It’s finally happening!! Lightning McQueen is coming INSIDE Disney World.
WOOOO Happy Dance.
My Kids are Huge Fans of the “Cars” Franchise- just like many other kids around the world. Lightning McQueen and now, Cruz Ramirez, are so fun and relatable.
That’s why I’m Extra Excited to see them in 2019!
So where is all this happening at? Well, originally you could find Lightning ONLY at Art of Animation- in themed rooms. Lame right?
Kinda. I mean, the pool is themed like the Cozy Cone. Plus, there are larger than life replicas of some of our favorite characters like Tow Mater, Luigi and Sallie. So it’s fun, but it really lacks the Disney Magic.
We wanted something more!
Considering that DisneyLand has this whole experience geared around the Cars Franchise and they even have a special halloween show that is Cars themed- I was really feeling like we were missing out!
But no longer! Lighting is coming to Disney World and He’s bringing Cruz and Mater!
Check out the details and new photos for Lighting at Disney
Obviously you are here to learn the details. Like The Who, what, when and where!
Good thing I have the inside scoop because I’ve taken my kids to see Lightning like 15 times now.
Lighting is going to be at the most logical place- Hollywood Studios!
This new show is aptly called, Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy, and it open now!
You get to meet some of the cars characters before you enter, and they talk to you! Plus, its a photopass location!
Then you go into the show- Now I’m not going to spoil the details for you- BUT it is very unique! (and oh so cute!)
Here’s a picture of my kids waiting for the show to start. It’s the perfect place to go for anyone in love with Cars (or just wanting to get some A/c)
Is this a fun show for people with ASD/SPD?
This show is different- but not in a bad way. It’s not like ‘its a bug’ at Animal Kingdom or Soarin at Epcot. There are no weird sensory things blowing on you or swooping at you.
There are lights, but the noises are pretty mellow- and there is some action but it’s a slow build.
Overall, it’s one of our favorite places to take our kids- and it’s one of the only attractions that has never caused any sort of meltdown or sensory overload. We love seeing Lightning and sometimes we’ll do the ride a few times in a row because it’s calm yet entertaining!
Are you excited for the New Car’s attraction? We love it! Drop a comment or send me an email so we can chat about this latest development!
