touches without having to rush from ride to ride to fit it all in. Although the park is an expensive place, from tickets to food, I challenge everyone on their next visit to stop, take a few deep breaths, and remember to look for the magic.
