    Love the article with all the photos! Can wait to see everything in person and maybe try out some of those Monte Cristo Bites as well. Also, it’d be really cool if they sold those ornaments that are on the tree at Ramone’s, I’d totally buy them.

    Thanks for a great update.

    My favorite point in the article:
    “In true Cars Land fashion, many questions are raised by the land’s holiday overlay — how exactly do the cars decorate, for example… and most importantly — why do they decorate with car parts? Isn’t that kind of… weird?”

    Not weird, but definitely morbid. Nothing like hanging lungs out as garland…

    Great update! So excited to check out the holiday decor in a few weeks.
