    We’re coming for our second visit on February 8-11. My daughter loves California screaming, is there any chance it will be open while we are there?

    Hello, Pamela! Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
    I share your daughter’s affinity for California Screamin’! On my last visit, I rode it four times in a row during Extra Magic Hour because there was no line. It was amazing! As you may be aware, this area of the park is undergoing a big transition into what will eventually be Pixar Pier. In order to complete the transformation, a few attractions closed for refurbishment last month, including California Screamin’. It is set to reopen as the Incredicoaster when the rest of Pixar Pier opens this summer, so, unfortunately, it will not be open for your trip later this week.
    But if thrills are what your daughter is after, then there are still plenty of ways get them at both parks. If you haven’t visited since Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT opened, then this attraction should be at the very top of your list. This ride is non-stop rises and falls all set to the awesome soundtrack found in the Guardians of the Galaxy movies. It is over-the-top exhilarating!
    In Disneyland Park, Space Mountain and Indiana Jones Adventure are both full of hair-raising twists, turns, and thrills. Additionally, I’m sure you have hopped aboard Big Thunder Mountain Railroad a time or two, but try riding in the very back. Usually, I recommend riding roller coasters in the front, but for this one, I find it much more exciting to be tossed around in the back car. Don’t forget that using Disney FASTPASS Service or Disney MaxPass is the best way to ride all these attractions lots of times without much wait.
    I hope you have a wonderful trip to the Happiest Place on Earth!
