Disneyland Resort ~ Where it All Began

UPDATE: Currently (as of Nov. 16, 2020), Disneyland Resort is closed, but Downtown Disney is open to visitors.


 


Intimate.


Classic.


Innovative.


Disneyland is a pilgrimage home, where nostalgia and hope are felt in every railroad tie, rose bush, and park bench.  Walt walked here.  Walt dined here.  Walt dreamed here.


Walt's presence is so captivating that one may find him or herself strolling through the park still expecting to see Walt sipping on his cup of coffee, enjoying the lulling sounds of the Mark Twain paddle wheel.


Disneyland is foremost a product of love and optimism.  Walt's formidable years in Marceline, Missouri led to the design of Main Street while the center piece, a beautiful 1922 carousel, is a result of Daddy's Day outings with his daughters in Griffith Park, Los Angeles.  Walt wanted a place where the entire family could be immersed in fairy tales and adventure.  In 1952, he set out to create a destination for all ages to explore and on July 17, 1955, Disneyland Park opened its gates...and it was affectionately dubbed, "Black Sunday."  What could go wrong, did go wrong.  Heat, food shortages, and attraction breakdowns plagued opening day.  Walt was blissfully unaware and didn't know the full extent of the opening day mishaps until he read about it days later, but Walt still viewed it as the park was a hit.


Opportunity for improvement can still be seen today as the Disney parks continue to evolve.  Disneyland Resort has extraordinary charm and character with the unique capability of celebrating the classics while making the new additions feel familiar.  


 Next time you head out of Disneyland Park, give a nod toward the eternally lit lamp above the firehouse which simply translates to, "Thank you, Walt."

Our best trip so far!
When I asked Sara to plan our Disney cruise to the Bahamas including a stay at Walt Disney World and a day trip to the Kennedy Space Center, I could not have imagined how invaluable her help would be or just how far she would go to make sure every detail was perfect. Sara took care of everything including securing outside transportation and making sure that I could travel comfortably as a person with a mobility disability. Sara even texted me during the trip to make sure things were going well, and when my son lost his Magic Band, she immediately canceled it online and told me how to get a new one. Her extensive expertise is impressive, and her friendly and attentive manner is much appreciated. I will never again plan a Disney trip without Sara, and we have already booked our next trip through her.

Hassle Free/Worry Free Vacation
Sara took care of every detail of our cruise. Although cruising is typically one stop shop, we had lots of questions and Sara helped answer all of them. She was thorough in her research and answered questions I didn't even think to ask. Since it was our first cruise with kids, she made sure to analyze everything with kids in mind. She was on standby when our journey began to help us reconfigure our transportation (being a military family, things on our end didn't work out as we hoped). Sara was confident in all airline policies and was sure to explain everything in detail prior to booking/changing flights. Once aboard we had surprises waiting for us in our room, how thoughtful she was to add that special something to kick off our family cruise and make our experience that much more magical. Even during our vacation she was readily available in case I had any other questions or concerns. I loved the quick reference guide we received prior to departing, lots of great info! Thanks Sara!

Had a great time in Disney!
Sara was great! Sara planned our Disney vacation down to the smallest detail, including the big reveal! I couldn’t have asked for a better trip.

She made our trip so enjoyable and easy. She was available whenever we had a question. And we had many! Her experience was evident and appreciated.

She was a pleasure to work with and would definitely work with her again.

Best trip ever
Best travel agent ever. Sara worked with us from the very beginning to the end of our trip and then some. Which spanned over a year of us calling and asking questions all the time. We were only going to go see the Tokyo Disney parks and Sara convinced us to go visit more since we were going to go that far why not see more and boy was it ever worth it. Sara always went above and beyond for us. From being available on what’s app to taking care of so many other important things like helping us navigate through the airports to helping us change plans when things arose (to many other things to mention) Sara gave us so many ideas on where to go and what to see. And everything was fabulous. We want to go back some day and when we do we will definitely be calling Sara again. So get ready Sara. Thanks for everything Sara!!!!!

Actually, you’ve inspired me! I loved bouncing ideas off one another and learning about new areas to experience. You’re willingness to branch out and say, “Yes,” lead to those worth wild moments. Count me in for the next trip :)
