Cars Land at Disney California Adventure Theme Park
Cars Land is the newest themed area situated in Disney California Adventure at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Ca. This large expansion of the park, which opened in the summer of 2012, includes three rides, the extremely popular and cute Radiator Spring Racers, the playful Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree, and Luigi’s Flying Tires.
They have also added in shops and restaurants all located in a replica of the fictional town Radiator Springs from the Disney-Pixar movie, “Cars”. My favorite eatery is the Cozy Cone Motel, which is a counter-service café offering cone themed snack foods and beverages.
The backdrop to Cars Land is absolutely amazing. You will have to see and experience Ornamental Valley Range for yourself to appreciate all of it’s immense beauty. Take a stroll through the rock work tunnel from Pacific Wharf at night to see the Valley Range lit up at night. You won’t want to be caught without your camera! Take a look:
Cadillac Range Mountains
The towering Cadillac Range mountains serve as a majestic backdrop for Radiator Springs Racers. Car aficionados will notice that the 6 mountain peaks resemble the tail fins of classic Cadillac models from 1957 to 1962. The mountains are inspired by the iconic Cadillac Ranch public art installation created by Ant Farm. Cadillac Ranch is located along Route 66 near Amarillo, Texas.
In Cars Land, discover how Disney and Pixar stories and characters are brought to life through amazing attractions,entertainment and dining!
Be sure to visit the other recently added area, Buena Vista Street that captures the spirit of Los Angeles from 1923.
