As Guests cruise down the main drag, they can shop at Ramone’s House of Body Art and Sarge’s Surplus Shop, or grab a bite to eat at the Cozy Cone Motel, Flo’s V8 Cafe, or Fillmore’s Taste-In. Guests even have a chance to meet Lightning McQueen and some of Radiator Springs’ residents.

But the crown jewel of the themed-land–and the one featured in Disney’s Instagram Story–is the jaw-dropping attraction: Radiator Springs Racers.

The Disneyland Resort website describes this unforgettable ride as the following:

Kick the fun into overdrive as you buckle up for a road race featuring familiar car-acters, fantastic scenery and “wheel” thrills. 

Tour Ornament Valley and arrive in Radiator Springs—the cutest little town in Carburetor County—where the movie Cars springs to life. 

As you prep for the big race, all the locals show up to help. Mater, Lightning McQueen, Doc Hudson, Sally, Luigi, Guido, Mack and Ramone are all rooting for you! 

Take a quick spin into either Luigi’s Casa Della Tires or Ramone’s House of Body Art to get a racing makeover—then hit the road. 

Ready, Get Set, Go! 

Meet your friendly competition at the starting line and get ready to race for first place! Zip over hills, zoom around high-banked turns and cruise down camelback straightaways past spectacular red-rock formations. 

Even if your car comes in second, this is one race where everyone’s a winner!

Cars Land and the rest of the Disneyland Resort are still closed due to the global pandemic. The reopening which was originally scheduled for July 17 now been pushed back. No new reopening date has been announced.
