As we first told you back in February, Luigi – the most famous tire salesman in Cars Land – has temporarily closed his Casa della Tires to visit family in Italy. Today, I’m excited to tell you that he is returning with some special guests!

Luigi has invited all of his cugini (cousins) from his hometown of Carsoli, Italy, to visit his Casa della Tires. To help celebrate Race Day in Radiator Springs, they will demonstrate the dances of their village with Cars Land guests when the all-new Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters opens early next year.

POLL: Eat What You Want Day With Disney Parks Blog Authors

posted on May 11th, 2015 by Rachel Brent, Food & Beverage Marketing Communications Coordinator


What would you eat if you could eat anything you want from Disney Parks and Resorts? This is a question I asked a few Disney Parks Blog authors for Eat What You Want Day (which is my new favorite food holiday). Keep reading to find out the authors’ picks:

EWYW895361

Darcy Clark, Marketing Manager, Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World Resort
I chose the 32-ounce Dry Aged Tomahawk Rib Chop from The BOATHOUSE, the newest restaurant at Downtown Disney. The $115 cut is meant for two guests but I actually shared mine with two friends and Executive Chef Bob Getchell. On “Eat What You Want” Day (and any other special occasion!), this is the perfect splurge.

EWYW895362

Erin Glover, Social Media Director, Disneyland Resort
I’m so excited that Critter Country at Disneyland park is open again following its recent refurbishment, because it means I can enjoy my favorite lunch again … the Fried Green Tomato Sandwich at Hungry Bear Restaurant!

EWYW895364

Michelle Harker, Manager, Merchandise Marketing & Communications, Disneyland Resort
I chose a Mickey Pretzel – it’s something I remember since my first theme park visit. It’s a perfect treat to enjoy while walking through the park and even better dipped in cheese!

Disney Parks Blog Author Nate Rasmussen Meeting Olaf at Disney California Adventure Park Disney Parks Blog Author Nate Rasmussen Enjoying an Olaf Marshmallow Pop from Disney California Adventure Park

Nate Rasmussen, Archivist, Marketing Resource Center
I love food is ‘character’ themed in our parks – so fun. When I went to “Frozen Fun” at Disney California Adventure park a couple of weekends ago, I tried something new. I had an Olaf marshmallow pop and then got to meet Olaf.

EWYW895367

Pam Brandon, Disney Parks Food Writer
A beautiful plate of pristine sushi at California Grill – probably a crispy crab roll.

EWYW895368

Shawn Slater, Communications Manager, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Creative Entertainment
One of our favorite treats when visiting any Disney Park is the popcorn. The regular popcorn tastes great, but the unique flavors available in certain places make for a special treat. The Buffalo Blue Cheese Flavored Popcorn in Future World at Epcot is definitely one of my favorites, while my boys each have a preference for the cheddar and the sour cream and chive flavors available there. Whether it’s these at Epcot, honey-flavored popcorn at Tokyo Disneyland or dill pickle flavor from the Cozy Cone Motel at Disney California Adventure park, flavored popcorn is an indulgence we can’t resist!

EWYW895369

Tyler Slater, Public Relations Manager, Disney Destinations
I chose the Chinese Chicken Salad in a Sourdough Bread Bowl from Pacific Wharf Café. There is nothing like walking through Pacific Wharf at Disney California Adventure park and smelling freshly baked bread. Then, you add a healthy and delicious salad INSIDE it? Truly, a match made in heaven. (I always ask for extra dressing on the side for some “dipping” sauce for my bread.)

EWYW895370

And me? I chose a Dole Whip Float from Aloha Isle Refreshments in Magic Kingdom Park. Dole Whip has been my go-to for years, it makes me feel like a pineapple princess, and there’s something about enjoying it in Adventureland that makes it even more magical!

Let us know what you would choose to eat on Eat What You Want Day; vote for your pick in our poll below!

Steven gave us a first look at Disney Tails, a new line of pet products for dogs coming to Disney Parks this spring. I can’t wait to see my dog in one of these adorable collars!

Darcy brought us inside Chapel Hats, one of the new retails locations in Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World Resort, for a look at some of the fabulous fascinators available there.

First Look: New Oil Can Sippers Coming to Cars Land in Disney California Adventure Park

posted on May 8th, 2015 by Rachel Brent, Food & Beverage Marketing Communications Coordinator


Soon, you’ll be able to fuel up with these brand-new oil can sippers. You may be familiar with the Dinoco oil company from Disney•Pixar “Cars” (note the gas pumps and oil cans outside of Flo’s V8 Café). Look for these fun souvenir items when they “check in” at Cozy Cone Motel in Cars Land for the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration 24-hour event on May 22.

And if you’re a fan of the Cars Land cone sippers, be sure to pick one up before they drive off into the sunset to make way for the new oil can sipper.

New Cars Land Merchandise Debuts at Disney California Adventure Park

posted on April 16th, 2015 by Michelle Harker, Manager, Merchandise Marketing & Communications, Disneyland Resort


Are you running on empty when it comes to something new to wear? Then take a spin with me as we take a look at some of the new Cars Land inspired merchandise hitting the streets of Disney California Adventure park.

clldlr293847

When it came to the new look for the Cars Land logo merchandise, the teams took the term, ‘put some fire in it,’ quite literally. The flame details, along with the classic Cars Land logo on the adult and kids tees, hat and drinkware, adds heat to this red-hot collection. Not your speed? Gear for ladies and kids will have you racing to the finish line.

mgodlr281726

Cruising for something different? The Motorama Girls collection debuting soon will surely get you back to your ‘routes’ and looking sassy and classy for any day trip. Va-Va-Vroom!
mhodlr293847

This next item will get those wheels turning! Last but certainly not least … the new Mater novelty hat! I can attest that as we were photographing the hat, kids of all ages (those adults who stopped me know exactly who they are) were asking where and when they could get it. Can you ‘tow the line’ when it hits stores in the coming months?

Be sure to make Radiator Springs Curios, Ramone’s House of Body Art and Sarge’s Surplus Hut in Cars Land a stop on your next trip!

Which collection is your favorite?

A Unique Point of View: Radiator Springs Racers at Disney California Adventure Park

posted on April 8th, 2015 by Erin Glover, Social Media Director, Disneyland Resort


RSR37098451

Here’s a perspective most racers don’t get to see when they’re revving their engines at the start line on Radiator Springs Racers at Disney California Adventure park. Disneyland Chief Photographer Paul Hiffmeyer got a special, front-row seat right across from Luigi and Guido to get these shots.

I love the reflection of Radiator Springs’ two biggest racing fans in the windshield of the car in this photo …

RSR37098452

Any bets on which car won this race? But then again, we’re all winners when we make new friends, right?
