Cars Land at Disney’s California Adventures
I was lucky (or unlucky) enough in 2012 to end up at the new Cars Land at Disney’s California Adventures about a week after it opened. Lines were long, especially for the Radiator Springs Ride at 60 minutes, a mere twenty minutes after the park opened. Within an hour the wait had soared to 120 minutes and hovered there for most of the day with an occasional drop to 90 minutes. We ended up going in early the next day, and got into the 60 minute line.
Fast forward two years, and 60 minute waits are still quite typical of this ride. But I’d say it’s well worth it still.
The attention to detail and staying true to the Cars movie franchise is downright amazing. I had just as much fun taking pictures of the signs and scenery as I did actually riding the ride. We went again in April 2014. It was just as busy.

These pictures were taken the day after Radiator Springs Racers opened in Cars Land at Disney California Adventure Park. The lines here were absolutely crazy, three hours to get on the ride itself. There were lots of people waiting in line to see the characters, so many that they were getting turned away. And the parade was absolutely crazy.
The parade was pretty cool though, and a great twist on the one across the way at Magic Kingdom.

Disney Magic Kingdom, Orlando Florida Pictures
March, 2012 – In Orlando Florida again. Hit Disney World/Magic Kingdom up. Again. Not quite as artistic this time.

And the People Mover. Quite possibly still my favorite ride at Disney. Still rather upset that it’s shut down totally in Anaheim.
