Disneyland, Walt Disney's first park, is in the heart of Anaheim. Since its opening in 1955, the park has expanded, adding new rides and adventures, but the nostalgic Sleeping Beauty Castle still takes center stage. Every night Tinkerbell whizzes down from the top of the Matterhorn and over the castle to kick of the fireworks celebration.

Disneyland California Adventure is right next door to Disneyland. The park mimics California landmarks and cartoon characters from more recent films come to life. Downtown Disney is a themed shopping center next to the Disneyland Hotel.

Knott's Berry Farm, just over the border in Buena Park, was once a boysenberry farm, famed for its preserves and the Chicken Dinner Restaurant. Both are still available, but they are joined by western-style entertainment and thrill rides, such as Bigfoot Rapids and the Timber Mountain Log Ride.
