When visiting Disneyland for the first time, you want to be sure you make the most of your trip. While it would definitely take multiple days to explore all the wonder and magic the park has to offer, the following great experience will give you a good place to start.

Take a Walk Through Tarzan's Treehouse

Located in Adventure Land next to the entrance of the Indiana Jones ride is Tarzan's Treehouse. The treehouse is placed atop a massive artificial 80-foot tall tree and offers a great view of the park. There's rarely a line, so it's an excellent attraction to experience between other rides. Take the stairs at the base of the giant tree and cross a rope bridge to experience the interactive inventions and see the story of Tarzan as you walk along his jungle abode.

Ride The Pirates of the Caribbean

Of all the attractions to choose from, The Pirates of the Caribbean is among the most popular. The line goes by fairly quickly, and once you get on it takes about 10 minutes to complete. It's perfect for all ages and a great attraction for cooling off during a hot day. While the ride is a water ride, your chances of getting extremely wet are quite low. There are so many little details throughout the different scenes that every time you get on it is like a new experience.

Watch the Fireworks

If the weather permits, the fireworks show is a must-see. The theme changes throughout the year, which makes it a great option both for people new to the park and experienced Disney travelers. This fireworks show is generally considered to be among the best you will find anywhere. The lights and sounds are perfectly coordinated for an immersive experience full of joy and kid-like wonder. For an optimal viewing experience, you will want to start by grabbing a spot to stand about an hour before the show begins. The best places to get the whole experience, including the projections and music, would be on Main Street USA or by the Its a Small World ride.

Eat at Cafe Orleans

Out of all the food options to choose from at the park, Cafe Orleans really stands out from the rest. They have amazing beverages that are made with an authentic New Orleans flair. The Disneyland version of the classic drink is non-alcoholic, but delicious nonetheless. For an entree, the Monte Cristo is a must-try. The sandwich features turkey, ham, and Swiss and is lightly battered, then fried and dusted with powdered sugar. Served with garlic frites, it is as good as it sounds. You will also find a variety of great desserts.

Shop on Main Street

At the end of a long adventurous day at the park, shopping in the stores on Main Street USA is a great way to start to settle down. Fans of art and classical Disney memorabilia should visit Disneyana. Inside you'll find unique artwork that each describes an experience at the park and around the world. Visit the Emporium to pick up classic souvenirs and pins before you head home. If you want a sweet treat before you leave, visit the Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor or the Candy Palace for a delectable snack.
