Disneyland ♥


is an American theme park in Anaheim, California.
Opening Day July 17, 1955 (for press preview)
and July 18, 1955 (to the public).
Disneyland holds the distinction of being the only theme park to be designed and built under the direct supervision of Walt Disney himself.
Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past
and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future.
Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams,
and the hard facts that have created America ...
 with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world."
—Walter E. Disney, July 17, 1955 4:43pm


Here is the number plaque for Club 33!!

Club 33 is a private club located in the heart of the New Orleans Square section of Disneyland. Officially maintained as a secret feature of the theme park, the entrance of the club is located next to the Blue Bayou Restaurant at "33 Royal Street" with the entrance recognizable by an ornate address plate with the number 33 engraved on it. When riding Pirates of the Caribbean, just as the ride departs, the Blue Bayou restaurant is visible, but the balconies above it are actually a part of Club 33. It is the only location within Disneyland to offer alcoholic beverages, though Disneyland has a park-wide liquor license and has set up bars throughout the park for private events. Club 33 opened in May 1967
—five months after Disney's death.
Unfortunately, the memberships to get inside Club 33 are pretty pricey!! And still today a lot of people are not even aware of it's existence!

California Screamin!!

California Screamin'

This is a roller coaster at Disney's
California Adventure Park!
It's located at Paradise Pier!
It opened February 8, 2001.
 It is also the only Disney outdoor looping
roller coaster in North America.

On the Loop De Loop!!
First pic has a hidden mickey!!  Second pic is a self pic goin round the loop!
Me on California Screamin!
Watch the video I took while riding this ride!!
When they say California Screamin...
I took them literally!!



California Screamin'
is the 6th longest
roller coaster in the world
(2nd longest steel coaster in the United States),
at 6,072 feet. This coaster is more uncommon
than most, as it uses Linear Induction Motors(LIMs),
to launch the train up the first hill,
replacing the traditional lift hill chain.
The seaside launch ramp also sports a wave-machine
 that allows waves to crash
alongside the rock base of the ramp
as well as crashing up onto the trains before launch.
This coaster is one of Disney's
fastest attractions, accelerating guests from
zero to 59 miles per hour in four seconds at the launch.

The Record Catch!!!!
