“Getting better”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Love the new World of Colors watershow - Carsland is kinda cool too. Opening up access between major areas a good idea!!
Need to put some sort of major attraction where Maliboomer was removed - there is no reason to actually go to that whole corner of the park. If you were going to get rid of something, that wild mouse you now call Goofy's flying school is a waste - need to get something more compelling going up that way. How about spending some of that infrastructure money in California?

“To many lines not enough rides”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Was a little disapointed with California adventure. Super long lines for a handfull of rides. Fast pass was not available. Could just walk by and look at the rides.

“A good "check-off" on our list of travel sites...don't need to return”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

January was a good time to go. Some of the lines were very short and the "speed pass" process helped make others manageable. Some of the signs indicating "waiting time" were accurate. Some were not. With some rides having a posted wait time of 15 minutes, we got right on. The Cars ride had a posted time of 15 minutes, so we got in line and followed the serpentine line for close to an hour. Can't imagine what this ride is like during the busy season. We went back during our "speed pass" time and it only took 10 minutes or so. So, "Beware!" Tips to offer: Go during one of the "off-season" times. Take care of all anticipated restroom needs before getting into any line. You just never know...Prepare to be patient in the lines...and hope for good surprised.

“Cars Land...just like the movie”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

What a great addition to CA Adventure!! They did a great job turning the movie into something real. The rides were great. The Radiator Springs Racers was great. The Floating Tires ride was a little hard to control, but still a blast. It was great seeing the kids having so much fun.
