After coming to Disneyland and California Adventures for years, this by far was our worst experience. Coming during Thanksgiving, I expected large crowds, but I didn’t expect to miss the magic of Disney. There were cast members arguing, standing around in groups talking about what they do to get ready in the morning, and very few that made the experience magical. While standing in very long lines, the rides would stop, and we’d be told that the ride was closed and to turn around and exit. This happened multiple times during our 5-day trip. At one time, 3 of the big rides closed down. It was weird, and it felt like Disney was playing games in trying to move people around.

With no fast passes, you waited and waited and waited with no reprieve like in days past when you could wait in line and then use a fast pass. On both Radiator Racers and Web Slingers, people were coming in groups and cutting through the line. They could have paid extra, but when we asked cast members about it, they denied it was happening. Additionally, there were people cutting in line multiple times. The wait times on the app were not realistic.

The food was not anything great, regardless of a hike in prices. We did like the virtual order. The Christmas decorations were great. The last day, we didn’t go to the park. It was too crowded. My recommendation would be to wait on a trip until Disney gets their act together.

If you want to ride Web Slingers, go straight there first
Nov 2021
Pixar movies (Cars, Toy Story, Monsters Inc, etc) themed rides and lands as well as Marvel themed rides and lands are in CA Adventure. When you enter the gates, both of those are either straight ahead to the back of the park or on your left hand side once you get to the first intersection inside. The actual "California" themed parts of the park on your right hand side.

We were so used to making a b-line for Radiator Springs racers first thing in the morning that we didn't think to go to the new Web Slingers ride first. Usually we would go to RSR first, then Guardians and have pretty much no wait for either. When we got off RSR, Web Slingers was already at a 50 minute wait!

Overall I think this park has the better rides for teens and adults. It's close though.

Awesome family experience back open for you

Wow, so great that the park is back open. New Star Wars and other theme rides and experiences are best ever. Covid safe, well managed. Perfect for the whole family.

Nice park.

I loved this park. It was pretty busy, more crowded than I expected, but we still had a great time. Loved the festival of foods. Loved that it was do-able in a day. Cars land was so fun.

Fun Time!

Dinseyland California is a family favorite and preferred over Disneyland. With the elimination of the Fast Pass, however, lines are incredibly long right now despite claims that the park is not at full capacity (this was Nov 11, 2021).

Dining is also difficult. Despite going on to the app 60 days prior to our trip, we were never able to secure meal reservations for our party of six, which was frustrating. Additionally, the lines are so incredibly long for food and the wait times when ordering from the app are one hour or more. So, plan way ahead or plan to be hungry while you wait an hour plus (whether in line or via the app for pickup) for food. This goes for water too, which is an even bigger issue. Both resorts need to figure this out as children need water and there just aren't enough fountain filling stations around. Purchasing water and food should be much faster and easier.

Overall, kids really love it here so pack snacks and water and prepare for long waits!

Living the dream, knowing Walt walked the walk here for his daughters.

A Daytrip where dreams really do come true. Every corner brings new experiences, go for it. Rides are nearly all family focussed, don't be scared, they are there to enjoy not to scare you.

The order by phone is horrible, and if your phone does not work you will be very hungry.

Disney needs to get their act together. For what they charge now, that app to order food should work way better. So very disappointed in our trip.

Fun park with some new rides/areas
Oct 2021
The new Avengers campus is cool if you are into Marvel movies. The Guardians of the Galaxy re-theming of Tower of Terror is fun (although I prefer the original). The theming in Cars Land is great. It's a smaller park and with the long lines due to no fast pass system currently is the reason I gave it a 4/5.
