It took quite a few phone calls, but here's what we have now for estimated capacity and ride times for the California Adventure rides - all subject to change of course:

Capacity looks, well - um - low, no?  Keep in mind these are optimal loading times and numbers - something that will be rarely achieved in real time / world operation. We've all been on rides that don't cycle this efficiently at Disneyland.

By the way - as you'll note above, most attraction pre- shows, such as the one planned for the Soaring Imax film have been yanked due to FastPass (and to save money). The Whoopie movie still has no set final timing - due to a death scene everyone is nervous about that they have to either keep or get rid of.

HEIGHT RESTRICTIONS:

Soarin' Over California 42" (IMAX ride film)

Grizzly River Run 42" (Raft ride)

Orange Stinger 48" (Spinner)

Jumpin Jellyfish 40" (Chute drop)
