is the original. It is Walt's park. If you are
a true disneygeek, you have to make a pilgrimage
to the theme park that started it all. Yes it is
not as big as the others, or as secluded, or even
as controlled, but it does have several of Walt's
personal touches. The park itself is much more
established and laid back. This may be attributed
to the much higher percentage of "locals" at Disneyland
than at the other Disney theme parks. People have
grown up here in Southern California with the
park and visit it frequently to see their favorite
attractions and what's new.
is one of the Geeks favorite places to go and
just hang out. I live relatively close to the
park (100 miles only….) and go regularly (at least
once a month). Disneyland is in the middle of
a major expansion drive. They are working on making
it into a vacation destination, not a couple night
stop. The entire area is now called the Disneyland
Resort and comprises of Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure, Downtown Disney, Disneyland
Hotel, Paradise Pier Hotel, and Disney's Grand
Californian Hotel. Also Disney is in the early
stages of even more expansion here in Anaheim.
is should be the section of disneygeek.com that
changes the most frequently. Look for frequent
pictorial updates of the park and the happenings
at the entire Disneyland resort complex.
have divided the Disneyland Resort into five categories
for you to explore:
parks: the original Disneyland and Disney California Adventure.
At the Disneyland Resort you have a wide variety
of entertainment to augment your theme park experiences...
Resorts: Disneyland will have three hotels
to choose from. The original Disneyland
Hotel, the newly renamed Paradise
Pier Hotel, and the "flagship" Disney's Grand Californian Hotel. As of 2011 Disney owns three hotels with 2,400 rooms, 50 DVC units, and 180,000 square feet of meeting room space.
Disney: After the parks close you need something
to do and this is to become Disney's west coast
version of the successful Disney World night spot.
Now that you are familiar with the parks, resorts,
and entertainment you have to put it together
to make a plan for your visit. Whether you are
a tourist from afar, or just a local who has not
visited in a while this section will hopefully
help you out.
This section contains things we could not figure
out where to put them. Such as Disneyland at the
holidays, Special Events, Sports teams, etc...
