Every Wednesday we test your DLR knowledge with a photograph taken somewhere in the Disneyland Resort. Here it is:
We had some good guesses, but only three correct ones.
A lot of people breeze right past this waterfall. Some people, uninterested in the attraction, walk on by without even looking. In fact you have to kind of go into this attraction to find this spot.
Though this attraction is one of what I call the “Big 3” rides at Disney California Adventure (referring to what I believe were the only 3 good rides in DCA before the big refurb), I have personally only been on Grizzly River Run twice.
I often wear jeans to the park, and jeans take forever to dry. More often than not, one can get pretty wet on this ride, so I tend to avoid it most times. I do think it’s a fun ride though.
Even if I don’t ride, this is still a great attraction for me. I love nature, rivers, and waterfalls. My favorite place in California (besides the Disneyland Resort) is Yosemite National Park. The Grizzly Peak Recreation Area does a good enough job of recreating the majestic Sierra Nevada and the northern coastal Redwood forest, that this is my favorite part of DCA.
The only thing missing is a nice restaurant, and I mean within the Grizzly Peak area. The ones inside the Grand Californian Hotel are very good, but they are kind of far off the beaten path. Something like the Hungry Bear restaurant, around Grizzly River, would be nice.
Many places surrounding Grizzly River Run are great places to stop for a moment and cool down in the mist coming off of the falls, especially on those really hot days.
Here is the list of this week’s winners:
Alison Hodgson (keep it up and I’m going to get you a trophy or something!) 😉
And to those who gave it a shot, thank you so much for participating!
We’ll have a new one for you next week, so when you’re in the Disneyland Resort (Disneyland, Disney California Adventure, Downtown Disney and all of the Disney hotels), keep your eyes peeled and take in everything.

Thanks, this is just fun. You tend to post the question in the 15 minutes between my college classes so it gives me a little brake. Thanks, and I think you guys are great.

besides, my family and I have lived in Southern California for over 20 years and we all love Disneyland. We go there all the time, I will never out grow Disneyland. I would love to make it to the other parks someday though.
