It is interesting to me that the Mission Tortilla Factory has a higher rating than the Boudin Bakery Tour, as this one is far less detailed and entertaining than that one. The tortilla factory begins with a pre-show room where children sing the praises of corn (!), then empties into a small room where projected images show old-fashioned tortilla making. Guests wander into the main factory room next, where modern high-tech machines show how tortillas are made today. One machine is for corn tortillas, while another is for flour tortillas (and I have found that both rarely operate together). There are small signs that explain the various parts of the machine, but no real explanation other than that (the employees do encourage questions though). The highlight is of course the free tortilla at the end. I am not normally a huge tortilla fan, but these warm fresh ones sure are good. There is a demonstration table at the end of the factory with suggestions on how to prepare assorted culinary creations with tortillas, but I have never seen anyone getting to make anything with their own tortilla sample. All in all, this is reasonably interesting, but head across the street afterwards to the bakery tour for a similar attraction that is better executed for a theme park. I have no idea what will become of either of these attractions during the renovation of California Adventure. They seem like very minor attractions that could easily be replaced, especially since they do not really seem to fit the direction the new park will be heading. But I have not heard any indication of this. We will have to wait and see I guess.

This is an exhibit, not an attraction. However, as an exhibit its mildly interesting, has shiny moving things, and includes delicious samples. Thats a win in my book.

How could I not like it? It involves food!! FREE food, at that. Otherwise, this walk-through sort of attraction is only mildly educational and entertaining.

interesting to look at and ponder over, and the samples are good, but more of a display then a full blown attraction.

The best part about this tour is the free tortilla at the end, but there is an easier way to get more tortillas, if you will go to great lengths to do it. Just make sure you go to guest relations and tell them its your birthday.

I found this surprisingly fun! You walk into a small room where cute school children tell you about tortillia making in a surprisingly funny presentation. After that another video is shown at how Mexicans still make tortillas. Finally you walk into a tortilla factory. You then get a delicious fresh tortilla. Normally tortillas are old but these ones are so delicious. Bring your tortilla up to the demonstration counter. They made my tortilla into a tortilla cake with cookies and chocolate sauce all over it - Best part is I got to eat it! I was fascinated at how many ways they use tortillas. Another girl made what looked like a delicious taco.

Sometimes they make you wait for this attraction which it is not worth. But if the doors are opened when you pass it...go right in. You get an approximately 2 minute history lesson in one room about tortillas and then go into another room where they demonstrate how they make tortillas and give you free samples and recipes for tortillas. It may not be the most entertaining but it is a way to get food if you are broke!
