  • Amazing. Very intertainting. There is something for everyone. Hadn't been back since a few years. It's really changed a lot. The lot tour has 3 3d rides, that was unexpected! I have a 17 and 10 year old, they both had fun. Bathrooms are everywhere, so that was very convenient, no more long lines. Definitely check out Harry Potter the 3d rides, it's worth the wait.
  • Fantastic plaza with lots of stores and restaurants to choose from, solid middle to upper class income prices and plenty of tourist trap style shops selling tourist clothes and gifts. We really had a great time, very diverse clientele from every corner of the spectrum. Low and working class all the way to wealthy upper income types. Everyone is welcomed here. Really a great place to shop and have dinner.
  • I enjoy City Walk for what it is. It's totally a tourist trap that can get extremely busy once the mid-afternoon sun is gone. However just the people watching alone is fun and you can't help but get soaked up in the energy of the place. Parking can definitely be a sore spot for those who are just going to City Walk and not the theme park, but most places offer validation. The place is loud and gaudy, but that's half the fun.
  • Citiwalk maybe filled with your typical big chain restaurants and stores you will find everywhere. If you look closely you will find shops that are unique to Southern California. I had a wonderful visit there during President's Day weekend. I very much recommend that you get a pizza and drink at Blaze Pizza It's decently priced and the staff there is friendly. If you don't want to shop or get something to eat, the atmosphere and people watching are definitely worth it.
  • I've seen this place pretty much inside and out. Worked at one or two of the bars too. It can be a very fun time, when the day/night sets off right.
