Disneyland for Children and ParentsSituated in the sunny state of California, Disneyland is one of the most magical theme parks in America. With rides for family members of all ages, and multiple opportunities for parents to relax, it is the ideal holiday destination for those who want to be constantly entertained.

Disneyland Rides and Attractions

Disney in California is made of two primary parks: Disneyland Park, and Disney California Adventure. Those who choose to visit the Disneyland Park will enter into Main Street USA, where they can indulge in delicious sweets and learn about American history. The park is then subdivided into further magical lands, including Fantasyland, where you can fly over London with Peter Pan. Disney California Adventure will allow you to experience some of the adventures that have been featured in your favourite Disney films. From modern hits like Cars, to nineties classics like Aladdin, you will feel as though you are re-living every moment of well-loved films.

Fun for Parents

Once you have exhausted yourself in the two theme parks, you may want to find time to relax. The Downtown Disney District is filled with bars and shops, where you can grab a quick drink and relax, or purchase Disney memorabilia. The downtown area also features live outdoor entertainment and a movie theatre. This makes it perfect for families that want to take a relaxing stroll in the evening, without missing out on any of the Disney fun. If you have the opportunity to grab a babysitter, you could make the most of the Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen. If carrying on the magic into the night appeals to you, catch one of the parades or view a firework show, before heading back to your hotel.

Staying at a Disneyland Hotel

The best way to make the most of the Disney magic is to stay in an official hotel. Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel and Spa features three pools, four dining locations, and the chance to have breakfast with your children’s favourite Disney Characters. All hotels affiliated with the parks come with convenient entry, making your experience that much more enjoyable. No matter where you choose to stay, you can rest assured that your Disney experience will be enjoyable for all.
