Lightning McQueen made his Hollywood Studios debut yesterday (March 31st) with Disney’s new attraction, Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy. The new attraction, on Sunset Blvd at Hollywood Studios is a 10 minute long, interactive performance. It will give visitors a chance to get up close with Lightning McQueen himself. You will also get a chance to see Mater, Cruz Ramirez, Sally and some other cars from the film on screen during the show. Visitors will also have the opportunity to meet and greet Cruz Ramirez outside of the theater in the courtyard.
Theme park insider provided us with this first look of the attraction:
Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy is the first of many new attractions coming this year to Hollywood Studios.
This attraction in particular, I think is perfect for preschoolers and smaller Disney visitors. It is indoors, which is a perfect break from the heat. It may even be a good pit stop for breastfeeding mamas, to get out of the heat and feed the babies. My boys are going to love getting up close and personal with McQueen himself. Ka-Chow!
Also on Cars courtyard, Lightning McQueen’s Pit Crew will make an appearance several times a day to party with DJ who traveled Route 66 all the way to Hollywood Studios. If you’re into dancing, this is the ultimate dance party on wheels. I followed along on twitter to check out some of the guest reactions on opening day.
