Disney’s California Adventure Park

Disney’s California Adventure Park: 


CAL has a lot of upcoming blocked out days this winter for using your guest passes. But, not as many as Disneyland! Always check before you go!


No upcoming blockout days are currently scheduled for using your self admission pass at California Adventure Park.



The weather at Disneyland is beautiful in the springtime! Our #1 recommended time to visit.

During blockout days, you can’t use your Disney Guest Passes to swipe friends and family into the park for free.  Also, Disney limits the number of rooms available for CMs to use their cast member hotel discount.

New CMs can expect to get their guest passes after working 150 hours (about 5 weeks into their program), after completing Traditions class on around Day 3.

Disneyland even has its own star on the Walk of Fame in Hollywood!  Go see it!


We always go left and start with Adventureland first!  It’s our favorite land.
