The best activities at Disneyland are always the ones you will enjoy the most. So how can you know in advance which activities are right for you? Read through this list of great Disneyland activities and take note of the ones that sound best for your family.
Rides and Attractions: The Disneyland park is divided into several areas, such as Tomorrow Land, Mickey’s ToonTown, and Main Street USA. If you have a few little ones, Mickey’s ToonTown is sure to bring a smile to everyone when you visit Mickey’s house. The classic ride, It’s a Small World, will also please younger children.
Older kids will enjoy riding an ATV, dodging arrows and snakes, and barely escaping with Indiana Jones on the Indiana Jones Adventure ride. The starry thrill of a falling roller coaster without seeing what happens on Space Mountain. The Matterhorn and the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad are also must-haves on the teen and adult list as they are the most popular roller coasters in the park.
Younger girls will insist on visiting Sleeping Beauty’s castle, as well as the new Pixie Hollow. In the new area of Pixie Hollow, Princess Cinderella, Princess Snow White and other Disney princesses come to visit and take pictures with their guests. Girls will love hugging the real Princess Cinderella and taking a picture with Princess Snow White. Other classic attractions to watch out for are Mad Hatter’s Teacups, Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, and Pirates of the Caribbean.
Restaurants: Eating is an experience and Disneyland offers a variety of dining options. Families will enjoy Redd Rockett’s Pizza Port, which sells pizza and a variety of Mediterranean foods that are sure to satisfy the family. The Village Haus restaurant offers a more pleasant seating environment. Do you love a good barbecue? The Big Thunder Mountain Barbeque has an all-you-can-eat buffet, and with the vegetarian options, it will please a crowd of hungry teens.
If you are looking for a place with better food, try the Blue Bayou restaurant. It offers an excellent dining experience in the light of the moon within the Pirate of the Caribbean ride. The Rainforest Café is also at Disneyland, which is a fun place for kids to eat and also offers more enjoyable meals.
Make Disneyland your own experience. Do your girls like to dress up? Do you like to dress well? Take out the Disney princess costumes and choose one to wear. It is not uncommon to see little girls dressed as a Cinderella princess or a Snow White princess walking through the park. Disney princess costumes allow little girls to make Disneyland a more magical experience.
Children may want to get autographs and pictures with the characters throughout the park. Autograph books are available in the park for children to use as they search for the characters. If you like to shop, there are also a variety of stores throughout the park. Stores like Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, World of Disney, and Emporium are scattered throughout the park.
Don’t forget the shows! The Enchanted Tiki Room and Honey I Shrunk the Audience are entertainment-oriented attractions. Disneyland also offers live shows, such as Playhouse Disney on stage, Turtle Talk with Crush, and Aladdin Musical Spectacular. Check the list of parks for show times and locations.
