This is a review about several visits pre-pandemic. My family had annual passes because that was the only thing that "made sense" for us financially. I grew up going to Disneyland once-three times a year as we lived a few hours away. The economy was much better during my youth but the prices for Disney seemed to be justified more as well. I don't understand paying $200 per ticket for one day of Disneyland. Let alone $600 for a family of three with parking and more for refreshments etc. Quality was sinking faster than hassium through a hydrogen cloud. Food there is not only expensive but most of it is not good. Less than a decade ago they would replace your popcorn if it fell, etc. Now a cup of scalding hot black coffee (they told us to go across the park to pay for ice) is $8, the hot dogs are usually cold and closer to the texture of jerky, you pay about 16 times what you could pay for same quality or better out of the park. Preferable to spend more and get hospital-cafeteria quality food at a restaurant if you have the time to spend waiting in a horrendous line (even if you order on the app), IF you don't have to argue every other order because the staff can't keep up even when you get only 1-2 meals. There was ONE dessert that seemed worth it in the park taking into account the mark-up for convenience. The quality of service is sad. I feel bad for the employees- they don't get paid what they should considering how much people pay to enter, and on merchandise, and parking etc....BUT they used to be expected to behave in a decent manner. Now one employee in guest relations will contradict what another says about guidelines and rules until you get out the information yourself on Disney's website to CONVINCE them that they are wrong! That's usually after another 20-30 minute wait to have talked with them in the first place. Walking past you employees randomly glare, or if you ask a cast member where a bathroom is many times they won't answer you/ "don't know"...? This is not Disneyland pay-out-the-nose standards. People who work at Walmart seem to statistically have better attitudes. The grounds are supposed to be maintained top-notch. There are docuseries about it, as customers/guests we are told this is why we pay so much etc....But there is trash scattered about regularly, the tables and rides are dirty, the bathrooms are anywhere from acceptable to horrendous. I get that it's an amusement park and with the high traffic it's expected they have rodents etc but I had never seen roaches there until one of the few last times we went in November 2019 and January 2020. Many of the bathrooms don't have working locks, hooks, etc...the tiles and other pieces falling off/missing, and not enough toilet paper, soap etc. I'm glad they have paper towels but unfortunately they do run out a lot and can't possibly control how wasteful people are. They should have updated the restrooms a long time ago and could stand to add at least one more. They added Galaxy's Edge and only one restroom. Galaxy's edge is ok. I can't definitively take a stand because I'm so mixed. The interactions, shows, and food is the best in all of Disneyland (Though again tiny portions for lots of money). We tried to get into the cantina 5 times and never had the chance. Did make light sabers which was very fun, not sure worth the price- couldn't throw in one extra light crystal per saber??? Spent too much on an interactive pet that really isn't worth it looking back. The atmosphere is cool but stagnant. I was disappointed that so far there is not Hoth area, Endor, Naboo, etc. The ride is pretty fun but not a favorite even though one of our family is a Star wars super-fan. The area in all is well spread out but has some random bottle-necked areas that don't make sense. The 4d theatre sounds like a lame feature imo. They could do much much better I have no doubt, doesn't seem very creative nor as immersive as it could be. Guest relations takes too long to visit, we easily spent 2 hours working with cast members for a disabled party member even when we already had a disability pass. No explanation why some rides would randomly switch to making us wait in the main line vs in the disability line. You have to "get lucky" for it to work how the website says it is supposed to. Rides break all the time still. I get that some are from the 60's but that's why it's expensive; to maintain that stuff. "Stuff happens" gets old when you realize how often for the time and money spent. Severely disabled niece was trapped on a ride for 40 minutes at the end of a taxing day, we literally were on the ground in a spot where it was safe to step off and we had to once they said it was "ok". They undid the safety latches yet we had to stay seated for some reason. All the child wanted was to stand up. We were given attitude even though we complied with their unreasonable demands. After the 40 minutes we were marched off the ride to be given a pass (after waiting for 10 minutes) to Splash Mountain in the evening. Which they seem to love to do. In the past we had been told they lessen the water flow on the ride at night, especially when it is cold (as it was). We were SOAKED. I can't help but wear the tin foil hat for this. Earlier in the day we barely got wet in the same position as before, and then we had to get off the ride in the evening, and spend $100 on warm dry clothing that we did not even like. Basic sweater, sweats, and socks for 2 people. (Husband refused to pay for self to be warm). Those clothes were washed twice (following directions) and started to fall apart. We had to change in a dirty smelly bathroom that had no tp after waiting 20 minutes for an open stall. Paying for parking is an insult to passholders, and really to most people. It used to be an optional convenience, but for a while in Anaheim there is literally no place within many miles of Disney that offers parking (most of the shuttles they used to have in the area aren't running anymore or ones that were free with parking are extra and are far away). Paying for parking you usually are told to park really far from the tram , once you get to the tram it's a discombobulated mess. Many times the workers running the tram are not motivated. You can tell they hate their jobs and will purposely milk their time doing anything. Regularly we had to account for sitting on the tram (fully loaded and ready to go) for 15-20 minutes. Plus the 10-20 waiting for it to show plus the ride etc. People regularly don't follow rules on the tram, people argue and even get into fights because there is no system. Adults will step on kids and push and fight to get on the tram to not have to wait at the end of the long day. Adding the politicized agenda to the parks is just going to make tensions worse. It's all result of build-up of paying so much to be disappointed and the mismanagement of crowds, etc. I don't know many times we were randomly hurdled into passageways that smelled of sewage after parades and shows. That used to be strictly not allowed because it would "destroy the magic". I actually liked it overall because we had no kiddo with us that time, and I was able to see behind-the-scenes. Also more grumpy cast members, a few rats, and more roaches...etc. LOL Because the security seems too low, and cast members and all underpaid, many guests are allowed to act despicably. Meanwhile we brought our niece whom is disabled and were approached by security several times because she literally was pushed to the ground by other guests and couldn't calm down, or the ride we promised would be open by the third day we stayed (in a row that time), would finally be open then broke down for 40 minutes..WE get approached but the people threatening to fight people, the people stepping on our niece, the kids running unsupervised hitting each other, that's all ok because they are not as easy to deal with as harassing someone with disabilities and their family. If you're going to eat it's better to go to DTD although you're risking spending that much more time in lines as well and won't get a park discount but most the food we had outside the park actually tasted like food. Massive complaints but we DID have good memories we made. Lots of nostalgia for me, on less crowded days it was a dream. But seems like the changes being made for re-opening are going to keep increasing the problems. At least for families that don't have a combined income greater than $300k. The magic that Walt wanted has been fading and as a business Disney can surely pander to wealthy fans vs giving the majority of people a chance to experience it. I think that's the way it's headed- people on welfare and the wealthy can share the park while the middle class moves on. What it cost pre-pandemic was barely worth it, hoping they would finally use the funding to improve the park (not just add more while neglecting the rest). The new attractions/ideas might look good ; like gold paint on a smelly stool.

