    Amanda F, Assuming you were at the gates at opening, not a Magic Morning, in what order would you ride the popular rides in order to get the most out of the day? We have 2 DS (7, 6) who are adventurous. Please give suggestions for DL and DCA. Thanks!

    Andrea, here's my touring plan for each park:

    -Go directly from the gates to Space Mountain.  The line will be minimal this early.
    -After Space, walk across to Buzz Lightyear's AstroBlasters
    -Cross back over Main Street and into Adventureland to grab a FastPass for Indiana Jones
    -While waiting for your FP return time, head back to Splash Mountain and wait in that queue line
    -On your way back to Indiana Jones, hit Haunted Mansion and the Pirates of the Caribbean
    -Return for your Indiana Jones FP time
    -Head back to Tomorrowland to grab a FP for Star Tours
    -Break for lunch 
    -Return to grab a FP for Big Thunder Mountain then head over to Matterhorn Bobsleds to wait in queue.
    -Choose any other attractions you'd like while waiting for your Big Thunder return time
    -Ride Big Thunder and the return to Star Tours with your FP

    California Adventure:
    -Head directly to Radiator Springs Racers and ride right away
    -Exit Cars Land and grab a FastPass for California Screamin' as you pass by on your way to Toy Story Mania.
    -Wait in queue and ride Toy Story Mania and any one of the Pier attractions before returning to California Screamin'
    -Ride Screamin' then grab a FP for Soarin'
    -Head over to ride Goofy's Sky School and Ariel's Undersea Adventure.  Hit Grizzly River Run then head back to Soarin'
    -After Soarin' grab a FP for Tower of Terror and head back to Cars Land to ride Mater's Junkyard Jamboree and Luigi's Flying Tires.
    -Grab a bite to eat at Flo's v8 Cafe or a snack at the Cozy Cone Motel before heading back to Tower of Terror for your FP return time!

    I know that's a lot, so please write back to me for any clarification! -Amanda F.
