Monday July 9th, 2018:
Arrived at Disney California Adventure Park at 7am. I waited for the gates to open at 7:30am.
I was 16 rides away from reaching the 10,600 mark at Radiator Springs Racers.
The temperature at gate opening was 78 degrees. It was supposed to be a hot and humid day.
When I came into the park, I found out that Racers was down. A track switch issue. So, I headed to Guardians of The Galaxy: Mission Breakout.
I got photos with Teo and Maria at rope drop. I also got a selfie with Wendy.
I got a Fastpass for Guardians for 8am. Another for 8:10am and one for 8:25am. I saw my good friend Amanda as I came into the Guardians store . She was working there. It has been awhile since I got to visit with her. Of course we took a couple selfies. I miss seeing her.
I got a photo with Andy before ride 402. Got a 4th Fastpass for 8:45am. Then another for 9am. I sure love the Max Pass System. Got another Fastpass for 9:30am.
After my 5th time on Guardians, I saw that Racers was finally open. After using my 9:30am Fastpass, I headed over to Racers.
I arrived at Racers at 9:59am. I got on the ride 6 times by 11:58am. That brought my ride total to 10,590.
I took a brief break and got back in Racers Single Rider line at 12:11pm. The temperature was 93 degrees.
It took until 1:37pm to get on 2 more times. So I took another break.
I had a Fastpass for Guardians at 1:50pm. I took my 7th gantry left Ride for the day.
I got back to Racers at 2:18pm. The temperature was 89 degrees.
Got in one ride to reach 10,593. The single rider line was 40 minutes long. So I took another break at 3:03pm.
I got back to Racers at 5:27pm. Took 2 more laps to reach 10,595. I had one more Fastpass for Guardians. I took gantry lift number 8 for the day. That brought my total to 408.
I returned to Racers at 7:11pm. The temperature was 80 degrees with 54% humidity. I got one more ride in for the day. Twelve total rides to reach 10,596. I need 4 rides on Tuesday to hit 10,600.
Tuesday July 10th, 2018:
I arrived at the Mickey and Friends parking structure at 6am. I got to DCA entrance at 7am. The temperature was 74 degrees and 79% humidity. Already melting.
I got a Fastpass for Guardians at 8:30. But headed to Racers at 8am. Fingers crossed the ride will cooperate today.
I was in the 2nd car in the station but first across the finish line. Three rides to go.
After the 2nd ride, I cancelled my Guardians Fastpass for 8:30am. I wanted to stay at Racers until I hit the milestone.
At 8:45am, I took my 10,600 ride on Racers. I got to ride with my friends Jason and Catalina. We lost the race but that doesn’t matter. I got to ride with my friends on the big lap. Thanks to Mikey and Jason for setting it up.
I got a selfie with Jason and Catalina after the race. Then Mikey, Jennifer, and Rosanna.
I then went over to Guardians to use my 9;20am Fastpass. I got a photo with Amanda as I walked through the store. I had a Fastpass for 9:50am and used that also.
I got back to Racers at 10:21am. The temperature was 80 degrees and 60% humidity. One ride and a visit with Carolyn. Back to the ride at 11:17am. The humidity is now 49% and 85 degrees. It feels like an oven.
Got selfies with Heyse, Meli, Brittany , Kelly, and Sarah, along the way. 15 rides today with a new total of 10,611.
As I was leaving the park , my friend Sasha ran up to me, to say hi. We got a selfie. Always great to see her.
The ride was awesome today. Not one downtime. I think the ride wanted me to reach this milestone today. KA CHOW.
