In June 2012, the reimagining of Disney California Adventure park culminated with the opening of Cars Land, an extraordinary and one-of-a-kind experience that transports guests to Radiator Springs and the world of Disney and Pixar’s “Cars.”
Bringing this well-loved story from the screen to reality took the hearts, minds and talents of an incredible team. In this Behind the Magic video, Kathy Mangum, executive producer of Cars Land, and Roger Gould, Pixar’s creative director for theme parks, pull over to discuss Cars Land’s unique evolution, rich, vibrant story and what it was like to help dream up this special land.
Cars Land continues to touch the hearts of so many, and combine creativity, innovation and technology, as only Walt Disney Imagineering and Pixar can do. We can’t wait for guests to follow Route 66 into Radiator Springs, once again. In the meantime, celebrate the road ahead with this special look at Cars Land.
