Disney California Park crowd levels tomorrow January 10th ?

Hi there we are just trying to decide if we should visit California Adventure tomorrow. Does anyone have any idea what the crowd levels are likely to be. We have just done WDW over Christmas and could not cope if crowd levels were likely to be similar. I am just about over theme parks but would like to see the Cars Land. Many thanks for any assistance.

Touring Plans which is a crowd planning website is predicting crowds at a 6 out of 10 for Jan 10th, which is pretty good.

Make sure if you want to ride the Radiator Springs Racer you are either at the entrance to California Adventure Park 30 min before regular Park opening time as they open up part of the park to pick up a Fastpass for that ride which usually has longer lines. Or do Single rider if possible for your group as that has the least wait time. Or just make sure you arrive early so you can wait for regular Park opening time right at the "rope" area inside the Park and make your way straight to that ride first.

Thanks so much. We are driving from San Diego and thought we would stop in on the way to our hotel in L A. Have now decided we will maybe look at going next Monday. Do you have any idea what the traffic is like from Hollywood to Anaheim or what time we should leave Hollywood to be at DCA for rope drop?

Thanks so much for the assistance. We are on the last leg of our holiday and just trying to fit everything in. Your help is much appreciated.

It will be not as bad as christmas which is the busiest part of the year, but it is always crowded if the weather is good. If you want to ride radiator springs go to the single rider line, it is much faster

As far as traveling from Hollywood to Anaheim, your talking about a 1 hour drive in pretty good traffic. Then add in another 30 min to Park and actually get inside the Park to the Turnstiles. And keep in mind if you are thinking about the Radiator Springs Racer ride, and cant do the single rider line, then you would want to already be in line 30 min before regular Park opening time.

Things are different on Monday obviously for traveling than they would be today on a Friday. There would be heavier traffic as people are going to work. And hours at Disneyland are very different than they would be on a Friday. Crowds are more likely to be around a 4 or 5 out of 10. Hours on Monday are going to be 10am till 8pm with no Fireworks or Fantasmic shows. And it looks like no World of Color show in California Adventure Park.

To miss the heavier traffic, I might suggest leaving by 7am or earlier. You can always walk around downtown Disney for a little while if you need to, or have extra time to get in the line going into California Adventure Park.

FYI, Fantasmic! is on Hiatus for a few months, and World of Color will be down for a couple of weeks.
