Disneyland 101

Welcome to the Happiest Place on Earth: The Disneyland Resort!

TheResort1

The Disneyland Resort is comprised of two parks (Disneyland and California Adventure), the Downtown Disney District, and three resort hotels.

DISNEYLAND

Fantasyland1

Disneyland is the original Disney park. This iconic American amusement park opened its gates in 1955, and has been the happiest place on earth for generations of Disney fans ever since.

Disneyland guests can explore a dense and mysterious jungle, fly through outer space, party in New Orleans, take a quiet stroll through the country riverfront, or explore a medieval village. They can brave the peaks of a snowy mountain, dive into the waters of the lagoon, or race around the landscape along a private highway. Whether young or old, new Disney fans or life-long obsessed, Disneyland offers a unique and exciting experience for each and every visitor.

Check out each land in Disneyland to learn more about the park’s features, attractions, and restaurants.

CALIFORNIA ADVENTURE

A beautiful state deserves a beautiful park, and California Adventure celebrates all the Golden State has to offer. California Adventure has been Disneyland’s counterpart since 2001, giving guests the chance to hop back and forth between a magic kingdom and a tribute to the state it calls home.

Each and every land is designed to showcase sweeping landscapes, unique attractions, and the best of the California lifestyle. Guests can explore redwood forests, join in the excitement of a Hollywood avenue, sunbathe along the pier, or take in the view of a massive mountain range. California Adventure is as gorgeous as it is exciting, and every land has attractions designed to amaze guests of all ages.

DOWNTOWN DISNEY & RESORT HOTELS

UvaBar1

Downtown Disney is the resort’s busiest spot; with tons of shopping, dining, and entertainment, there’s always something to do. Guests start and end their days at the resort in Downtown Disney, but it’s also a great spot to take a break from the parks. You don’t need a ticket to visit Downtown Disney, so it’s even a nice spot to visit if you aren’t on a Disney vacation!

Downtown Disney is also home to the Disneyland Resort’s 3 hotels: the Grand Californian, the Disneyland Hotel, and the Paradise Pier Hotel. All three hotels have walkways leading right into the Downtown Disney strip, and each hotel offers magical perks like park views or early admission.

Check out the Downtown Disney & Resort Hotels page for more information about restaurants, shopping, and the three resort hotels!
