You may be surprised to learn that roughly one-third of Disney’s guests visit the park without children. Disneyland® attractions include plenty of fun options for adults, whether you’re looking to reconnect with your childhood favorites or try something new. From thrilling rides to delicious dining, your time at “The Happiest Place on Earth” will certainly be memorable.



Experience a Different Side of Disney® as an Adult

Disneyland® provides unforgettable experiences for guests of any age – even grown-ups. It’s a place where you can let go of the stress of everyday life and return to the joy of being a kid. Let out your inner child as you race through the high-speed roller coaster of Space Mountain or visit the Wild West on the Thunder Mountain Railroad ride. The Haunted Mansion is certainly not to miss, and who wouldn’t enjoy a boat ride with the Pirates of the Caribbean?

For those over 21, the Cove Bar located within California Adventure offers a gorgeous view of Paradise Bay and Mickey’s Fun Wheel. The bar is a lively place to hang out and sip on beautifully creative drinks only Disney can concoct. We recommend the Fun Wheel and the Neverland Tea off the “secret menu.”


Fun Times at Downtown Disney® 

Downtown Disney® is beautifully lit up at night with access to dining, shopping, and drinks. There are many different types of cuisine to satisfy any palette. Enjoy steak or seafood, pizza or burgers, Mexican or Italian with a side of your favorite alcoholic beverage. Don’t forget to indulge in Sprinkles Cupcakes for dessert.

Noteworthy lounges and bars in Downtown Disney® include:

·       Tortilla Jo’s

·       ESPN Zone

·       Uva Bar

·       Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen

-       Naples Ristorante e Pizzeria

In addition to these classic night spots, live outdoor entertainment, and a luxury movie theatre appeal to an older crowd visiting the Disneyland® area. Plus, Splitsville Luxury Lanes will open in January 2018 and will be popular for its fun combination of dining, drinks, bowling, and entertainment.
