I’ve loved watching Radiator Springs developing from nothing. I think it shouldn’t be in Disney World. I like the fact that each resort has its own special attractions to, you know, attract guests over there. If every resort had all the same attractions I would never go to Disney World, but I want to ride Expedition Everest.

Look so cool!!! Is there an approximate date of when it will open? We want to come in June but I will be sad if we miss it by a week or two!

It is so exciting to see cars Land as it developes! My family is so excited to see it. We moved our Disneyland trip from April to October this year so we can enjoy Cars Land!

Alex–
I agree, each resort needs its own unique attractions. :)

Plus, if people are ever going to take California Adventure seriously, it needs to have unique attractions that cannot be found anywhere else.

This is not just an attraction, it´s a work of art!
It´s the mariage between a blockbuster animation movie and state of the art attraction with a layer of awesomeness made by the best artists.
I would love to see this in Disney World.

What is the specific date the Cars attraction is supposed to be open? Specific opening date for The Little Mermaid attraction?

I think that this is the best they have done yet with a pixar movie! I can’t wait! And I am so glad its only in CA because Disney World should not get everything. They all ready have so much that CA will never have. =]

Would love to know exact date cars land opens so we can book vacation

23

Shaunnon from GA on January 7th, 2012 at 4:03 am

A question… are you using real ‘blacktop’ for the main street? That usually isn’t a good choice for a theme park environment, due to the heat and smell issues.

24

Karen from CA on January 7th, 2012 at 3:17 pm

Can’t Wait!!!

25

Clarissa from CA on January 7th, 2012 at 10:42 pm

AHHHHH! BUT WHEN’S IT OPENING??? (LOL)

Gage on January 9th, 2012 at 6:13 pm

I wish this was at Disney World. I’m going there in June.

Sheri on January 9th, 2012 at 9:20 pm

I am excited for the new attraction to open. I saw the progress in Dec. The construction did make it scary to maneuver in CA. The crowds were record breaking and we weren’t able to get to most areas of the park. When will the work be finished and will the bridge be back? I miss it…it says California!

elizabeth on January 10th, 2012 at 9:39 pm

We want to visit in June but are waiting to book our trip until a hard opening date is announced (my nephew is a Cars fantatic). If you don’t have a hard opening date you can announce yet, can you let us know when you will announce the opening date?

Fred from CA on January 10th, 2012 at 11:27 pm

Sheri–
There will be a bridge, but it won’t be the Golden Gate Bridge anymore. Instead, it will be a replica of the Glendale-Hyperion Bridge from Los Angeles.

Disney has not announced an exact date, but everything is supposed to be finished by this summer.

Daniel on January 10th, 2012 at 11:48 pm

Can’t wait till Sept. Was at CA in Aug ’10 when construction was early and started planning vac w/grandson then. The detail is so amazing, hats off to the artist’s who make this happen. Hope the bridge stays but heard rumors CA is getting new entrance.
