Disney Water Park Rentals Prove Popular

If you're planing to stay and play the whole day at either Disney water park, Blizzard Beach or Typhoon Lagoon, then consider heading right for their available rentals.

"Beachcomber Shacks" and "Polar Patios" are available for rent in the water parks and prove to be very popular, often filling up within an hour after the park opens.

Up to six guets can enjoy each shack or patio for the day. Rentals also include towels, Adirondack-style seating, a locker, beverages, and overhead shade and shelter. A personal attendant who can take and deliver orders from a menu is also included.

New Radiator Springs Ride to Debut in 2012

Fans wanting something new in Disney's California Adventure will have their wish. A new ride called Radiator Springs is set to make its premiere in 2012 in the park's Car Land.

Resembling Epcot's renowned Fast Track ride a bit, guests situated in vehicles will be able to take a four minute ride through a Cars-inspired landscape side-by-side with another car. The conclusion of each ride will randomly choose a "winner."

Earlier this year, the LA Times released a complete start-to-finish preview of the ride. If you'd like a bit more detail, read on; beware, spoilers ahead!
