Get Ready to Start Your Engines!

It is hard to believe that after years of watching Cars Land at Disney California Adventure coming together, slowly but surely, the new area is finally going to open in just over a month from now.  Easily one of the largest projects that Imagineering has ever taken on, the transformation of California Adventure - in my opinion - hinges on the opening of Cars Land.

And that's for good reason.  The new land is one of the most anticipated additions that any Disney park has made in quite some time.  It also serves as a first for the Cars brand, as they've only been loosely included in the parks before now.  That will most certainly change when Cars Land opens, as it contains multiple rides, attractions, merchandise and food locations all set in a fantastic looking recreation of Radiator Springs.

For those who want to prep before visiting the park, and know the lay of the land beforehand, Disney's new website for Cars Land is the place to check out.  You can cruise down the main drag and stop along the way to learn more about the different offerings. 

One oddity, though.  Anyone else notice how the Cars Land logo on the screen grab above is located directly below the word Disneyland?  With all the cash they've spent on the park you might think they would be proud to replace that with Disney California Adventure!
