There's Mickey Mouse there. And Minnie and Donald and Daisy and Goofy. Then there's Winnie the Pooh and friends and of course Sleeping Beauty, Ariel and the curious creatures of Wonderland. There's music and food and rides and parades. It's marvelous and magical; it's fantastic and fun. I now get why Disneyland is known as the 'happiest place on earth.'
It awakens the kid in you and lets that kid go play, literally. It makes you loosen up and get silly and just have a good time. That's definitely what it did to me and the people who were visiting Disneyland when I was there.

Just as most of USA was packing for summer holidays at the fag end of May, we made a quick trip to Disneyland in Anaheim, CA. The holiday rush had started but the peak was not there yet. It felt like not so bad a time to be there. Or was it because we'd gone there prepared for the worst, I don't know. But we had a great family holiday spending two days at Disneyland Park and one day at Disney's California Adventure Park.
I'm sure you've heard about Disneyland and what a delightful place it is. So I won't go into the details. But what I will do is give you a quick tour of 'the original Disneyland'; the only one that Walt Disney himself oversaw and even let himself be amused by.
Disneyland is where you put on mouse ears and rub shoulders with the Disney's classic characters and the newer additions to the Disney family. It's where you let yourself feel like you are a living a fantasy. For the adventurous, there are enough rides to get that adrenaline rushing, whatever level of adventure is your kind of thing.
What makes this place one of a kind is that there are a whole lot of attractions that are just right for you whether you are two or ninety two. Without further ado, let me give you a sneak peek at the 'very first Disneyland' with pictures from the TipsyFromTheTRIP travel album.
Come, see if this place really does look like the Happiest Place On Earth:

Does that look like it could be the 'happiest place?' Is Disneyland on your travel wishlist? Or have you been to any of Disney's parks as yet? What was your favourite attraction? I'd love to know.
