In Walt Disney’s words, "To all who come to this happy place... Welcome." Since 1955, Disneyland® Park has been a magical destination where families can have fun together and make memories to last a lifetime.

Both the young and young at heart will discover a magical kingdom full of classic family-friendly attractions where you can blast off in a rocket, explore the deepest jungles, sail aboard a pirate ship, or rub elbows with princesses, just to name a few. When the sun goes down, you won’t want to miss Disneyland’s iconic fireworks display or the delightful stage show effects of Fantasmic!, a journey through imagination.

Next door at Disney California Adventure® Park, experience the golden age of Hollywood as you stroll the shops of Buena Vista Street. Stop for a photo op with your favorite Pixar and Marvel characters, or head to the newly re-imagined Pixar Pier. Nights come alive when you join in for the spectacular World of Color®, a brilliant display of fountains, dazzling lights, and effects.

After the parks close, the fun continues at Downtown Disney® District, where you can find souvenirs of every kind including clothing, housewares, toys, jewelry, sunglasses and more. Enjoy live music as you shop, then dine on a wide selection of great food including Cajun, Mexican, or Italian favorites. Don’t forget to grab ice cream or a churro for dessert.
