Cars Land is going to be a blast regardless!

Cars Land borrows some Disneyland musicians.

I can't find the link now, but a month or two ago I read that LFT will have a capacity of about 500 per hour and MJJ will handle about 800. Sort of like Tea Cups and Dumbo.

Thanks for sharing that info, Hydroguy. I am really wondering what the wait times will be like when we go third week in July. I remember when Nemo first opened we just skipped the ride that visit because the lines were so long and slow moving. Well, guess we'll find out!

The closest analogy might be to say RSR is the last 30 seconds of TT redone as a slot car track crossed with Big Thunder Mountain RR.
uh ok, it just looks like it is based off of TT is all im saying but however, I will be there a few days after opening so we shall see what we shall see

Sorry, I just have to say, this is a BAD idea. They have height requirements on rides for a reason. Granted they do normally err on the side of caution when determining them, but don't you want that when it concerns the safety of your child? Even if it were just an inch or two and not 7 inches, it would still not be a good idea. Very recently a 3 year old girl was thrown from a ride for which she was deemed tall enough, she slipped under the lap bar and was thrown from 8 feet in the air. Thankfully she wasn't seriously injured, but I'm not willing to risk even a mild concussion for my kid just to get them on a theme park ride.

This may have been a joke, but just for people who might think this is a possibility to get their kid on that ride that he really wants to enjoy, it's not worth the risk. Make another trip when your kid is taller.

I found the link. It was from editorialist and chief rumor-starter Al Lutz who does not work for Disney and everything he says is really rumor - albeit well informed rumor - usually.

http://miceage.micechat.com/allutz/al122011a.htm

Quote:
Radiator Springs Racers has a modestly respectable hourly capacity of 1750 riders per hour, which would be considered a monster people-eater at a regular amusement park, but pales in comparison to other Disney E Tickets like Pirates of the Caribbean gobbling up 2,900 riders per hour or Itís A Small World carrying 2,500 riders per hour in that fleet of more buoyant 21st century boats. The 1750 figure for Radiator Springs Racers puts it ahead of Splash Mountain or Star Tours at around 1450 per hour, and compares most closely with the 1800 per hour that Indiana Jones can pull in.

Still, the demand from 75,000+ daily Anaheim visitors will far outstrip the 23,000 riders per day that Radiator Springs Racers could theoretically handle once DCA expands its hours of operation to an 8AM to 11PM daily park schedule next summer. Fastpass will be offered for Radiator Springs Racers, the first new Fastpass attraction at DCA since Tower of Terror opened in 2004, and TDA planners are already thinking of ways to ensure that DVC owners and guests staying in the nearly 3,000 Disney hotel rooms in Anaheim get first crack at those Fastpasses each morning.

The news gets a bit worse for Tow Materís Junkyard Jamboree and the very novel Luigiís Flying Tires. The initial testing by WDI is proving that Materís musical spinner ride has an hourly capacity of about 750 riders per hour, while Luigiís unique ride system is even less at just 550 riders per hour under the best of circumstances. The queues for those two non-Fastpass rides will be long, and while extra space has been dedicated into the pre-show areas for eventual NextGen additions years from now, it will be a classic Disneyland experience of waiting two hours for a two minute ride that first summer.

Are there any plans to open the rides early for those who can enter through the GC gate?

Thanks for finding that info...very interesting. I wonder why they didn't plan for rides that load more quickly? I hope there will be some shade for those lines!

The only thing known is Cars Land will open June 15. As for any other plans, no one knows.

Has there been any speculation as to whether DCA will at some point have a "Magic Morning" entry an hour earlier than their regular opening time? If they did that would probably change the fact that they open earlier than their stated opening time. And I wonder if their opening early will continue with their grand opening this summer? So many questions we will have to wait to find the answers to! I'm getting excited about this summer!

Has there? There has been plenty.

The only sign that it will is when the new turnstyles were installed. The signs above the tunrstyle that rotate and state on a couple sides, Enter and Exit, also have a Magic Morning Side.

Using a load unload cylce from Test Track at WDW at 20 seconds, dispatching two cars of 12 passengers total on RSR equates to a RSR capactiy of 2160 riders per hour.

On the height requirement for RSR - I called DL today to purchase an AP, and mentioned to the CM that I was hoping my 3 year old will grow a couple of inches so he's tall enough to ride it in September when we go - she said if he is under the height (she didn't specify but I assume 40 inches) he can still ride with an adult. I'm really hoping this is correct!

I've seen that on several rides, so maybe it's good info for this one. The little girl in the story above was on the ride with her 8 year old brother, had there been an adult with her I'm sure that wouldn't have happened. Good luck!
