  • We absolutely love this place! We visited here with 11 people and there was something for everyone! We were able to get him pretty quickly even during prime time which made me very happy because they had so many people working at made the lines move quick! we loved it that they served adult beverage is here! And that it had a relaxed atmosphere. We did use fast passes to ride the bigger rides and were able to get on many other rides just by waiting in line! Definitely the Disney magic just a little more relaxed then Disneyland. Can't wait to go again!
  • Grab your fast passes each day before 11 am! You'll be happy you did as you walk by those 80+ minute lines. They run out very quickly as well. A positive about California Adventures is the ability to purchase adult beverages unlike Disneyland. Soaring Around the World is spectacular! Especially if you can get in row 1 (you won't have any feet dangling to distract you from the amazing experience). It's a definite must see.
  • Some really great rides including the Cars Land or Radiator Springs details are great, the pier was very interesting like a fair or carnival. Wasn't sure if it was going to be as fun as Disneyland but was definitely impressed. Very mature with alcohol available in park. Went during food and wine festival, and they had some very creative cuisine. Will definitely be returning when the kids are bit older. The Frozen live show made it all worth the entry fee alone, performance, costume and stage design was Broadway level theater. Could definitely take more than a single day to get through everything. Felt like the park was as easy to navigate as Disneyland even without a map. Definitely would recommend.
  • The park is well made, very cool atmosphere around the whole park with different themes from the movies. I bought the fastpass, but I was only able to use it twice before everything got fully booked. But the lines weren't that bad, I waited 80 minutes for Guardians of the galaxy and the other rides were way shorter. At the end of the day I managed to do all the rides that I had planned to do. I was here during the food and wine festival ans did the wine tasting seminar. I think it was a bit short, but it was still interesting.
  • It's a safe place to indulge in the fantasy of a world where dreams come true. Shopping. Fun snacks. (Very little healthy food.) Colorful. Music. Parades and princesses. Hats galore. Amazing rides. Expensive.
