Disneyland® Park

Dream with your eyes open.

In a magical kingdom not so far away—somewhere between a place where you wish upon a star and dreams come true—classic Disney heroes and heroines live once-upon-a-time in fairytales that are, happily, never-ending. Welcome to the storybook world of Disneyland® Park.

The story begins with a stroll back in time to the early 1900s on Main Street, U.S.A.® Here you can live the charm of small-town America just like the good ol’ days. In Frontierland, saddle up for some serious fun, ‘cause this here's the Wild West! Yee Ha! Grab your compass and set sail for an Adventureland full of swashbuckling thrills and mysterious chills… out of Africa and into the depths of an untamed Indian jungle. Ready to live a tale as old as time? Dust off your wings and take flight into Fantasyland. A place where you’ll believe in make-believe. Where Disney princes and princesses are real. Turn the page, chart a course into the past and live extraordinary visions of the future in Discoveryland.

Finish the day with the spellbinding night-time spectacular Disney Illuminations, lighting up classic and new Disney tales. Happy endings are just the beginning at Disneyland® Park. Where enchantment lives.
