    I don't think the Cars attraction is eligible for early entry, but is it better to line up from early entry? I would like to know your recommendations.

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, friend (Youkoso!). We're so glad you're here to share this question with us. Even more, I'm so glad to hear about your upcoming visit to the Disneyland Resort. It's almost here so let's make sure you're all ready.

    One of my favorite places to visit in Disney California Adventure Park is Radiator Springs and one of my top attractions is Radiator Springs Racers. I can definitely understand why you are planning ahead to make sure that you are able to experience this attraction. You are correct, unfortunately, Radiator Springs Racers is not one of the attractions available during early entry. You can absolutely position yourself near Cars Land to ensure you are as close to the attractions as possible to get in line once the park opens and the rope is dropped. This is definitely what I would do. 

    Not to worry if this doesn't work out. You also have the option to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane to experience Radiator Springs Racers. I did this during my last visit with friends and it was so nice being able to reduce our wait time significantly. If you'd like to do this, you can purchase the Individual Lightning Lane in the Disneyland app by tapping the "☰" in the lower right corner to open the menu and then tapping the "Tip Board" tile. Make sure the park is set to Disney California Adventure Park and scroll down to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for Radiator Springs Racers. 

    Well, friend, I hope I've given you some ideas to think about as you make a plan for tackling Radiator Springs Racers during your visit. If you think of any other questions that we can help with, please share them with us. I'll be sending you all the pixie dust hoping that everything goes smoothly for you. Ganbatte kudasai!
