You're correct, this has changed as of very recently. My mistake.
One piece of advice I would give is that they don't serve alcohol anywhere inside Disneyland. So you might want to spend at least part of the afternoon/evening at California Adventure if you're trying to get a buzz.
I corrected that in that later post. It’s a Friday. I had my days screwed up. Sorry everyone. If DCA is open early, what would you suggest doing with MaxPass? Should I still grab Radiator Springs first?
As for Tiki Room, I don’t know... I did the one at Magic Kingdom and personally I thought it was the single worst attraction in the park (and I rode Stitch’s Great Escape that day). Every kid in the place looked bored out of their minds and every adult was on their phone or looking around wondering what kind of terrible mistake they had just made.
Different strokes, but I really, really don’t get how the Tiki Room is allowed to exist in a Disney Park. Maybe this one is better but if I’m ranking Disney attractions I put the Orlando version right below the parking tram and Stitch.

Ah, ok, I missed that then. That changes the recommendations entirely. Do Disneyland first, and go to the Fantasyland rides at opening. Still get Fastpass for Space Mountain and Haunted Mansion. Do DCA at the end of the day instead; since it's on early magic hour, most people will do it early in the day. Keep in mind that Radiator Springs Racers may be out of Fastpasses and also that DCA has no beer jail and I think you can figure out the plan.
Even if you don't want to rope drop a ride at DCA, I still recommend getting your ticket scanned there (they have early entry and standard entry gates if they replicate Sunday's set up) so you can make your first MaxPass reservation as soon as possible.
I would recommend Radiator Springs first. If you get it first, you may get an 8-9 window like I did. Otherwise you could have to wait a long window (I think it's 1.5-2 hours) before your next FastPass.
You can then either walk 2 minutes to queue up at Disneyland's entrance or stay at DCA.

I like this plan. I'd really like Radiator Springs Racers with Brit so I'll try to get a Fastpass for it. Do the standard entry gates open at the same time? If so, I would assume you would most likely get that first window if you immediately hop on the app and book it once you scan in right?
