  • One of the best amusement parks my family and I have been to. The rides aim towards the older crowd (ages 8 and up) but there are definitely rides available with a short wait time that can be appealing to younger riders. A must do is the Guardians of the Galaxy ride! Keep in mind though that the peak times to visit the park is the late morning until the evening. If you want to enjoy the most coveted rides (the ones with a long wait time!), go before or after that. It's best to target between 8:00am and 9:30am.
  • California Adventure is totally different from Disneyland. It has more of a hang out vibe. There are less rides, but they're still good. But it's a place to walk around, have a drink, eat some food. It has a more relaxed and wide open atmosphere. The food festivals are the best times to go there, since there's so much more to do. The Animation Academy is a unique experience where you can learn to draw beloved characters, and I totally recommend doing it when you can. There's a lot to do if you know where to look. When you want a more relaxed day than one spent at Disneyland, California Adventure really does the trick.
