Since the grand reopening of Disney California Adventure park, guests have discovered so many ways to enjoy all eight lands. To help you find the magic, we’ve shared a few specialized itineraries – for the thrill seeker, the fan of after-dark fun, show lovers and those seeking child’s play.
Horticulture at Disney California Adventure Park

This is the fifth in our series about fun ways to explore Disney California Adventure park. Today’s list of “must-sees” is for guests who appreciate the beauty of nature and the careful planning that goes into the horticulture that spreads across the park.

This itinerary invites nature lovers to “branch out” and observe the tall pines around Grizzly Peak, the small cacti in Radiator Springs and many of the 450 new trees planted in Cars Land. The addition of trees throughout the park adds shade for more guest comfort, too.

Have fun finding these species at Disney California Adventure park:

  • Golden State Winery Cork Oak at the Golden Vine Winery (Pacific Wharf)
  • Grizzly Peak Pine Trees
  • Ficus Auriculate – Roxburgh Fig (“a bug’s land”)
  • Cars Land “Ironwood” Tree – Olneya Tesota
  • Cars Land Claret Cup Cactus

Which are your favorite trees, plants or flowers?

  • The use of mondo grass throughout the resort is impressive, given how particular that grass can be. And I personally like the massive date palms that front the Hollywood Tower Hotel. Disney does such an incredible job using botany to help tell the many stories of the resort, green thumbs can’t get enough!
