Disney California Adventure
Disney California Adventure Review
The sprawling Disney California Adventure, adjacent to Disneyland (their entrances face each other), pays tribute to the Golden State with eight themed areas that recreate vintage architectural styles and embrace several hit Pixar films via engaging attractions. In 2012, the park's entrance was revamped—visitors now enter through the art deco-style Buena Vista Street—and the 12-acre Cars Land and Radiator Springs Racers, an immediate blockbuster hit (FASTPASS tickets for the ride run out early most days) was added. Other popular attractions include World of Color, a nighttime water-effects show, and Toy Story Mania!, an interactive adventure ride hosted by Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and friends. At night, the park takes on neon-colored hues as neon signs light up Route 66 in Cars Land and Mickey's Fun Wheel, a mega-sized Ferris wheel on the Paradise Pier. Unlike at Disneyland, cocktails, beer, and wine are available, and there's even an outdoor dance spot, the Mad T Party. Live nightly entertainment also features a 1930s jazz troupe that arrives in a vintage jalopy.
