  1. I have to agree with the Indiana Jones of California Adventure analogy, that is exactly what the ride looks like.

    I can’t stand hearing Spanish, so I doubt I would like it when Mater does it. Don’t know why Disney has to make folks listen to Spanish in the parks. That aside, I think the only part of Carsland that is a miss is the Flying Tires. I bet they’ll be replaced within five years. It was an interesting idea, but it’s the Tigger’s Bouncy Place equivalent in Carsland…something that wiser heads should have taken off the drawing board before the park was built.

    I can’t WAIT to hear what Disney has in store for the rest of DCA…I can’t even imagine how Paradise Pier will be retimed in the future. maybe there could be a Carsland expansion somehow too.

    Wish they would have found a way to block the Mickey’s Fun Wheel view that you get when you ride RSR. Everything is so well themed except for this one part where that clunky ferris wheel juts out from behind the rocks and ruins the illusion. Up until then, it really felt like you were not in Anaheim but in Radiator Springs…until you see that ferris wheel in the distance and you are jarred back into reality.

      Jeff: I’m with you. I was taken aback several years ago when I first heard a safety warning in Spanish on the train. If the local Latino population LIVES in California, still part of the US last time I checked, they should know enough English to understand a fairly simple warning. They don’t do it in French, German, or Japanese, yet I don’t see guests from Europe and Japan acting like they didn’t hear the warning.

      So to fast forward, now that I’m used to hearing it, I have to say that hearing either Mater or Heimlich recite the warning in Spanish is a HOOT!

    In reply to Mr. Lynch: They have Spanish in the parks as their is a large percentage of Hispanics in Southern California.

      I find it hard to believe that someone who can afford a ticket to Disney for the day doesn’t know enough English to understand an announcement. So why subject the rest of us to the Spanish?

        Just stop, your making yourself sound ignorant.

        You’re right. I hate it when I’m in other countries and they insist on giving English announcements in addition to their own language. Don’t insult me, if I can afford to go there I must already know the language. So why subject their own citizens to the English?

  4. One of the best parts of riding the monorail is hearing the spiel in Spanish!

    From the pictures Cars Land looks even more incredible than the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

    can someone please take down JEFF LYNCH’S ignorant racist comments inmediatamente?! there’s enough hatred in the world, JEFF. remember, it’s called “the happiest place on earth” for a reason. give it a rest.

      Don’t start name-calling. Just because you disagree with someone does not make them racist. He didn’t slam all Latinos. I think YOUR comment should be removed.

    Once you get on the ride, it is great, but the line is pure torture with that music that NO ONE has ever heard of….something between folk, and blue grass, and a one-man see-if-I-can-make-it-in-music record…I mean even Mator’s “dadgum, dadgum, dadgum” is fun …seriously…the costumes the ride operators are wearing do NOT match this music AT ALL! I was expecting “Little Deuce Coup” or something-I like MOST all music…ANYTHING BUT THAT! Makes me wish I was handicapped to get it over with!!

    One more thing….it is reeeeaaalllly horrible when the cast members are telling people to not take pictures of McQueen’s car in the back because they do not want to wait in line…its a free country, free park, and if you didn’t want people taking pictures back there, then u should have put up a wall or something….but hearing cast yell at people who are looking for a good time is just plain sickening.
