    Not too crowded, but some of the lines move very slowly. That said, I don’t think we waited longer than 30 minutes for any of the rides. It’s definitely going to get more crowded for the summer.

    In Downtown Disney in this unprecedented COvid19 phase, lines are long as people are desperately shopping for anything to bring home as a Disney souvenir. I love it and almost cried the first time I went, (being a massive Disney fan, I grew up in the park). The stars I gave Disneyland isn’t an insult, I would LOVE to be able to give it 5 stars, but unfortunately it is pretty crowded every day. 🙁

    Do not, I repeat DO NOT, go on a holiday. Disneyland will be packed, and the only way you will have a spectacular time is if you have annual passes so you can sit and relaax as you watch other visitors rush frantically and complain about the long lines while you rest assured you can come back again and get on a few rides. Another thing I do is come at 10 am. so I can stay until late at night where very few people are there, so I can get on almosst any rides I want. Last time I did this I mannaged to get on Peter Pan (Which as all Disney fans know is near impossible to ride with the 2-3 hour lines). It is really a great ride though.

    This place was not build to accommodate 21st centuries visitors, locals and visitors from land far away. It is pretty much useless now for ANY enjoyment. This and alike so called theme parks are making day spend in heat of the day in lines for a few minutes of rides absolute agony. Long gone those days for a family fun in Disneyland. Feel sorry for future generations and NOT recommend for visit under present circumstances which will not be changed in foreseen future. Limitless sales of tickets have only one meaning – profit with least investments and productivity as much as possible. Sad state of statement: PEOPLE WALL TO WALL.

    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.
