Jun 14, 2012 12:00 PM  Disneyland Talk Land
Since it’s now official that Cars Land and Buena Vista Street are now open, I can now post my review online. I’ll try not to give away the entire experience because I know a lot of you haven’t had to chance to explore Cars Land yet, but here’s more of a general view of the new land. I’ve also been sort of quiet about my experiences in Cars Land, prior to the opening, because there is so much that the company did not want to reveal, so I could not either. I got to experience Cars Land twice prior to any of the CM or AP previews. Once was back in March, when I was selected to test out Luigi’s Flying Tires. With about a dozen other CMs, we rode Luigi’s over and over and over, for about 4 hours. Even though we didn’t get to see the other parts of the land, it was fun to be in a new land that remained a secret from the public. The second time was a few weeks ago, prior to working Grad Night. My leads surprised us and took us on Radiator Springs Racers, as they were offering CMs to experience it for the first time. This was the first time many of us got to walk the streets of Radiator Springs and as we all walked onstage; we were all in awe of how majestic the rockwork and the neon signs were. Not knowing the complete details and the attraction was still in “dress rehearsal” mode, we all rode it and were all amazed of the show work and the thrill of the high speed race. What was the take home part for me was the new style of the Audio-Animatronics, as the Imagineers brought the cars of the film to life! Then after last week during the Cast Member previews, I finally had the chance to walk around the land and explore the town of Radiator Springs. My sister and I decided to ride Luigi’s first. It was her first time riding this attraction after me telling her all about it for weeks, and it was the first time I got to see the queue (it was an empty room during the testing). She enjoyed it a lot and can’t wait to ride it again. Then we rode Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree, which was the only attraction I had not experienced yet. There was a short line as we watched the others ride it while waiting in the queue. I agree with many that this attraction will be a “sleeper” attraction that many will hopefully not look over. Regarding the food of Cars Land, we only had enough time to try to the churro bites from the Cozy Cone. We were lucky to get a fresh batch of freshly cooked churros. There was enough churro bites to share with another person, but too much for one. Also, the chocolate dipping sauce made it interesting, but we could do without it. While waiting in line at the Cozy Cone, we saw Lighting McQueen and Mater both come out for their meet and greets. It was neat to see actual cars drive around the streets of Cars Land (makes sense…) and it definitely added a lot of atmosphere to the area. And for the Cars Land stores, I enjoyed walking around, perusing the new merchandise for the land. They were a lot smaller than I thought they would be, but each had their own unique merchandise for each store. And with only a few minutes left for the CM Preview, we quickly went and walked around Buena Vista Street. Even though I was a little upset that none of the stores were open, just seeing this new way that the park is going to immerse guests into this new theme was awesome. A little over 5 years ago, Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger presented a 5 year vision. In this statement, he presented his goals for both parks in Anaheim and the future of the company. Now after 5 years of construction, we made it! Now at Disneyland Park, we have new attractions (Star Tours: The Adventures Continue), classic attractions that were refurbished (ie: Matterhorn, Captain EO and more) and new restaurants and stores. In Disney California Adventure though, we’ve seen the largest change-over, giving the park a complete new identity. 5 years ago, DCA really didn’t have an identity and guests were wondering what adventure in California are they looking for? Now, with the new entrance of Buena Vista Street, guests will be taken back to Los Angeles of the 1920s and experience what it was like to step into an exciting city, just like Walt did. Also, with new attractions such as Toy Story Midway Mania, Ariel’s Undersea Adventure and Radiator Springs Racers, this park now has a “complete” feel to it. Back in the 1950s as Walt was building his dream theme park, he had the idea of submerging his guests into a magical place where they were to be transported from their daily life to a place where they can experience various environments by building his lands. He would often use his set designers from the studios to help design his new lands. This brings to the quote from one of the Imagineers when designing Cars Land. He said that in a film, you can control what the audience sees by placing certain things in the frame, but in a real life-environment, the guest has a 360 degree view of the area. Having this idea, the Imagineers had to bring the culture and energy of Radiator Springs to life. At Disney, we call this aspect the “show”. Show can be the way the attraction and/or land is decorated and portrayed, to having a clean area, or how the merchandise is neatly folded and stacked for guests’ shopping. This is why Disney puts a lot of effort into the décor and the way their “lands” are presented because they want their guests to leave their daily lives and to be transported to a magical place, like the small town on Route 66 feel of Radiator Springs or the vintage but modern twist of Buena Vista Street. I can’t wait to see the reactions of guests the first time they race around Ornament Valley or the first time they see Buena Vista Street at night. As Walt said, “Disneyland will never be completed as long as there is imagination left in the world.”
Bravo!!  That was great!! Thanks so much for this. And wow!  That you kept it in so long.  Thanks again!  Can't wait to visit! - misschurro  9895.8 #12 1:18PM
Thanks for your thoughts, BBM! My family and I attended the preview on Monday and, something I'd like to add- the imagineers did a a fantastic job thinking about the visitors' experience. There was SHADE. All the queue areas were well shaded (A/C in Luigi's!). I had stopped to buy a hat on BV street because I forgot mine and thought I would bake over the course of the hot afternoon in Cars Land... But we didn't! Another note on the shops on BVS- they were wonderful! So much merchandise I had never seen! They were spacious and carpeted and the ceilings in the toy shop changed colors! Big thumbs up. My final comment was how friendly and excited all of the CM's I encountered were. I am so excited for them, CA Adventure's future as a park, and our wonderful Disney! - MoonWillow  396.2 #658 8:36PM

