Disneyland Park was built in 1955 and is the only theme parked designed directly under industry pioneer Walt Disney. In addition to amusement park rides, Disneyland features the classic Disney characters and themed additions, such as New Orleans Square and Critter Country. More guests visit Disneyland annually than any other theme park in the world.
Disneyland is open 365 days a year and hours of operation vary depending on the day and the season. Special events, such as holiday celebrations, keep the park open for extended hours.
