Nestled within the Disney Resort, right next to Disneyland, is Disney’s California Adventure! I went here, not expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised. It’s California themed, so there are rides and shows relating to everything from Hollywood to the Golden Gate Bridge to the Paradise Pier (modeled after beach boardwalks such as Santa Monica and Santa Cruz). As the sun set, the rollercoasters and ferris wheel cast wonderful reflections into the water along the beach boardwalk. I felt like a kid again as I rode the Toy Story Midway Mania (my favorite ride there!). Fun times!
