On The Purple Pumpkin Blog you’ll find me talking mainly about Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, as that is where we have been the most, and the parks which I am most knowledgeable about! My husband and I went to Disneyland Paris for the day when we were in the city for our 1st wedding anniversary in 2010 (read about that here). However, in the interest of (a teeny tiny bit of) balance for 100 Days of Disney, and because I need a quick post to catch up, here are all of the Disney theme parks around the world! We are hoping to go to Disneyland California in 2016 as part of an American road trip for my 40th birthday… we’ll see what happens!
Disneyland Resort – Anaheim, California, USA.
Opened on July 17, 1955 and comprised of just one theme park until February 8, 2001, when another park was opened. Disneyland was rebranded Disneyland Park to distinguish it from the larger resort complex. The resort focuses on Mickey Mouse and other Disney characters and occupies 500 acres (2.0 km2).
