What do you get when you combine Christmas lights and neon lights? The holidays in Cars Land at Disney California Adventure park! Radiator Springs is aglow with the twinkle of the season as residents have decorated their businesses along Route 66.


Showing that you don’t have to be fancy to be festive, even Mater’s junkyard sparkles.
And across the street, Sarge puts the spirit in the season with a patriotic display that guarantees fireworks every night.

Luigi’s Casa della Tires and Ramone’s House of Body Art shine against the beautiful backdrop of Ornament Valley.

What is your favorite holiday display in Cars Land?


  • They look like Tom Bricker’s work to me… Love his vibrant photography!

    Holidays at Disney Parks are the best!

  • Shall we thank Paul Hiffmeyer for these fantastic photos?

    • No, these actually are not Paul Hiffmeyer creations! We let him have the night off. 😉

  • i cant wait. first time doing it at christmas time. on dec 4 for my bday

    • Happy birthday! You will love Cars Land all dressed up for the holidays. Enjoy!

  • The hubcap Christmas tree in front of the Courthouse/Fire Dept. (next to the Santa Stanley fountain/statue) went missing sometime in the last week! It was there at the beginning of the season (even before that, actually), and then it disappeared! I would have to imagine that those pesky Santa Ana winds are to blame, but I’m not sure.

    Do you know if the hubcap tree will return for the holiday season, or is it gone for the rest of the year?

    • We’ve got a mystery on our hands! I’ll see what I can find out.

  • I’m not sure why, but the hubcap tree and the sparkplug tree are my favorite. CarsLand is done up right and I enjoy it every year.

    • Totally agree!

  • Looks fantastic! I love all of the different Christmas tree concoctions. The attention to detail goes unmatched.

    • You’re so right – I see something new every time I’m there!
