These characters and films are represented in Disney Parks throughout the world and give Guests the opportunity to immerse themselves in the magic.

TikToker @ninefivegarage recently shared a video where they alleged they were being sued by Disney.

The TikToker has created a one-of-a-kind Lightning McQueen masterpiece that looks just like the one in the Disney Pixar film. He says that Disney is challenging him because his car looks too much like the character in the movie. However, the video was posted on April Fools Day which has many believing it is just a joke, rather than an actual lawsuit or a cease-and-desist letter.

It should be noted, though, that Disney is very protective of its intellectual property and many businesses, as well as creators, receive cease-and-desist letters each year for using those IPs.

Lightning McQueen can be seen at Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando. He and the gang can also be seen at Cars Land in Disneyland Resort at Disney California Adventure.

At Disneyland, there is so much for Guests to enjoy! Now that the mask mandate has dropped for fully vaccinated Guests, Guests can enter buildings without a face covering if they so choose. Walking up to Sleeping Beauty Castle is always a dream, especially when you get to go inside and relive the story of Aurora and Maleficent. Riding classics like “it’s a small world”, Pirates of the Caribbean, Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, The Haunted Mansion, Matterhorn Bobsleds, Splash Mountain, and more will have you feeling the magic, and craving a churro! Toontown is currently gearing up for a massive change which will be revealed in 2023 with the reopening of the land, and the debut of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway. Plus, now at Disneyland, Guests can enjoy Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge for some blue milk, or green milk, and ride Rise of the Resistance and Smuggler’s Run.
