Sure, Disneyland is the top amusement park around the world and also the happiest place on earth! The admission ticket for Disneyland is quite pricey but, do you know that there are actually many things you can do while visiting Disneyland other than enjoying the rides and food there?
Here are that top 5 things that every Disney fans should know about Disneyland:
1. Free Stuffs
Besides their amazing attractions, Disneyland makes people want to visit them more often by giving some free stuffs! Things you can get for free when you visit Disneyland:
Disneyland gives out cute button badges for any celebrations and meaningful events. The cutest badge will be birthday badge which you can get from the City Hall. You can visit Disneyland on your birthday or any other day to get the birthday badge. Cast members will wish you happy birthday when you wear the badge. If you’re lucky enough, they might even sing a birthday song for you!
Another badge that catches our attention is the Honorary Citizen badge which Disneyland will give out only when you did something good.
Don’t worry about the designs as it changes over the time, which means you can collect different types of Disneyland button badges when you visit the theme park from time to time.

Note that there is actually pins exchange etiquette, so don’t go around touching another person’s lanyard or pins!
3. Time Castle
Back in 1995, Disneyland had a big celebration for their 40th anniversary. As a part of the celebration, Disneyland did a time capsule called the ‘time castle’ where they buried things so the children in the 21st century can see and experience those things. Now that you know about this, you must be wondering what are the things buried under Disneyland. The time capsule will only be unveiled on Disneyland’s 80th anniversary which means we can only see it on 17th of July 2035.
4. Club 33
There is a hidden club in Disneyland called Club 33 which can be accessed by members only. You might find VIPs hanging around in this 5-star restaurant. If you want to enter and experience Club 33, there are only 2 for you. Either you know someone who is a member or you pay up $100,000 for membership fees depending on the type of membership.
That is a big sum of money!
5. Secret Apartment
Above the fire station on Main Street, there is a small apartment. Walt Disney and his family used to live there as Disneyland was growing. This is the most historical place in Disneyland. The furniture in the apartment was left untouched so it has the originality just like how Walt Disney lived.
