To continue our trip out West, we're now on Day 5. This was our last full day, so we planned on catching some things back at California Adventure.
Since we were staying at the Fairfield and had no plans for breakfast that morning, I walked over to the McDonald's and grabbed us our favorite guilty pleasures.
Once we were ready, we headed over to California Adventure. Since we had already done Radiator Springs with a Fastpass, we decided to try our luck just walking over to it when the park opened that morning.

We didn't have too much interest in riding Luigi's flying tires, so we skipped that ride and I hopped in line for Mater's Junkyard Jamboree. It was only posted as a 10 minute wait! It was amazing how during the week the lines really died down.

We decided to head over to Paradise Pier. It was time for Midway Mania!
|I AM NOT YOUR MOTHER, BREAK THOSE PLATES!|
We decided to head back over to Radiator Springs to see if it was running. It was! So we got in line (single riders) and in about 5 minutes, we realized we couldn't hear any cars running over our heads (we were under a bridge.) So we waited about another 5 minutes and decided to check it out later. Sure enough, as we were leaving the Cast Members were telling people that it was currently closed. Whomp whomp! Glad we did it earlier in the week!

Next on our list was Tower of Terror! It was essentially a walk on, so we couldn't skip it! We had some time to kill before our big lunch at Carthay Circle, so we went into the Animation area. We sat in on a Turtle Talk, discovered our inner characters (my Mom and I both got Maleficent, I'm strangely proud) and learned to draw Piglet!

After that diversion, we checked in for our lunch at Carthay Circle.
