Disneyland the magical world for everyone. Yes a lot of the rides are catered to children but they are adult friendly and most of them will allow you to join your child in the fun. There are also some rides geared towards older kids and adults. Space Mountain is one of the more popular mature rides and is a fast rollercoaster with amazing lighting effects. Some of the rides are interactive like Goofy’s Playhouse or Minnie’s house where your child can play with the gadgets in the toon’s houses. This can keep them busy for hours and be sure to bring lots of laughs so don’t forget the video camera. There are a couple good live shows but the best ones are at night. The famous Fantasmic only runs late at night because it is a spectacular light and firework show featuring your favorites Disney toons. The fireworks start after nine pm and are usually big enough to see from the hotel room. This is a nighty firework extravaganza that lights up the night sky.
At Disneyland you always have the chance of running into a costumed character and some meets are even scheduled. Throughout the day the toons roam the park looking to sign autographs and give out hugs. If you aren’t lucky in randomly spotting one there are often scheduled meet and greets featuring some of the more popular cartoons. There is always a photo opportunity. You’ll want to take a picture in front of every ride you plan to get on because you’ll be too busy having fun to take pictures while you’re on the ride. And don’t worry about lines. Yes there are lines but the park caters to busy crowds and it’s not like the old days where you had to wait an hour just to get on the ride.
There are more than thirty restaurants and a lot of them are character themed. There are low budget diners and also a few very fancy restaurants for big spenders. There are also dining options for the Fantasmic live show.
There are lots of big and small gift shops to take care of your shopping needs. Most of the gift shops carry toon apparel so your little one can spend the day in mouse ears just like Mickey.
