Grizzly Peak Recreation Area Disney California Adventure

Introduction | Attraction | Touring Tips| Dining | Shopping


The distinctive shape of Grizzly Peak towers over the Grizzly Peak Recreation Area, which showcases California’s wilderness areas and its rich outdoor sports life. Waterfalls course down the craggy peak, forests of evergreens like California redwoods flourish, and wildflowers bloom on the slopes. Take a wild whitewater raft ride on Grizzly River or challenge your athletic skills in the Redwood Creek play area.

In the Grizzly Peak Airfield you can fly high in the Soarin’ Around the World attraction.

Grizzly River Run is a Fastpass attraction. The standby line gets very long on warm days. Lockers are available at the entrance for anything you want to stay dry.

There’s a very large wood carving of “Grr”, the Grizzly River mascot, in front of the attraction, which makes for a nice photo op.

Soarin’ Around the World is also a Fastpass attraction. The Around the World film is new, so this attraction is very popular and all Fastpasses are usually distributed long before the end of the day.

The entrance/exit to Disney’s Grand Californian hotel is located close to Grizzy River Run.
