Places | Disneyland Resort Anaheim

[  Anaheim, California USA  ]

Disneyland Resort includes two theme parks (Disneyland and California Adventure) and Disney-owned resort hotels on one master-planned property in Anaheim, California.

The resort started with development of Disneyland, reported to be the only theme park directly designed and developed by Walt Disney.   Disneyland consists of eight themed “lands” and a number of back-of-house areas, and is situated on approximately 85 acres.   Disneyland opened to the general public in 1955.

Disney’s California Adventure is the second of the two theme parks developed at Disneyland Resort Anaheim.   The 67-acre theme park opened in 2001, to some disappoint among the general public over the entertainment value of the offering.   Recognizing the problem, Disney has focused significant resources in improving the entertainment experience at California Adventure.
