We’re counting down to the grand re-opening of Disney California Adventure® Park
and the grand opening of Cars Land on June 15, 2012! And we’ll be sharing it with you!
Click THIS LINK to visit the Cars Land mini-site.
On this page, you’ll find a countdown clock to the Cars Land grand opening, highlights of what’s new at Disney California Adventure Park, special greetings from some “Cars” friends, and a link to the consumer mini-site at disneyland.com/carsland, where you can explore everything in this all-new land.
Clients entering Cars Land will feel like they’re walking into the Disney•Pixar “Cars” movie, because Radiator Springs has been brought to life. For flat-out fun, buckle up at Radiator Springs Racers, where they’ll race head-to-head through the spectacular Ornament Valley. Then, they can hitch a ride for some square-dancing hijinks on Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree, or hop on Luigi’s Flying Tires, where they’ll literally float on air on an oversized flying tire. And once the sun goes down, there’s a magical transformation as the streets of Radiator Springs come alive with music and a glorious neon glow.
Cars Land is a major addition Disney California Adventure Park, but it’s not the only part of the five-year, billion-dollar Disneyland Resort expansion that will open in June. The park’s main entrance has been completely re-imagined into Buena Vista Street, recreating the atmosphere Walt Disney experienced upon first arriving to Los Angeles in the 1920s. Clients can ride the Red Car Trolley to the Carthay Circle Theatre – a recreation of the original theatre where “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” premiered in 1937, and home to the park’s new signature restaurant and lounge.
Beyond Disney California Adventure Park, Clients can enjoy new shopping locations in the Downtown Disney® District, like Wonderground Gallery; updates to Disneyland Park favorites like the Matterhorn Bobsleds and the classic Carnation Café; and the new accommodations and amenities of the completely re-imagined Disneyland Hotel.
