For all the would-be pilots out there and all those "Top Gun" fans, the Flightdeck Flight Simulation Center is for you. Here, you can pretend you're taking off, dogfighting, and completing death-defying aerial maneuvers in fighter jet and Boeing 737 flight simulators that make it feel real. 

And in case you were wondering, recent visitors said it's nothing like a computer game. Reviewers said the graphics and sound in the simulator made them feel as if they were actually flying. You also have the option to change into a flight suit, which past travelers said only enhanced the experience. Visitors also praised the staff and instructors for their clear and informative presentation. The minimum age to participate is 11, so if your tweens or teens grow tired of Disneyland, consider making a stop here.

You'll find it less than 5 miles southeast of central Anaheim. Keep in mind that you'll need to make reservations at least a week in advance. If you're planning to visit with a large group, you should book even earlier. The center is open Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Prices vary depending on which simulator and duration you choose. A 35-minute "flight" in the fighter jet simulator (a 65-minute experience) costs $59 per person. Flights in the Boeing 737 simulator range from $109 to $398. For more information on the Flightdeck Flight Simulation Center, visit its website

#1 Disneyland Resort

Many travelers say this original Disney resort lives up to its motto as "The Happiest Place on Earth." You'll find three unique areas inside Disneyland Resort: Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure Park and the Downtown Disney District. The main park is still the favorite among reviewers and frequent guests, as it harbors several themed areas like Tomorrowland, Frontierland, Mickey's Toontown and its latest attraction, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, which has brought a whole new level of excitement to the park. While not all the "Star Wars" rides are available (rollout continues until early 2020), the Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run ride and the themed shops and eateries that are open have garnered high praise from visitors.

Meanwhile, at California Adventure, you'll find Golden State-themed lands like Paradise Pier, which is modeled after California boardwalks similar to the one in Santa Monica, and exciting new attractions like the "Guardians of the Galaxy" ride in Hollywood Land. Visitors can also explore the worlds of "The Little Mermaid" and "Cars." For a tasty meal and some entertainment, head to Downtown Disney.
