Construction Going On @ Disney’s California Adventure

We had a very casual trip to Disney’s California Adventure on Wednesday this week. We were in Orange for Angry Toddler’s speech therapy evaluation, so we decided to head over to Anaheim for some lunch and fun, of course.

We got to Disney at around noon. It was already crowded. We were funneled through to the Simba parking lot. This is Angry Husband’s least favorite place to park at Disney. They have no tram service in the Simba lot and you have to walk, ALOT.

Angry Toddler wanted to go to California Adventure, which was fine with us. Disneyland looked very crowded. We wanted to go on Soaring, but the line was an hour long. Apparently the Fast Pass machines were not working.

We headed to the back of the park to go on the Jumping Jellyfish. I made Angry Husband go on the ride. While I was there, I was able to get some photos of the construction going on in the lagoon area. They have drained the lagoon and are prepping for their newest adventure, “Disney’s World of Color”. I was able to get some great photos while they were on the ride.





Angry Toddler was hungry after that, so we headed over to Taste Pilot’s for some food. After eating at Taste Pilot’s, we decided it was naptime. We spent almost two hours at DCA. It made for a nice sunny afternoon, since it’s been soo rainy lately.

The girls and I were at DCA on Tuesday with my parents, and then we went to DL on Wednesday.Wednesday was a lot busier than Tuesday due to the nicer weather. But, we only stood in line for 45 minutes for Nemo and 30 for Autopia. Those were the longest lines we stood in all day. We hit everything just right. I can't wait to take my girls back in a few weeks. Oh, and when the lake is done it will be awesome. It's being done by the people who did the Bellagio.
