Cars Land in Disney California Adventure park at the Disneyland Resort opened in June 2012. This new area of the park is an extraordinary and one-of-a-kind experience that transports guests to Radiator Springs and the world of Disney and Pixar’s “Cars.”

Turning this well-loved story into a real land that guests could experience took the talent and imagination of an amazing team. Kathy Mangum, executive producer of Cars Land, and Roger Gould, Pixar’s creative director for theme parks, discuss Cars Land’s unique evolution, rich, vibrant story, and what it was like to help dream up this special land in the video below.

Cars Land is one of the most amazing and breathtaking lands in a Disney theme park. The land combines creativity, innovation, and technology, as only Walt Disney Imagineering and Pixar can do.

We can’t wait until we can take a stroll down Route 66 again, especially at night when all of the neon is lit! Do you miss Cars Land as much as we do?
