It will be busier. If you can avoid going on these days in order of best to avoid....Saturday, Sunday, Friday. The weekdays will feel a little worse than weekend days in March and May. Just remember that DCA will feel much different in any case.

The 15th went up a couple days ago on the entertainment schedule but then the next time I looked it sent me back to may, and then those later days dissapeared. On the park hours schedule I saw the same hours yesterday, it was strange they dissapeared from one place and not the other. There is a planned private opening ceremony which is probably why it has a late opening.

After the 15th I would expect DCA hours to go to 8am to 11pm as Disney has these expected hours posted on thier site for months.

The Carthay is nearing completion. All the scaffolding is gone and the marquee looks ready to go.

"The old Tough to Be a Bug Fastpass machine area is behind wraps. Internet speculation is this will be used as the Fastpass distribution area
for the Radiator Spring Racers to help with the expected crowding this summer. (Note the Racers do have their own FP area but rumor is it
will not be used till things calm down.)" -DisneyGeek

Inside Ramone's House of Body Art with Chip Foose

http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blo...er-chip-foose/

Quote:
In the “Cars” movies, Ramone’s House of Body Art is home to a great car artist – the one and only Ramone. So when it came to providing inspiration and styling inside Ramone’s shops at Cars Land in Disney California Adventure park, we turned to the best in the business – Chip Foose.

Chip was the perfect choice in many ways. Chip not only styled Ramone’s various paint schemes for the “Cars” movies, but as owner of Foose Design in Huntington Beach, Calif., he’s world renowned for his designs of customized cars, paint and wheels. Every time we’ve needed an expert to help us out with car colors, wheel designs and other specialized designs, we’ve turned to Chip. He’s spent so much time with us that we consider him an honorary Cars Land team member!

Our guests will be able to experience Ramone’s House of Body Art in two places inside the land – downtown Radiator Springs where it’s a merchandise shop, and inside Radiator Springs Racers where we go to get our paint job freshened up as we head for the big race. Chip and his talented team of pinstripers – Dennis Ricklefs, Brad King and Jeff Styles – have been on site with us recently, adding the finishing touches to both of these locations. It has been so much fun to watch them transform the spaces into something Ramone would be truly proud of. Take a look at this video and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

Of course, we want our guests to feel that it was really Ramone who added all these special touches to our land. Now you know it was really my good friend Chip Foose who was behind it all!

They fixed it. The sign was missing a piece in recent weeks.

It used to have a delta shaped jet. The piece in the middle broke during a wind storm and they removed it. The new sign has a hang glider on it, like we ride in the attraction.

Not really an update, but Cars Land in the background is looking very nice.

"Internet sensations Sophia Grace and Rosie were at Disney California Adventure park yesterday taping a
segment for “The Ellen Degeneres Show.”

Inside Cars Land, the two adorable cousins waved the chequered flag at Radiator Springs Racers, floated on
Luigi’s Flying Tires and visited the Cozy Cone Motel. There’s even a surprise appearance from one of Radiator
Springs’ most famous residents!

The segment is set to air on Tuesday, May 22, so be sure to tune-up, er, I mean, tune-in!"
