Disneyland is a recreational theme park located in Anaheim, California (USA). The park, which opened in 1955, was created by Walt Disney, and took one year to build, at a total cost of 17.5 million dollars.[1]

When the park first opened, there were 18 rides or "attractions" contained in the themed areas within the park: Adventureland, Fantasyland, Frontierland, Tomorrowland, and Main Street, U.S.A. Newer rides and themed areas have been added over the years, and there are currently more than 60 attractions.[2]

Many rides incorporate characters from Disney cartoons and movies, and popular Disney characters can be seen in the park, including Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck.[3] Disneyland calls itself "the happiest place on earth" [4] There is also a larger group of Disney theme parks in Florida called Disney World which includes the Magic Kingdom [5]

Disneyland is also home to a feral cat colony, which make the theme park their home as they prowl and hunt among the attractions and scenery for rats. [6]
