Not sure where these came from, as I got them from a friend of a friend. But when I went they asked people not to take photos. Big signs said do not share on social media.
Visited Buena Vista Street, which I thought looked sharp. The Starbucks there was really really busy - apparently this store is a huge hit!
The entrance to Carsland is breathtaking - under a huge rock arch. Looks rural once you enter, although you do see the Racers from the ride going around. The downtown area of Radiator Springs looks just. like. the movie. Seriously. Such great details here.
The cue of Radiator Springs Racers takes you through a roadside attraction with a collection of radiator caps, and the same for oil bottles (the whole building is made out of cement and embedded glass bottles), fountains, etc.
Radiator Springs Racers I loved. Was not expecting all the dark ride stuff, and some of that was hit or miss, but the ride itself start to finish is SO impressive. They really have a winner with this one. Saw them filming a commercial with a modified car with lighting from the bottom up on the faces of a family, and cameras mounted in the backseat.
Couldn't wait to go again - but it broke down three times, 10 mins to 38 mins stopped, and that kept me from re-entering the long line.
The one restroom in Cars Land was clean and nice, even if a little hard to find.
Had a full meal (wine, entree, dessert) in Flo's V8, and love the details in here. The gold records on the wall:
