California Adventures

Day two at the Disney parks was much more successful.

We arrived around 8:40 to the park and the lines for security were insanely long.

When we made it through security my uncle and I ran to get the strollers. We didn’t want to waste time today.

In the California’s Adventures park there are three rides in which the wait time can get extremely long; Car’s Radiator Spring, Toy Store Mania, and the California Screaming. If you go early enough you won’t need the get fast passes for the California Screaming because the line shouldn’t be too long.

When we made it through the park gates I ran to get tickets for Radiator Springs and for the night spectacular, World of Color, then met the rest of the family at the Coffee Shop. We then made our way to California Screaming where we only had to wait in line for 20 minutes, which is a really short wait for this ride.

California Screaming is the first ride on the Pier…


Waiting in line at Toy Store Mania.

…other rides on the pier include Mickey’s Fun Wheel, Toy Story Mania, Silly symphony swings, Goofy’s Sky school. We rode all of them!

We had a pretty late lunch on our second day. We didn’t eat until 4, so before lunch we went to my cousins choir performance, and we used our fast passes for Radiator Springs.

Radiator Spring is one of the my favorite rides at the CA park! Its  fun and exciting for kids of any age! Both the four and seven year old love this ride because its both fast and you get to see all the character of the movie!


In Cars Land we also got to ride Maters Junkyard Jamboree and the new ride Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadster.

For lunch we had a big surprise for the girls. My aunt made reservations to eat at  Ariels Grotto!

At Ariels Grotto you get to eat and meet 5 princesses! The girls were so excited especially the four year old! The 7 year old thought we were lying, she kept telling us it wasn’t possible to eat lunch with the princess…we proved her wrong.

During lunch we met Ariel, Cinderella, Belle, Tiana, and Rapunzel. They all came up during lunch and the girls got to get their signatures and take pictures with each one of them!

She’s so excited to see all the Princesses!

A long with these princess we also went to go say hello to Anna and Elsa!

This is my four year old cousins absolute favorite movie and characters!

Just look at her big smile!


Later at night before the World of Color show my little cousin, my aunt, and I rode the Tower of Terror. It was her first time riding it and although she loves roller coasters she did not like this ride, but I think it was more the talk and the video that scared her.

 We’re sitting on the second row to the right. I’m giving a thumbs up while my aunt and cousin are scared of out their minds.


The last thing we did at the park was watch the spectacular water show, World of Color.

I don’t have pictures of it because I didn’t want to risk getting my phone wet, but I did take my GoPro on this trip and I promise to upload the videos once I’ve got them all ready.

If you’ve never seen this show, I absolutely recommend you watch it! It’s an amazing show and Disney did a great job on all of it!

Well that was all of our day at California’s Adventure park!
