Disney’s California Adventure is welcoming their newest addition to the park during Summer 2012: Carsland!
I have to say I’m really excited in seeing this section of the park coming to life considering its a much needed addition to a park that most would consider the least designed and themed park by Disney Imagineers.
A few years ago, Imagineers tried to recover from their flop and brought some Disney magic to DCA by revamping some of the park. Some of these changes included adding Carnival style games with Pixar characters, Classic old-fashioned Character themed Ferris Wheel, and adding a Silly Symphonies themed Flying Chairs ride. That plus the World of Color show has brought a much needed Disney Touch this park was crying for.
Carsland to me seems like the cherry on top and a step in the right direction for Disney Imagineering: Expanding on Storylines & Characters where Visitors can immerse into Magical stories brought to life through rides and attractions creating an unforgettable experience.
Below is a list of the upcoming attractions part of Carsland:
Radiaor Springs Racers
Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree
Luigi’s Flying Tires
Recently, New concept art was released as well as some shots of the track for the New Radiator Springs Racers ride.
Seeing as I’m an Epcot Regular up in Orlando, FL, It seems to me like this ride will be similar in style to that of Test Track. Similar Ride Vehicles & Track, Different Theme.
Below is a few shots taken of the track and John Lasseter (Pixar Genius) testing the Vehicles out.
Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree seems like it ill become a Classic Family Favorite similar to Magic Kingdom’s Spinning Tea Cups. To see a preview of the ride, Please Click Here for one of my previous posts including a ride video.
The last of the attractions hasn’t had much coverage but I did find some concept art and vehicle testing photos with John Lasseter (Again.. Pixar GOD).
Overall, I’m super excited to see what will come of this new area added to DCA. Not sure when I’ll get the chance to visit but I’m definitely looking forward to checking out Carsland!
What do you guys think? Excited to see Carsland?
