Soaring Over California. If you can only get on one ride, get on this one. It's a very unique concept, and it's quite an experience. The whole mechanics behind it is really interesting as well.
THIS IS MY HOME AWAY FROM HOME! – I LOVE THIS PARK!!
Here is why. Best rides, best food, best atmosphere. The park is undergoing consctruction on some additions, but most of it is done. The new Carsland will be completely done in 2012!! Despite the reviews I have read on the park being a construction zone?most of what was under construction is now done!! I am the park every week, everyday and this park is so magical. It's more of a liberal park,you got the option of having a glass of wine at cocktail hour, but for those that don't think alcohol should be in theme parks, well there is a whole other park not but 2 feet away from DCA that does not offer alcohol! Personally sipping a Kunde Chardonnay at 5pm and watching park goers is relaxing. The prices are not outrageous to me?because it's a theme park and I expect to pay $6 for a glass of wine, heck that is what most charge anyway!
And with the addition of the new Little Mermaid Ride and World of Color, this park is not only got it, but in 2012 it's going to have much more!! So if you crave a corn dog, or want table seating at a Italian restaurant in the heart of the theme park ?this park is for you!
Get your money's worth, because this park doesn't have much and you'll be quickly disappointed.
Here's how you make the most of your visit:
1. Make sure you score a FastPass for California Soaring. It's the BEST ride in the whole park! I try to go as often as possible, if it weren't for the killer line! Oh yeah, if you're terrified of heights, it's still worth getting over your phobia for this one.
2. CORN DOG!!! CORN DOG!!! CORN DOG!!! Literally the BEST one I've EVER had! I'd go for the spicy. And if you've got buddies to share the cheese on the stick --- it's worth the heartburn.
3. ALCOHOL!!! Yes, a theme park where you're allowed to get inebriated. It's even ENCOURAGED since they've stuck a whole wine tasting section to represent Napa. If red, white or sparkling is NOT your thing --- there's Margaritas and Hefenweisen just around the bend.
4. ROCKIN' OUT to the Red Hot Chili Peppers on California Screaming.
5. Did I mention you get to DRINK and GO ON the rides? Just try not to puke!!!
Taking The Magic Out Of The Magic Kingdom – I felt like I was in a construction zone. Oh wait... I was in a construction zone.
I've been coming here every year with my daughter (for the last 7 years). Now that she's almost 17, I can feel the time that I have left with her to do trips like this, slipping away.
Talk about taking the Magic out of the Magic Kingdom.
The 'ocean' near the coaster and ferris wheel had been completely drained, and instead of shimmering waters, the guests were treated to a panorama of heavy construction equipment (I'll try to upload pictures).
The ferris wheel was surrounded by scaffolding, in preparation of attaching a large Mickey face to the centre of the large wheel.
There were plywood walls in many areas for the purpose of limiting the exposure of new development. One bridgeway was closed to the public and covered in green tarps.
When I am charged full admission prices, there are certain associated expectations that come with it. I expected the seaside boardwalk atmosphere I paid for. Not today. Not this week.
I can appreciate the fact that Disneyland is adding new attractions, which should be available in the Spring of 2010. I just wish I knew about if beforehand. There was nothing about the construction on their website.
Bring on the changes to this park – I recently heard that this park will be going through some major changes in the next few years. Thank goodness! This park has so much potential and does have some decent e-ticket rides such as the Tower of Terror and Soarin over California. The biggest issue I had was that a lot of the attractions were un-original and uninspired. What sets Disneyland apart from other theme parks is the theming, originality and innovation in their attractions. Those elements are not in the majority of the attractions at DCA. Let's hope the changes they have planned will make DCA reach it's true potential as a Disney theme park.
Good stuff here – Aside from the fact that I work for the company and have free access to both parks, California Adventure has been growing on me as of late. I've been here many times over the summer, and while the main park will always hold my favor, I've come to appreciate what's available in CA. First off, California Screamin' is a blast, and actually goes upside down! Soarin' over California is relaxing and fun, and the Aladdin stage musical is cute and very well done. I wasn't such a big fan of Tower of Terror but I don't like sudden drops. The Muppets 3D Adventure is cute. I think the main draw for me is the Santa Cruz-ish Boardwalk. Having been to the real Boardwalk, I'm almost embarassed to say I prefer the one here. It's cleaner at least. But the main draw for me has to be the Ferris Wheel. Ask for a locked-off cab vs. the rolling one for a romantic experience at dusk. The one major drawback here is that they close at 9pm.
Almost Best Theme Park in the World! – I loved this theme park. it was so freakin awesome and i loved every minute of it! I would go there every day, but then i would get sick of it, as with any other theme park. It was nice to have two parks right next to each other, also. I reccomend going early in the morning or around lunch time. that is the best time to go.
1 st place – this them park is the best one i've ever been to my son loved California Screaming and also Grizzly River Run. I think that this is the best theme park ever. I highly recomend this theme park.
Second Time – Went on Sat May 20th. My second time there. First time was opening week and I was very disappointed in the rides. Went to ride Tower of Terror and that ride is the best in the park. Saw Aladdin show at the Hyperion Theater and was fantastic. The actor who played the Genie was almost as good as Robin Williams. He made the show. That was the highlight of the day. At the end of the day, we were saying we should have went to Magic Mountain.
GrEaT RiDeS, FuN MeMoRiEs..GrEaT! – I really enjoyed going to DCA. It really was fun and the memories are definitely perpetual. The Roller Coaster was such a thrill and quite enjoying. We went on twice before noticing that the time had passed by quickly. The water ride is quite thrilling and frankly a blast. The Electric Parade was priceless. The 3-D Movies were really exhilarating & humorous at the same time. It was definitely an experience and definitely something I'll remember for a long time. DCA is a true promiser. They DO come through! Great for the young ones. It's definitely a good idea to go during the week and not the weekend because of the crowd.
