Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy in Hollywood Studios

Race, don’t walk, over to the brand NEW Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy in Hollywood Studios! This brand new attraction is sure to delight Cars fans, both young and old! An indoor attraction, this 10-minute long adventurous show will offer a much-needed break from those hot Disney days!

Bench seating awaits you inside of the Racing Academy, where you will come face to face with audio-animatronic Lightning McQueen himself. Your favorite Cars characters race each other on a nearly two-story high, 200-foot curved screen in the Sunset Showcase theater.

Outside of the theater additional character meet and greets are available. Photopass photographers will snap your pic as you meet Cruz Ramirez and D.J., who also hosts “D.J.’s Ready! Set! Party Time!” dance party right there in the courtyard!

“D.J.’s Ready! Set! Party Time!” dance party is high energy and gets the whole crowd interacting with the DJ! Check out the video below of just how much fun it is.

Fun, Cars themed merchandise is also available at a kiosk in the courtyard area, as well as in shops throughout the park. Most of the items aren’t new, just new to that area of the park.  Your little(or big) racer can get outfitted in their race day best with some of the apparel options as well.

“Now more than ever” you will want to grab your Cars fans and head over to Hollywood Studios to check out this exciting new attraction!
