Art of Animation Resort Tour – Cars

Today we complete our tour of Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. We had our first glimpse at the Finding Nemo section when the resort first opened. Recently we returned for a walking tour of the three other sections, The Lion King, The Little Mermaid and today we’ll visit Cars.

In fact, it was written off by many as a ridiculous concept done on the cheap. For the record, I’ve always enjoyed the park, but I understand what people were saying, it needed more everything: rides, shows, food, theming, and above all else, it needed more magic. It needed more Disney.

DOC HUDSON IN RADIATOR SPRINGS RACER

Disneyland Resort Annual Passholders were among the first to be allowed behind the wall and into the world of Pixar’s Cars and the town of Radiator Springs.
