This week we are highlighting tips for visiting any of our desert parks like Anza-Borrego Desert State Park or Providence Mountains State Recreation Area this spring or summer.

Most Important: Make sure to stay hydrated! Temperatures can range from mid 80s to 110s during the day to nearly freezing temperatures during nights. Simple actions such as taking plenty of water (1 gallon/per person/day) and food, and knowing that cell coverage is extremely limited or non-existent can help you be better prepared to safely enjoy the desert.

Today's Tips:

1. Make sure to have plenty of water and food for duration of your trip to avoid dehydration, heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
2. Check Weather. Weather can change instantly.
3. Dress appropriately with layers of clothing and appropriate shoes such as hiking boots and close-toed shoes.
4. Mark tents and ropes so they are visible at night.
5. Keep it clean: pack it in & pack it out. ...

We could start by reducing the use of single-use plastic bottles. Thousands of these are passed out to park volunteers. Some parks have no recycling programs.

It seems that our governor and his Lt governor are boasting of a 60 billion dollar budget surplus and yet they raised our gas taxes and vehicle registration fees higher than any in the nation.

Now it appears they are either lying about the budget surplus or they are incompetent at running state branches and have bureaucrats with political agendas.

Whatever stooge is in charge of Green-valley and Cuyamaca should be fired and frankly the parks should be open free of charge with that much surplus in hand.

Yes it’s time to start pulling voter levers that stop stealing your rights and your public lands from us the public.

We went 2 years ago when there were only rumours of star wars land, now the parks being refurbished. I miss it so much I cant just jump in the car and make a visit. Being all the way over here on the Gold Coast of Australia.

I went this weekend and I had a great time!!! Everything was great !!! Took my son for his birthday, he had an amazing time!! I just think there needs to be seat belts on the mickey's wheel , I was super scared I felt I was going to fall out. For kids it's way to much!

Ah, Mickey's Giant Wheel of Death! To swing or not to swing, that is the question. The answer is don't swing if you know what's good for you. :D

We had a wonderful time there with our children and grandchildren a few months ago🤗... Would love to go back there again soon!

I'm unable to access your disability access information the page will not load I will be going in a couple weeks and wanted to know what accommodations you have for people with movement issues. Not wheel chairs. I was trying to see if you guys have the same system set up as they do at Disney land where you can check in at the information booth for your next ride and wait the wait time outside of the line. Any help with this information would be appreciated ty

One of the best views in any theme park. This view just screams "this place rocks!" DCA may have started small but it's pretty cool now.

Inolvidable!!! En especial la primera vez del World of color,que mejor escenario para cerrar un dia en california adventure que el estar ahi de noche,la magia de disney transmitiendo emociones y sentimientos que solo muy pocos pueden percibir asi,en su maximo nivel,que recuerdos,gracias walt disney por tu atencion al detalle y regalarnos hermosos momentos de vida.

We can't wait to go in December for our granddaughter 3th birthday . And maybe before that too. Just me and my honey.🙆🏻😄👍

I haven't been in a long while! But get control of your crowds! Don't let so many people in the park seems to reach capacity everyday! Fix that then I'll be more than happy to return

Was there 1 years ago with hubby and kids loved it so much it's the only place we went to because of cars land and having 2 boys

The most Wonderful view of all the disneyland in the world! Seeing it, you know you're in CA Disney right away!
Must go to visit it next year! Wait for me!!!!!

What a great shot. Brings back tons of memories. Although when I first saw this it was at night and pouring rain. But still very spectacular.

Decided to try Disneyland last year for the 1st time after going to Disney World 5 times & loved California Adventure. Planning on going back next year.

It was great beeing there!

Disney California Adventure Park did you guys officially close down Tower of Terror yesterday?? Because a lot of us are mad at that when you should just not get rid of it. This next ride better be 5x better.! Please reply.

Deberíamos irnos a California para regalarle a nuestra niña interior un derroche en Disney además de disfrutar de un presente como este a la Marisole y la Mire Marisol López está padre no amiga??

