An amazing zoo with great exhibits. We went early and thankfully saw the pandas early in the day. If you're going later in the afternoon, be aware that the line gets really long. There can be a significant wait. We went around 10:30 and only waited 10 - 15 minutes. Also, the center of the zoo is in a valley so there are some significant hills to climb if you don't thoughtfully plan out your route. Make sure if you have kids, that you've considered the hills.
Very handicap accessable and nice inside the park transportation. Food was plentiful and not overly expensive.
Huge zoo, great collection of species. I was sad to miss out on the polar bears, but it seems that they work tirelessly to improve the zoo. Wear comfortable shoes for sure because you will want to see everything!
I'm not in favor of zoos because I love animals, and I think and feel they should be free int heir natural home. But the San Diego Zoo is one of the few zoos that I know who helps for preservation wildlife and take care of their animals. I love that you can take your own food and beverage and this way, you can save some bucks (always a good thing when traveling). Also, I think it's great that they have different prices for tickets depending on the experience you're looking. I took the cheapest and I didn't need to pay for anything else.
