    Disney's California Adventure

    by meteorologist1 Updated Jul 19, 2005
    Hollywood Tower Hotel

    Disney's California Adventure as well as Disneyland are two great theme parks that offer fun for the whole family. You won't be disappointed at all. This is the happiest place on Earth! Having been to Disney World in Florida, I have the impression that these two parks are smaller than the ones in Florida. But the fun is same! My favorite remains the Tower of Terror elevator drop at the Hollywood Tower Hotel (which the Disney-MGM Studios in Florida also has). There are many duplications in the rides and shows between the California and Florida parks though, but there are some special ones in California like the excellent Aladdin musical spectacular and Soarin' Over California.

    A California Adventure

    by spgood301 Written Aug 7, 2005
    California Adventure-Not the GGB though

    It's California Adventure, Disney's newsest park, right across from Disneyland. It's more of an adult park. The kids will enjoy it for a while, especially the 3-D Muppet show, but they'll soon start dragging you across the street.

    My favorite part was the simulated flight over California, where you "fly" over places like Yosemite, San Francisco, Palm Springs, Monterey and, yes, LA. Beware though-if you're afraid of heights like me, it may be a bit of a nail biter. It's quite an attraction though, and I'm glad I did it.

    If you're planning Disneyland trip, I would give California Adventure no more than a half a day. It's got some fine attactions, but it's not worth a whole day.

    California Squeamish

    California Screamin'

    It's actually California Screamin', and it's the big roller coaster at Disney's California Adventure park. I'm not much of a roller coaster guy, but it was quite fun-I didn't even scream. Come to think of it, I don't know if that's good or bad!

    More educated Disneyphiles I know criticize California Screamin' for not having a "story", like most Disney rides. It's really just a Disney roller coaster. But try it, it's still fun. And, if you look, it's got Mickey!!!

    A Dream Come True

    Try to arrive early and get on the most popular rides first. To visit Disneyland is magic. Rides I enjoyed most were It's a Small World, Jungle Cruise, Thundermountain Railroad, Splash Mountain. Fantasmic was the night show when I was visiting - it was so good I saw it twice.

    Happiest kids on earth...

    Disneyland

    If you're visiting the LA area and you have young kids, this is THE place to go. They will love you for it. There's other stuff that will keep parents interested as well, the parades, the fireworks, and the rides.

    And they just recently build California Adventure so buy tix to both to save money.

    You cannot come to L.A. and not visit DISNEYLAND!
    If you have time to see only one of Disney's parks in California, choose Disneyland! Disney's California Adventure is okay on the fun scale, but nothing beats the original. You don't have to bring a kid to enjoy the place, you just have to enjoy acting like one. Best time of year is Feb-May, to avoid major tourist season and big lines. Be prepared for a one or two rides to be closed for maintainance this time of year, however. If you go during the busy season, make sure to make use of the 'Fast Pass.' Also, the nighttime show 'Fantasmic' is worth the cost of admission alone! I know the location of every bathroom, restaurant & drinking fountain in that place, so let me know if you're planning a trip & I'll help out as I can!

    Visiting Disneyland !

    by dragontml Written Dec 28, 2003

    Does anyone go to Los Angeles and not visit Disneyland?

    Apparently the happiest place on earth ?

    The park is divided into four different lands: Adventureland has a jungle theme and features Indiana Jones and the Forbidden Eye;
    Frontierland celebrates the myth of the Wild West;
    Fantasyland devotes itself to Disney's favorite characters; and
    Tomorrowland is (you guessed it) all about the future.

    We visited Disney California upon its opening. 2001 was their opening year. Great experiences for everyone.

    Disneyland is a magical place...for kids. If you intend to go there, I suggest a weekday; otherwise, expect to wait longer for the rides.

    The original theme park. A delight for children of all ages, and especially kids 1-9. Take I-405 south to SR-22 east, exit Harbor Blvd north; or take I-5 south to Harbor Blvd south.
