If you are visiting Disneyland or California adventure, this little (well big) strip mall type area is a fun break from the hustle and bustle inside the parks.

It was not at all like what I was expecting. It is like walking into a wonderland. Definetly mostly for window shopping but definetly worth spending an afternoon. Dinner at the rainforest cafe was an amazing way to finish off the evening.
