The Disneyland Resort marked a milestone Friday in the expansion of Disney California Adventure — by erecting the top peak of Cars Land. The 12-acre Cars Land, set to open in 2012, is the largest portion of Disney’s $1-billion expansion of the theme park.

Radiator Springs Racers looks eerily familiar....not that I don't think highly of Test Track... ;)

A CARS sequel? In theaters next year? I'm a Pixar fan and I didn't hear about that....

The layout looks really good for this area - but alas I wish they had done it at Magic Kingdom - I rarely get to Anaheim :-(

Another DCA tidbit for those that don't know...Maliboomer has been completely removed (as of a few days ago). The skyline looks much, much better without that S&S eyesore.

I'm looking forward to the film more than the 'land' if I'm honest.


Nothing to see here. Move along.

This actually makes me want to get out to the west coast more than ever; my 4-year-old son would LOVE this (and so would I). I'll make a prediction and say that this new land will be a catalyst to the success of DCA.

I agree. I see a lot of GP comments on the newspaper forums talking about not having anything to do at DCA, not realizing that they have added some awesome stuff, but once Mermaid, Carsland, and the rest is completed, I think people will love it.

My 4 year-old's nuts for Cars, as well. We went to WDW a couple of months ago, but probably would have done California if this was complete. The difference in cost was negligible. At the time, Southwest was flying from Pittsburgh to Orlando for $49 and to LAX for $89.

I think everyone should come to California next year to ride Wind Seeker! Oh wait, I guess you can stay home for that. ;)

Nah, I still have to travel if I want to seek some wind. And man I hope Carowinds gets a thrill ride before they put one of those in (Not that I mind us getting one, but we need some thrilling flat rides BAD!).

Give it a couple years. I'm sure a Windseeker will come to a theme park near you.

Now that GM's Test Track sponsorship is gone, I wonder if Disney would dare to tweak and retheme any of that attraction to Cars? Would that be an out of place attraction for Epcot? I dunno. Nemo and Friends fit in pretty well over at the Living Seas.

I was going off of my memory of news articles posted here and around the internet about a year ago. A quick internet search brings up a bunch of stories about GM's contract being up. If there's a news article about the contract being renewed, it is lost in the sea of articles dooming the agreement.

That's not to say GM isn't currently sponsoring though. My last visit to Epcot was 3yrs. ago. More recent visitors would know more than me. Like I said, I'm just going off what I read way back. As always in the World of Disney, things change.

Can't wait to check this park out again. However, it will not be untill they are done with all the work going on.When I was there, it was a maze of construction walls.


what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.
Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.

Im pretty sure that a Cars retheme of Test Track would make no thematic sense in Epcot at all, so I doubt they do that.
