Why Was Herbie Parked in Magic Kingdom Park?

posted on June 25th, 2012 by Gary Buchanan, Social Media Managing Editor

It’s not unusual to see famous Disney characters in Magic Kingdom Park. But why did Herbie park himself on Main Street, U.S.A., one morning last week?

Curious? Tune in tomorrow to the Disney Parks Blog for the answer.

Until then, feel free to take a spin of the tires with your own guess in the comments. One hint: the answer has a lot to do with “love.”

I am guessing it is part of a wedding at Magic Kingdom.

Maybe here there advertising that all of his movies are going to be rereleased on Blueray and digital download?


Gerry on June 25th, 2012 at 4:18 pm

He’s obviously jealous of all the attention the “folks” at Cars Land are getting.

I’m guessing he wants a hot dog at Casey’s Corner (or there’s a new movie on the way).


Joel from FL on June 25th, 2012 at 4:26 pm

My guess is that “The Love Bug”, originally released in 1968, was digitally remastered and going to be re-released on DVD and Blu-Ray soon.

There’s going to be a new Herbie movie??? PLEASE!!??!!


Greg on June 25th, 2012 at 5:21 pm

I am thinking Herbie is going to be a part of the parade each day. That car knows how to party!


Bill on June 25th, 2012 at 5:34 pm

I think Herbie needs to take a drive on the mother road and visit DCA. It would be absolutely fantastic to to see Herbie have a chat with Lighting and/or Mater… He could even visit his cousin Filmore…

What the…?????
I work near Main Street and I never saw him!!! UGH!!!
And I LOVE Herbie!!


Sandra on June 25th, 2012 at 5:53 pm

He’s in the wrong park! He’s looking for Duffy Bear dressed in his Cars outfit to be his new driver!


Dakota on June 25th, 2012 at 7:37 pm

A new Movie!?!?!.. Or maybe.. is he reclaiming his rightful place in Light, Motors, Action!?


Carla on June 25th, 2012 at 7:41 pm

Last time we saw Herbie was July 2007 in Hollywood Studios.


Helen on June 25th, 2012 at 8:00 pm

The movie ”Herbie goes Bananas” came out today in 1980, that’s why herbie was there?


Maryanne on June 25th, 2012 at 10:16 pm

To celebrate the anniversary of the release of Herbie Goes Bananas!! :)


Mark on June 25th, 2012 at 10:36 pm

He was craving a Dole Whip.


Alain on June 26th, 2012 at 8:49 am

Tell me he’s not an Overtaker! Or maybe the Overtakers stranded him there overnight…


Diane on June 26th, 2012 at 9:09 am

Herbie has a deep love for meeting and greeting all his fans


Kathy on June 26th, 2012 at 9:49 am

not unusual to see him in the MK, after 27 years I’ve never seen him or a pic of him in the park


Barbara on June 26th, 2012 at 10:20 am

Because of the “love bug” epidemic that comes to Orlando every May and June LOL!!


Laura on June 26th, 2012 at 11:01 am

When will we find out the answer???


Sean on June 26th, 2012 at 11:10 am

Ohhh the pain, how long do we have to wait??? :)


James from East Sussex on June 26th, 2012 at 12:11 pm

Love, love me do!


Denise on June 26th, 2012 at 12:46 pm

Herbie must be attending a magical wedding ceremony, and patiently waiting to drive the “just married” couple to their “happily ever after!”


MARITZA on June 26th, 2012 at 1:37 pm

Cuz is coming in DVD and blueray and there might be the cartoon or series back on TV? PLEEEEAAASE


Ryan on June 26th, 2012 at 5:35 pm

I think that it is because Herbie fans were upset that in the Lights Motors Action Herbie was replaced by Lightning Mcqueen.So Disney being the great company that they are decided to put him in Magic Kingdom.


Craig on June 26th, 2012 at 9:13 pm

Ocho was at the MK to celebrate the arrival of Ochocinco joining the Miami Dolphins football team! That’s it right !
