Mater Looks for Lightning McQueen at Walt Disney World Resort

Somehow, best friends have a way of always finding each other. One day, Mater, everyone’s favorite tow truck from the Disney•Pixar films “Cars” and “Cars 2,” went on a search at Walt Disney World Resort for his best friend Lightning McQueen.

With a little dose of Disney magic (and some help from RIDEMAKERZ at the Downtown Disney Area), Mater went on a search for his pal. Since Lightning McQueen is now featured in the Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, he knew exactly where to look.

Our friends at RIDEMAKERZ built a tiny, radio-controlled version of the lovable truck and sent him on his way. Mater’s journey began at the former RIDEMAKERZ location at Downtown Disney West Side. The supercharged experience recently moved to its new home at Downtown Disney Marketplace, inside the Team Mickey Athletic Club store.

Already a veteran of world travel from his international adventures in “Cars 2,” Mater is well-equipped to take a drive across Walt Disney World Resort property. Take a ride with Mater and see what kind of adventure the fun-loving tow truck finds along the way.

Take a look at more “Cars” and “Cars 2” fun at Disney Parks:


  • That must have been really fun to film!

  • My 5 year old son had a blast making his Radiator Spring McQueen at RiderMakerz last month on his birthday! The staff was awesome and made him feel super special and he loved building his car. While its not the cheapest thing, it was an awesome experience and would do it over again!

  • I loved that video sooo much! It was fun to see Hollywood Studios from a car point a view.
