Disneyland might be geared towards children, but it’s a place adults love too. Built back in 1955, it’s the only Disney park that was developed under Walt Disney’s direct supervision. And it certainly knew how to make an entrance: it was unveiled during a press event televised on ABC.
It’s changed over the years, of course, adding several additions including an entirely new park (Disney California Adventure Park that was built in 2001). It’s also removed and added rides, usually as a result of new movies and new characters.
To say Disneyland is popular is an understatement – theme park experts predict that about 44,000 people enter the park each day
Since 1955, it’s played host to more than 600 million people, or twice the population of the entire US. It’s a huge employer too. It employs 25,000 staff members, with 30 different languages spoken among them.
Disneyland: The Happiest Place on Earth
While Disneyland has long held the reputation as being the “Happiest Place on Earth,” it’s certainly not the highest place on earth. Disney isn’t down with dope – Goofy isn’t getting goofy in the back of Space Mountain.
Disneyland specifies in their rules that cannabis isn’t allowed on the park’s premises, not even medical marijuana used as a treatment for a disease. But Mary Jane isn’t the only person non-grata – Jim Bean is also outlawed (as well as other types of alcohol), strollers over a certain size, scooters, toys that look like weapons (yes, even squirt guns), and actual weapons.
As for alcohol specifically, Disneyland has quite the reputation for being dry, but they do serve alcohol in one place: Club 33
Club 33 is located in New Orleans Square – it’s one of the most exclusive restaurants in the entire world. Members are extremely limited, but finances usually limit people all on their own: membership costs 10,000 dollars per year and that doesn’t even include the 25,000 dollar initiation fee….per person. Club members include presidents, world dignitaries, and celebrities.

While taking pot into Disneyland will probably get you escorted off by Sheriff Woody (at least if you get caught), there’s plenty of land outside the gates that allow you to imbibe. Just do it at your own risk; the Haunted Mansion is a lot scarier when you’re paranoid.
