  • Was it ever answered if and when FP will be available?

  • My son loves lightning mcqueen and we’re so pleased we’re there, staying in a Disney resort in late March. We’d love to surprise him with this experience. However we can’t seem to book any fast passes for it. As it’s past the 60 day mark and we’ve booked in what we can to make the most is staying on site, we’re hoping we won’t miss out on this amazing experience for our son. Can you let us know when fastpasses for this experience will become available please? Thanks x🏎

  • Also curious as to when FP will be available. Today was my 60 day mark- we arrive 3/31, and I didn’t see any options for this ride in Hollywood Studios for FP selection.

  • Will Fast Passes be available??

  • Where where where in Hollywood Studios???? I keep trying to figure out where it would be located, I have an idea…but did I ask yet, where? This sounds awesome! I am thrilled that CARS is coming to WDW!!!

  • We can’t wait to see the Attraction. Will this be similar to Turtle Talk?

  • Thanks for the great update! This will definitely be one of our first stops in Hollywood Studios. I don’t know who will have more fun: me or my kids!
