- The Disneyland Resort -
The Disneyland Resort resides in Anaheim, California that consists of two theme parks, a downtown area, and three Disney themed hotels. The entire property expands almost 200 acres located just outside of the Los Angeles area (Anaheim, CA). Disneyland Resort is located about 20 minutes from the famous Los Angeles beaches, and hour from the inland mountains, and two hours from the Mexican border. Being centrally located to just about everything southern California has to offer makes for an ideal location to sightsee at well-known places.
Disneyland is the original park that started all the theme parks and was also the only park that Walt Disney had the pleasure of seeing through to the opening day on June 17, 1955.
Disney California Adventure Park
We welcomed in February 2001 a new park to the resort, which was once completely themed like everything California. Now most of this park has changed since its opening day leaving behind most of the California theme, but the park has continued to get better with the new additions such as Pixar Pier and the soon the be Marvel Land. This park is definitely geared more towards the older crowds with the rides being a little more adventurous and adult beverages being offered at every corner.
Downtown Disney District
Along with the opening of DCA came a downtown nightlife area known as Downtown Disney that brought non-Disney related restaurants and shops, as well as a nightlife separate from that inside the parks. Downtown Disney creates a passage way between all three of the Disneyland property hotels and the Disneyland Parks.
