Pacific Wharf is a very small "land" at Disney California Adventure. For all of its shortcomings in size (and attractions...) it is well compensated in charm. The theming of California's fishing industry might be odd on paper, but it lends itself well to a general aesthetic where the chosen melange of restaurants can commingle.
Pacific Wharf is nestled snuggly between Paradise Pier, Carsland, and a busy pedestrian throughway. Because of this it is often overlooked as an area of the park, and prior to lunch, when the restaurants start opening, is often deserted. Take this opportunity to enjoy some of the best views in the park.
View towards Paradise Pier. One of my absolute faves.
