Disneyland Resort

No visit to Anaheim is complete without a trip to the Happiest Place on Earth. The only theme park built under the direct supervision of Walt Disney, the Disneyland Resort has been a family favorite since it opened in 1955. Disney California Adventure Park, which operates as a separate theme park, was added to the site in 2001. Both are located directly opposite and within easy walking distance of the Anaheim Convention Center. Downtown Disney, a shopping and dining destination, annexes the parks.
