Look Who’s Rolling into Cars Land June 15 at Disney California Adventure Park

We recently told you about some of the shows and characters coming to Buena Vista Street at Disney California Adventure park. Well, that was just the beginning! When Cars Land opens June 15, the tiny town of Radiator Springs will also be teeming with atmosphere entertainment inspired by the Disney•Pixar film, “Cars.”


Big and red on the outside, gentle and good-natured on the inside, Red the Fire Truck shows up with his sirens blaring and his bell ringing, heading to meet up with his good buddy, a Volunteer Firefighter. The Firefighter lets everyone know the flowers in the area need watering. It’s “Red to the Rescue,” but each time the Firefighter attempts to use Red’s hose, it backfires on him! In all the fun, the plants manage to get wet, and you might too!


Bringing a completely different kind of beat to the street is “DJ’s Dance & Drive.” DJ, the ultimate party car, rolls into town with his giant speakers, built-in disc changer and his very own dance party, led by a girl named Spinner. This gang stops traffic everywhere they go, creating a spontaneous, interactive dance party. Spinner and the crew teach us moves like the Overdrive, the Reverse and the Hairpin Turn, while DJ calls up the hits, from “Life in the Fast Lane” to “Car Wash.” DJ’s going to shift Cars Land into high gear!

Cruise on down to Cars Land this summer at Disney California Adventure park. The residents there will be glad you rolled into town!

  • cool disney has been doing a great job and will continue in the future. good job guys keep up the good work!!!

  • Will there be any information soon about how exactly it is going to work for the public Cars Land opening? I want to make sure I’m there early enough for the opening 🙂
    Otherwise, thanks for the current updates at least!

  • I would also like to know if there will be a special preview for Annual Passholders

  • Will there be a special preview day for Passholders as has been done in the past for new attractions?

  • Is there going to be an AP sneak peek for Carsland? I’ve heard that they may have already picked people for this. I don’t seem to catch these specials, are they invitation only? Are they posted in the AP section on the official Disneyland site?

  • This isn’t the same Red we saw during the D23 Expo is it? That one was for Radiator Springs Racers, wasn’t it. Think both DJ and Red will be a big hit with Disney fans.

  • Shame thats my birthday and i know it will be packed so i will come to cars land later on. The park will be closed June 14..

  • Wow, we are coming down from Canada to be there opening day. we so can not wait. Looks like Disney is going to be out doing themselves again.

    Counting the days now 🙂

  • OMG i cant wait for this there’s alot of things happening this summer at disneyland resort i am going to party this summer for my Birthday yay what times are the shows ?

    • Happy Birthday (in advance), Brett! It’s definitely going to be exciting this summer at the Disneyland Resort. As for exact performance times for each of these shows, those details are still being worked out. Just consult the in-park show times guide on the day of your visit.

  • Wow! Sounds awesome!

    I think its great that Cars Land will have some atmosphere entertainment, and it will be really cool to see Red and DJ out in the street.
    For the longest time, I assumed that we would only see characters in the Radiator Springs Racers ride. Disney is really pulling out all the stops for California Adventure’s relaunch.
