You might be thinking, “why would anyone go to Disneyland and not ride the rides?” and you’ve got a point. Disney is home to some of the most incredible rides in the world, but there is so much more to the park than that. Like what? We’re glad you asked. Pack your bags and get ready for an unforgettable family vacation at Walt Disneyland!
Eat at The Golden Horseshoe
There is no shortage of Disney-themed dining locations to choose from if you’re stomach is rumbling, and one of the most entertaining is The Golden Horseshoe. Here you’ll be able to fill up on tasty food and watch a fun show at the same time. If you’re lucky, you might even get called up on stage to participate!
Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room
This tiki-themed show features over 300 taking birds that sing and dance various songs and crack a few jokes in the process. Along with plenty of flowers, tiki drummers, totem poles, and other similarly inspired additions. It’s a great way to kick back and take in the island feels of Disney park.
Visit the Fantasy Faire Royal Theater
This show is great for young children, as it lets them see live performances from some of their favorite Disney movies, like Tangled and Beauty and the Beast. Each show is typically shown three times a day every hour and fifteen minutes before switching to a different production.
If you’re looking for a high-quality show, look no further than Fantasyland Theater. These showing are a little more specific due to the work that goes into production, so you’ll want to check times before going. The shows themselves incorporate a variety of different Disney elements and characters that come together for an entertaining display.
The Shooting Exposition
Do you consider yourself an expert marksman? Then go test your skills out at the Shooting Exposition, where you’ll get to fire your rifle at nearly one hundred different targets in order to get the high score. If your aim’s a little rusty, you might want to check out Outdoor Solutions shooting school if you ever want to leave the park with a prize—and your dignity.
Fantasmic is hands-down the best thing to do in the park if you’re wanting a break from the rides. The show happens twice a night, and at nearly thirty minutes long, you know you’re in for a real treat. The show has been recently revamped and features a host of many different characters, featuring dancing, lights, music, fireworks, and much more. This is an absolute must!
The Magic Never Ends
Disney is an amazing place to hop aboard thrilling and interactive attractions, but you might find that the real magic lies in other areas of the park. Whether you’re watching a fantastic show, observing a passing parade, or dining at one of many Disney-themed restaurants, Disneyland is a place where the magic never ends.
