John Ratzenberger Returns as the Voice of Mack for Lightning McQueen's Racing Academy

John Ratzenberger Returns as the Voice of Mack for Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy. We are a few days away from the grand premiere of Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. In preperation for the grand opening here is a sneak peek at what we can expect from the new attraction!

Disney-Pixar recently announced that John Ratzenberger would be returning as the voice of Lightning McQueen’s pal, Mack. Both Mack and Sallie Carrera will welcome the racers to the attraction with important messages to the audience and testing their knowledge of Lightning McQueen while they wait for the show to start.

Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy is located next to Rock n Roller Coaster.

Check out the latest video to see a bit of John Ratzenberger’s performance as Mack for the new show as well as some sneak peeks to the attraction, auditiorium, and other characters we will get to see and hear from in the show including Larry The Cable Guy as Tow Mater!

The front entrance to the attraction has been modified with new signs and themed areas including what appears to be an area that we may get to see some of our favorite characters from the Cars Franchise, such as Cruz Ramirez from Cars 3!

The new attraction is set to open at the end of this month on March 31, 2019 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy is located on the left hand side of the Chinese Theater, soon to be the home of Mickey and Minnies Runaway Railway, and across from Echo Lake and The Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular!

Are you and your little ones excited to try out this new experience? Do you plan on going to the grand opening on March 31st? Do you have a favorite memory or photo from meeting the characters from Cars? We would love to see and hear about your experience! Feel free to share your photos and stories in the comments!
