Critter Country, This is the land that the small animals from the Disney film Song of the South, known as "critters," have made their own. Throughout the area, you can see the critters' burrows and little homes, especially along the banks of the Rivers of America and on the slopes of Splash Mountain. A down-home back woods setting for splash mountains and the country bear play house.Critter Country is a land unique to Disneyland.

There's no version of this in the Magic Kingdom. It's a little area of Disneyland devoted to cartoon wildlife. So it's not Disney's Animal Kingdom by any sense of the imagination. Just think of it as a place where mischievous rabbits can play and a hug from a bear is just around the corner. Disneyland's Critter Country will always be part of my memories for something I'll never forget.

Tomorrow land is going into the future and to see what is really out there for you. Tomorrow land is my favorite land at Disneyland. There is no question about that. It houses some of my favorite rides and stirs up some of the most incredible memories. Some of these memories

are simply of attractions of old, for there have been more retired attractions in this land than in any other. I love to visit Tomorrowland early in the morning and then again late at night. Many times in the evening, a band will rise up from below at the Tomorrowland Terrace filling the air with music and a light atmosphere.

In conclusion, Disneyland is the greatest place on earth especially for the little young

children. Its every child’s dream to go an see Mickey. Even the athletes go after they win a world

serious or championship. That’s the first thing they say after every championship. Young

children, young adults an adults love going there to spend quality time with there family.
