    Hi, I've seen that on Monday 13, November, California Adventures park closes at 5pm. Is it possible to visit principal attractions on this park by 5pm? Knowing that I will be alone and can ride single riders lanes on supported attractions. Thanks!

    Hi Louis! Welcome to planDisney! Thanks so much for stopping by our happy website to ask us about visiting Disney California Adventure Park! 

    In the words of Walt Disney, "It's kind of fun to do the impossible." While I don't think it's impossible to ride all of the major attractions before Disney California Adventure Park closes, it really depends on what time you arrive. Given that the theme park is closing early on your arrival date, I recommend arriving at the parking opening which is 8:00 a.m. on your arrival date. If you happen to be staying at one of the Disneyland Resort Hotels, you can take advantage of Early Entry and begin your day there at 7:30 a.m. I also suggest using a little bit of strategy to achieve your goal of riding all of the major attractions. 

    Radiator Springs Racers in Cars Land is extremely popular, so I would start there first. There is a single rider line, and this should help reduce your wait in line. From there, I would check attraction wait times and plan to ride all attractions in each land versus zig-zagging across the park. Once you scan for entry at the theme park, you could also consider purchasing Disney Genie+ Service through the Disneyland Mobile App. This will allow you to reserve a return time at more popular attractions like Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT! 

    Another way to maximize your day is to use the Disneyland Mobile App for Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering. I like to place a mobile while I'm in line at an attraction and pick it up once I have enjoyed the ride. This is a huge time saver, and it gives you more time to enjoy the rides!

    We can't wait for you to be our guest, and I hope you enjoy all of the magic that The Happiest Place on Earth has to offer! Please visit us again at planDisney when you're ready to plan another Disney Parks vacation. We would love to help!

    See ya real soon!
