  • Trip Report - Buena Vista Street and CarsLand & Photos from Radiator Springs Racers

    Not sure where these came from, as I got them from a friend of a friend. But when I went they asked people not to take photos. Big signs said do not share on social media.

    Visited Buena Vista Street, which I thought looked sharp. The Starbucks there was really really busy - apparently this store is a huge hit!

    The entrance to Carsland is breathtaking - under a huge rock arch. Looks rural once you enter, although you do see the Racers from the ride going around. The downtown area of Radiator Springs looks just. like. the movie. Seriously. Such great details here.

    The cue of Radiator Springs Racers takes you through a roadside attraction with a collection of radiator caps, and the same for oil bottles (the whole building is made out of cement and embedded glass bottles), fountains, etc.

    Radiator Springs Racers I loved. Was not expecting all the dark ride stuff, and some of that was hit or miss, but the ride itself start to finish is SO impressive. They really have a winner with this one. Saw them filming a commercial with a modified car with lighting from the bottom up on the faces of a family, and cameras mounted in the backseat.

    Couldn't wait to go again - but it broke down three times, 10 mins to 38 mins stopped, and that kept me from re-entering the long line.

    The one restroom in Cars Land was clean and nice, even if a little hard to find.

    Had a full meal (wine, entree, dessert) in Flo's V8, and love the details in here. The gold records on the wall:

    Wow thanks for the review!

    BVS/CL just sounds like a huge hit all around! Crazy we only have a week to go now.

    As for the no pictures/no reviews rule as I been saying its utterly futile! And then Disney tells people not to take pictures but then sends out pics themselves of RSR! Sure I get they want to have their pictures make it look as good and professional as possible, but whats the point? Do you want people to be surprised or not?

    And for the record, I have not seen any pics of any interiors, including the ones you posted here (I quickly read the review before they were uploaded lol). I'm trying not to be TOO spoiled, but man its hard!

          Thanks for the pictures...yeah I'll be pretty surprised if No video from Cars Racers appears before the 15th, what Disney is trying to do in this age...is ALMOST impossible
          Happy Halloween!!!

              RytheGuy, I was there yesterday.

              MacDaddy, it's great to hear from you again. I see your post count has increased since we spoke. Great photos as always.

                  It's amazing when money isn't the overall dictator what disney is able to accomplish. I hope this sets the bar for future resort expansions especially tomorrowland and hopefully the long awaited frontierland expansions.

                    We can only hope, they have learned there less.....but History does repeat itself so.....at one point Disney will fall again and want to make a cheap buck over spending time and money to earn an honest dollar
                    Happy Halloween!!!

                      Yeah you can count on that! But I am happy they have learned their mistakes from the past and trying not to repeat them. Look at Shanghai Disneyland, going a COMPLETE opposite of HKDL, ie, BIGGER, original attractions, real E tickets etc. HKDL was an embarrasement of a park. I have friends in China that would never bother going there because its so small. But even with HKDL, they have built 3 lands now, two of them with original E tickets, one coming out next month so they are trying to turn things around at all their parks now or the the ones who need the most help attendance wise.

                              Any POV of RSR will likely be pulled by Disney as soon as they get word. It's worth just waiting until the 15th.
