One of the best reasons, some say only reason, to visit Los Angeles is to visit Disneyland. Travel here with Coach Bus Los Angeles and your party bus, coach bus, charter bus rental journey into a land of imagination and adventure has just begun.
Located in Anaheim, Disneyland Park first opened on July 17, 1955. Sitting on an area measuring 160 acres (65 ha) it is the only Disney theme park designed and built under the direct supervision of Walt Disney.
Consisting eight themed ‘lands’ - Main Street, U.S.A.; Adventureland; Frontierland; Fantasyland; Tomorrowland; New Orleans Square; Critter Country; and Mickey’s Toontown Disneyland Park occupies approximately 85 acres (34 ha).
Main Street, U.S.A. is patterned after a typical Midwest town of the Victorian period of America. It is home to the Disney Art Gallery and the Opera House, which showcases Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln, a show featuring an Audio-Animatronic version of the president. Be thankful that you do not have to contend with parking and traffic with a coach charter Los Angeles service handy.
