Disneyland Resort, California

With more than 100 attractions, shows and experiences across two theme parks, it’s wise to allow three to five days for a visit to Disneyland Resort in California. Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park are filled with magical moments from the worlds of Disney, Marvel, Pixar and Star Wars, with fun-filled parades, Broadway-style musicals and incredible night-time spectaculars that only Disney can create. There are also three onsite Disneyland Resort Hotels, shops, restaurants and an entertainment district all within walking distance of one another.

Walt Disney’s original Disneyland Park, which opened in 1955, offers a wonderful mix of nostalgia and new. Experience timeless attractions throughout nine immersive lands, including the Pirates of the Caribbean and Splash Mountain rides; meet much-loved Disney characters, and marvel at spectacular fireworks shows.

Disneyland Park offers galactic showdowns, lightsabers, and Jedi-themed cocktails

Live your very own Star Wars adventure in a whole new land where a galaxy far, far away unfolds around you. Around corners and through back alleys, you can build your own droid and custom lightsaber and sample the curious concoctions at the local cantina. Then, gather your crew and take control of the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy on Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. The most immersive and advanced attraction ever imagined in a Disney park, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is now open and blurs the lines between fantasy and reality, placing guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance.
