The Disney resort is practically in my backyard. My family and I love to spend a whole day or just a few hours at the Disney parks. Throughout the years we learned a lot about the parks and attractions that we like to share with you.
A visit to Disneyland is not complete without a visit to the sleeping beauty castle, a ride on the flying elephant Dumbo or a trip around "it's a small world".
Tip: Do you have small children but you don't want to miss out on the thrilling rides? Use the child swap service. Read more here.
It’s a small world
This ride never gets old or boring. Children and adults of all ages will enjoy it. You ride a toy boat through several world destinations, with singing and dancing dolls representing the peoples of those countries. The music is great and it mixes several famous Disney tunes. Once you pass through the lines, it is time to relax and enjoy the scenery. <Fastpass>
Peter Pan's Flight
Dumbo the Flying Elephant
The kids get to fly with Dumbo and his friends over fantasyland. They get to control the flight and decide how high to go.
Alice in Wonderland and the Mad Hatter Tea Party
Both rides are adaptations from the wonderful movie Alice in Wonderland. In the first ride, you are going with Alice on a caterpillar buggy through a dark passing by Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum and encounter the White Rabbit, worrying about being late.
On the second ride, go spinning with the Mad Hatter at the Mad Tea Party.
Enchanted Cottage, Sweets, and Treats
The kids are screaming for ice cream? Desert or dinner time, you will find good snacks in this cottage located in Fantasyland. Like most teacup rides, the riders control how fast they are spinning. Great fun for the whole family.
Fantasyland doesn't have plenty of dining options. It packed more with rides and shows. The main restaurants are Red Rose Tavern and Troubadour Tavern.
At Red Rose, you can order typical American fare, like Cheeseburgers, chicken sandwiches or Chef's salad. The food is acceptable but nothing special.
Troubadour pretends to be a medieval-style restaurant where you can find choices like bratwurst on a brioche roll with bacon sauerkraut or a jumbo pretzel. I would still call it American cuisine.
If you don't feel like a sit-down meal, you can grab a snack and drinks from several stands around Fantasyland.
