    I know I have, and it's a great place to photograph, I figured the majority of macrumors users are American, and most Americans have been to disneyland, So I made this to see how you guys capture the happiest place on earth in a few photographs. Anyway here's mine. Taken with a 8MP cybershot :cool: Didn't have D-SLR.

    Taken in 07, California Adventure pictures are welcome as well :p

    That's not Disneyland. That's California Adventure, which is very lame in comparison to Disneyland.

    And those gotta be older pictures, because the Sun Wheel has been closed for a few months now.

    When I went to Disneyworld it sucked the big one! I bought a 3 day pass and only went for two days! can't believe they don't allow you to do more than one land at a time. We then went to Universal Studios and that was packed! Much Much better!!

    I've visited Disneyworld Orlando 2 times now, but don't have any photos on my mac yet :eek:

    Do have some from Disneyland Paris where I go to almost yearly. (I'm from Europe)

    I'm always around there when it's Christmas and it just ads to the magic of the place. :D

    California Screamin is awesome. I rode it 9 times over 2 days. Tower of Terror 4 times as well (2 daylight, 2 night). No photos though... too busy riding!

    Maybe I should scan some old B&W's from the '63-'64 timeframe, as that's the last time we actually took photos while there.

    The last time I was at Disneyland was probably 1989 or 1990.

    I remember that I really like the Haunted Mansion, Star Tours and Space Mountain. There was also a car ride that you went around on a track in something like a Model T or some other 20's type car. I can not remember the name.

    For the most part I was not a big fan of Disneyland when I was a kid. Magic Mountain and Knotts Berry Farm had much more exciting rides.

    By the way. Was Disneyland in California always called California Adventure? Because I have always referred to it as Disneyland, that is the only name I knew of for the park as a kid. Though more recently I recall hearing the occasional ad referring to California Adventure. When I was a kid I always heard to it referred to as Disneyland.

    I imagine it was originally Disneyland since it was the first of them.

    California Adventure is the "new" park adjacent to Dizzyland. Separate attractions (and admission).

    To be fair, it did suck (when me and cwedl went). Universal was better. I have made the trip a number of times from the UK, but I guess the older you are, the worse it seems!

    I've been to three Disneylands. Tokyo Disneyland, Disney World, and the original here in Anaheim. Tokyo is and will always be the most memorable for me. There's nothing quite like hearing the high-pitched Mickey voice in Japanese.

    I don't think I ever want to go to tokyo disneyland, although, I must admit in a non racist way, they would pull off a great 'Mulan' musical.

    I'm a passholder so I go to Disneyland/DCA all the time. Living 15 minutes away doesn't hurt, either.

    I have tons of pictures, but here's the only two I have online:

    I posted this one on the tilt-shift thread. That was done in PS, but I'd love to own a TS-E.

    im 23 and i go there quite a bit. It's a pretty fun place, there are rides you never get tired of like indiana jones, space mountain, haunted mansion, pirates of the carribean. Also the new Toy Story Mania ride at California Adventure is awesome.

    Now that looks pretty cool. I have been to Disney World in Orlando but that looks so much better. I would love to go, but just live too far away.
