Cars Land at Disney California Adventure Park

You’ve been asking for a Cars Land meet-up, and now is your chance to be among the first guests to see Cars Land for yourself at our next Disney Parks Blog meet-up! Come with us as the lead Imagineers on Cars Land take 66 participants (see what we did there?) for a walking tour of Cars Land at Disney California Adventure park on Tuesday, May 29.

Since Cars Land is still being polished up for its grand opening next month, we must keep our meet-up group very small. Thirty-three (33) participants will be invited, each with one (1) guest, to join us. No photography or video recording will be allowed inside Cars Land.* Since we’re visiting a working construction site, each participant and guest must check all electronic devices (including, but not limited to, cameras, phones and recording devices) with security staff who will be joining us for this event. Guests who choose not to check all of their electronic devices with security staff prior to entering Cars Land will not be able to participate in the event. This event is intended for Disney Parks Blog readers to see Cars Land. No members of the news media will be invited or allowed to attend.

Check-in for the event will begin at 5 p.m., and all participants and guests must be checked in no later than 5:30 p.m. All participants will be escorted into Cars Land for the tour, which will last approximately 45 minutes. During this exclusive tour, participants will be able to view Cars Land attractions but will not have the opportunity to ride. After the tour concludes, meet-up participants will be invited to spend the rest of the evening at Disney California Adventure park and enjoy the 9 p.m. showing of “World of Color” as our guests in a reserved viewing section. Park admission is not required to attend the event, but participants will be responsible for their own parking fees.

Space for the event is very limited and you must RSVP to meetups@disney.go.com, following these directions carefully:

  • All participants who RSVP for the event must be 18 years or older, but guests do not need to be 18. Upon receiving the email confirming your attendance, you will be required to reply with the name of your guest. Meet-up invitations are non-transferrable.
  • Valid RSVPs must include: 1) “Cars Land Meet-Up RSVP” in the subject line and 2) your name, email address and phone number in the body of the email. All confirmed RSVPs will be for the person who responds plus one guest. Incomplete RSVPs will not be accepted.
  • Valid photo I.D. will be required at check-in, and all participants and guests must agree to check all electronic devices with security staff at the event.

Entrants whose valid RSVPs are accepted will be sent an email to confirm their attendance for the event on Tuesday, May 29, 2012. All accepted participants must reply to the confirmation email with the name of their guest.

I will give an update at the top of this post when capacity has been reached. Please note the event is subject to change or cancellation without notice.

Get your RSVP in now and be among the first guests inside Cars Land with the Disney Parks Blog!

*Any participants found to be photographing or otherwise recording during this event will be escorted off the Disneyland Resort premises and may be precluded from participation in any future events.

36

Tanya on May 16th, 2012 at 8:04 pm

Bummer. I haven’t gotten a email =( I sent in my email at 3:10 PST.

37

Corrine from CA on May 16th, 2012 at 8:06 pm

I got my accepted email, but I was wondering about guests under 3 years old?

38

Kimberly on May 16th, 2012 at 8:14 pm

Sent mine at 3:06 but didn’t get an email…people are quick. Why won’t there be a list posted? Will you send second emails if winners haven’t replied?

39

Elizabeth on May 16th, 2012 at 8:18 pm

Did anyone receive an email? I know it says they were sent, but all is quiet still- so I guess I’ll keep a bit of hope until someone confirms that they got one. Good luck, y’all.

40

Taylor from CA on May 16th, 2012 at 8:19 pm

No email… :( Wonder how fast it filled up? I sent my RSVP at 3:06 PST (2 min after the announcement was made) and didn’t get chosen. Maybe next time.

41

Andrew on May 16th, 2012 at 8:30 pm

I GOT IN!!!!!!! Will I get a reply after I sent in my name and my guests name or do I just assume that we are registered?

 

Erin Glover on May 17th, 2012 at 1:25 pm

Glad you’ll be able to join us, Andrew! Once you respond to the confirmation email with the name of your guest, you will receive a reply from us. Then you’re all set. See you May 29!

42

Brittany on May 16th, 2012 at 9:41 pm

I sent my email at 3:16 PM and didn’t make the cut. The post went up at 3. So I guess they got filled up pretty fast. Congratulations to those who get to go!

43

Pamela on May 16th, 2012 at 10:02 pm

CONGRATS to the lucky chosen participants! :) I hope DCA creates a few extra spaces to allow more of us this great opportunity. ;)

44

Cheryl from CA on May 16th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

If anyone has received “the email” , can you pleas post. Does anyone know if it was a first come or lottery?
Just want to know.

 

Erin Glover on May 17th, 2012 at 1:26 pm

Cheryl – RSVPs were accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

45

shawna on May 16th, 2012 at 11:59 pm

No email so I guess I didn’t get picked. :(

46

Irene from CA on May 17th, 2012 at 9:44 am

I never even knew about this until I got my Disney Park Blog email update this morning. I guess I don’t understand why sometimes Disney Parks Blog comes up in Facebook and other times, it doesn’t.

 

Erin Glover on May 17th, 2012 at 1:27 pm

Irene – We also post on our Disney Parks Blog Facebook page: Facebook.com/DisneyParksBlog. So check us out there as well.

47

NAOMI on May 17th, 2012 at 10:47 am

Like @Irene, I didn’t find out about the opportunity until the Disney Blog e-mail appeared in my mailbox this morning. I missed out another great offer so I thought subscribing so I get daily notices would keep me informed, but that didn’t work :(

I’ve all of the recent Blog e-mails but don’t anything about this Cats Land meet-up. When did the original message from @Erin go out? I’m confused . . .

 

Erin Glover on May 17th, 2012 at 1:29 pm

Naomi – You can also get updates from us on our Disney Parks Blog Facebook page (Facebook.com/DisneyParksBlog) and on Twitter at Twitter.com/Disneyland (@Disneyland).

Agnes from CA on May 17th, 2012 at 11:13 am

I never knew about this until I got my email update this morning either….Bummer :-(

April on May 17th, 2012 at 11:25 am

The one day I didn’t check the Disney Parks Blog! Ugh! And I knew there had to be a meet-up for Cars Land coming up. I’ve been to the World of Color and Electronica Meet-ups and also won (2) $99 So Cal tickets all through Disney Parks Blog. Thank you to all who make these events possible and congrats to those of you who got the e-mail. I LOVE DISNEY!!!!!

Brittany on May 17th, 2012 at 11:48 am

@Irene, @Naomi, and @Agnes- Try following @Disneyland on Twitter. They posted a heads up a few hours ahead of time yesterday to look out for a new blog post announcing the meetup at 3PM.
