The Christmas Trees of Cars Land at Disney California Adventure Park

It’s Christmas Eve! The most wonderful day of the year is just hours away, but the residents of Radiator Springs have been celebrating for weeks here at Cars Land in Disney California Adventure park. Let’s take a look …

Fillmore's Tree in Cars Land at Disney California Adventure Park

On your right as you enter Cars Land, you’ll find Fillmore’s tree. Our favorite eco-conscious van loves to create art out of materials he finds around town. Naturally, he adorns his tree with peace signs, but my favorite detail is the car angel at the top of his tree.

Sarge's Tree in Cars Land at Disney California Adventure Park

Not to be outdone, Sarge has built a patriotic holiday spectacular. No need to create your own star when there’s one right under your nose – or in Sarge’s case, on your hood.

Mater's Tree in Cars Land at Disney California Adventure Park

Across Route 66, Mater has also created a tree out of materials he found in his junkyard – a stack of tires topped with a spark plug.

Sally's Tree in Cars Land at Disney California Adventure Park

Next door, at the Cozy Cone Motel, Sally has CONE-structed her own CONE-ifer out of traffic cones, lit with the help of – what else? – a car battery.

Lizzie's Tree in Cars Land at Disney California Adventure Park

Sally’s other neighbor, Lizzie, has built my favorite Cars Land tree out of Route 66 signs.

Flo's Tree in Cars Land at Disney California Adventure Park

And inside Flo’s V8 Cafe, you can find this shiny tree backed by the best view in Carburetor County!

Which Cars Land tree is your favorite?


  • Wow! Just the other day I commented (under the Blog about the Christmas trees at Walt Disney World and at the international Disney properties) that it would be great to see the Cars Land trees featured as well, or maybe some of the other fantastic trees around Disneyland Resort. And here is a Blog about the Cars Land trees! Ask and you shall receive, I guess, right?

    I love all of the Cars Land trees — it’s hard to pick a favorite. I guess it would be between Flo’s tree and Mater’s tree. I also really love the adorable mini-Cozy Cone gingerbread display in the office of the Motel, complete with a tiny cone Christmas tree. So clever!

    May I also throw this out there for a potential Blog idea? All of the gorgeous, mysterious masquerade masks that adorn the lampposts and dot the alleyways of New Orleans Square! I suspect that they go overlooked by many people — but they are so ornate and unique to that land…not to mention that they work as both holiday season decor and as Mardi Gras decor.

    Merry Christmas, Erin! Thanks for all of the great work that you do for the Parks Blog, year-round.

  • I love the tree decorated with hubcaps in front of the courthouse. I also really love Sally’s tree made up of cones.
    Cars Land has such great decorations.

  • Hi Erin,

    I really enjoyed the photographs of all the trees at Cars Land, they’re stunning!

    I hope to see them in person in the future, my son would just love them!

    Thank you for posting, Happy Holidays!

    Best regards!

  • Flo’s Trees are my favorite! There’s a second one by the condiments. I just love all the sparkle!

  • The Route 66 signs tree is my fave but they are all wonderfully creative and fun!
