    Never Before Seen Photos From Inside Carsland

    Burgower1994 posted this wonderful link in the DCA Project Tracker and I thought it would be great to share it here. Never Before Seen Photos From Inside Cars Land | Disneyland News Today

    Some amazing new pictures of Carsland and one of BVS. That first picture...just wow...jaw dropping. I have a hunch that these pictures will soon be appearing in a Disney Parks Blog article but still awesome to see now. Enjoy!

    Thanks for sharing SocalFan, I agree the first picture of the racer going over the bridge took my breath away and made me really excited for summer to come. What would be awesome if that was a area where they can take a on-ride photo of your race because I wonder for sure buy one if it looked like that.

    Those pictures were scanned in from today's new issue of The Disneyland Line (employee newsletter free for the taking at all CM entry gates).

    The Cars Land stuff looks impressive for the most part, but that Flo's V8 Cafe sign looks too big and out of scale to me. Are they trying to push the food locations in Cars Land with mega-neon signs to minimize the long waits at Attractions and increase sales?

    Thought the same thing.
    Guess I'll have to wait and see it in person.

    I didn't see Flo's sign in the linked update but do you mean this one

    Idk, to me it looks just like the one in the movie and about the same relative size of neon signs I've seen personally along Route 66. Maybe the perspective of this angle is making it look larger...another pic from MFW shows it's not much taller than the spark plug overhangs right next to it. Like I said, seems normal to me and just like the movie...looks really great with those mountains in the background. Neon signs all along Route 66 were big and flashy, it's part of the kitsch. I highly doubt they are trying to push any food location with large neon signs...it's just like how it was in the movie Cars and reminiscent of large neon signs up and down the old Route 66 (many still exist on parts of the old road even here locally in the Southland).

    Found the concept art for Flo's, again, the sign doesn't any larger than it was planned to be.

    I thought the same...that it was pretty spot on for Route 66 signage.

    Is the 3rd pic the maintenance area? It looks like its got a work area below, like jiffy lube (probably much better service of course).

    Re: Never Before Seen Photos From Inside Carsland

    After seeing all the construction photos every week I was kinda "blah" but these pictures have really got me excited, much more than I was before. I'm pretty stoked now, my son loves Cars, he's going to be in paradise being inside Carsland, like he's really in the movie. The only thing is I'm still not excited for Luigis or Maters rides though. But the land looks amazing. Can't wait till we closer to Summer and the night time lighting testing begins, those pictures will be awesome.
