  • [Chat] Lightning McQueen & Mater in Cars Land: Drive-Around Characters

    I'm sure once Cars Land opens, the Lightning McQueen & Mater meet-and-greet will move over there, but do you think they'll be walk-around characters? Like, you know how they drive in the parade, do you think they'll ever drive around Cars Land? I'm sure once it opens, it might be too crowded in walkways and such for that, but after a while, do you think they'll bring them out on weekdays in less busy seasons and stuff, when it'll be less of a safety issue? I mean, they could drive slow, and someone could be there with them, having people move out of the way for safety.

    not worth the liability when you can simply have them interact with guests standing still.

    Won't happen. It's all risk with little to no reward.

      Horse drawn streetcars.

        True. They should have like a mini-parade every other hour or so, with Mater and McQueen, and they should add new characters, like Sally.

          Red Car Trolleys.

            The Horse drawn carts don't have an existing working alternative with no risks. Not really a true comparison even tho both pose similar risks. The difference is the character M&G can achieve virtually the same benefits (including more like backdrops) without needing to move through the park.

            I'm sure the carts have drawn plenty of dirty looks from a liability standpoint inside the company. But they have Walt's ghost on their side.

              But the Red Car Trolleys are going in. Same concept as Horse Drawn Streetcars. I don't see why the CARS characters have to be stationary. I like the calvalcade idea, so it's not totally spontaneous.

                I see lawsuits happening if they implemented moving Cars...

                  They have a cast member walking up next to the horses saying "make room".

                  Why couldn't someone wear a McQueen racing outfit and carry a checkered flag?

                    Quantify what they gain from doing this besides a fixed M&G..

                      By the way some kids wander, you'd think they'd want to get hit by Lightning McQueen.

                      It's dangerous enough he's in a parade with hundreds of little toddlers barely staying outside of the parade parameter at the sight of him. Believe me.

                        Why do the Rocket Jets look better in the sky? Why have the Red Car move through the street? I'd like to see moving cars that bounce and talk and drive around and (talk to guests like the remote controlled trash can, PUSH.) They seem more realistic and alive than when they're parked off to the side and you just take a picture with a parked car.

                        The difference is, they're not parked cars in a parking lot. They are Disney characters that are supposed to come alive. So why not hire a couple of cast members to escort the car through the crowd, get some interaction going, and make it more of an event to meet these characters.

                        It's cheap, simple, easy. I don't see why you'd worry about liability, there's a lot more risk operating the roller coaster all day and night.

                          Thanks for supporting my idea. =) Yeah, I agree, if the cars were moving through the land every so often, it'd make it more realistic, and most of the time, they'd still be standing still for meet-and-greets, when theyre not out in the land somewhere.

                            Well, if you want to get into imagineering, it's a constant battle between pencil pushers and creative types. Number crunchers vs. people like Lassiter who want to imagine pie in the sky.

                              And while they're at it, make their windshield eyes be LDS screens that can have eye movements... And maybe make their mouths / grills move a little. It is 2009. They should not look like one solid piece of plastic.
