New Orleans Square is a themed land found at Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California. Based on 19th-century New Orleans, Louisiana, the roughly three-acre area was the first land to be added to Disneyland after the park's opening, at a cost of $18 million. It is exclusive to Disneyland, although a similarly themed area can be found within Adventureland at Tokyo Disneyland.

The word "square" is a bit of a misnomer, since the area does not resemble a traditional urban piazza as much as an intricate series of "streets" that weave around shops, restaurants and the Pirates of the Caribbean show building. It includes the only overnight accommodations in the park open to the public, the Disneyland Dream Suite, stays at which are often a prize offered through various promotions.

History

The land was opened to the public on July 24, 1966, with New Orleans Mayor Victor H. Schiro participating in the dedication ceremony. Schiro announced Walt Disney had been made an honorary citizen of New Orleans; Disney joked that the addition cost as much as the original Louisiana Purchase.

This was Walt Disney's last major public appearance at Disneyland before his death in December 1966.
