Paradise Pier was a Disney version of a 1920s seaside amusement park. Then Pixar Pier came along, turning it in to a synergistic land filled for Pixar characters. Except for Lightning McQueen and friends, they’re in Cars Land. Anyway, with a good chunk of Paradise Pier re-themed, Disney decided to ditch the name altogether for the part that was leftover. Paradise Gardens Park is what resulted.

Paradise Gardens Park has several attractions that the whole family can enjoy together. The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel's Undersea Adventure is nice retelling of the events of the film, and it rarely has much of a wait. Goofy’s Sky School is a calm and tiny roller coaster that is good for first timers.

On most nights the lake next to Paradise Gardens Park features Disney's World of Color Nighttime Spectacular, an evening show synchronized to music and Disney film clips, complete with more than a thousand water fountains shooting water hundreds of feet into the sky. We consider it a must-see.
