  • As much as I'd love to say that Disneyland is my favorite park, California Adventure took the cake from the moment I walked through the gates. I've been going since I moved to Los Angeles in 2014 and ...  more »

  • I loved this place. I wish we had more time to see everything. You will need more than a day to explore this! Lots of fun and rides and the world of color is a show that hit home. Lovely!
  • What can I say... a great place to be a kid no matter what age you are. One thing that disappoints me though is that there really is only 3-4 major rides here and those 3-4 major rides are an absolute pain to wait for. BUT thats what you pay for when you come to these parks. With Tower of Terror going (depending one when you read this.. if its past Jan. 2017 is already done) leaving, it was a 2 hour wait.....actually... on peak hours (weekends mainly) you are going to have to wait 2 hours for any major ride. Soaring just opened, so 2 hours, Cars... DUH 2 hours, Ive even seen 2 and a half hours. So get there early, get fast passes and enjoy the rest of the park while waiting for the fast passes. There is tons to see and its a shame that we have to wait 2 hours for a ride and miss such a wonderful park.
  • 11/11/16: This is a review of Disneyland's Festival of Holiday's food festival. I love this idea! I think it's great to incorporate food from many religions. I'm sure there is more room for this event to grow and improve. I thought the food was decent. My favorite was the brisket and potatoes croquettes. I thought the sauce was a smidge to salty but the potato was tasty. I do think that they missed a great opportunity to include latkes.
  • Perfect place to have fun and hang out! Annual passes are the best way to enjoy the park all year long! Love the Cove bar and the Winery, great food, amazing drinks! Service is always perfect. We never get tired of the rides.
  • We really enjoyed our visit here, but be sure to do your homework and go on a slow day. Even on a slow day, though, the more popular rides can get up to 90 minutes of wait time. Be sure to use Fastpass effectively. I wish they had magic bands and I wish they had Fastpass for Midway Mania. The Colors show was excellent, make sure you get a Fastpass for that for priority viewing. It is by Grizzly River Run and is disconnected so you can get that and a Fastpass for a ride at the same time. Soarin was fun, but not as fun as the California version. The Cars ride is lots of fun, make sure you get a Fastpass and/or do single rider line as the wait can be lengthy. Food was good, we ate at Flo's V8 cafe and we were very happy with our food. Have fun!
