nullThe Disney Resort is practically in my backyard. Throughout the years we learned a lot about Disney’s parks, hotels, shopping, and restaurants. In these pages, we will share our knowledge with you.

Cars Land is the newest addition to the California Adventure park. It spans 12 acres simulating the town of Radiator Springs and Route 66 from the Cars movie.

The land is home to the popular ride Radiator Springs Racers along with other rides for the younger guests and several dining places.

Radiator Springs Racers

nullThis is a car driving experience through the town of Radiator Springs. After you board your six-passenger car, you will cruise through town and be greeted by familiar faces from the “Cars” movie.

​Passing through an Archway, a valley and under a waterfall, you will end up at the race starting line. Expect some surprises along the way as you pass through a dark and mysterious area.

At the start line, your car will race another car to the finish line going through some nullexhilarating sharp turns and steep drops. The cars in this section of the ride can go up to 40 miles an hour. 

While you race away, notice the “Cadillac Range Mountains”. The peaks resemble the tail fins of classic Cadillac models from 1957 to 1962. <FastPass Available> <Single Rider Line>

Tip: At one of those sharp turns with a drop - towards the end - your photo will be taken. Be ready to make your goofiest pose for the camera.

Cars Land also has two additional attractions that are more appropriate for smaller children:

Mater's Junkyard Jamboree: Ride a trailer that is pulled by a funny looking tractor. 

Luigi's Rollickin' Roadsters: You sit in your vintage cars, then the cars start dancing around the yard.
