The final stretch of the race to the grand opening of Cars Land is upon as, as Disneyland Resort prepares the final touches of the 5-year expansion to the Disney California Adventure theme park. Though construction walls won’t come down for another couple weeks, guests visiting the park can currently catch a glimmering glimpse of new Disney magic as the main street of Radiator Springs lights up each night in dazzling neon.
