Several rides closed down and in general, the service was mediocre. Sorry I got a three day pass. One day would have been enough.

We visited at the end of April 2018 and a lot of stuff was not working here either. The Paradise Pier was almost totally closed. The big Mickey Mouse Ferris Wheel and Roller Coaster was not working as was the World of Color water Fountain. We had over two hour waits for Radiator Springs Racers ride, Soaring Around the World Ride, and the Guardians of the Galaxy Ride so you really need a fastpass for those rides. The Cove bar served alcohol but not sure the food was worth the half hour wait. The rides that were working were fun and we did get soaked on the Grizzly River Run! The eateries and restaurants were good and expect to pay $12-24 a plate. The Cove Bar has alcohol but not sure the food was worth the half hour wait.

It can get pricey with all the food and entrance fees but it’s worth every penny.

Go early and do all the good rides first as the lines get pretty long after about 11, when most people come to the Park.

Get the fast pass app as it saves you time!

After visiting Disneyland, we were hoping for a somewhat equal experience at California Adventure. Same price ticket but far less rides for teens and adults and no fast roller coasters. The only large roller coaster they have is closed as well as 4 other rides that day/season making the lines longer elsewhere. The only decent rides where Guardians of the Galaxy and Cars. Cars' fast passes were gone in 2 hours after park opened, so if you don't get one right away expect a 90-120 wait unless you split up as single riders then a 15-25 min wait. As 2 adults going, all Fastpasses were gone by 430pm and we rode everything that wasn't geared to 4year olds and left by 6pm. Very disappointed.

Did not enter the park until 11 a.m. Straight to Radiator Springs Racers. No Fastpasses available. Waiting time, 75 minutes. We did it. When taking children, some rides have to be experienced. The kids were troopers. They really enjoyed the ride. The rest of the park, we did not experience lines like that and were able to see a lot of the grounds.
