    Less crowded than Disneyland, so you can get all of the park done easily in one day.

    California Adventure is anything but a ghost town. 60+ minute wait times for everything. It looka like the middle of July. 🙁

    It actually is a ghost town today! Walked on smaller rides like monsters and Ariel. Only about a 10 minute wait for toy story. There are actual stretches of path that are completely empty.

    So DO NOT COME TODAY!!! Keep it a ghost town for me! ;p

    California Adventure is just about always less crowded than Disneyland. Just be sure to get a Fastpass for the Cars ride.

    Beware of a huge surge in crowds after Disneyland closes early for Mickey’s Halloween Party, especially on Friday nights. Everyone goes to DCA and it gets packed!