it was my second Disney park visit, first one was in Paris. Park was great, in spite of weather was terrible, raining a lot and quite a few attractions were closed for maintenance. Cost was too high for budget traveler from ex-soviet union country-paid 509$ for 4 persons, one of them aged 6. It is around minimal monthly salary in my country. Local travel agency in my country was advertising cheap tickets as low as 70 eur, but that might only be true if you buy 5 days long tickets, which is overkill. Shopping on site was also expensive, my kid got all wet after one boat attraction and simple kids pants were ~24 $. Long lines on most popular attractions, fast track tickets are really useful. What I did not like is food service, we decided to use most of the attractions and leave lunch for the end, but when we arrived at one of the restaurants around 5:30, there was almost nothing left, most choices gone, only about one left to order. Family was really upset about that.

We can’t wait to go back. I was lucky enough to take my family just before covid hit North America hard and shut the parks down. It is truly the most magical place on earth. Dreams came true and the magic was everywhere.

The one and only, the original theme park, Disneyland. It's pricey in a little campy but it's one of those things you have to say you've done once in your life. And I'm not talking about the fake one over in Orlando. I'm talking about the real thing down in Anaheim. I don't care how old you are it will take you back to your childhood and that's the whole point I think. And if you have children this is definitely I'm about to do. But, be prepared to pay an arm and a leg to do it

Everyone knows how amazing Disney is! It is an all day affair and more! The different lands are creative and fun with rides around each theme. It is the cleanest amusement park even when there are a lot of people!
