Cars Land at Disney California Adventure Park

You’ve been asking for a Cars Land meet-up, and now is your chance to be among the first guests to see Cars Land for yourself at our next Disney Parks Blog meet-up! Come with us as the lead Imagineers on Cars Land take 66 participants (see what we did there?) for a walking tour of Cars Land at Disney California Adventure park on Tuesday, May 29.

Since Cars Land is still being polished up for its grand opening next month, we must keep our meet-up group very small. Thirty-three (33) participants will be invited, each with one (1) guest, to join us. No photography or video recording will be allowed inside Cars Land.* Since we’re visiting a working construction site, each participant and guest must check all electronic devices (including, but not limited to, cameras, phones and recording devices) with security staff who will be joining us for this event. Guests who choose not to check all of their electronic devices with security staff prior to entering Cars Land will not be able to participate in the event. This event is intended for Disney Parks Blog readers to see Cars Land. No members of the news media will be invited or allowed to attend.

Check-in for the event will begin at 5 p.m., and all participants and guests must be checked in no later than 5:30 p.m. All participants will be escorted into Cars Land for the tour, which will last approximately 45 minutes. During this exclusive tour, participants will be able to view Cars Land attractions but will not have the opportunity to ride. After the tour concludes, meet-up participants will be invited to spend the rest of the evening at Disney California Adventure park and enjoy the 9 p.m. showing of “World of Color” as our guests in a reserved viewing section. Park admission is not required to attend the event, but participants will be responsible for their own parking fees.

Space for the event is very limited and you must RSVP to, following these directions carefully:

  • All participants who RSVP for the event must be 18 years or older, but guests do not need to be 18. Upon receiving the email confirming your attendance, you will be required to reply with the name of your guest. Meet-up invitations are non-transferrable.
  • Valid RSVPs must include: 1) “Cars Land Meet-Up RSVP” in the subject line and 2) your name, email address and phone number in the body of the email. All confirmed RSVPs will be for the person who responds plus one guest. Incomplete RSVPs will not be accepted.
  • Valid photo I.D. will be required at check-in, and all participants and guests must agree to check all electronic devices with security staff at the event.

Entrants whose valid RSVPs are accepted will be sent an email to confirm their attendance for the event on Tuesday, May 29, 2012. All accepted participants must reply to the confirmation email with the name of their guest.

I will give an update at the top of this post when capacity has been reached. Please note the event is subject to change or cancellation without notice.

Get your RSVP in now and be among the first guests inside Cars Land with the Disney Parks Blog!

*Any participants found to be photographing or otherwise recording during this event will be escorted off the Disneyland Resort premises and may be precluded from participation in any future events.


  • Darn, there is no deadline posted and we just started out premium pass yesterday. I guess well learn all the secrets of how to do Disney over the next year. Good luck to those who go, I have heard it’s awesome!

  • HOW did I miss this post?! I read this blog religiously!! I could cry! 🙁

  • @Brittany and @Erin Thanks for the tip about Twitter. I managed to find out about it earlier today and I am following. Boy, am I following! 😀

  • In response to Christine saying she cant make it, are you going to offer her spot to the next in line? i know i was close on the cut off point.

    • Yes, Christopher. We will be offering open spaces to the next entrants on the list, in order of receipt.

  • Erin, I sent back my e-mail last night with mine and my guest info but still have not gotten a response e-mail. Any idea when those will be going out?

    • They will be sent today, Jeremiah. Glad you’ll be joining us!

  • Keep in mind there is over a million season passholders so for very limited number events like this it’s very hard to get in. Or the snack thing at one more disney day 🙁

  • aww man!! a day late ! 🙁 gah!! im willing to take someone’s spot if they cant make it 😀 hahaha

  • I got in, but can’t go (my friend can’t get the time off of work). I just sent an email letting them know. Hope someone on here gets the chance to go in my place.

    • Thanks for letting us know, Christine.

  • I don’t know the times of the people who got invited, but the blog post went up at 3:04, I submitted at 3:05 and was not accepted. Neither was my bff who submitted at 3:06, or my brother who submitted at 3:05 as well. For us, it seems like it was a lottery style, and not a first come first serve deal.

  • No did not get in again… Erin-
    I am hoping you can answer this for future events. Is is first come first serve or lottery in the selecting of attendees?

    • Hi Debra – RSVPs for this meet-up were accepted first-come, first-served.
