We have been dreaming of Carsland since it opened. So many people have gone and loved it, coming back with great photos. We couldn't wait to see if the place was just as good as real life! The change in time zone worked to our advantage. We were up nice and early in time to make the early entry to Disney's California Adventures (DCA). We weren't the only ones with that idea. Even though we came 30 minutes before the scheduled opening time, there was already a decent sized line in place which grew rapidly by the minute! We were glad that we didn't dawdle and that it wasn't peak season!

We headed straight for Radiator Springs Racers (RSR). I had not seen the children walk so fast...ever. Although there was already a line, it moved reasonably quickly and we were soon on! Elliot and Lara loved it but Jonah was a little frightened. We acquired ourselves some fastpasses for RSR, although by this time, the return time was already sometime mid afternoon! Taking in the sights and atmosphere of Carsland was such a delightful thing to do. Towmater's Junkyard Jamboree was a hoot as was Luigi's Flying Tires. We ambled in and out of the shops ogling at the merchandise.

We spent the rest of the day enjoying our favourites at DCA. Aladdin never ceases to disappoint. We returned in the evening to revisit the neons of Carsland as we were too tired the evening before to fully appreciate it! It was unbelievable! Everyone returned back to the villa exhausted but sated. It was just enjoyable all around.
