BREAKING NEWS! Date Set for Lightning McQueen's Racing Academy!

Ka-Chow! Disney has just announced that the new Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy at Hollywood Studios is set to open on March 31st, 2019!

The new show-attraction will immerse guests in the world of Cars and bring them up close and personal with their favorite racing legend, Lightning McQueen. The Racing Academy will be located in Sunset Showcase near Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster.

Guests will take on the role of a rookie racer by cruising into the theater to find themselves face-to-face with Lightning McQueen, live on stage. Pulling everyone into the action, McQueen and the entire audience will be surrounded by a giant, wraparound screen that is nearly 20 feet tall and more than 200 feet wide.

Lightning McQueen is eager to show guests what he has learned over the years. He knows better than anyone that things don’t always go according to plan, but he has to think fast to get back on course. Favorites and friends like Tow Mater, Cruz Ramirez, and the other pals from Radiator Springs will make an appearance and chime in with their support as Lightning gears up for the challenge.

Head on down to the Sunset Showcase on March 31st to see the all-new Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy!
