As the flagship location of the world’s most famous theme park collection, Disneyland is a top destination for Los Angeles visitors. Over 16 million guests visit this amusement park every year to take part in the magic first created by Walt Disney in 1955.
Not only can visitors ride popular attractions, such as Splash Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, Peter Pan’s Flight and Matterhorn, but they can also meet their favorite characters, enjoy the nightly fireworks show and visit the adjacent California Adventure park.
Across the walkway from Disneyland, California Adventure continues Disney’s imaginative vision. The newer park offers immersive movie-themed worlds, like It’s a Bug’s Life and Car Land, in addition to a thrilling roller coaster, a boardwalk-like pier with carnival games and the awe-inspiring World of Color show on the water.
But the excitement does not end when visitors exit the parks’ gates. Downtown Disney center offers highly rated restaurants, a movie theater, entertainment venues with live music and gift shops for a last minute souvenir.
