Disneyland Park Anaheim

Disneyland Park Anaheim
In the early 1950’s Walt Disney rolled the dice on 107 acres of Southern California real estate and a dream. It was the biggest gamble of his life. His dream was to build a place where everyone young and old could come and be a kid again. His vision was a place he called Disneyland. The happiest place on earth, It has that thing the imagination, and the feeling of happy excitement I knew when I was a kid. Walt Disney. Disneyland is the only Disney theme park that Walt Disney ever saw completed. He could often be seen strolling through his park speaking with guests and signing autographs. He would eventually head back to his office located above the fire station on Main Street with a head full of ideas about ways to improve the park. So it is no wonder that this theme park seems to embody many of his endearing characteristics and has thankfully over the years managed to hold onto much of its original charm. The park itself is essentially laid out the same as it was for its 1955 opening day with the exception of the addition of a new land called Mickey’s Toontown. Guests are still welcomed onto Main Street a reproduction and tribute to a 1900 turn-of-the-century Middle American small town. Main Street then empties guest into the hub of its spoke and wheel design with Sleeping Beauty Castle anchoring the hub. Guests are then funneled into one of four lands with an additional two lands that can be accessed from pedestrian pathways located further in the park.
-Fantasmic :
Guests are treated to this multimedia presentation on nights that the theme park is open late. Mickey reprises his role as the Sorcerer’s Apprentice from the classic film Fantasia. Amide laser images, fireworks, special lighting and a musical score that is first rate Mickey leads the battle of good over evil. We could back a truckload of superlatives up to this one and would not be over doing it. This is simply the best out door spectacular to be found at any theme park anywhere.
-25 minutes (weather permitting) :
Located at the end of Tom Sawyers Island with viewing available from Frontierland and New Orleans Square waterfront. Disneyland Monorail System.This futuristic transportation system can be used to transport guests from a busy & crowded theme park to the relative calm and tranquility of the Disney hotels and Downtown Disney. Even if your escape is just long enough to enjoy a more relaxing lunch than can be found in the park it will have been worth the effort.

Disney World’s Lake Buena Vista

Disney World’s Lake Buena Vista
The new Dumbo ride won over Tina Busch after one spin conjured memories of a childhood rite of passage. The new retro-style spinning ride that opened at Walt Disney World last week sports lighted fountains, Dumbo's mom's adoring face and golden storks delivering the flying cartoon elephant. Soon, Disney will open a second Dumbo ride next door to shorten the notoriously long lines. It's just the start of the biggest-ever expansion of the 142-acre Magic Kingdom park, which will double the size of Fantasyland with a 26-acre addition. By adding multiple rides, restaurants and gift shops in one swoop, the project dwarfs 90 million$ Splash Mountain, the last major Magic Kingdom ride addition that debuted two decades ago. Already the budget is headed toward $400 million, topping what rival Universal Orlando lavished on its blockbuster Harry Potter attractions two years ago.
Fantasyland is the heart of the Magic Kingdom, the place where most people gravitate, said Chris Beatty, project creative director. So we want to take guests to some familiar places they have never been before.
