Disneyland With Kids Podcast

Apr 22, 2020

If you are planning a Disneyland vacation, you may be wondering, what movies should you watch before you head to California Adventure. Disney theme parks focus heavily on their box office hits, and while we know that Disneyland movies are highly focused on the animated classics, you may wonder what to expect over at California Adventure. We have you covered with everything you need to watch before heading to "the other park" at Disneyland. 

In This Episode

Movies to Watch Before Visiting California Adventure at Disneyland

In this episode, Jessica, from The Happiest Blog On Earth, and Julie, from Mom Rewritten, are covering what movies you may want to watch before visiting Disney California Adventure Park. From movies you will see in the rides and lands, to shows and beyond, we have the ultimate list of movies to take in before Disneyland with Kids.

While the Disneyland side focuses heavily on the classic Disney animations and Lucas Films, California Adventure incorporates everything from classic Disney, going back as far as some of the classic Mickey cartoons, to Disney Pixar, and even Marvel.