Weregoing for our first time for our daughter's third birthday in a week so excited we will be there

We visited last week and my daughter left one of her favorite hats somewhere in the park. I reported it to lost and found on our way out and wasn't really expecting to ever see it again. Guess what came in the mail today? Thank you Disney staff!!

Steven and Gilda - only 4 more months away!!! 🎡🎢🎠🎆

Unjusto que por falta de seguridad pase este tipo de impridensias y justo dias despues de que cerraran el parque pir otra imprudensia dejando a muchos con sus vacaciones arruinadas y a otros con sus gastos inutiles, que mal plan.

For the first time ever going to Disney California adventure, I absolutely loved it. We had a blast. Definitely going back soon

Simon Grace We're Going There In Our 8th Year Anniversary! I'm spoiled Or Should i say Our 2yrs Old Daughter Is so Spoiled to her Daddy!! 😌😅

California is the best country in the I have not been there though but from the look of things is a really nice place......but i pray i will be there someday and i love Disney land

We were just there this past Friday. I was quite disappointed though, six times we were in line just about to get on the ride and six times they closed!!! There were 14 of us. So a pretty penny was spent to have this happen so much!!!

I went twice, both times during the winter. It was good to get away from the cold air and snow. Good vacation spot. I recommend it to anyone with kids.

Seems like yesterday when I took this picture, do you remember what it use to look like before?

This year not much of light and I did not see the electric pared and the rides you have to wait 1hour or two hours the small world my favorite this yr to many people you have to wait more than two hours,not like last yrs the best the lights was so very nice but then still I love Disneyland every yr I'm always goin to Disneyland

It's very disappointing to wait more than 3 hours to get on your first ride because they decide to prioritize the fast line and VIP's, so you end up watching how they do not honor or respect everyone else's time. It's a bad system!

Just gonna close my eyes and wish I was there right now.

8:35pm Nov. 14th, Tue. 2017 = I was here yesterday!!! The start-in, has all CHRISTMAS LIGHT's on it!!! I get to go back in 2 week's!!! We have a Disneyland Pass!!!

The paperboys right on Buena Vista Street check out them selling you some papers and the music is wonderful too

I was there today for my birthday had a blast!

Marita,me encantan las fotos,verlas me hace sentirlas cerca,les deseo un feliz año,buena salud dinero y amor.Las queremos mucho y extrañamos.besos.

That was so much fun! Carsland is THE best😍

Is there going to be a Disneyland in Australia?! This needs to happen, ASAP!

It was fun .... just wasn't happy they took my selfie stick and I got in the gate and seen ALOT of selfie sticks !!! That up set me a lot !!

See you sat for daughter 21st bday for her first drink. 😍

I wonder how packed it will be for the opening of Frozen at the Hyperion Theater tomorrow 🤔🤔

Claro que me recuerdo de esto.......verdad Mariam Arreaga

I remember when it used to be a big parking lot!

iloveit <3

I had the privilege to attend the cast preview in 2001 before the gates opened to the general public. I remember thinking at the time that this would be a good park once it matured. Who knew just how good it would become???!!!

Can't wait to be there in 19 days 😄😄😄😄

what a nice view of Disney land

I still have my DCA opening cast member memorabilia <3

I wish I could take my family of 4, just too expensive to stay at a Disney Hotel for 3 days.

My husband was on team that opened it- managed coaster, bugs life, paradise pier. Find memories for him. We love the park. We also like the new additions too!

I always go on the stationary gondolas and last time we went, I got the nerve to go on the swinging gondolas. It was so scary!

I love working for disney California adventure at the Pacific Wharf Cafe

Ya quiero que llegue la fecha! Tengo emoción! TE AMO!!! ❤️ Gemita Godinez

Olha como é Disney na Califa, Andrea Branco Gunzburger

I remember covering the soft opening for the media when it first opened. I was two-months pregnant and rode Soaring Over California. I like to tell my now 12-year-old that he first rode that ride when he was in my tummy. Happy birthday Disney California Adventure!
