Life is a highway

Chet and I had the privilege of being invited to a special preview/ media event to the new Cars Land and the Grand Re-Opening of Disney California Adventure at the Disneyland Resort in California.  It was an incredible three days to experience all of the new exciting things happening at Disney California Adventure Park, see friends, and have some time just to ourselves.

Cars Land is incredible.  The town of Radiator Springs from the Cars movies comes to life in a life size replica with three new rides.  Disney California Adventure Park was closed to the public one day during this preview event.  With the limited number of people, we were able to ride six times on the e-ticket ride, Radiator Springs Racers.  The town is even more spectacular at night, when the neon turns on just like it does in the movie.

Celebrities were everywhere.  We saw Larry the Cable Guy (voice of Mater) and Gennifer Goodwin (from Once Upon a Time), and countless others hiding under hats and sunglasses.  Big names in the Disney community were everywhere as well.  Chet had a short conversation with John Lasseter.  We even got to sit and talk with the Imagineer, Bob Gurr, who worked along side Walt Disney in designing Disneyland before it opened.  We loved listening to his stories!

Definitely an amazing three days!  I can't wait until we can go back again with our girls!

Part of the opening was the redesign of the front entrance of Disney California Adventure park.  It is now themed to reflect California in 1923 when Walt Disney first arrived and includes real working red street cars.
