Cars Land Now Open - Disney California Adventure® Park
The wait is over, and the magical transformation of Disney California Adventure® Park is complete! Now, your whole family will get to enjoy the re-imagined and exciting new additions: Cars Land and Buena Vista Street. The moment you walk into Disney California Adventure® Park you will be transported to Buena Vista Street, and back to the 1920s, when Walt Disney first set foot in Los Angeles. Take a ride on the vintage Red Car Trolley, and be sure to stop by the Carthay Circle Theatre, which is the re-creation of where Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs premiered nearly 75 years ago.
Get ready to be floored...
Get ready to be floored, because Cars Land is big, really big! Guests will step right into the life-size, 12 acre version of the Disney•Pixar Cars movie, because Radiator Springs has been brought to life with this all-new land! In this new land, guests will meet Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater, race on the stunning rock formations and waterfalls of the Ornament Valley on the Radiator Springs Racers, fly in Luigi's Flying Tires, and hitch a ride in Mater's Junkyard Jamboree! Guests will also want to try out the amazing food locations in Cars Land, like Flo's V8 Café and the Cozy Cone Motel, which features menu items like Cone Dogs and Chili Cone Queso. At night, Cars Land will turn into a beautiful sea of neon—just like it does in the movie Cars! Whether it be day or night, the expansion and immersive storytelling is something for the whole family to enjoy!

Use Disney's FASTPASS® Service at select rides in the Disneyland® Park and Disney California Adventure® Park. Just slide your ticket in the machine and let FASTPASS® save your place in line! Many attractions offer free FASTPASS® service, a ticket from the attraction with a Return Time printed on it. At the time noted, go back to the FASTPASS® Return queue and show your ticket to the Cast Member at the entrance for a minimal wait.
Single Rider Line Select attractions feature single rider lines that may reduce your wait time if you are willing to split up your party and ride alone. Look for signs at the attraction queues or ask a Cast Member for help. Subject to availability.
Parent Swap - Are you traveling with a youngster that is not able to ride the attraction due to height restrictions? Well, we have a way for other Guests in your party to still ride the attraction and make sure the non-riding child stays safe. Advise the Cast Member at the entrance of the attraction or just before you get on the attraction that you have a child unable to ride. The Cast Member will either provide you with a Parent Swap coupon or ask you to wait nearby. Then one parent will wait with the non-riding child while the other rides. Once the rider returns to the loading platform the adults swap and the other adult now can ride the attraction without having to wait in line again. Check with the specific attraction Cast Member to find out more details.
Traveling with an infant? Parents are welcome to visit the Disneyland® Park Baby Care Center located at the end of Main Street USA just next to the Kodak® Photo Center.

Disney's PhotoPass Service - Imagine having your family's magical Disneyland® Resort vacation memories captured by a professional photographer and available for you to view and share online without ever having to wait in line.
