Beat the Heat at Disney's California Adventure

Awhile back, C did a great post on "Staying Cool" at Disneyland. I thought I'd do a follow up, with some of my favorite tips for beating the heat, while exploring Disney's California Adventure. & Luckily, DCA is full of great places to escape to when it's blazing hot!

* Grizzly River Run (be prepared, you WILL get wet, but isn't that the point?)
* Head inside, & take a tour of the Boudin Bakery or the Mission Tortilla Factory. These are both great, "quick" escapes & you get FREE samples, which is a plus.
* Catch a flick: It's Tough to Be a Bug!, Muppet Vision 3D
* It may not be air conditioned, but lots of trees provide plenty of shade inside the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail
* Little ones LOVE the Princess Dot Puddle Park, (bring a change of clothes because they WILL get soaked, or, lots of kids show up in their bathing suit.) The S.S. rustworthy is fun too - a great place to play, with just enough water to keep you cool.
* Looking for a great escape from the heat? Check out the "Playhouse Disney - Live on Stage!" productions (lasts 20 minutes), or my absolute favorite way to beat the heat is "Disney's Aladdin - A Musical Spectacular". (4o minutes of air conditioned bliss, & the show's dang good too!)
* & Finally, if you want a cool treat, be sure to visit: Bur-r-r Bank Ice Cream (love that waffle cone smell), Catch a Flave for delicious soft-serve, Schmoozies for smoothies (duh!), & my personal favorite are the milkshakes found at Sam Andreas Shakes.

Don't forget to drink lots & lots of water!

Fun tips! I have never tried San Andreas shakes. Hmm must try next time I'm at the park.I'm taking the kids over today or tomorrow to play at princess dot puddle stop and at the irrigation station. It's so much fun! Oh I'm such a DCA fan!

I love DCA during the summer! Weird, but I drive from the beach (I live in Corona del Mar) to Anaheim to hang out at a fake pier! ;-)

Don't forget to cool off inside the Disney Animation Building! Lots of cool shows and activities to take part in there! Also a great place to take refuge when Disneyland/DCA is being flooded during a severe winter storm. Ah, good times!

If you're a foreigner and are gonna on a Tibet Travel or Tibet Tour, it's better to consult professionals on Tibet Travel Information or Tibet Travel Service. They may advise you to take part in the Tibet Travel Packages or Tibet Tour Packages because it's cheaper and the cheapest way of traveling is by Tibet Train. But travel abroad often needs to apply for a series of procedures such as visa, of course you need a Tibet Travel Permit. A Tibet Travel Operator or Tibet Travel Agency is the best way to choose for you.
