Disneyland is a great place for a vacation, especially if you have children. Even if you do not have children, adults can have a lot of fun at Disneyland California. Any vacation can sometimes get a little expensive. Not only do you have to buy tickets just to get into Disneyland, but there are so many fun things to do once you get inside, not to mention you will need to eat and stay hydrated while having fun.
