It’s almost time for one of my favorite special events of the year. Downtown Disney’s Car Masters Weekend. Held over Father’s Day weekend June 14-15 the entire shopping and dining district takes on the flavor of a classic car show with a modern twist–Car Masters Weekend features all things “Cars” plus special celebrity appearances, interactive exhibits, unique event merchandise and entertainment the whole family will enjoy.
On Downtown Disney West Side, guests can enjoy exploring the details and classic beauty of more than 100 classic, muscle and exotic vehicles from across the country. Fans also can judge their favorites along with the experts, culminating in an award ceremony Sunday. Joining in the “Cars” fun, Richard Petty Driving Experience at Walt Disney World Speedway will be unveiling two new full-size custom character cars, created by Disney•Pixar “Cars” creative director Jay Ward. The #28 Aiken Axler and #80 Sage VanDerSpin cars will be used in the new Piston Cup Junior Ride-Along program, available for bookings beginning June 14. Disney•Pixar “Cars” and “Cars 2″ characters Lightning McQueen, Mater and Finn McMissle also will be stopping by the event for meet and greets.
