Cars Land Question

Our family is coming to Anaheim to see our college team play in the Sweet Sixteen, but of course we have to spend a day at Disneyland! Will we have trouble getting a FP for Radiator Springs Racers if we wait till afternoon? (Does RSR even have a FP?) Thanks for your help!

On my first trip to Disneyland when I was just seven years old, I got lost when I ran ahead of my family trying to see Mickey as he led the parade. My parents soon retrieved me from the Lost and Found, but I've never found a place that I would rather be lost than Disney.

RSR definitely has FP, but if you wait until afternoon to get a FP, they will likely have run out by then. Based on what I've read on the DL boards here, it's been typical for FP to run out after 2-ish hours after park opening (official park opening, not EMH opening).

As the PP said, if you wait until afternoon, FP will mostly have run out by that point. In my experience FPs run out about 90-120 minutes after the park opens to the public. They generally last longer when the park has longer hours, but I've seen seen FPs still be distributed in the afternoon.

You're best bet is to do the Single Rider line if you're willing to be split up (you will be split up). Otherwise, the stand by line is your only option but afternoon lines can exceed 2 hours. The Single Rider line tends to be about 1/3 to 1/2 of the wait time of the standby line.

Thanks for the great information! Sounds like maybe we should head to CA first thing. And the single rider line is a great option for us! We will definitely give that a try as well as using our FP.

So I guess our plan should be - CA first, but as soon as we've ridden the "can't miss" rides, head over to DL and start getting fast passes there.

Thanks for the help!
