  • [Question] Any Tips for Hitting Carsland?

    I went to Disneyland two years ago, so I'm due for another visit. I waited a year to let Carsland settle and let Disney work out the bugs. I guess they made their way over to Pirates

    Anyway, any tips on how to best approach this land?

    Thanks!

    i'm gonna shout this one out... SINGLE RIDER LINE! Radiator Springs Racers. Single rider line. Split up if necessary. You don't want to waste a long, extended amount of time waiting to get on this ride. Of course you get there at the time the park opens and get a fastpass for the ride first OR if you're staying on Disney property then you get extra magic hour morning where you can experience Carsland with little to zero crowds.

      I'm staying off property, but my tickets let me get in one day early. So should I just utilize that one day to get to Carsland early? And does it makes sense to did that ride first thing in the morning?

        Make Cars Land your first stop. Get there as early as you can, utilize single rider, and get it done. Don't wait because it gets very, very crowded. I can't count how many times I have looked on MouseWait at 2pm and seen the RSR wait time at 1-2 hours long.
        Merrily on our way to nowhere at all.

          The early morning hour you're talking about is only good for Disneyland, and only on Tues/Thurst/Sat. You don't get early admission to DCA; only people staying at one of the resort hotels get that.

            Figures.

            How about food in Carsland? Any of the new places any good?

              I've had dinner at Flo's and enjoyed it. I got the turkey plate with mashed potatoes and beans, with the coca cola BBQ sauce on top of the turkey, tasty times! Cozy Cone also has some fun options. The chili cone queso is pretty good, they also have fun flavored popcorn options as well as unique flavored drinks.

                Nice. One of things I have struggled with Disneyland is finding good food. I'm not much of a hot dog or hamburger guy. But I like my carbs early in the morning, and I like meat that is not mystery meat for dinner. Fish and shellfish is also good. I know, it's tough to eat well on vacation, but I try to eat better when I go to Disney than when I backpack and eat at least one snicker bar a day

                  If you can get there at opening, head towards the Radiator Springs Racers fastpass first (especially since the ride breaks down a bit). They go within the first couple hours of park opening. If not, then do single rider.

                      DCA has soooo many options for food that is good that it's not even funny. so there is no problem with food at DCA, Cozy Cone's are awesome, try the chili con- queso thing.. omg!

                        Run, or power walk, to the single rider line as soon as they escort the crazed mob into the park in the morning. Only about a 15-20 min wait if you do that.

                          Since you havn't been to DL or DCA in a while...

                          here is a looooong list of menus.. as you were asking about what is good to eat and not..this will help you

                          i was going to every single link for you, but that takes so long and i don't feel people really appreciate that.. so here is the actual link to the menus on allears.net for DLR

                          Disneyland Resort Menus

                          enjoy!
