Disney did such a great job on this park. I have heard so many negative reviews but I have always loved it and each and every time I come, they have changed something to better it. Job well done. Car's Land was awesome and so is Bugs Land for our little one. He was 1 inch too short for some... More

This park totally rivals sister park/neighbor Disneyland! From the moment you step in from Buena Vista St. to Paradise Pier, this park is fun! California Screamin, Mickey's Fun Wheel, Goofy's Sky School, Radiator Racers,Twilight Zone and Soarin are great attractions that you must-due at DCA. I would also recommend seeing Frozen-Live @ The Hyperion: Amazing Show! Food is fabulous and... More

World of colour -not to be missed ! However when choosing your viewing spot be aware that once the show starts many people will hold their camera up above their head at arms length to either video, photograph or view. Can block your photos or viewing - but don't let that put you off . Remember to try to get... More

The newer of the two parks, great roller coaster and water ride. California adventure is small but has plenty to do. Lots of good places to eat too

I thought that nothing could be as great as Disneyland but this is! Just across the concourse from Disneyland it has the most amazing rides. It is a completely different experience but fabulous.

My family of four had a Disneyland / California Adventure Park hopper pass and spent a couple of days at California Adventure Park and absolutely loved it, favourite rides were Radiator Springs Racers, Grizzly River Run and Soaring' Around the World. We were lucky as the park was quiet and didn't wait long for rides or fast passed. Pixar Play... More

We chose California Adventure Park over Disneyland Park because it seemed like it would be more teen- and adult-oriented (versus the child-oriented Disneyland), because it's newer, and because we mistakenly thought it would have better rides. I don't know how we would have felt if we'd chosen Disneyland, but we were profoundly disappointed in California Adventure. First, there are not... More

I prefer Disney here to Florida as it is the original, good variety of rides for all ages, not many queues when we were there, loved cars land and my granddaughter liked Luigi' s dancing cars and maters junkyard jamboree. Smaller than Disneyworld in Florida so easier for getting around with younger children.
