Today 2/27/13 Cars Land

I just wanted to share a couple of thoughts on my quick visit to Cars Land today. I had the day off from work and decided I wanted to ride Radiator Springs Racers so I headed over to California Adventure.
I arrived just after 10am and there was a small crowd upon entering the park.
I headed straight to Route 66 and I passed most people stopping to get fastpasses for the racers.
I arrived at Cars Land and the crowds were not bad yet. Today was a predicted crowd level 1 so I wasnt really expecting anything different.

I think it looks a bit more crowded in the picture than it actually was because the park had just opened.
Since I was here alone I jumped in the single rider line. The wait time when I entered said 30 minutes but it did not even take 20 minutes before I was on the ride.
Here is a picture from the single rider line.


Before I knew it I was on the ride. I love this ride as the scenery and staging is so wonderful. You feel like you are riding through Radiator Springs.


Even after the ride the exit provides a fun place to stop and watch the cars fly by.


I made my way through Cars Land stopping in the shops and even sat and people watched for a while before I started on my way out.

I did have to pick up one of these delicious treats.

They make homemade gourmet marshmallows in the park. They are really good and have many flavors to chose from. I picked out the Luscious Lemon for a sweet end to a short jaunt to ride the Radiator Springs Racers.

I split the marshmallow with my family and it was sooo good.
This was the first time I have had the homemade type from here.
It was light fluffy flavorful and melts in your mouth. Id definetly get these again and try a couple different flavors out.

I hope everyone who is visiting soon enjoys the great weather and has good time.
