Going on Vacation to Disneyland
Disneyland has been a symbol of a theme park and family
vacations ever since its opening in California in July 1955. It has
been a magnet for both kids and parents, pulling them with its magnificent
atmosphere, diverse attractions, and shows.
Quickly Disneyland became a popular vacation destination
for families because it gave parents the opportunity to enjoy a relaxing
vacation in a nearby resort, while at the same time their children are
having fun in the park.
If visiting Disneyland Resort for the first time, you
will need three or four days for sightseeing. For a first visit at Disney
World, you will need a week or more. This way, visitors have a few extra
days and can spend some time at the other attractions in South California
~ for instance the beaches, Universal Studios, or the Knott~s Berry
It is probably best to stay inside Disneyland rather
than an outside hotel. But then again, some of the Harbor Blvd hotels
are actually located closer to the park's front gates than the on-property
Still, they have done such a great job of preserving
the theme throughout the range of properties, that staying at Disneyland's
Grand California Hotel or Candy Cane Inn is a wonderful experience that
it would be a shame to miss.
A tip to remember is that it is worth to arrive early
and Disney~s and to use the FastPass system. FastPasses can be obtained
at the entrance of each ride. It is true, that while on vacation, you
are hardly eager to get up early, but in order to see as much as possible
from Disney~s, it is advisable not to get there late.

and it gives you a FastPass ticket for that ride. Unfortunately, it
is not available for all rides, only the larger, more popular ones.
Going to Disney~s with kids of any age is fine. If the
kid is too young for a particular ride, the solution is a child swap.
Ask the attendant at the attraction~s entrance and they will do their
Generally, one of the adults stays with the younger
children, while the rest of the group enjoys the ride and when they
get back, the adult, who took care about the children, can hurry to
enjoy the attraction as well.
Disneyland is a remarkable place to visit anytime of
the year. Constantly, there are great shows. One of the most popular
shows are parades of famous Disneyland characters.
Children love the chance to be photographed together
with their favorite characters. Floats of musicians, dancers, and horses
is another not-to-miss attraction. The unbelievable fireworks are also
a great show.
Wherever you travel inside Disneyland, you will surely
have a wonderful vacation for the whole family, along with great memories.
For children, it is a dream come true, while for parents, it allows
them to combine a fun and peaceful vacation at their own leisure in
one of the many resorts inside.
And who knows, there is always next year to come back
