Disneyland, Los Angeles
Go to Disneyland at Anaheim. It´s not only for kids. The peaceful, beautiful world of World Disney fascinates everybody. Beside the cartoon characters you should check out the thrilling rides, the rollercoastes, the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' and a submarine ride. Go to the park early in the morning and stay for the whole day.
Fondest memory: The first view I caught of the city while I was sitting in the plane getting ready to land at Los Angeles International Airport. To see the skyline and the world-famous Hollywood sign in the hills north of the city was awesome.
Go to Disneyland, Hollywood, and Universal Studios.
Fondest memory: I got to play Draculas bride at Universal Studios and I was in a show with 'The Incredible Hulk'. I was his girlfriend....it was great to sign autographs after the show.....my stardom!
I had a fun day there, unfortunatly I did'nt have any more film to take pics as I had run out of money :-(
but it is supposed to be for kids, forget it!!!! more adults enjoyed it than kids did, me included.
Back in 1998, I think.
This is another picture from my occasional visit to the "fabled" Disneyland, that is located "just" 60 miles south of the downtown Los Angeles where I had my hotel.
Read my other tips for more information.
I was there in a bright, sunny, warm day. Why I had a sweater on, then? Who knows?
P.s.: Oh my God! How fat I was?
Disneyland is a must even if you dont have children. Situated in Anaheim some miles outside LA city.
Marine Land with dolphin show is very good too. At the coast south.
Fondest memory: Atmosphere up at Malibu Beach. Small famous restaurants along the road. One place serving egg dishes. Very good.
Chinese restaurant with foot and fingerprints in concrete
of famous actors.
Sunset Boulevard. Bevery Hills. Hollywood.
visit DISNEYLAND Anaheim - definitely, THE Happiest Place on Earth!!
This is the Mother of all Disneylands and theme parks.... the BEST in the world. DON'T ever miss it.
Fondest memory: Spending our 4th of July (Independence Day holiday) here in Disneyland was awesome!!! Everyone was in a celebratory mood and the American flags were seen all over the park too. :-)) It is Independence Day after all, ya know...

(Hm, a little pretentious but what the heck eh?)
Fondest memory: Tidbits on Mickey Mouse:
He is called Musse Pigg in Swedish..which would translate into Musse the alert (heh)He was almost called Mortimer instead of Mickey but thankfully it didn't turn out that way. But did you know that Mickey was actually called Oswald for a while there? That was back when he wasn't even a mouse yet..he was a rabbit! Mickey's b-day is November the 18 the year 1928..so he should by all means have at least grey ears by now! This is what he looked like as Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.
visit Disneyland in Anaheim, Universal Studio, Hollywood, Knott's Berry Farm and drive up to the mountains of San Bernardino and straight to the Big Bear and Lake Arrowhead..you won't regret the two-hour drive. No wonder some of the Americans claim it to be the 'Shangrila of the West'.
Fondest memory: Sitting by the Lake Arrowhead, watching the fishermen, in icy cold winter ( -4 deg Celcius ).
Fondest memory: The staff in Disneyland is very professional and polite. They never push us to leave though we devoted ourselves to shopping and became the last group of tourist in Disneyland...it is midnight time and running away their working time...
Favorite thing: Disney's two great theme parks in California, Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure, offer fun for the whole family. This will undoubtedly be the happiest place on Earth for your kids! You won't be disappointed at all. There are many great rides and shows for all ages. Located in Anaheim, in Orange County, south of Los Angeles.
spend 2 days at Disneyland and 2 days at Knots Bery Farms.
Fondest memory: I miss being able to live in the un-crouded out scirts of San Diego and just being able to jump in the car and spend a day at Disneyland or Knots Bery Farm.
If you've never beenj to Los Angeles the must sees are: Disneyland, Universl Studios, going to rd Street Promenade, Westwood, Beverly Hills, Zuma Beach, Newport Beach and Manhattan Beach.
Fondest memory: My fondest memories of Los Angeles are going to Disneyland with friends and family as a kid and realizing it was the best place on earth.
Favorite thing: We spent 5 days at Disneyland - my mother and sister and I - and we just loved seeing the joy in our mothers face when she went on most of the rides. She is 70 this year and just loved Disneyland and Universal Studios.
I have been to Disneyland at least 3 times as far as I remember
It is more or less 1 hour drive from Los Angeles
Fondest memory: The rollercoast of course!
