When we woke up this morning we were pretty tired from the amazing day of yesterday. But for today there was a whole planned for California Adventure, the 2nd park of the Disneyland Resort.
It was around 08:30h when we left the hotel and drove towards Disneyland Resort. There was not much traffic on the highway and from our hotel it’s only a 7-minute-drive to Disney. So we arrived at about 09:00h at the gate of California Adventure.
For the both of us this was going to be a new experience. First we walked to Cars Land to check out the waiting line for Radiator Springs Racer or get a Fastpass. Unfortunately there was a technical problem with the attraction so we had to wait. Next thing to do was getting a Fastpasses for World of Color, so we went to Grizzly Peak and got our passes for the 9 o’clock show.
We walked further over Paradise Pier and saw huge waiting times about everywhere, so we decided to come back later. But we could taking pictures with Duffy and after that we had breakfast at the Pacific Wharf Cafe.
After we finished our breakfast we walked towards Hollywood Land, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror to be exact. There was only a 25-minute wait and we had a lot of air-time (being lifted from your seat) during the ride. Then it was time to visit Mike and Sulley in Monsters Inc. Mike & Sulley to the Rescue. This ride takes you to Monstropolis in a taxi and it’s really a nice ride.
At 11:40h the Aladdin musical started a the Hyperon Theatre. This musical is really a high-quality musical and genie is just genius!!! He makes the show!!
We looked at the park-plan and went towards the Condor Flats area. This area only knows one attraction, Soarin’ over California. We know this attraction already from Walt Disney World, but it makes more sense here.
The next attraction was one where we were going to get wet. And we got wet, or more soaked. To dry up we went to Paradise Pier again to do some attractions. We started with Golden Zephyr and then walked to California Screamin’. A roller coaster from which I always thought it’s a woody, but it is not. Above all a expectations it was great and also a long ride.
Then it was time for the Radiator Springs Racers. The waiting time shrunk to 75 minutes and we decided to go in the line. It was a long wait, but totally worth it!!
After this we took some picture and for something to eat and then it was time to get ready for World is Colors. We had the Fastpass from this morning and at 8 o’clock the blue area opened and we found a really good spot to watch to show. After another hour waiting to show started and it was amazing. The combination of music, fountains and laser is phenomenal and really worth the wait.
As soon as the show ended we could hear and see the fireworks from Mickey’s Halloween party at he Magic Kingdom. That’s also going to be something special for Tuesday.
We closed of our day back in Radiator Springs at Flo’s V8 Cafe with a famous milkshake and then it was time to go home.
