We did this today, and we werewe're 3rd & 4th in line. In the 1st car. Bad thing that our racing car was empty. We got to the main gates at about 6:50 and the line was about 20-25 people deep.

If I'm on the first car, I'll put up with nobody in my racing car.

Some recently reported that disney did not use rope drop when they were there so the technique did not help them. CM's were telling people not to run but without a rope holding them back, of course people rushed to line up. The ride is on the right side of CL but if there is no rope drop, all bets are off.

For EMH this morning, everyone was power walking/running to CL - but once the crowd hit CL, they held us up and we all followed McQueen slowly down the road. It did benefit us to be on the right because of course we had to turn right, but it wasn't any kind of huge advantage. The huge advantage was being there for EMH. We rode RSR twice before 9:00 and zipped through the line a third time (just before the hordes came) and were first in line to hop in a car when the ride broke down. The people who had waited outside the gates for normal opening, and then at rope drop, were rewarded with a 2 hr closure. Ugh.

We were there on Monday 8/27 for EE (this would have been a non APEE early entry day; APs have it on Tuesday, so hotel guests only for DCA on Monday) and there was no rope drop, so wide right did not do us any good. They just told us not to run. For the most part, people actually didn't! I saw they did a rope drop later on that day for regular entry -- I didn't notice where it started, though.

Seriously telling people not to run was so laughable. They would just look at the cast member like "what you going to do about it?" and take off. There were a number of stroller people around us that really held us back as they seemed a little "lost" kind of waffling around on their direction. Frustrating.

I am suprised how much this ride is down.

Just used the wide right technique on Friday morning - we were the 12, 13, 14, 15th people on cars that morning. Great tip!!

One more thing - I highly encourage you to use the single rider line. The regular line was 120 mins and single rider was 30. My DS8 and I were often in the same car, just 1 row apart.

Hey, that must have been our group of 8 in front of you on Friday! I was on the far right hugging the line of pavement with my little guy shoving me back so he could be at the front....lol. The trick worked great...but seems to be catching on.

The wide right didn't work so well for us on Tuesday. I think it was just our group was a little slow and first time in Cars Land (we had first timers plus there were 12 of us so takes a little bit longer to get somewhere). I was still happy with the amount of time we waited. I forgot to pay attention but BIL says it was about 20 mins. It was also an APEE day so there were more people. By the time we quickly walked to RSR a line was already forming, no rope drop. DBIL and I decided to walk towards the front of the attraction while the rest of the group waiting in line just to see how long the line was and had some guy yell out " there's a line up". Yeah buddy! We know that..we're already in line just checking things out. So in other words people are pretty testy.Thursday was way better. No APEE and we steered far right and I'd say we were one of the first 20 on. We followed Mater (kept telling the family FAR RIGHT!)and followed cast member and walked right onto the ride. After riding a few more rides, DBIL and I got into the fast pass line with 4 minutes to spare to grab FP which we used later in that evening. Our FP time was 10:30 am but I double checked with a cast member and was told I could use my FP after that time.You have to ride this ride a night too.....totally different experience.
