When Guests visit Disneyland, they often expect to do a variety of things. Some may want to enjoy the thrilling attractions, others may want to snack on all the delicious food options, others may want to shop the merchandise, and some may just want to take a stroll around Sleeping Beauty Castle and enjoy the Dapper Dans singing at the foot of Main Street, U.S.A.

At times, you may see someone reading while at Disney, but typically, they would be doing this at a bench or table. A rare occurrence would be seeing them do this on an attraction! One Reddit thread was sparked after a Disneyland Guest noticed that in a photo they took while at the Park, one of the riders on Radiator Springs Racers in the Cars Land of Disney California Adventure was nose deep into a book. 

I found someone studying in a photo I took during a trip to the parks earlier this month. What is she reading?

It seems likely that this Guest was taking the photo as a joke, as many of the comments on the Reddit thread suggested. Many noted other funny photos they have taken or seen on attractions. One reader said, “There’s this one photo from splash mountain, it’s two guys going head-to-head in Super Smash Bros. Melee, and their friend holding a poster board that’s representing the TV screen.” Another noted that they often take these funny photos, “Probably a joke for the ride photo. My husband and I have done goofy things like fixing makeup or voguing.”

Much like EPCOT’s Test Track, Radiator Springs Racer has a very fast section of the attraction, as we can see in the photo above, which makes the idea of reading a book even more hilarious as the Guest’s hair is whipping in the wind!

More on Radiator Springs Ravers

Disneyland describes the attraction as:

Cruise Through Radiator Springs
Kick the fun into overdrive as you buckle up for a road race featuring familiar car-acters, fantastic scenery and “wheel” thrills.

Tour Ornament Valley and arrive in Radiator Springs—the cutest little town in Carburetor County—where the movie Cars springs to life.

As you prep for the big race, all the locals show up to help. Mater, Lightning McQueen, Doc Hudson, Sally, Luigi, Guido, Mack and Ramone are all rooting for you!

Take a quick spin into either Luigi’s Casa Della Tires or Ramone’s House of Body Art to get a racing makeover—then hit the road.

Ready, Get Set, Go!

Meet your friendly competition at the starting line and get ready to race for first place! Zip over hills, zoom around high-banked turns and cruise down camelback straightaways past spectacular red-rock formations.

Even if your car comes in second, this is one race where everyone’s a winner!

Home on the Cadillac Range
The towering Cadillac Range mountains serve as a majestic backdrop for Radiator Springs Racers.

Car buffs may notice the 6 mountain peaks look like tail fins of classic Cadillac models from 1957 to 1962. The mountains are inspired by the iconic Cadillac Ranch public art installation along Route 66 near Amarillo, Texas.
