I think we will definitely do all of the those with the exception to Toy Story mania, because we did that at WDW and it was OK, but not really worth the long wait.

They say the wait for DCA's Toy Story Midway Mania isn't so long. Although when we were there the waits were still well over an hour, but that was near the holidays and I think a lot of locals were there as well. Worth a look anyhow when you go to see if the wait isn't too long.

When we were there in July it wasn't horrible, but it was still a rather long wait. 30-45 minutes. So it just depends on how badly you want to play the games, if that length of time is worth it. The times weren't anything even remotely approaching the WDW crowded day wait times.

That's not too bad. But I doubt DH will want to wait for that, since we've already done it at WDW. We shall see though. DD wants to do California Screamin very badly, so I think that will be the top attraction at DCA for her.

California Screamin' is awesome! And that attraction has both FP and single rider line so that helps with the wait as well. Radiator Springs Racers would be my first choice for a FP though.

Mousekedittos to everything Amy said. Get your RSR fastpasses first thing. And remember, the fastpasses distribution is in a different location. Exactly what that is escapes me at the moment... But a cast member will cheerfully tell you and 6472626273746473828291910 other people where to find it.

Love.

Screamin!!!!!!!!! Totally could have ridden over and over again.

Yeah i am thinking that RSR will be our FP for DCA. California Screamin will probably be one that DD and I ride more than once, with DH watching silently from the sidelines. ha ha
