With so much said, seen and heard about everything coming to Disney California Adventure, you’d think it would be difficult to be mesmerized by anything you could come upon during your first visit. But instead Cars Land delivers an experience that leaps beyond what most Disney attractions could ever hope to offer in immersion by themselves with the use of an entire land devoted to one theme, one idea, Cars! What you find is amazement at every turn because every vista is more impressive than the last. What your hear is pleasing, amusing and down-right fun tunes created just for Cars Land. And what you’ll most undoubtedly say is nothing. Well at least for a few seconds as your mind catches up to your smile and your words finally reach you. From there words will follow and they will all mean the same thing despite their many variations. They will all mean, “I’ve never seen anything like this.” That is Cars Land and if you know anything about Da Mouse, you know that we are about to show you every special nook and detail we can find. So join us and speed along into adventure.
What an incredible sight and a deep sense of anticipation for the amazing preview opportunity that lies before us on this day…
The Annual Passholder and D23 crowd makes its way through to the Pacific Wharf entrance into Cars Land.
At first sight you know you are witnessing something that is like nothing else you’ve seen before.
Few words can describe how breathtaking this all is…
Ornament Valley looks impressive by itself but it is the scale of this rock work (along with the forced perspective) that really takes one aback.
At Da Mouse we try to take exceptional photos that tell the story and show the magic of Disney Parks but in Cars Land there are just so many sights that rise to that level without any fancy camerawork necessary.
The first sign of Mater as we walk in, literally 😉
At first glance it is difficult to take in all the detail but look at the amazing vegetation.
Good ol’ Stanley
As if we weren’t excited enough for this attraction, this sight is just great. It has a National Park feel to it mixed with the Neon signs, just incredible. Too bad we’ll be riding this a bit later because it was temporarily not in operation at this point in the morning.
So onto the dance of the tires!
Looking out onto Radiator Springs from Luigi’s…
Italian tires manufactured by your favorite Italian pasta 🙂
Of course Fettuccini 🙂
If you love ‘Cars’ than you’ll certainly love all the detail inside of Luigi’s. These posters are just sweet.
These tire plates on the connecting pieces of the queue line poles are a small detail but we liked them very much.
Can I have four of your Fettuccini Alfredo?
Each room of the queue has its own distinctive look and feel.
Well tires don’t just change themselves.
Looking out we can see the line for Radiator Springs Racers which we just left momentarily. This first queue room has some neat views out onto the town of Radiator Springs.
