Seriously fun! 12/31/2016 by Jodi Pew
Ohmegosh! I was so surprised and delighted with all that DCA has to offer! Cars Land and It's a Bug's Land are absolutely PHENOMENAL! My travel buddy and I laughed so hard while on the attractions in Cars Land. I only wish I could have spend more time there. I guess that means I'll be making another visit soon!

Getting better all the time! 5/6/2007 by Ser Alan
We recently had a chance to spend a couple of days cruising California Adventure.  Many improvements have been made, including the addition of the Muppets and Monsters Inc.  Although I do miss Millionaire and the Soap restaurant and the improv theater. Meanwhile, all kinds of new kiddie rides have showed up just past Tough to be A Bug (another fun show!); I give it a four, not quite a five yet but its getting there with those money ticket rides like Soaring, my favorite rollercoaster, and Tower of Terror!

Disneylame 9/8/2006 by Troy Miller
I really think you guys are being way too easy on this park. It's laid out badly. It's themed badly. The "California" theme gets diluted more and more with each ride they add. I want to like it. I love Disney, but Michael Eisner, Paul Pressler and Barry Braverman created a huge dud. Disney came out with two parks in 2001. Disney's California Adventure(DCA) and Tokyo DisneySea. Take a look at DisneySea and then look at DCA and tell me one of us didn't get the shaft. They spent a little over 600 million dollars to build DCA and the Oriental Land Company spent 3 billion dollars on DisneySea. That's Billion with a "B", folks. Some of the rides were just horrible. Does anyone remember Superstar Limo? They've replaced it with a cute Monster's Inc. ride which I rode. It's an improvement but they have so much farther to go. The Golden State area is designed pretty well. The Warf looks nice but needs a little "Disneyfying" to make it magical and some kind of band t Read reviews by this author

fun,fun,fun 8/7/2006 by Rachel Fletcher
I really like the new park California Adventure i think its added alot of people to the list of people who like Disney.  All the rides are very cool rides. I think that there is something for everyone there, if you dont like the crazy ones you can go on things like grizzly river run, and if you dont like fast rides at all, there are rides for those people too. My favorite ride there is Soarin over California. It's a great ride. My nephew loved California Screamin and went on it about four times. I truely belive that you can have fun there, even if you dont go on any rides. All the rides there are so neat, i think they went crazy with Tower of Terror, everything looks so real. We stayed in the Paridise Pier hotel, its really nice. I cant wait to stay there again. Read reviews by this author

Great RollerCoaster and plenty of eats! 7/31/2006 by Ser Alan
I have really enjoyed the California Adventure every time I've been there I know there are purists out there who poo poo the new park, but I think it has really brought the Disneyland California experience up a couple of notches. There's nothing more fun than staying in the wondrous new Grand Californian and walking out the back door and into a theme park!  My favorite thing at the California Adventure is the big wooden roller coaster California Screamin', what a fun ride! Kind of like the Boardwalk roller coaster in Santa Cruz but on steroids. I also really enjoy Hollywood Backlot; very reminiscent of MGM Studios in Florida. They have great shows on the street and in the theater and of course I love the Tower of Terror THe other fun thing about California Adventure is all the eating opportunities, a broad range from fancy sit down restaurants to n Read reviews by this author
