We had three whole days at Disneyland in California this week!! Disneyland was made in 1955, some of the original rides are still there, including Dumbo the flying elephant and Autopia, which we went on. It is a ride where you drive a car around a set track and you get to push the pedal ( with a max speed of 7 mph ) and steer.
Walt Disney was born in 1901 and died in 1966 from lung cancer. Mr. Disney invented Mickey Mouse in 1928 in a film called ‘Steamboat Willy’. He first thought of Disneyland when he took his daughters to the park. He sat on the bench while his daughters were on the merry-go-round and he thought of a place where adults and children could have fun together, he decided to base it on his new characters, Mickey Mouse and Friends.
Next to Disneyland there is Disney California Adventure park where we also went. It opened in 2001. My favourite ride out of both parks was California Screaming which is a roller coaster that has got a loop the loop in it! It was looperlicious!
I also liked The Twilight Zone of Terror, which was a ride in a possessed lift which went up really quickly then dropped back down even quicker. The lift doors flashed open when you got to the top!
Space mountain is another ride I liked, it is a really cool roller coaster that flew through the stars at a super speed!!
There was a fun Ferris wheel in California Adventure.
Both of the parks were split into different areas and there were themed rides in each area. In Cars Land there was a ride called Radiator Springs Racers, which was a really fun car ride, but the queue took 2 1/2 hours to get through.
Every day there are parades around both parks. We saw one in California Adventure park called Disney Pixar parade. They squirted everybody with water which was refreshing because it was a really hot day.
