“Cars 3,” the number one movie this weekend, introduces a new star to the world of Pixar. The yellow race car Cruz Ramirez is introduced as the plucky trainer for the down-on-his-luck racing star Lightning McQueen. By the end of the movie she’s playing a more central role to the story. You can now meet Ramirez at both Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney California Adventure.
In DHS, head to Pixar Place, beyond the entrance to Toy Story Midway Mania, and find Cruz Ramirez making a pit stop and displaying a Piston Cup trophy. The car can interact with guests through engine revs, her eyes, and the occasional remark. Disney has photopass cast members on hand to help with capturing that special moment too.
Out in California, Cruz Ramirez joins Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater in Cars Land. Guests can pose for pictures and interact with her outside the Cozy Cone Motel on Route 66.
