James Corden and Julia Carey throw their hands in the air as they join thrillseekers aboard a roller coaster during family trip to Disneyland
James Corden made the most of his free time on Saturday during a trip to Disneyland with wife Julia Carey.
The Late Late Show presenter, 44, let his hair down at the Anaheim resort, where he joined thrillseekers aboard its famous Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.
With Corden and his family scheduled to move back to England next year, he appeared to be enjoying some time away from the hugely popular CBS show that helped make him a household name in the United States.

The actor and comedian was seen throwing his hands in the air while seated alongside his wife on the famous roller coaster, a common feature at Disneyland, Orlando’s Magic Kingdom, Tokyo Disneyland and Disneyland Park in Paris.
He later bought candy floss before the couple made their way around the teeming California theme park, where they mingled with visiting tourists.
Corden recently fought back tears as he explained why he has decided to step down from his job on The Late Late Show following a seven year run.

He said: ‘Seven and a half years ago, I started hosting this show. And there is no other way to put it, it has changed my life. I love it.
‘I love all the people that work here. I am so proud of what we’ve achieved. It’s been beyond my wildest, wildest dreams. So I’m happy to announce today that I’ve signed a new contract, to carry on hosting The Late Late Show.
‘When I started this journey, it was always going to be just that. It was going to be a journey, an adventure. I never saw it as my final destination, you know?

‘And I never want this show to overstay its welcome in any way. I always want to love making it. And I really think in a year from now that will be a good time to move on and see what else might be out there.’
The Gavin and Stacey star insisted he still has ‘a year to go’ but fought back tears as he talked about walking away.
He went on: ‘We are all determined to make this the best year we have ever had making this show. We are going to go out with a bang.

‘There is going to be Carpools, and Crosswalks, and sketches and other surprises.
‘And there will be tears. There will be so many tears. Cause this has been the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make, it really has.
‘I’ve never taken this job for granted. Ever. Not once. And … the fact that you watch us at home.
‘Or you watch us online. Wherever you are, all over the world. The fact that we get to try and entertain you and spend time with you is an absolute privilege for me and every single person who makes this show.’
Moving on: The presenter will vacate his hosting role on The Late Late Show in 2023
