    Oh yes!  I have never been with kids.  We used to live in So. Calif. and my husband's dad got us tickets thru the aerospace industry.  We went once a year and had a ball.

    Very much so.  Why?  You can act like a kid yourself.  Ride the kiddie rides, eat junk food, have your picture taken with one of the characters roaming the park.  It's a chance to be a kid again and to put your adult life on hold for a day.  We don't have a chance to do that too often, and Disneyland gives us the opportunity to for the day.

    Just shut the cell phone off, don't worry about the bills, and enjoy it.  One day at Disneyland can be very therapeutic.

    I have only been to DisneyWorld and not Disneyland. Two adults can have a fantastic time because there is no maddening rush to get autographs, you can skip the line for the Dumbo ride and just take your time. It is truly a magical place to visit.

    I'm a firm believer in the principle that if you cannot have fun at Disney, you cant have fun anywhere.  I go several times a year to the parks on both coasts.  I like to go during the week so there are FEWER kids there, and I can ride Space Mountain a dozen times in a row! 

    If you go to Disneyland in California try Steakhouse 55.  My favorite restaurant in the United States.  Saying a lot considering Ive been to places like Bern's and Peter Luger's.

    Most def! God knows I adore my kids, BUT.....
    1. Less whining
    2. More fun "big rides". Less kiddie rides.
    3. 2 entire mortgage payments less expensive which results in not feeling AS sick to your stomach about buying a $6 bottled water vs. 8 of them.

    (Sorry kids. Tis true)

    I have to agree with the rest of the gang, and I believe that this applies to most other amusement parks except those designed "just for kids". 

    An adult without kids can have even more fun than one that brought their kids for the sole reason that there's one less factor they have to pay attention to.  They don't have to watch the kids, feed them, take them to the restroom or change diapers, respond to their crying, wait in lines for rides that are ONLY for kids, carry them when they're tired, run after them when they've darted off into a sea of chaos.  Yeah, I'd say we can have more fun without kids.

    Yes, definitely . Disney has much more than kiddie rides. You can go for the rollercoasters, the parades , the performances etc. And I am sure, you would definitely recognise many famous Disney characters, regardless of how old you are now.
