    Disneyland - Review

    Review by: Webmaster | Last update: 21-May-2002 | Based on 3 visits between 03/85-11/05

    Here's a park that really needs no introduction! It has been about 10 years since I last visited, and most people have visited the park anyway, so I'll keep my review brief.

    Walt Disney really revolutionized the amusement park industry when he opened Disneyland in 1955. He wanted to create a place 'where parents and children could have fun together', and he certainly achieved his dreams. Disneyland and Walt Disney World in Florida simply obliterate the nearest competition in terms of popularity and attendance. Not only that but the Disney parks have set many standards that most other parks can only dream of rivaling.

    What I find so impressive about Disneyland is the extent of theming throughout the whole park; everything seems to be themed and fits into place perfectly. The staff are simply the friendliest you could imagine, and the park is always spotlessly clean.

    The park is certainly no haven for thrill seekers, but I'm sure all visitors enjoy the magic of Disney. Unfortunately the park is a little outdated and they very rarely add new attractions, but it still draws in over 12 million visitors a year. As a result the park is usually very busy with long waits for popular attractions.
