This district is Disney's response to complaints that Disney California Adventure lacked appeal for younger children. "a bug's land" incorporates the vestiges of the defunct Bountiful Valley Farm (which celebrated California's agribusiness) into a bug's-eye world of giant objects, children's rides, and the It's Tough to Be a Bug! attraction.
Most of "a bug's land" consists of Flik's Fun Fair, a childrenâ€™s park as seen through the eyes of an insect. Children can wander among 20-foot-tall blades of grass, tunnel-size garden hoses, an enormous anthill, and the like. Princess Dot Puddle Park is a kid's water-maze play area fashioned from giant size garden sprinklers (weâ€™re not making this up). Kiddie rides include Flik's Flyers, with a balloon-ride theme; a drive-it-yourself car ride called Tuck and Roll's Drive 'Em Buggies; Heimlichâ€™s Chew Chew Train, a miniature-train ride; and a miniâ€“Mad Tea Party ride titled Francis' Ladybug Boogie, where you can spin your own "ladybug."
Though theyâ€™re colorful and magnetically alluring to the under-8 crowd, all of the rides are low capacity, slow loading, and ridiculously brief. Our advice is to ride them before 11 a.m. if you visit on a weekend or during the summer. The play areas can be enjoyed anytime, but then you're faced with the prospect of the kids caterwauling to get on the rides.
