A Visit to Disneyland Can Be a Magical Experience

Nov 28, 2007
Ever since its opening in 1955, Disneyland has been enchanting people from all walks of life. More than half a billion guests have been awed at the fantastic splendor of its sprawling compound, including presidents, royalty, and heads of state. Take a trip to this magical place and you will definitely be hooked.

Disneyland or Disneyland Park is located in Anaheim, California. It features rides, themed mini compounds, and attractions against a fantasy backdrop of magical experience for the entire family. Disneyland's massive 84 acres of park land is currently divided into eight sections, or 'realms'.

In the original plan, these were supposed to look like the eight points of the compass. In order to possibly grasp the scope of the experience which you are in for as soon as you enter the main gate, it is best to do a virtual walkthrough of the park. Begin at the entrance at what is called main street.

Once you enter Main Street you will feel like you are reliving the America of the early twentieth century. This is complete with double-deck buses, arcades, and full scale steam powered pump engines. The design of this realm is striking since the buildings are built to stand out from the backdrop by simulating a sense of height, through a surreal method known as force perspective. This area is supposed to be a connecting point between the other realms.

If you want adventure fused with fantasy, Adventure Land would be the place to go. The entry point to this area, Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room, takes the visitor to familiar scenes from the Indiana Jones and Tarzan movies, with sprawling vegetation and jungles suggestive of the remoteness of the setting.

If you want to 19th century New Orleans, mosey over to New Orleans square to get a taste of history. It has been made contemporary with the inclusion of attractions inspired by the movies Pirates of the Caribbean and The Haunted Mansion. The realm called Frontierland harks as a tribute to the days when the founders of America were at work.

Themed attractions such as the more popular Mark Twain Riverboat and Pirate's Lair at Tom Sawyer Island, imitate scenes of early America, as well as themes such Golden Horseshoe Saloon which imitate the atmosphere of the Old West.

Critter Country invokes the feel of the prairie and the hills, with attractions such as Splash Mountain and a particularly familiar ride called The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. One of the most popular sections has to be Fantasyland.

It features rides and attractions inspired from famous children stories which tykes have grown up with, such as Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland. Mickey's Toontown features cartoon based attractions based on the 1988 film Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and includes rides such as Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin.

If you want to know what the original aspirations of the park were, a visit to Tomorrowland should make it clear. Its retro-futuristic attractions which suggests of the old Jules Verne theoretical designs.

Even a conceptual walkthrough of Disneyland is enough to leave a person breathless. Take part in the magic if you want to truly get the Disneyland experience.
