No visit to Southern California would be complete without a visit to the Magic Kingdom; Disneyland has been making dreams come true for decades. Located within Disneyland Resort, Disneyland is divided into eight "lands" with different themes, such as Fantasyland, Critter Country, Mickey's Toon Town, and Tomorrowland. The park is open 365 days of the year. Holidays are some of the busiest times for the park, so plan accordingly. Hours and ticket prices can change according to the season, so be sure to call or check the website before planning your trip.
My grandson cried the whole first hour of his visit because he had been playing Disney ToonTown on the computer for over a year and he expected to visit the places from the game. They are not there, and no staff member even knew what he was talking about when he asked them.
Many of the rides broke down while we were there, some after we had waited in line for a half hour or more, and one ride broke down on both time we were waiting in line for our turn.
All the attractions that worked more than made up for the disappointments.
I think Disneyland and other amusement parks are WAY too pricey for an adult and child to get in. .. They need to do a family annual pass. And make it affordable for Familes to take the family there. Then maybe People would be able to afford it!.
I was surprised by the lack of courtesy at the park. People would litrally run into you and no apology. There used to be a special kindness in the park that has disappeared.
Ordering Mickey Mouse pancakes was always a special treat and now the totally uninterested workers hand you made before pancakes and with a sour look instead of the happy responses, we were used to in years gone by. I asked for fresh pancakes and was ignored. Many of the employees look miserable, so why are they able to work there. Isn't Disneyland supposed to be a happy place??
I really wish Walt Disney was alive, I know he would not approve of some of the rudeness.
I know that you are in business to make lots of money, but everyting is made in China or other Asian countries, why not America. America made you successful and it seems you could repay it, especially during these hard times, by selling quality items made in America.
We have been there several times during the past 50 years, but I will not be in any hurry to return.
If your gay and love skiing and golf, than disneyland park is the place for skiing golf. you can golf while you ski and ski while you golf. I just got back from disneyland a couple of days ago, and I cant wait to go back tomorrow i live in main so its an easy trip if you don't mind driving and have only a couple of pennies in you wallet. Im 56 years old and had a great time. it is also a great last minute idea for skiing and golf. goodbye!?!?!?!
Dear Disneyland Guest Communications,
On Tues Jan 3, Myself and my two daughters visited Disneyland Park. We come about once a year or two, and this was my Christmas gift to them. I have been coming to the park my whole life of 41 years and I have seen it very crowded on many occasions, but NEVER like this day. I know what its like during the holidays but this was exceptional. There was so many people there that it was very difficult to get from one line to another. Many of the rides kept stopping or closing and re-opening. We would be waiting for a ride, then we would be told the ride was closed (pirates,Indiana Jones, space mountain to name a few) so we walked back and forth all day to get on very few rides. We were stampeded and pushed around all day. Every so often large rushes of people seemed to all be running in one direction or another, probably to get to a parade or event and every time we were stepped on or shoved. There were thousands of disabled people and strollers everywhere, and I only could imagine something happening, like an earthquake or fire to set off all those THOUSANDS of people into a crazy stampede. Scary thought. If people push and shove to get to a ride, what might happen in a bad situation Why do you let SO MANY people into your park For $80 per person I would expect to have a much nicer and SAFE experience. This was absolutely the worst and I regret spending my money and time with my kids at Disneyland that day. Please do something about this, and please consider the safety of your very loyal customers!
I know that the week between Christmas and New Year's is a very busy time for Disneyland and all the theme parks in southern California, so I expected long lines and thick crowds. It was much worse than I imagined! The crowds were so large that maneuvering around several areas required us to shuffle our feet slowly, watching for stroller wheels next to us, elbow-to-elbow with the other guests - literally. The wait times for the popular rides ranged from 90 minutes to 180 minutes. Yes, the staff was exceptional, as always, but it would have been an enjoyable visit if HALF as many guests had been admitted. Walt has been gone for many years and it appears to me that the current management errs on the side of greed rather than maintaining a good quality experience. I have lived my entire life within a couple hours drive of Disneyland in Anaheim - I have good memories of the place. After this miserable experience, I do not plan to ever visit again, unless they change their policies and practices. Oh, incidentally, we spent a total of $234 parking, getting in and eating - for just 2 people.
I've been a Disney fan my entire life, and with the exception of my visit in 2003, I have never been disappointed. However, when I complained to Disney about the volume of rides that were closed with no warning - we check the schedule every day for the few months leading up to our trip - in preparation for the 50th in 2005, they gave us four 5-day park hoppers for a future trip. The CMs are always friendly, and the park is always VERY clean. Even with almost 16 million visitors per year, they still manage to keep the park cleaner than even high-end stores I've been in. The tickets may be slightly expensive, but they're worth it. The food can be slightly expensive, but not anywhere near as expensive as some of the reviews I've read. On average, my family (of four) spends about $60-70 at a counter-service restuarant. We avoid the table-service restaurants because, well, we just don't want to wait! Don't believe the reviews saying that food costs on the order of $30 per person for a small meal! It doesn't! The lines can be long during peak seasons, but if you use the FastPass system - which is free with every admission ticket - you can limit the waits. Grab a FastPass for a more popular, and hence longer wait, attraction and then go wait in line for a less popular one and return to the other later to "cut" in line! All in all, Disneyland is a wonderful place, and I recommend giving it a chance! Don't believe the bad reviews!
People complaining about Disneyland are probably people who would complain-period. Of course it's not cheap, but have you ever seen a cleaner amusement park?I haven't! In all the years our family has gone.(since 1994, and when I was a child myself) we have delighted at the rides,the characters, and the kind service from the people who work there. The patience these people endure dealing with thousands of customers each day.(and some of the customers love to gripe) I love talking to the vendors, clapping to the parades,and remind myself to thank all the working people there.Disneyland rules!!!
I love Disneyland!!!!! we have passes and have had them for about 7 years....the lines are long at times but we just deal with it and if they are to long we come back another day... the food is over priced and we do not eat there we will leave and i kind of gives us a break. We have 4 boys and they love it especially at Christmas time the best. I will never stop going I plan on keeping my pass forever i love it i could not imagine not going to the happiest place on earth...
