“You have to go at least once”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

When you have just a day it can be stressful to hit all the rides. I'd suggest getting there during opening and making a beeline for the one ride you really want.

My buddy and I got a season pass and I enjoy just walking around more, if we don't hit a single ride because the lines are long it's still a good day. No pressure.

“A great day to experience”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

A great experience and worthwhile for a day visit.
The place has great atmosphere and I love the different themed areas. Walking through the Star Wars themed areas; having a drink in a saloon; and walking through Mickey Mouses' house are among some of the pretty cool things to do.

It is great to see the Disney characters come to life in the rides, performances, the parade, etc.
It is worthwhile to go visit this park, but, naturally, many of the rides and shows are targeted toward families and children. Nevertheless, I thought it was great.

Lining up was very annoying. Although they had 'skip the line' tickets, you still had some lining up to do and this took a fair bit of time. This is what probably put a dampener on the day.

“So much to see and do, but expect to wait.”
Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I did 2 days at Disneyland as part of our Honeymoon from Australia. It was the second time I had been. First thing you see is how friendly the staff are. Its small but it has a lasting effect. There are many good places to eat, though we loved the texas bbq in frontier land we ate there both days. Now the negatives, lines are very long and although fastpass is available you shouldn't have to spend your first 2 hours of your day lining up for passes so you spend less time in line..... then there is the joke that perfectly healthy people get walked around in a wheelchair to shorten their wait for rides......problem is it seems thats quite true and there seemed to be a lot. Its really offensive to those who are disabled. The parks themselves are fantastic compared to anything we have here but prices are a little pricey considering how long you are waiting in lines. I recommend the parks but come in cooler months to avoid large crowds. There is a ride you can do all day. Its called 'avoid the stroller', because I have never been hit by so many.

“old park-needs some renovations”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Some of the rides are just old and need to be redone. There were several rides that were closed for renovations or actually broke while riding them. This park needs a facelift!

“Better Than Disney California Adventure”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

I have been here two times in last three year. For me this is one of the best place in earth. It required minimum two days to cover this park alone. I like this one compare to Disney California adventure. If has something for everyone from adult to teens to kids. If you are planning to visit both the Disney Park and Universal Studio during a long weekend then the you should visit this park first. Open till 12 AM. Stay till the end to enjoy it in bits a pieces
