Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy Is Zooming Into Hollywood Studios!

Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy Will Be Zooming Into Hollywood Studios!!

Buckle up racing fans!  Disney has just released opening dates for the Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy!  Get your adrenaline pumping as this exciting new feature will open March 31, 2019!!

Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World is going under some major refurbishments.  Disney is transforming this already amazing park into a whole new world!  With the recent opening of Toy Story Land with the Slinky Dog Dash and Alien Swirling Saucers, guests were already raving about this park.  Now with the addition of Star Wars Land this fall and now Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy on March 31st, guests will never want to leave; even more than they didn’t want to before.  We all know those Disney Blues, it’s a real thing, go ask your doctor!

Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy will throw your right into the “Cars” World as you learn what it takes to be a champion racer at Sunset Showcase.  When the show first starts, Lightning McQueen demonstrates what he has learned over the years using his brand-new, state-art-of-the-art simulator and wraparound screen!  Watch out though, things don’t always go as planned for Lightning McQueen.  With the help of Tow Mater, Cruz Ramirez and the crew from Radiator Springs, Lightning McQueen will have to think fast to get back on course!

So dawn those shiny red lightning bolt sneakers and say “Kachow!” as you cruise through Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  Once the ride is completed, step outside and snap a photo with the trainer-turned-racer Cruz Ramirez before you speed on out of sight!
