So my girl is dying to go, as she has never been. Having the deprived childhood that I had, ive never been either. How is Disney for adults in terms of thrill rides? Were both into coaster and waterpark rides more so than "experience" attractions. How does Disney compare to a Cedar Point, in this arena?

If you're more into Six Flags type parks, you're gonna be disappointed. It's nothing but "experience" attractions with few rides like Space Mountain that are the token "thrill" rides.

I have season passes and have a great time every time I go. There's literally so much to do/see/find that the place never gets old. If you're a Disney/Pixar fan you have to go to Disneyland at least once in your life.

I recommend staying at the Paradise Pier hotel and get a high storied room. When California Adventure has their World of Colors show you can see it all from your room and won't have to deal with crowds/waiting (that and they have unlimited free wine/beers for an hour later in the day lol).

And no, it's not "creepy" to enjoy Disneyland if you don't have a kid lol. My three year old daughter has been there more than I can count on two hands and we both have a great time.

Edit: I forgot to mention to try and go on either a Tuesday or Wednesday due to lines being INSANE on weekends. Also, if you go on a certain day in November (I think it's the 5th?) you'll get Halloween themed Disney Land and the next day the entire park is Christmas themed (pretty cool for the little ones).

If you haven't gone, it's a good experience just to go and see how it is. **** is expensive though, $92 for one park and $187 for hopper. What I did was post a ad on Craigslist looking for park hopper tickets for cheap and scored an employee to got me tickets for $90.

This one time I went to Disneyland with my cousin and his children, wife. My cousin was a hardened individual. He didn't have the most loving upbringing and definitely never went to Disneyland as a kid. He was the type of guy who never admitted to liking anything even if it was obvious he liked it. So during our day there we all had a good time and afterward at a Denny's he actually raved about his experience at Disneyland. He said he had a better time than his kids (and they were riding a major high themselves). It almost brought tears to my eyes but the Grand Slam breakfast overrode the feeling.

You should definitely go if nothing else than to please your wife. Disneyland makes everyone who walks through its gates a child.

Going this weekend with my girl and son, smooth 78 degrees in Anaheim. Can't wait, Waay too hot in Sac.

But take your girl there, especially since you haven't gone. The "experience" is a great one.

I like Knotts and Six flags more. The rides are more fun. The rides at Disney seem to childish.

Land has a poverty castle.

And like dude said its just an experience. Dont expect thrill rides.

It's definitely a great experience but like someone said, if you're into thrill rides, go to Universal. If you wanna go b/c it's Disney World, u won't be disappointed. It's surreal as soon as u walk on Main St. in Magic Kingdom w/ the old classic vibe. Parades are nice, especially the electric parade at night. They have a new thing where they display images on Cinderella's castle before the fireworks, pure dopeness. Want to go again since we only went for a day to one park but my daughter wants to go on a cruise for her next bday so we're going to do the Disney Cruise.

All in all, I say, go.
