We shared big news this week on the Disney Parks Blog. The grand opening of Cars Land, Buena Vista Street and Carthay Circle Theatre will take place on June 15, 2012. Tom Staggs, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, broke the news after a hard-hat tour of Buena Vista Street and Cars Land with Disney President and CEO Bob Iger.