BBM. You are so right on with your review. Mr Hubby works Mater and Lugigi and the day he came home and said " I got to ride racers today and it is awesome" I told him those were words for divorce. Lol. I went to the Cast preview and was blown away at the detail. The food at Flo's is awesome. Great portions and reasonable price. Can't wait to try it again in sept when the crowds die down. And Maters is really fun. - Jimineycricket  197.8 #2181 11:53PM
Awesome review!!! Thank you sooo much! I cant wait to see it!!! - Zipitydoodahdad  270.0 #1308 12:06AM
It was magical, so amazing. I was there for only a couple hours the evening of the opening. Having to be pushed around in a wheelchair was probably not the best way to experience my first Cars Land visit but it was amazing just the same. I cannot wait to experience without restrictions!  - PrincessLani  111.3 #3602 4:23PM
Thank you! Waiting to experience it in September! 🏁🚧⚠ - DisneylandMe  31.1 #6429 3:37AM
Thank you!  I've never been too excited about CA but I can't wait to explore it in December now! - Aurora1111  119.2 #3427 10:05AM
Something I love about Disney is the fact that even the people who work there get just as excited (if not MORE excited) about new lands/attractions at the parks. I also love that you said you couldn't wait to see how guests would react to the changes! It's kind of like when you take a friend whose never been to Disneyland/DCA and how you're watching them react to what their seeing for the first time. Great review! I hope you get as much joy watching us experience it as WE will undoubtedly get from actually experiencing this new look for DCA! - PumpkinKing  64.1 #4630 11:14AM

It will stay the same until someone else gets enough points and quality to pass a couple more people. Even though two people on the list don't post much they still are ahead of the rest of us in quality points so they earned their spot. And Plumiegirl you post QC so you're qc score is high! 😄 - secretagentangel  14017.7 #8 8:33PM
when you are at the top you tend to move slower because its the same folks that frequent the parks most. So hence the top ten.. trolls ;) - Plumiegirl  10907.8 #11 9:55PM

Did you know that almost everything in MouseWait can be found with a few taps in the MagicSearch bar? Did you know that we add things to MagicSearch weekly (i.e. requests from you--see below)? MagicSearch enables ONE-THUMB searching to help you find individual menu items, vegetarian or gluten free food, reviews, wait times (even restaurant wait times), exclusive insider Disneyland tips, annual pass holder, parking info, Star Wars Park info, celebrities, Disneyland news, Hidden Mickeys, crowd forecasts (unFORECAST), Photopass, birthdays, refurbishment info, and amazing content from almost a million pages of original content in the MouseWait Lounge.

14 more days and I shall be entering in wait times for the first time( I was slow and shy to post). Well actually it will be 15 days. The first  day we check in and go to Trader Sam's. 😉 - varela2892  111.0 #3606 7:14AM
I just want to thank all the newbies who are on the list so much lately! This was started as a wait time and more app so by your starting out from the beginning doing wait times is awesome! 2/3of my points are from wait times. I make a game of it and have fun doing them. Hope everyone tries it, it helps others and you earn credits!!👏👏👏 - secretagentangel  14017.7 #8 9:06PM
Half of my points are from wait times.  - Goofytom  5142.6 #33 10:28PM
I figure it is the least my wife and i can do, plus it is great exercise! I keep saying, one of these days we will go to one of the meet-ups. We generally only go on Saturday and sometimes Sunday as well. That darn thing called 'work' just gets in the way!  - oiler2112  1593.5 #136 7:07AM

I only post wait times if I've actually gone on the ride..( with the exception if the line is extra short, or extra long..) I try to give folks a heads up. Most of the time I have trouble posting times in certain areas of the park so I get frustrated... - carminaire  1162.7 #192 1:19PM
You're allowed to do it from the sign in front of each attraction or if you go on it a lot and can see the line is shorter/longer you can post that.  - secretagentangel  14017.7 #8 9:04PM

Just installed the MW app on my new phone yesterday. This will be very helpful for me since I am used to the android version. Thank you. - teapotsandteacups  5653.3 #28 11:41PM
I've had a lot of trouble with platinum version. It seems to "magically" close itself at random times. The most common random closes are: after updating ride or food times, after clicking on a different feature in the app, or immediately after opening. I generally have to re-open it 2-3 times, at which point it stays open until I've made my update, but if I stop using it for more than 5 minutes and go back to it I have to go through the magical closings again. 😓 - Mouse28  946.2 #239 9:06AM
