    Great Trip Report, thanks for sharing. I love your food reports, the food is one of the things I really enjoy at the park...just people watching, enjoying the atmosphere, and chowing down on delicious snacks and meals!

    Ahh, loooved the trip! It's great! Great pictures!!

    Going to Disneyland this weekend and I can't wait to see CL at dark if we stay that late! Gosh, it's beautiful during the day so I can only imagine it at night!

    We're going again in next weekend for my birthday and I'm totally gonna see if I can get the Dapper Dan's to sing! Ha.

    We have this huge Disneyland trip planned for August and normally when we go to Disneyland we try and eat healthy and bring our own food and that sort of stuff, but we decided to make that trip about food too! We have one reservation each day at all the yummy restaurants and will pack our other meal. Can't wait! We're going all out on that trip- World of Color, Fantasmic, etc. Maybe we'll have to get ourselves those Glow with the Show hats, I've only been hearing positivine things about them
    ...After a YEAR I finally was able to figure out my password again! I'm baaack! Woohoo!(:

    I wouldn't call it frightening, but yes. The extra yeti goodness was what I was referring to. Also, all of our group who rode both sides swore that the right side was slower.

    Thanks so much for the report...I didn't think I could be more excited for our trip in a few weeks...but now I am.

    Carsland 'lighting' is definately on my list now! Do you know if they do it at a certain time? Or should I just be in that section at dusk?

    We were told "around 8". It was just after 8pm when we were there. The Cast Members wouldn't give us an exact time, though.

    The Voices of Liberty do "Happy Birthday" also, in their typical fashion, during their outside segment.

    I'm an AP and I've been able to get over to DCA twice now since carsland opened but I still have so much left to do! Because of your review, now I'm going to make sure I see the neons go on in Carsland and try the pear drink at cozy cones! We saw it but were not sure it would be worth the money. You say it's good so I'm going to give it a try!

    Ooh, fun! The birthday girl wasn't with us when we saw them, so we missed out on that part. We did have one of the Voices ask us where we got the Starbucks.

    Ironic that we just watched "Cars" again a couple of nights ago, and the idea of lighting the neon signs in Cars Land the way they did in the movie never occurred to me! I'm sure glad that the imagineers thought of it, though.

    I can't wait to go down and see it for myself!

    Great trip report! I remember buying a strawberry funnel cake at the stage door cafe just before my family wanted to go home. I said I will catch up and meet them at the tram to the Mickey and Friends parking structure. You would not believe how hard it was to swim through crowds of people on Main Street holding a delicious concoction such as my funnel cake! The looks I was receiving were priceless. Everybody either looked really jealous or scared I would drop it! Needless to say I made it to the tram station without spilling a drop and shared it with my family even though they did not want to wait with me to get one!

    There IS a little blurb in the Times Guide that says: "Cars Land Lighting- Each evening as night falls over Cars Land, don't miss a special moment showcasing the beautiful neon lights and views of Radiator Springs. Excellent viewing is available all along Route 66 at dusk."

    It can happen anytime after 8 PM. Sometimes it's at 8:03, sometimes it's at 8:12. That's what makes it special! You never know until you hear the atmosphere music go silent.
    It's actually "Cars Land", not "Carsland".
