Hi Judy,

The only comparison between the two, in my opinion, is that they both use the same mechanism to run the cars.

To me, it seems like 3 attractions in one. The first part is a scenic ride in the far west, then you go into the dark ride portion, which is like being in the town of Radiator Springs and seeing the characters. In the last part of the ride your car is prepped - either getting white walls or a paint detail - and then you race the other car to the finish.

The race is the fast part, and it's like driving a car - nothing like a roller coaster. You do bank a turn, though.

If your parents did Test Track, this will be no more of a thrill ride. It sure is fun, though.

Sorry, I missed this one Judy.

Even though TT and RSR have the same ride system, they are hard to compare. I like TT because of the technology theming. RSR is cool mostly because it so richly themed around Radiator Springs and the Cars movies - even though those movies were so-so for me. I don't think you can say "if you like TT you will like RSR" - or vice versa. Any more than you can about Indy vs. Dinosaur at AK. The rides feel very different and I like them both for different reasons. If I had to choose a favorite between TT and RSR I would be hard pressed. I know my final ride on RSR at night (my third ride overall) felt really cool going around the RS mountain range. So RSR is more enveloping as far as theme. But I prefer the TT theme overall to the RSR theme even though it is not quite so enveloping.

I hope you can make some sense of what I just said because I am not sure I can!

I'm glad to see you made it back to CA after your summer illness. Interesting about seeing Carsland first in the day and then at night to really appreciate it -- I think that's a good suggestion for everyone. We saw it first in the day and it is so pretty. Then saw it at night and I think that's the right approach.

So cool that you got to eat in Club 33!

I really want to go back to DL in the fall to see the Nightmare HM again. It's been years since I've been. I'm sure it doesn't feel very Halloween-ish, but I really enjoy it. And to hear that Space is cool too, makes me want to go more!

Thanks for sharing your trip and photos.

(adding comments about Test track vs Radiator Racers)
For me, Test Track is more thrilling, it just seems like you go much faster, like a race car, and those banking turns are really cool. Radiator Racers is more about the theming -- very well done, very cute. You feel like you're in the Cars movie. Both have good points, but are not the same ride.
