Wonderful video. You get to see lots of rides & attractions from Disneyland. My kids love it. This is our second copy of this video. Since our kids lost the VHS version, we decided to replace it with the DVD version.
Fun for ALL ages! (seriously)

"My 2+ year old has loved this video since he was 9 months old, and it's STILL his favorite kids' (non-movie) video!We bought a couple other Sing-A-Longs after this (Campout at Walt Disney World, and the Disneyland: Happy Haunting one), and they don't compare to this one. Those videos star cheesy kids who "act" for the camera and try to be cute. The kids in this video are really there to simply help create the environment, even though you see the same group of kids throughout the video. Plus, this video concentrates more on the characters and the attractions, than the kids (during the Haunted Mansion song, it stars only the Villians and you practically ride the entire ride!). Which makes it fun for adults and fans of Disneyland - it plays like a Disneyland home video! Also, this was filmed around 1989-1990, just after Splash Mountain opened. Which means you get to see several attractions and restaurants that are no longer there: the Rocket Jets, People Mover, and Submarine - all in pre-1998 Tomorrowland.My wife and I agree that the songs are also pretty good, even the original ones ("Making Memories" and "Walking Right Down the Middle of Main Street, USA" come to mind).If you're a fan of Disneyland and Disneyland videos (especially to get you in the mood before a vacation there), this is a must-own."
A Must Have Before a Trip to Disneyland

"This sing-a-long video is a "must have" if you are planning a trip to Disneyland with small children. Disney characters join with children in a variety of songs and dances as they tour the theme park. Small children (as young as one year old) enjoy watching the characters and kids in the video. They also enjoy the music. My daughter watched this video several times before we visited Disneyland. When we arrived, she was excited when she saw the characters. She waved and waved as the characters were familiar to her. The only downside is that the video is several years old. Some of the attractions are no longer in the theme park. Disney should really make an updated version of this video."
GREAT intro to Disneyland for tots -- DISNEY MAKE A NEW ONE

"This video/DVD is an ad for Disneyland. I used it to introduce our 2 1/2 year old daughter to the characters and the look of Disneyland. She loved it. I loved it. Daddy hated it -- 'cuz yes, it's an ad. Lots of sweet food, the Disneyland parades and rides and characters; like many reviewers he didn't like the concept of paying to watch an ad. But I honestly believe this helped our daughter enjoy the family trip to one of my favorite places ;-D Especially the teacups ride and Small World!
But now, several months after our trip, I appreciate a few additional things. This video is the only place I've heard a rare Sherman Brothers song, Makin' Memories, written for a Kodak-sponsored pre-show to a Disneyland attraction. It's simple, but the smooth bridge melody acts as a counterpoint to the rest of the song, it's really interesting. It's also the only full Rumbly in my Tumbly we've found, and Pooh Bear is now her favorite.
She's now three, and she still likes to watch the Disneyland video. She mixes up her own experiences with the movie's, for example she says she didn't like riding Thunder Mountain (which of course she didn't ride.) She does say There's the boats, on the Jungle Cruise.
This show taught her that the characters she loves are big. As big as Daddy. (Which translated later into "Goofy's like Daddy!" my favorite quote of the whole trip.)
It taught her that they like hugging kids. She still didn't want a hug, but she was happy to stand right next to them as opposed to running in the other direction screaming.
It prepared her for sitting still to watch shows and parades. It prepared her for the Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Haunted Mansion. (Yes, we took her on those; I wasn't scarred by my early visits either. She held tight to our hands and knew she was going in a dark place but she'd seen it before.)
My main advice to Disney is to make a new version. This was made before Toontown, before the Disney Princesses made it big, before the complete revamping of Tomorrowland, before Bear Country became the Hundred Acre Wood, before Toy Story and the Pixar collaboration. Yes, parents will bring their kids to Disneyland anyway, but an updated video showing kids enjoying the favorite Disneyland spots will make it easier to introduce the tiny ones, which in turn is easier on the parents, which makes them want to return sooner ;-)"
