  • By far the best Food and Wine Festival! The Brunch Fried Chicken and Waffle is a MUST GET; the chicken was crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, and the orange popping jelly really tied the entire thing together. Another must get was the Buffalo Turkey Leg, it's a bang for the buck! It was around 13 dollars! and the same price as a normal turkey leg at Disney; it was topped with blue cheese and the buffalo sauce was just perfect. The Animal Cookie shake is also a MUST GET. Overall, had an amazing experience.
  • Absolutely loved it! When we went we took advantage of the fast passes which made our first trip such a success. We rode and visited every attraction in one day! The park attendants were so helpful and added to our visit. One tip I wish we had was about getting a good spot for the fireworks. If you wish to do this you must go early to the front of the park.
  • Came for the holidays and it was great. Came during the week it was great not to crowded. Got to do the whole park. Cant wait for marvel land to open next year. Had a great time eating all the holiday food they had all through the park. Bought my mom a new hat and they were able to embroider it for her. She loved it and it came out great. Love coming to the park for the holidays
  • This side of Disneyland is/was not as irritating at the actual "Disneyland" side. Although they did have a lot of construction going on also (it just seemed so odd because just a few years before you would hear or see anything being built until "the big reveal" at any of the Disney parks. This time there is scaffolding every where, at times you hear them working, other times you see the builders walking through the parks (both Disney California Adventure & Disneyland have a LOT of big refurbishing projects &/or big add on projects going on). It really takes away from the ambiance & the experience. Although we are glad that Disney adds on, they can't forget where they came from. They seem to be doing that... fast. It would be nice if they would maintenance the rides that they have already built, that people love. Because we had a lot of them break down on us in the last week, especially the last 3 days!) Hopefully Disney realizes that their tickets are already CRAZY expensive & won't raise the prices even higher! Once all of the refurbishment is done & the Avengers area is built, then hopefully the awe of the ambiance & the amazing experience comes back! Because that is what makes Disneyland, California Adventure (& Disney World parks) SO special! It's about being able to walk through those gates & lose yourself to the child in all of us. It's that feeling as all of your troubles, worries, etc just melt away the further you walk down Main Street. And most importantly, it's about getting back in touch with your family, friends, having fun & letting go for while. I truly hope that your vacations that you take, & the memories that you make, are amazing!
  • The park has vastly improved. I enjoy the food, drinks and themed areas. The park is extremely clean and the cast members are very helpful and hard-working. I didn't give it a higher rating because all Disneyland parks are very expensive and the lines and crowds are huge. There is no way a family who has saved their money and can only attend one day get their monies worth.
