Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin

We took a trip to Disneyland Resort in California over the Easter break, and it was a good trip for the most part.

One thing was disappointing, however. We stood in line for the Roger Rabbit ride, probably spent about 30 to 45 minutes in the line. Then we got up to the spot where we could see the loading happening, and we were probably 5 minutes or less from being loaded on ourselves, depending on the number of fastpass people who came in while we were waiting.

And the ride went down.

No one seemed to know what was going on with it. But it wasn't running, and no one knew exactly how long it would take to get it back up and running. So we didn't get to do the ride.

This would not bear mentioning, however, if not for the fact that we were there last near (2008) at the same time of the year, and the EXACT SAME THING happened to us on that ride. We stood in line for much longer then, and we actually got up to where we would be the very next ones loaded into the "load area", where they assign you a row. And it broke down.

That time we waited. We hung around for about a half hour, or maybe longer, thinking that they were going to get it fixed and since we had waited so long in line, we wanted to try the ride. It looked fun. And it was, though not as fun as the long line would suggest.

This year we didn't wait. We figured it was karma or fate telling us that we weren't meant to do this ride. I mean, to have it happen almost exactly the way it happened last year, with the long wait in line then getting into the area where you could see the end of the wait, then having it go down, then having the cast members looking clueless about what was wrong with it...just not meant to be.

My kids were saying, "Never again will we wait for this Roger Rabbit ride." They are happy with the Monsters Inc ride over at California Adventure.
