Disney California
« back


Anaheim, California is probably most famous as the home of Disneyland, the first Disney theme park, known around the world as "The Happiest Place on Earth", but there is much more family fun to be found in and around this city in Orange County, California.

In addition to Disneyland with its many "lands", rides, and attractions which grow in popularity year by year, there is Disney's California Adventure. This spectacular addition occupies about 55 acres of the original 100 acre Disneyland parking lot. Located immediately to the south of the Magic Kingdom, this entirely separate gated features all the best of California in condensed form.

The themed areas within California Adventure include an authentic replica
of a California seaside resort, complete with a Boardwalk and "ocean front"
amusement park. There is a roller coaster, aptly named California Screamin', and other rides. There is "Cannery Row" area representing the Monterey area, a hint of Tinsel town in the Hollywood Studios backlot, a high desert aviation area named Condor Flats, an agricultural section called Bountiful Valley, and daily wine tasting with the Mondavi family from Napa Valley. Finally, there is a wilderness area called Redwood Creek which features the symbol for the entire park, Grizzly Peak. This outcropping in the shape of a bear’s head has a white-water rafting adventure. Also included within the park itself is the Grand Californian Hotel, themed as a wilderness lodge in the architectural style of the historically significant National Parks lodges.

Enjoy sizzling steaks, seafood, exotic entrees, desserts, and a wide range of beverages, including wine and beer at the cafes and restaurants in the Disney parks. From All-American offerings to the authentic flavors of Asia, Mexico and Italy, finding a great meal is easy!

In addition to the Disneyland theme parks, there is Knott's Berry Farm, which began in the 1930s as a roadside stand offering Mrs. Knott’s homemade pies and delicious chicken dinners. Today, it is a theme park with over 165 shows, attractions, and high tech rides for thrill seekers of all ages.
