    What is the best one day itinerary to see both the parks. We were going to start at California Adventure first. Rides at Adventure, racers, screamin, soarin, tower of terror. At Disneyland, matterhorn, splash mountain, tea cups plus fireworks.

    Welcome back Jeremy!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel again. I hope you are having a magical week.

    For those attractions I would definitely start over in Disney California Adventure Park and get there as soon as they open to grab a FASTPASS for Radiator Springs Racers. After that pass has expired, I would grab one for Soarin’ over California. You could most likely do California Screaming without a FASTPASS while waiting for the return time of either of the other two rides.

    When you head over to Disneyland Park, I would check the return times for the Matterhorn Bobsleds and Splash Mountain to determine which you wait in the queue for and which you would want to grab a FASTPASS for. The Mad Tea Party is a perfect attraction to go on in between rides as the lines are usually quicker. Then end the night on Main Street U.S.A. to watch the fireworks over Sleeping Beauty’s Castle! Another great spot to watch the fireworks is over by It’s A Small World. There are less crowds and a fantastic view!

    I hope this helps and let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your visit!

    See you real soon!
