I was invited as media to cover this event. All opinions are my own.
Lightning McQueen Racing Academy Sunset Showcase
Learn what it takes to be a champion racer in this wraparound screen studio. The studio only has about a 15-minute wait (at time of opening). Once inside, take a seat and be entertained by Lightning McQueen’s pals with fun quizzes and animated interactions before the show begins.
Soon, Lightning McQueen appears and takes us on one wild ride! When things don’t go exactly as planned, he has to think fast to get back on course. The show is approximately 10 minutes start to finish and full of exciting entertainment.
DJ’s Ready! Set! Party Time!
Head to the courtyard after the show to experience Cars-inspired dances and games. DJ—the ultimate party car from Route 66 interacts with fans (especially kids) to get them revved up for the party. As well as trainer-turned-racer Cruz Ramirez is there to snap photos with her fans. DJ’s Ready! Set! Party Time! is daily between 10 am and 6 pm.
