Cruising at Night with Lightning McQueen and Mater in Cars Land at Disney California Adventure Park

As night fell in Cars Land at Disney California Adventure park, I followed Mater and Lightning McQueen back to the center of town to check out the neon lighting up Route 66.

Before we wrapped up our little road trip, you know we had to get a shot over at Flo’s V8 Café. I really like the way the neon over at Flo’s reflects off McQueen’s hood.

What a great time I had spending the day with these two. Don’t forget, beginning June 15, you can meet Lightning and Mater over at the Cozy Cone Motel in Cars Land.

Great pictures! I love Mater’s headlight! Any chance we could get a “ka-chow” from McQueen?

Dear Mr. Hiffmeyer,

What a great job you have! Cars Land looks incredible. We visited the Disneyland Resort through New Year’s and were greatly teased seeing the final stages of construction. The area looked incredible then, I can only imagine now.

We plan on returning to Disneyland to experience the thrills of Cars Land.
Thank you for sharing these wonderful pictures!
