    I know at WDW there are some rides where all of the fast passes are gone very early, ie Toy Story Mania. Can you tell me the rides that are similar in popularity at Disneyland and DCA? Thank you for your help.

    Hi there Teri,

    You have asked a great question and I offer KUDOS to you for being on the ball when it comes to planning your magical vacation!  Having a plan of attack before your arrival is the key to success!

    Currently, hands down, the NUMBER 1 most sought after FastPass is Radiator Springs Racers in California Adventure.  These FastPasses are usually gone within an hour of the park opening and sometimes sooner!   Wowzas, Right!?

    Here is my trick for snagging one:  Arrive about 30 minutes prior to park opening.  You will be allowed to enter, but guests will remain barricaded in the Buena Vista Street area until official opening.  Have one member of your party take the park tickets and jump in line for the Radiator Springs FastPass kiosk.  Have the rest of your group head towards Cars Land, going as far as they can before reaching the barricade. When the park opens, the FastPass line will begin to move and it moves fairly quickly.  Grab your FastPasses and then hurry to catch up to the rest of your group who will be just arriving at the Radiator Springs Racers Standby line (which will be moving and fairly short this early).  Join them in line and have the ride of your lives. And guess what!?  You still have a FASTPASS to do it all over again.... and trust me, you'll want to!!!

    At Disneyland Park, it seems like the "hot" FASTPASS tickets are for Star Tours, but others include Indiana Jones Adventure, Space Mountain, and Splash Mountain.  

    Best Wishes,
