The weekend is here and it is time to make some more family memories. No need to stay cooped-up indoors watching another movie on cable. Get out and enjoy some of the many amazing family destinations right in your own backyard. It may be one of the biggest tourist spots in the state, but a family visit to Disney’s California Adventure Park is the perfect solution to family-time bonding.
Deciding what to do first at Disney’s California Adventure Park is half the fun. You can get a look into the past at Buena Vista Street, where Disney has meticulously created the 1923 version of Los Angeles from Walt Disney’s point of view. The most popular land is probably Hollywood Land, where you can get whisked away to the world of movie magic. There are a lot of great rides here to enjoy as well, from The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror to Monsters, Inc. and more. Or take a seat and watch “Disney’s Aladdin, a Musical Spectacular.” If something more outdoorsy is your speed, head over to Grizzly Peak for a thrilling ride on the Grizzly River Run, or explore all the different paths, trails and rope bridges in the area.
When it’s time to eat, venture over to the Pacific Wharf for waterfront dining and tons of variety. The adults can enjoy lots of great California wines at Wine Country Trattoria while the kids get loaded on sugar at the Ghiradelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop. Or visit Cocina Cucamonga Mexican Grill or the Lucky Fortune Cookery for other great culinary delights.
With all this family fun, there is only one car to get you and the kids to Disney’s California Adventure Park. The G550 SUV from Mercedes-Benz of Encino is just the right way to transport you, your kids, and all the souvenirs you are sure to buy. Plus, it’s a Mercedes-Benz, so you’ll arrive in style and ride in luxury as you prepare to make a lifetime of new memories.
