Disney California Adventure isn't as large as its sister park across the way and, with good planning, it's just possible to do most of it in one day. Still, if you have the time, we recommend two days at a more leisurely pace. We recognize that many families may only have one day for Disney California Adventure, however, so we're sharing our best, one-day touring plans (which assume entry at park openingarrive at least 30 minutes prior to scheduled opening time). Those lucky enough to have more time to spend at this park probably don't need a detailed touring plan. As with our other touring plans, you may want to skip items in blue if you're traveling with young kids or sedate adults.
