Day two was a magic morning... so we hustled to be at the park AT 7:30 to bust straight into California Adventure. It was a great idea... until we learned that only Disneyland opens early. Fine- we'll do some Indiana Jones first thing, then head over to California Adventure. Wrong. Only Fantasy-land opens early in Disneyland... so we cut our losses and headed across the street to wait in line for the opening of California Adventure.
We waited in line at the gate, then we waited in line inside the park, then we followed a "rope" line to get to cars land. We were the first people in line at California Adventure, and this is where we ended up in line to cars land.
Good thing though... look how many people were behind us!
The Cars ride was AMAZING. The whole land was replicated perfectly, and the ride was kind of a small scale "being in" the movie. It did have a part where you race a car next to you and go SUPER fast (like 50 mph fast). It was really fun. Total line time for us was about 20 minutes. When we got off the ride total wait time was 2 hours! CRAZY!
Luigi's tire shop was an inflated bumper car ride, where you used your body weight to "steer" your tire. Pretty mild and cute.
They took you into an "ant cave" for the movie. (I'm always amazed at how well Disney themes their attractions. Not one thing was out of character!)
Complete with a little splash pad to keep the wee one's cool.
