    Which park is more fun for teens? Disneyland or California Adventure?

    Welcome to planDisney, Jaime!

    I’m so glad you found us here while you get your Donald Ducks in a row for your next visit to The Happiest Place On Earth! Oh boy! You all are in for a treat! As someone who grew up just around the riverbend from the Disneyland Resort, your question brings up so many wonderful memories. I have spent a lot of time in both theme parks, so you came to the right Mouseketeer for advice on what to do, where to go, what to eat, and who to see!

    Jaime, choosing the right theme park for a one-day adventure really comes down to what you and your crew are most excited about. Both parks are packed with fun and have enough magic to fill a whole day. Personally, I’m…mature enough to remember being a teenager before the Disney California Adventure Park existed. My friends and I always had the best time, zooming around Space Mountain, sliding on Matterhorn Bobsleds, and facing near destruction on Star Tours - The Adventures Continue. Now that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is available, I’m sure my teenage self would have loved blasting off-planet with my friends for hours and hours!

    But Jaime, let me tell you, any superhero fan will absolutely fall in love with the Disney California Adventure Park. Avengers Campus is a dream come true for MARVEL lovers. And Cars Land feels like stepping right into Radiator Springs from the movies. And don't forget the incredible rides that are available to thrill-seekers

    Both parks offer so many fantastic options, so you and your team of teens are in for a treat no matter where you go. I hope I've sprinkled some helpful pixie dust on your plans for your visit, Jaime! Just as Ursula from "The Little Mermaid" says, "That's what I do! It's what I live for!" So if you have any more questions before your visit, just swim on back to ask me again

    See ya real soon!
