Consumer Complaints and Reviews

Satisfaction Rating

Very clean park and friendly people. Expensive for 1 day, but season pass is a great deal. Something for everyone--nature, history, fun, great food, amusement rides.

Satisfaction Rating

Disney quality is always there. A little overpriced. Pretty self-guided. Nothing much added. Disneyland is wondering and nostalgic for me. However, I think it is pricing itself out of reach for many. The average family with children usually can't afford to stay on property.

Satisfaction Rating

Great places to stay that are all within a few minutes of the park. Awesome, very clean, very friendly staff. Great breakfast and nice pools.
