  • I’ve been to Disneyland and California Adventure many times and it’s always a great time. I highly recommend going whether you have kids or not (we don’t and always have a blast).  more »
  • Cars land is amazing. It looks just like the films! Out kids loved seeing the characters from the movie as well as the regular Disney cast. It felt less crowded than Disneyland as well.  more »

  • Absolutely a experience of a life time from the rides to small moments of peace. I personally ABSOLUTELY love Disneyland and California adventures. The food taste good very friendly people and the details is amazing. If you can I would definitely go here and just make sure you take time to soak in all of the good moments and your surroundings because after you leave you are going to want to go there again and again. The shows are amazing and so are the rides. The main attraction here is the Cars Land. The cars ride is so much fun and entertaining. There are also different things in California Adventures like the animation studios where you can draw your favorite Disney characters. Very fun and is absolutely a no brainier. You need to go!
  • Our first visit was during Spring Break and the crowds were not what one would expect. The longest wait was only 30 minutes (fast pass was even shorter!) Guardians of the Galaxy was by far the best ride! All of the characters spent several minutes with each child who wanted to see them, and posed for numerous pictures. The food was better than Disneyland, in my opinion. Overall, I found the park to be perfect for adults and children over 10, although all ages will enjoy it! We have already planned our next trip!
  • The staff was very helpful and friendly. They were always prepared to answer any questions I had. I also LOVED the baby care center. It was a quiet spot for my baby to unwind while the rain was dying down. So grateful for the staff there. Thank you guys for a wonderful day!!
  • It's Disney but different.. (plus they serve booze!) Having grown up with Disneyland pretty much in my backyard, I appreciate what California Adventure brings to the table. It's taken them awhile to nail down a direction but it finally seems like things are coming together with the inclusion of Marvel and Pixar. Love the special events. Just visited for the Food & Wine festival where we tried a handful of the snacks. Highly recommend the jalapeno popper mac & cheese and the lager cheese soup in mini bread bowl. Can't wait for the cove bar to reopen.
  • Starting April 2018, half of DCA will be new! Look forward to that. It's already a great park already. I love the Guardians ride and the Frozen show. Lots of great character meets. And TONS of great food!!! You'll have a good time for sure. Many complain about the increased prices, but I think Disney makes the experience worth what you pay. No other park can compare to the entertainment and attractions.
