Wife and I went to Disney California Adventure when it first opened and there wasn't much there in respects to rides/attractions. Now having just visited again in 2014 there has been a huge expansion with Bugs Land and of course Cars Land. Disney has done a great job expanding the park so that it appeals to a wider audience. The lines on some rides can be super long so use the fast pass system as much as you can. The fast pass for the Radiator Springs Racers were all gone by 9:15 or so. If you want to get on them this should be the first fast pass you get when you get in the park or get in line for an hour or more to ride. We went with our 3 y/o Son and there was plenty for him to ride on and enjoy. The food at Disney Parks is always expensive so either plan for that or bring your own. We had a great time, but didn't stay for World of Color and will make it a point to do so at our next visit.

Our family (4 adults) had visited both Disneyland and the California Adventure Park on 2-day Disney Passes, splitting it for 1-day Disneyland and 1-day California Adventure. We all found the California Adventure park to be more enjoyable for us than Disneyland, where the rides and entertainment shows appear to be more directed to adults.

We found the new Cars Land at the California Adventure Park to be simply Great! The popular Radiator Springs Racer attraction had long waiting lines even at 8:40AM, but was definitely worth the wait. The Grizzly River Run ride was also very fun but several of us got quite wet from the splashing waters of this thrilling ride. Also, not to be missed in the evening is the World of Color light show. This light show of Disney characters on a backdrop of a curtain of water spray was very entertaining.
Overall, we all enjoyed the California Adventure Park very much.

We purchased a 4 day hopper pass for disney and California adventure park.
We really enjoyed California adventure park, one day in this park is plenty of time to get everything done. Ride waits varied between 5 minutes to 50 minutes depending on time of day etc. you can get fast passes on a few rides or I would recommend doing single rider if you don't mind getting split for your friends and family, as you get on rides much quicker.
The parade in this park was I believe better than the disneyland park as was more interactive with the crowd, expect to get a bit wet.
The Aladdin show was very good well worth seeing, as was the nightly world of colour show.
Plenty of food options in the park, or bring your own

Upon check in, valet unload our luggage and park our van. Even when though our room wasn't ready they held our bags until we could get in. The valet even retrieved shoes from our van. Rooms were very clean. The beds were very comfy and so were the pillows.

The most awesome ride was Grizzly River Run. Some of the rides were broken down in the middle of the day. Our party was dissapointed since we tried to get on California Screamin' about 5 times throughout the day but couldn't as it was closed down everytime we went there.
