Disney's Cars Land

Our first day in California we headed to California Adventure. We waited in the front of the park for the park to open, while my brothers waited in the Fast Pass line for the new Radiator Springs Racers Ride in Cars Land.

Our plan of attack was to head to Cars Land before it got too busy. Since it is a new part of the park we used our speed walking skills to the max. Overall the best thing about Cars Land is the amazing details. It looks just like Radiator Springs in the Cars movie. Disney did it again, everything is perfectly themed - from the amazingly painted rock features to the all things come in a cone food at the Cozy Cone Motel.

1. We went straight to the line for Luigi's Tires. It is a slower moving line since there are only a couple of people that can ride at a time. Yet, we went there first so it was only a 5 minute wait. It is sort of like bumper cars, yet you are floating on air. Not the most thrilling ride, yet a very cool concept.

2. We had a couple hours until our Racers fast pass, so we left Cars Land for a while to go around the rest of the park.

3. We came back right before our fast pass time to try the delicious food at the Cozy Cone Motel cones. 

The Chili Con Queso. Total man food. My one bite he would let me try was good.
The soft bread shell it was in was good and fresh. 
Red's Apple Freeze. The passion fruit foam was not my favorite,
but overall a yummy, refreshing drink!
4. Radiator Springs Racers lived up to all the hype! It was such a great mix of a ride. You get the story in really great graphics and detail (you feel like you are driving around with Lightning McQueen and everybody) AND you get a fast thrilling roller coaster-like feel too!  Even though we had a fast pass, we waited in line to go on it a second time. Well worth it!

Ride pictures are the best. You all know you love my hair in the front middle.
5. At night, we came back to Cars Land to see it lit up. It really was a cool, different feel. Definitely worth going back at night.

6. While there at night we went on Mater's Junkyard Jamboree. The line moved very quickly since there are two tracks they are feeding people onto. I thought this would be a total kids ride, but it was seriously so much fun! I was laughing the whole time while getting swung back and forth!

Cars Land was a hit including the rides, the food, and the atmosphere. It would be even more of a hit for a child who lovvvvess Cars the movie.
