It’s time to get revved up at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, as Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy is set to debut this Sunday, 31st March 2019.
We’ve now learnt that the Cars-themed show will be a 10 minute long experience where you will see Lighting McQueen, live on stage in Audio-Animatronic form, where he’ll share his racing knowledge – and if there’s one thing he’s learned over the years is that things don’t always go as planned. However, it won’t just be Lightning McQueen, but also Mater, Cruz Ramirez and other friends from Radiator Springs, will interact with No. 95 via the 200 foot wide, 2 story tall, wraparound screen.
And that’s not where the Cars-themed fun ends, as Guests can meet Piston Cup champion Cruz Ramirez in the Cars Courtyard, and Lightning McQueen’s Pit Crew will also arrive several times a day for “DJ’s Ready! Set! Party Time!” which invites guests to gather around DJ for “Cars”-inspired dancing and games.
But this is of course just the first part of a stellar year for Disney’s Hollywood Studios, that celebrates its 30th Anniversary on May 1st with the new projection show “Wonderful World of Animation”.
And in terms of DSNY Newscast, I’ll be doing an in-depth review of Lighting McQueen’s Racing Academy (most likely on Monday), and I’ll be IN ORLANDO to cover the 30th Anniversary of Disney’s Hollywood Studios on location!
