On your mark get set GO! Disney World has a brand new attraction at Hollywood Studios Park! You gotta come check out the new Lightning McQueen Racing Academy Show. This high octane attraction fully immerses you in the Cars Universe.
Wondering where to meet Lightning McQueen and more Cars stars? Lightning McQueen Racing Academy is the place, now open at Hollywood Studios. #NowMoreThanEver. You can find this new show on the far north side of the park. As you enter, stay to the right and walk down ‘sunset blvd’. Make a left at Tower of Terror and then make a right past the Rockin Roller Coaster. There you will see the entrance to Lightning McQueen Racing Academy.
Put the pedal to the metal! Gear up to come ‘bumper to bumper’ with the legendary Lightning McQueen, Tow Mater, Cruz Ramirez and the whole gang from Radiator Springs.
Lightning McQueen Racing Academy
This attraction is a One-Of-A-Kind show. The show technically begins outside as you wait to go in! There are two life size cars to take photos with, along with MANY insta-worthy photo spots.
Before the show there is a very talented dance crew that comes out and performs some cool moves to the classic Cars soundtrack we have all come to love. Dance and sing along – my kids did!
The show begins as Tow Mater welcomes you and introduces everyones favorite racer. Lightning McQueen! With lights, sound and a smoke machine – you will see this incredible feat of technology come to life. It is so realistic. The way the car talks and moves looks so realistic!
McQueen is racing in a simulator when the evil villain hacks into the simulator and challenges our hero to another race. McQueen is struggling and realizes that he can only win with the help of his friends. (Isn’t that true of life!)
I have always loved the Cars Franchise and the message of the original movie. Pixar and Disney created a magical movie with Cars bit an even more important lesson to take away.
The heart of the movie message is about the special experiences we give up for the sake of conveniences. It’s time to slow down, enjoy the inefficiencies and detours of life. Choose to love these imperfect moments.
Toddler & Family Friendly
I love that Disney finally created a little kid friendly attraction on this side of the park! Usually small children don’t venture past the Tower of Terror or Rocking Roller Coaster! Now they have something for the whole family at the far north side of the park!
