Little girl and boy with Mickey Mouse

Whether you’re young or young at heart, Disneyland Resort in California is where make-believe dreams come to life. If you can’t spend a lifetime at The Happiest Place on Earth, the perfect amount of time to take is four days. Here are four fun-filled days to help with your ultimate Disneyland itinerary.

Day 1: Start with a bang at Walt’s original Theme Park

Begin the day with a bite of fun! Enter Disneyland Park - Walt’s original Theme Park - and head straight to Plaza Inn and join Minnie & Friends for a character breakfast experience. Eat up - you’ll need a hearty breakfast to fuel the day.

With energy and excitement, it’s time to experience the Theme Park’s legendary attractions. Film-lovers won’t want to miss the famous Indiana JonesTM Adventure or join Jack Sparrow and friends on Pirates of the Caribbean. Thrill-seekers shouldn’t skip the famous mountains - Splash Mountain, Matterhorn Bobsleds, Space Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain. While other guest will find thrills of their own at the Mad Tea Party and Peter Pan’s Flight.

Make sure you finish the day at Frontierland for a night of entertainment with Fantasmic! This half-hour spectacular invites visitors into the mind of Mickey with featurettes from classics films such as Aladdin, The Lion King, Tangled and Disney's epic live-action adventure Pirates of the Caribbean—all set to a magical score.

Day 2: Experience the second Theme Park at Disneyland Resort

See another side of the Happiest Place on Earth as you take on Disney California Adventure Park. Jumpstart your day in Hollywood Land for Anna & Elsa's Royal Welcome and even get the chance to Meet Anna, Elsa and the beloved Olaf - no matter the season!

Fans of the Cars movie franchise will love Cars Land and can’t miss zooming through the desert on Radiator Springs Racers.

In the afternoon, it’s time to get to work saving the world. Head to the newly launched Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT! to join Rocket in a mission to save other Guardians. One mission down, one more to go: join Monsters, Inc. Mike & Sulley to the Rescue! and help get Boo back to her room.  

Put the cherry on top of a perfect day with friends with a stop at the Hyperion Theatre for a 55 minute Broadway-style musical of the global phenomenon - Frozen.

Day 3: Travel to a galaxy far, far away

Your third Disney day launches with a trip to a galaxy far, far away. At Disneyland Park, visit Star Wars Launch Bay to launch yourself into an interactive exhibit and meet your favourite Star Wars characters. Then jump to hyperspace aboard Star Tours – The Adventures Continue!

Next head to Fantasyland to check out some of the classic Disney attractions: soar high in the sky on Dumbo the Flying Elephant; hop inside Pinocchio’s Daring Journey; or brave Snow White’s Scary Adventures.

Day 4: End at the top of the world

The fun isn’t over yet! On your fourth and final day, return to Disney California Adventure Park for a day at the new Pixar Pier. Along the whimsical boardwalk, your favourite Pixar stories and characters come to life. Channel your inner Woody at Toy Story Midway Mania!, a midway 4D game or live the adventurous life of baby Jack-Jack Incredible on the newly re-imagined Incredicoaster. Dine al fresco in one of the Pixar Neighbourhoods or stick to something sweet for a treat.

End the day atop the Pixar Pal-A-Round ferris wheel. Choose your gondola—swinging or non-swinging—and from what feels like the top of the world, you’ll be able to take in sweeping views of the entire Theme Park, giving yourself a moment to revel in the everlasting memories created over four days.
