My kids and I had the chance to visit California Adventure’s new Cars Land attraction at California Adventure. We are big fans of California Adventure . . . it’s a Disney park adjacent to Disneyland and it really is my favorite of all the Disney parks. It is a very Pixar-centric park, and in my opinion it’s the best park for small kids because there are so many rides catering to them, and because the lines tend to be shorter than the Magic Kingdom. It’s also a park that is “doable” with four kids and only one adult. My kids already love going there for the Ariel, Monsters Inc, and Toy Story rides, and the Bug’s Life area is like a mini amusement park for the preschool set. I’ve been really excited to see what Cars Land would be like.
I’ll admit, we’ve been seeing commercials for Cars Land on tv and I’ve been skeptical that it would look like the renderings they’ve been showing. You guys . . . IT DOES. It’s wild. It really does feel like you’ve been transported to a scenic desert. In classic Disney fashion, every single detail has been created to transport you into radiator springs, right down to the trashcans.
Here are a few of our favorite spots in Cars Land:
If you are planning a visit, check out the Verizon app for Disneyland, which includes maps, line estimates, and even menus to each restaurant in the park.
