With countless exciting things, America always attracts visitors from all angles: modern-looking skyscrapers, famous tourist destinations, and the overall beautiful natural scenery. And one place that makes any visitor want to once set foot in the US every time is Disneyland park – wonderland.
The beauty of wonderland
Disneyland is the result of the unique idea of Walt Disney, a famous American businessman. His name is synonymous with the qualities that make success and popularity: a rich imagination, full of new ideas, audacity at the right time, and an entrepreneurial spirit.
It is located on a land area of 34.4 hectares. From afar, Disneyland is recognized by its fairy-tale castles and familiar enchanting music.
Stepping through the gate and entering the main street is a different and bustling world. Immersed in the flow of people on this busy, bustling street typical of the American West, the feeling is like bursting when engaged in a highly majestic, splendid, and colorful carnival and parade.
With the princess Snow White and seven dwarfs, mermaids and evil octopus, or a group of animals with lion kings, deer, birds, bees, butterflies and giant flowers, and all of course, the image of Mickey Mouse is indispensable – the symbol of Walt Disney Studios, a dear friend of most children around the world.
Lost in the land of Fantasyland: a magical virtual kingdom where princesses, nannies, and fairy tales, attractive Disney animated films loved by children are displayed in front of them. With an innocent, friendly smile, it welcomes people worldwide to come and have fun.
Then come to the adventure land of Adventureland with thrilling games for teenagers, such as adventure on the Amazon river or experience in the African jungle.
Or come to the future land of Tomorrowland to participate in space exploration games, sci-fi futuristic world models of colorful space, and watch highly vivid 4-D movies, lovely.
In these areas are beautiful theme parks such as the story land of toys, grizzly bear valley, or the mystical manor, which give people wonderful and impressive experiences.
In addition, Disneyland also has shopping areas, souvenir photography areas, and watching miniature models of world wonders such as the Pyramids, Statue of Zeus, Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Temple of Goddess Artemis, Mausoleum of King Maussollos, the lighthouse of Alexandria. Each architecture has its unique architecture.
Like the Eiffel Tower, 108 meters tall, a third of its actual size, standing tall in the campus with sparkling electricity radiating from the foot to the top of the tower, or Niagara Falls, always rushing to white foam regardless of the situation, day or night, creating a sound that stirs a large area.
An indispensable thing to create a unique feature for Disneyland is that the transportation in the amusement park is exceptionally comfortable with winding railways winding in the air, super-fast cars, or ancient horse-drawn carriages, rickshaws, single boats, and oak rafts. All of these bring visitors a feeling of surprise and excitement.
But perhaps, the surprise and excitement will peak when night falls. The clock struck 20 o’clock, and the people gathered in the center of the park, looking up at the castle “Sleeping Princess” to enjoy the spectacular and beautiful scene with a fireworks display with a scenario of light staged and performed every night. A stream of light flows from the air, closing a day of living in Disneyland.
When should you go to Walt Disney World Orlando?

That means weekends and holidays will be when visitors from all over the world come together to Walt Disney World Orlando without an appointment, making it difficult to visit the parks in the system.
Christmas is the season when the park is most decorated, and also the winter season.
To reduce the crowds somewhat, you can go on weekdays and avoid major American holidays and weekends.
