Location

Disneyland is located in Anaheim, California. Disneyland was also located in different areas such as Paris, Hong Kong, and China. Anaheim, California is not that far away from other tourist attractions such as a tram ride to see where they made some of the movies.

This is where Disneyland is located.

History

Disneyland was created by Walt Disney. In the 1950's he began building what is now known as Disneyland. Disneyland opened July 17, 1955. It was built on 160 acres. Sleeping Beauties castle is the oldest of them all. In many different years in the 1900's Disney movies, TV shows, and princesses came to Disney. The Disneyland theme park cost $17 million to build. Today, there are more than 14 million people who visit the park each year. It is the first of two theme parks built at the Disneyland resort in Anaheim, California. It is the only theme park designed and built under the direct supervision of Walt Disney.

Things to do

Disneyland had about 58 attractions including the rides. They have great food also. There are 97 restaurants and sometimes Disney characters will be visiting while you eat. With the right expectations, once you visit Disneyland, you will feel like a kid again. Disneyland Park consists of eight themed "lands" and a number of concealed backstage areas that occupy about 85 acres. The 8 lands names are: Main Street U.S.A., Adventureland, New Orleans Square, FrontierLand, Fantasyland, Mickey's Toontown, Tomorrowland, and Star Wars Land. Instead of just staying at Disneyland all day, you can go to other places as well, such as Sea World and Universal Studios. At Sea World there is a tunnel you can go into and there are sharks swimming around and above you. There are other animal shows at both Sea World and Universal Studios. Universal Studios is located in Hollywood, not very far from Disneyland. This is the set for many Hollywood movies.
