    Went to California adventure on a random Wednesday February 25,2020 and managed to only get on 5 rides. Arrived around 10am left around 1pm to grab lunch and rest at hotel by the time we came back it was ridiculously even more crowded and managed to only get on 2 rides making it 5 rides total for the day. Ridiculous. Used my fast pass (disability access) for guardian and then when it was time for our family to use they were no longer excepting fast pass and had 80 min waits. Also, not very disability access friendly either. We are a family of 3. Our son has severe autism and is non verbal. Waiting in the long line at the chamber of commerce I overheard 3 grown women in front of me who was totally fine saying there friends told them to get a disability pass and just say their hip is bad etc since Disney isn’t allowed to discriminate and say no so they wouldn’t have to pay for max pass. PATHETIC !!! If my husband wasn’t there to give me that look and just leave it I would’ve said something. But Disney really needs to do better on having people show some type of proof of their disability. Because it’s gettin getting out of control with the abusing the system.

    Ghost town was completely wrong. This place is over filling with people. Every good ride is over an hour wait.
