Another update! Disney Parks Blog

First Look: Cars Land Attraction Marquees at Disney California Adventure Park
posted on April 23rd, 2012 by Kathy Mangum, Executive Producer & Vice President, Walt Disney Imagineering

I’ve already told you about the neon signs and merchandise location signs we’ve installed at Cars Land, but I’m back today to show you the marquees that have been installed at each of our three attractions. What I love about these marquees is that they are so varied from each other while perfectly capturing the essence of the attraction they represent. From Luigi’s exuberant hand-painted window sign for Luigi’s Flying Tires, to Mater’s unique take on how he’s adapted his home to host Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree, to the archway that guests will pass under to enter Radiator Springs Racers, our Walt Disney Imagineering graphics team has outdone itself!

Our team continues to be thrilled daily with the finishing touches that are being put in place at Cars Land. We can’t wait for you to come and see it all for yourselves!

I like how they used the tires of the car as signs for the Fast Pass and Stand-By entrances--but I imagine many guests will overlook them and go in the wrong entrance, anyway.

Behind the construction walls of Cars Land at Disney California Adventure park, a photographer’s dream is waiting to be discovered. From the awe-inspiring rockwork to the whimsical traces of all the residents of Radiator Springs, there is so much to see (and shoot), that I thought it was time to share some of my favorite photos from this one-of-a-kind place.

When I saw the clouds this day, I knew I had to shoot Ornament Valley. Shooting this location is like being transported to another place.

You can already imagine cars zooming by Willy’s Butte!

The plant life in Cars Land is really amazing. It seems like there are as many photos to take as there are cactus in the valley.

Here is a slightly different angle on the entrance to Radiator Springs Racers that Kathy Mangum shared yesterday. This arch really invites you in to this incredible attraction, not to mention photo location.

Before we leave Cars Land, it seems only fitting to show the statue of Stanley, the founder of Radiator Springs. This location is surely going to be a popular one when Cars Land welcomes guests this summer.

I’ll be sharing more unique photos from “the cutest little town in Carburetor County,” so check back soon!

Those first few shots are absolutely jaw-dropping. Almost impossible to believe that that was a parking lot three years ago. :omg:

Soon, DCA will be worth visiting again. Radiator Springs looks great, and I hope their new E-ticket ride measures up. I'm not a big fan of the Cars movies (particularly the second one), but I am looking forward to visiting Carsland.

^^ I completely agree Chuck.

This area looks jaw-dropping impressive. Disney has made the area look fantastic, so hopefully the rides and shops live up to the hype.

Great update! Thanks for posting those amazing photos.

I can't wait for the new land to open. :b

Perhaps our leaders (Robb & Elissa) will come back to California for the grand opening!

It would be great to see a big TPR get together for the opening of this new land.

The future for DCA looks bright!
