Veronica Hill checks in at Radiator Springs for a special tour of Cars Land.
Cars Land completed a billion-dollar expansion at Disney California Adventure , which took 5 years to complete. And guess what? It was worth the wait.
No detail was overlooked in this faithful recreation of the movie — from the blinking street light on Route 66, to the awesome mountain range that overlooks the valley.
Be sure to grab a Radiator Springs Racers Fast Pass when you arrive. Then just kick back, and enjoy the ride! You can spin and whirl on a bed of air at Luigi's Flying Tires, then get into the swing of things at Mater's Junkyard Jamboree.
The Cozy Cone Motel is a restaurant in Cars Land that's modeled after the famous Wigwam Motel in San Bernardino. The restaurant sells everything in a cone — from popcorn and pretzel bites, to their famous Chicken Chile Verde and Chili Cone Queso recipe. I recommend the Pomegranate Limeade, which comes in kid-friendly — or adult creations.
The Motel hosts meet-and-greets with Mater and Lightning McQueen throughout the day, so be sure to pop by the lobby and say hello.
For more good eats, check out Flo's V8 Cafe, which was modeled after the homestyle diners found along the Mother Road. One of their specialties are Flo's homemade pies!
And if you're looking for a healthy snack, Fillmore's Taste In has you covered with ice cold waters, drinks and fresh cut fruit.
You'll find plenty of Cars souvenirs inside three gift shops. Ramone's House of Body Art sells a variety of Cars merchandise, while Radiator Springs Curios sells an awesome assortment of Route 66 souvenirs. At Sarge's Surplus Hut, you can stock up on a variety Disney collectibles and treats.
Before you leave, check out the Blue Sky Cellar, which highlights the construction of Cars Land. This is also a great spot to catch the Pixar Play Parade, or watch Radiator Springs as it lights up in neon after dark. It's one of the best photo-opps in the park!
Thanks for joining us in Cars Land! We'll see you next time!
