Disneyland Park California:

Disneyland Park, originally Disneyland, is the only theme park designed and built under the direct supervision of Walt Disney.  It opened in 1955 and is the first of two theme parks built at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim,California.  Disneyland Park is much smaller than Disneyworld Florida but it has most of the things you would expect from a Disney Park; Disney Hotels, Rides (some are the same as those in Florida and some are unique to Disneyland Park), Shows, Characters, Parades and of course shops and restaurants.
