Disneyland is a theme or an amusement park that first opened its doors on July 17, 1955. The first Disneyland was built in Anaheim, California. It is also known by a lot of people as ‘Happiest Place on Earth’. The one in California is the only one which was developed and built under Walt Disney's direct supervision.
There have been 726 million visitors since its opening therefore Disneyland has the highest cumulative attendance of any theme park in the world (as of December 2018). The park saw roughly 18.6 million visitors in 2018, making it the world's second most visited amusement park, falling behind the Magic Kingdom, the tourist attraction it inspired. According to a Disney estimate that appeared in 2005, the Disneyland Resort supports 65,700 employments, including around 20,000 direct Disney employees and 3,800 third-party employees (independent contractors or their employees). In 2019, Disney unveiled "Project Stardust," which involved extensive structural changes to the park to accommodate increased visitor numbers.
There are six Disneylands around the World. The six places are California, Florida, Paris, Tokyo, Shanghai and Hong kong. Each Disney resort has one "Castle park" or "Disneyland" and four other resorts has other parks.
