    Cool spot for the kids. The cars racers ride is fun, although you are WAY better off getting the FAST PASS for it. The line can get crazy long. Take a pic w McQueen and/or Mater, and grab a good bite

    Get here first thing in the morning, or go get your Fastpass immediately at the entrance to Cars Land. It is very popular and passes go quickly, but should not be missed!

    Get in line before the park opens & go straight to Radiator Springs Racers. No fast pass. We wait 5-20minutes tips every time. It's our first stop every morning. Best way we've found to beat the line.

    If you're an adult and with a smaller group of friends the single-riders line is definitely worth it. Max wait of 15 minutes and you can oftentimes get a car together or race against one another.

    Very fun attraction and it sure lives up to the Disney name. If you are in line and it breaks down (frequently) just stay in line you won't be disappointed.

    Standing in line is going to be a long wait. Get the fast pass as soon as you get into the park because they run out FAST! Fun ride! Race against other riders!

    If you don't mind the regular line though they will come with refreshments it on occasion. Otherwise best to try to do either single rider or Fastpass to avoid hour plus waits.

    You can only get fastpasses with park tickets if the park tickets have been used to enter the park. Can't let everyone else sleep in and get passes with their tickets. Be warned !

    It's just like the movie. Great view of Carsland on this ride and is super fast. Worth the wait! Make sure you grab a fast pass if they're available.

  • M.U.S.E. - Music Unity Sports Entertainment
    Radiator Springs Racers is a fun ride but get your fast passes when the park opens they go very fast. They also have a single rider line if you don't mind going by yourself.

    Pretty cool attraction since Rocket Rods was shutdown. If you like this ride a lot check out Test Track at Epcot! It's what this ride is based off and it's faster and more interactive!

    My favorite ride at Disneyland! Just like the movie cars and you actually get to ride in a car from the movie or one like it anyway. Highly recommend getting a fast pass for this ride!
  • Guilherme C.
    The most crowded attraction in the entire park. You'll definitely need a fast pass for this one. And make sure you get it in the morning.

    Fast pass distribution starts at 8 and sells out really quick. Make sure you get there early! We got there at 7:30 and the line was massive!

    Be patient if they hold up on letting more people into the single rider line. The wait is brief. As others have said, single rider is very fast and just as fun.

    If you couldn't get a ticket for World of Color head here for a short line, assuming park is at medium capacity, line should be 25 minutes just after World of Color if you can get here fast enough

    Definitely get to the park a half-hour early to get in line for fastpasses, unless you enjoy 2+ hour long wait times. Or do single-rider, which is still about an hour on average.

    If your group doesn't mind splitting up, the single rider line is the way to go. The wait time is usually drastically shorter than the standby line.

    If you want a fast pass you have to get here when the park opens. After that jump into the single rider line and ride it a few times in a row.

    This attraction is amazing, but the line for Fastpasses starts forming before the park even opens. To ensure you ride it, get your Fastpass early!

    This ride should offer FastPasses on an hourly basis considering how much it has a tendency of breaking down. Single Rider Lane: No kids ages 6 and younger are allowed in the line.

    If you're not there when the park opens, make sure getting your fast pass is the first thing you do, otherwise you'll be queueing for hours.

    If you don't mind who you are riding with, use the single rider entrance!! You all go in together and get on the car quickly. You may not be in the same car, but it's much quicker than riding standby.

    We waited for 60 min. The ride is really boring. Ride the single rider line if you must ride this ride. Don't buy water from vender in line. It's a dollar more than rest of park.

    Unless you feel like running to beat people, you'll never get a fastpass. Just ride single rider. Much easier and quicker.

    If you're in the front and raise your arms at the finish, you ruin the photo op for those in the back row. Be considerate and do your victory dance later.

    Three racers per row, six per car. If you have a group of 7+, know that there is absolutely no way for you to all ride together in one car.

    This ride has decided to break down twice in one day!! Disney u need to either shut down the ride for long term maintenance or get rid of it. Obviously, the ride wasn't ready to open to begin with.

    Single Rider is about 75% quicker than waiting in the standby line. It breaks down all the time but does not take forever to fix like others said. 10 min at most or they'll have you exit the line.
