Today we decided that we would get a fast past for the Cars Ride and we would use our Early Morning admission to get it. The cars ride has had 90 minute wait times every time we have looked at it and the fast passes have been sold out an hour after park opens. So we went early to see what the hype was. We got there at 9am thinking that California park opened at 8am for early admission but apparently it's only Disneyland so we waited for Cali to open their gates at 9am then were told it was 9.30am for gates then were told the park opens at 10am but we still waited. They have a bit of a parade type thing and they choose one family to "open the park" the family call out to everyone "let the adventures begin" it's kind of cute :) there was such a rush for the fastpass line for the cars ride!! Tif and I walked to go straight to the ride. They had a rope gate to stop everyone rushing. and we all had to follow along behind it. By the time we got close to the ride Den was already in front of us. We all walked behind the rope up towards the line and then they called out "form one line" and it was the worst crush I have ever been in. People pushing and shoving everywhere. I grabbed Brendon and held on. I could see Den in front of us but had no idea where Tif was. We kept "walking" (being shoved) along until we were in the long que for the ride. I looked back and couldn't see Tif anywhere. Brendon headed back to find her, while Den and I headed forward to collect Cam. It was Insanity for a ride!!! We all managed to get on and I could straight away see what the hype was about. The ride was WICKED! We had our fast passes as well so we got off our first ride and were able to get pretty much straight back on. It was an awesome ride but I'm not sure it was worth loosing my kids for LOL. We got lots of rides done that we didn't get to on the other days. Ended up being a beautiful day. The days have been getting warmer. We have been very lucky with the weather!!
