    Lightbulb Will Cars Land have a tribute to Paul Newman?

    Paul Newman was one of our finest actors and a great humanitarian and "Cars" was his last performance. There should be some sort of tribute to him in Cars Land, something subtle.

    There should be a sticky thread called "This Day in Disney History." The company has a long history and this would be a good way to acknowledge it. Walt was born 112 years ago; that's quite a chunk of American history and culture.

    Hopefully from Butch and Sundance.

My voice shall be heard from this wilderness and I shall be delivered from this fetid and festering sewer."

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong
    but the only attraction (even in the "lands"---besides MS USA)
    that has a tribute to somene is Frank Wells (not even Walt wanted a statue of himself in the park). If there is something out there, then I stand corrected.

    I agree Numan was great
    but we also had other great actors (and people who did the voices for the rides) who don't have a tribute.
    If Disney was to start this, I think they'd be opening a big old can of worms.

    Disney does small sublte tributes to old attractions /Parking lots that made room for a new attraction.

    well this land takes place between the two car movies so docs place will be there. so kinda a tribute
    Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long. We keep
    moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things... and
    curiosity keeps leading us down new paths. - Walt Disney

    So all of those names on the windows along Main Street and other various places in the park aren't tributes?

    Including Harper Goff's window in Adventureland and the dry dock next to the Haunted Mansion having numerous references to Admiral Joe Fowler.

    Plus John Hench's "hatch" in the Space Mountain queue and Fess Parker's window in Frontierland.

    I stated besides Main Street.

    Thanks for the Adventureland, Frontier and Space Mountain ones.


    Again, we are talking about people who do voice over for movies.
    I think he's a great man, but could you imagine Disney putting a tribute to everyone who ever voiced a cartoon show or film.

    Re: Will Cars Land have a tribute to Paul Newman?

    I was thinking about a door in City Hall with the name, "Mayor Doc Hudson." Also, he's the only member of the original cast who's died since the movie premiered. Other, still-living characters already have their names on buildings, like Mater and Flo and Luigi and Guido. I wasn't thinking about a statue or anything as obvious as that.

    The voice of Fillmore died as well I thought...

    And Doc Hudson's place from the movie will be a part of the land I believe as an extension of Flo's V8 Cafe

    You are correct. George Carlin, the voice of Fillmore, died just a a few months before Paul Newman in 2008.
