Pros:The rides and the shows were good.
Cons:Bad service, expensive food, rude cashiers, long waits, overpriced
The Bottom Line: It's not worth the money. Other amusement parks are cheaper, and a better time. Disney World in Florida might be a better bet.
My husband and I went to Disneyland and Adventure Park to celebrate his college graduation. we are from Indiana, so we flew out to California and visited other places as well, such as Universal Studios and Seaworld- both of which we had a great time. We saved Disneyland for last because we were both excited for it, but boy, were we disappointed! We went to Disneyland on a Monday and it was completely packed. As we entered the park, we saw that the Matterhorn was down for the season. We were disappointed, but we entered the park and headed for Space Mountain. After waiting in line about 20 minutes, the ride shut down and they didn't know how long it was going to take to fix. We decided to move on to the Indiana Jones ride. We walked over there, and found out that it was broken down as well. We had wasted an hour by this point and were becoming frustrated, so we decided to eat at Pizza Port over by Space Mountain. The prices were outrageous! We paid $4 for two breadsticks, and over $7 for one slice of pizza! But the most frustrating thing was that the food wasn't even good. When we go to other amusement parks, such as Kings Island, the food is expensive, but at least it's good. By midafternoon we found some rides that weren't broken down. For dinner we ate at The Golden Horseshoe, and we were once again disappointed by the price and the taste. It was $26 for two small meals and one drink. Wednesday we went to Adventure Park. We went straight over to the big roller coaster, California Screamin', but, it too was broken down. We rode a few other rides and we surprised how small the lines were there. For lunch, I was wanting a pretzel, so we found a pretzel place on the map and headed towards it. When we got over there, it was behind the construction wall, and there wasn't a way to get over to it. We decided to do pizza instead so we found it on the map, went over to it, and once again it was behind the wall. It should not have been on the map if you cannot get over to it. Frustrated and starving by this point, we walked over to the other side of the park to a cafe. I got a sandwich and my husband got a bowl of clam chowder and a cookie, and we split a drink. $28 was our total and again, the food wasn't good, nor was the service. We waited about 40 minutes in line while there was about 12 workers there, 8 of which we standing around not doing anything. They were moving very slow. My bread was hard and it was stale. Not to mention there was not place for us to sit. They had about four restaurants altogether beside each other, and not enough place for everyone to sit and eat. We had to stand there with our tray and wait for someone to get done eating. After we ate, we watched Aladdin, which was probably our favorite thing the whole day. We went to a few gift shops, and we had about $50 worth of souvenirs in our hands. We got behind a couple in line and waited while she checked them out. We waited there about 10 minutes before the cashier told us that there wasn't a separate line for her register and we would have to wait in another line. She was very rude. She let us stand there the whole time while we checked the other people out. We were angry, and left the souvenirs and the park at 4 p.m, way before closing time. Between Disneyland and Adventure Park we were frustrated with the rides constantly breaking down, expensive but not tasty food, the slow and poor service while getting our food, and the rude cashier. I would not recommend Disneyland to anyone. We felt like both days were a waste of time and money, and we will never go back. It was nothing like I remembered from the last time I had been there. Every other place we went to in California (San Diego Zoo, Universal Studios, Seaworld) I would recommend, but not Disneyland or Adventure Park. Not only was it the most expensive place to get in to, and the most expensive food and parking, but also the most disappointing place we went during our whole vacation
