Im heading down to Disneyland with the family next week and have managed to convince them that we should do at least one day climbing. What is the best option within an hours drive. Ideally it would have a kids wall and some harder routes for me.

It's not pretty, but The Riverside Quarry is the closest area with some fun sport climbing. Schoolhouse Rock is a good place for the kids, and anywhere else has the harder routes for you. If you want trad, you'll have to drive a bit further to go to J-Tree or Thaquitz/Suicide rock which are probably both just under 2 hours from Disneyland.

Wouldn't be the first time it was climbed!

There's also Big Rock out at Lake Perris if you don't mind slab (and if repairs on the dam haven't shut down the climbing area yet).

I heard that to send the Matterhorn I'll need a double rack to #3 and a shotgun for that troublesome yeti

Stoney Point is about an hour up HWY_5 if you don't hit much traffic. Good 7's & 8's on the Mozart & Beethoven wall. Harder 10's & 11's right nearby on the Back wall.

Two spots not mentioned.
You could boulder in Corona del Mar. That mixed with the beach can make a nice day. You'll get sand in your shoes if you use them.
Mt. Rubidoux in Riverside is more scenic than the quarry and has boulder and short TR or gear climbs scattered around. If you are up for exploring...My favorites are black pinch on Orson's Wall, Peppertree Crack.
