    The most magical thing about Disneyland is entering Mainstreet with the animated windows, the bustle of double decker buses, and knowing that at the end of the street is the hub to all the adventures that await you for the rest of the day.

    My most magical memory was catching a bite to eat just as the sun was coming up over the rivers of america. It was the 25 hour 25th birthday party and the park was nearly empty aside from costumed CM's wondering the banks of the river.

    My most magical moment at DL was when I was four. Mind you this was only 12 years ago. lol.... Anyway, I had spent the whole day looking for Cinderella. We didn't even go on any rides, that's how obsessed I was. So finally when I found her (after hours searching), I said "Cinderella, where's your prince?" and she said "oh, he's getting ready for the parade tonight." she could tell i was amazed by her presense and she said "At the parade I will wave to you special"
    And... at the parade.. she did!! I was in shock. (remember I was only four at the time) But that moment makes me cry every time I think about it.

    For me it's walking through the tunnel beneath the railway from the enterance into Main Street.

    It makes my heart swell till i think it's gonna bust with happiness.

    Most: Like many others have said...

    Walking through the tunnel on to Main Street, no matter what music is playing, it sounds like Disneyland.

    Second most: Walking through Sleeping Beauty Castle and hearing "When You Wish Upon a Star"

    Yep, Disneyland is my escape. I try very hard to leave the outside out when I'm in. There's time enough for all the outside stuff some other time.

    I went to DL for the 1st time in 2000 when my daughter was 2 (I was a single mom and the trip was a special Christmas present from my boss, who couldn't believe I'd never been)

    There are no words to describe the magic you feel when you 1st walk through Main St as an adult, but looking at everything through your child's eyes as well (OK I'm almost crying writing this, but I know off all people you guys would understand)

    We've been back every year since, and this Feb we are getting our 1st APs!!

    Disneyland is pure magic. My daughter is 7 now and her most vivid vacation memories always involve a Character meet..."remember when Pluto licked my head mom? remember when I told Snow White I was going to be her for Halloween and she said I would make the best Snow White ever?..."

    Just the feeling of being there! That feeling that your welcome, and that you're going to have a great time. (Whenever I go over to DCA this quickly evaporates, but comes back in full upon return)

    Look Down.

    Seeing the looks on Kids faces as they see it. Whatever they are looking at. Waiting in anticipation for a ride. Watching a parade, Seeing thier favorite character. Winding up thier day with the Fireworks. Just enjoying a moment of being there. it is in thier faces i see the true magic of Disneyland

    THEY are the true heart of Disneyland.
    If anyone ever forgets what is magical about DL, this is all they need to do

    I agree with everyone. My kids have a disney sing a long that has the song I'm walking right down the middle of main street usa. So everytime we go I hold my daughter's hand and we sing that song walking down main street.

    I love that song. I'm walking right down the middle of Main Steet U.S.A.

    Oh if only I was.

    When I was at Disneyland for the anniversary, I had so many magical moments. A special one for me, was watching the 3 children I was traveling with spinning in the golden tea cup. I took many photos of that.

    Re: Most Magical things at the Disney Parks?

    The #1 magical thing that keeps me coming back is the escape, the feeling of removal from the outside world. The #2 magical thing is that everyone who visits there can feel - and act - like a kid. I was there last Saturday (12/17) and I went to the Tiki Room, and I was surprised and enormously gratified to see everyone singing along with the songs and clapping after each one. It was wonderful.

    I am looking forward to a magical moment and that is to introduce my grandson to the magic of Disneyland.
