    21 Don't-Miss Attractions For Kids At Disneyland

    Because utter frustration kind of goes against that whole happiest place on earth vibe.

    Disneyland is a whole lotta awesome for kids to take in.

    1. Start slow. There's plenty to see and do on Main Street USA.

    2. There's almost always a show going on somewhere on Main Street, whether it's the Dapper Dans or even Mickey himself conducting the famous Dixieland Band.

    3. Main Street is also a great spot to catch a parade.

    4. Visit the Hook and Ladder Company.

    5. Or pick up the Disneyland Railroad, which will take you throughout the park, giving your kids a chance to catch their bearings before launching into anything.

    12. And no trip to Fantasyland would be complete without a visit to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.
