    We're going to Disneyland this coming May(first weekend). We've been to DW a few times, but I haven't been to DL since the early 90's. Any suggestions on what rides/attractions to get fast passes to first. We have 2 day Park Hoppers. Is it busy in May?

    Hi there Justin!  Wow!  It's been a while since your last visit to Disneyland and you're gonna be amazed at the many changes that have taken place since your last visit...most importantly, the addition of the Downtown Disney Marketplace and California Adventure Park!  To top all of that, there have been so many expansions and improvements this year alone!  This is the PERFECT time for you to pay a return visit to "The Happiest Place on Earth."

    I always tell guests to arrive at the parks as early as possible and grab one FastPass right away before getting the popular non-FastPass rides out of the way before the parks fill up!  At Disneyland, I recommend grabbing a FastPass for either Space Mountain or Indiana Jones ASAP before heading over to Fantasyland to knock out all of those classic attractions first!  After you're finished there, head over to Adventureland, as this area gets busier as the day goes on!

    Over at California Adventure, you'll definitely want to head straight to the all-new attraction Radiator Springs Racers to grab a FASTPASS.  Do NOT pass go.  This bride, inspired by the "Cars" movies is fabulous beyond words and since the recent opening of Cars Land, this attraction has been increasingly popular, therefore attracting huge crowds!  After you have your Radiator Springs Racers FASTPASS in hand, I recommend checking out the other new Cars Land attractions first: Luigi's Flying Tires, and Mater's Junkyard Jamboree!  Don't forget to grab a FASTPASS for the nighttime spectacular "World of Color" on your way in as well!

    Best Wishes,
