  • The decision to include alcohol at this "family friendly" park was a mistake in my humble opinion. I have no moral compunction against alcohol, but I don't want to have to deal with it in crowds and l...  more »

  • Always fun for everyone. Use the Disney app and the max pass system...and easy way to manage your time. For just a little more $$ it's worth it and includes digital versions of the photos they take.  more »

  • This was AMAZING!!! My daughter loved the Animation Academy & Hollywood land itself. We went to the Animation Academy twice and we drew Goofy & Baby Dory. The Cars Race was AMAZING and definitely worth the long wait. The security is fine but as you get in line the workers can be rude. Inside the park it's just fine. I really liked this place. Definitely would come back. Keep up the good work!
  • Such a huge Disney adventure Park where elders and kids alike can enjoy various rides. The number of international tourists that it attracts is amazing! It requires at least 2 full days to go round the park leisurely. Roller coasters of various kinds, various twists and turns attract people who look out for adrenalin-rush. Equally calm and relaxing rides are also there. Number of eateries are there either to have quick bites and run back to the park or sit and relax and have a leisurely bite too. End of the day cracker-bursting of various colours and heights and sounds are very attractive. Free bus rides from and to the Park are available from important bus stands and car parking lots, that ferry tourists. Enjoyable to the hilt!
  • Always improving and reinventing itself, it is still amazing how much California Americana can be crammed into one park. So many interesting design elements reminiscent of all the best parts of California, with the addition of a heavy dose of Hollywood nostalgia too. Lots of new attractions. Good food selection. Has more rides oriented towards older kids, but plenty for the young kids too. Great theme park.
  • Some of the rides were really good however the wait time is really huge.. you can spend 2 hours waiting for a ride less than a minute.. we had my account pass too but still ended up with a lot of waiting.. however still worthwhile visiting despite the wait times.. the parade is excellent and creates a magical environment.. Kids absolutely love this place..
  • A beautiful space to walk around. There are lots of enjoyable rides too. I highly recommend the Cathay Circle restaurant. It has food quality that I would have never thought of finding at an amusement park. So many great things to do. We always buy a park hopper pass. Don't forget to bring dry clothes for after you get wet from the water rides.
