Howdy! Disneyland is unwrapping a very large present on
Disneyland and our friends from Radiator
Springs have something very exciting to show us. I don't know about everyone else, but when the word "Disney" gets
bandied about in my home, a series of happy dances begin to take place. Why not, after all it is the happiest place on earth.
In a move that has been several years in the making, the Disney
Designers and Imagineers have been stored away in a secret hideaway coming up with the next big thing. From the huge success
of the Cars movie franchise, it was only a matter of time before a new theme park would become a reality, dedicated to the
little ones who live for movie characters such as Mater, Sarge, Flo, Luigi and of course Sally Carrera.
Their home in Radiator Springs will be brought to life this June
15th with the usual pomp and circumstance that only Disney can provide.
Whether you want to wander around basking in the California sunshine or riding on some cool new rides,
many options are available. Radiator Springs Racers is a an attraction sure to be a fan favourite for years to come. Take
the wheel and whirl around the tracks of this fun-filled roadway where you can get glimpses of the world from the car's perspective!
Drivers of almost all ages can experience the thrill of putting their pedal to the metal on this imaginative motorway.
Luigi's Flying Tires is a cool new adventure, a case of bumper
cars turned on it's ear and redesigned as only Disney can do. Simply tilt your body in the direction you wish to travel and
the folks at Disney take care of the rest.
not forget all the other world famous rides and attractions that Disneyland has to offer the family vacationer. If cuisine
is your desire, Disneyland has several choices from the fast food to fine dining.
As a self professed aficionado of anything Disney, I am so excited to be heading down
for the Grand Opening of Cars Land. Having traveled to Disney World several times as a child, I can attest to it being considered
the happiest place on earth. One of my fondest memories growing up is being at Disney with my parents and relatives who live
in Florida year round. I can remember going on the Haunted Mansion 4-5 times a day with my Uncle, or riding the Pirates of
the Caribbean Adventure Ride over and over. Some 30 years later, we still talk about it at family gatherings.
The only thing that has changed is that my own family is now
in attendance and the focus of the vacation. Disney World and Disneyland have this ability to make you forget about everything
else and allow you the freedom to become a child all over again. Seeing the looks on their little faces as Mickey Mouse walks
up and says hello, is worth every penny. It has created for them, a lifetime of memories that I hope to share someday with
Disney has perfected in every
sense of the word, "Magic." Everything they touch has a sense of whimsy and bewilderment. I can remember saying
to myself on several occasions, "OMG, how did they do that." The Disney Imagineers leave you wanting more and with
a feeling of happiness and satisfaction. Disney Cars Land should be no different.
If you are looking for the ultimate family trip, Disney World in Orlando, Florida or
Disneyland in Anaheim, California offer a great selection of accommodations for the budget conscious traveler or the, "all-out"
luxury choices like that of the Grand Floridian.
matter the choice, Disney is sure to leave your little ones with a lifetime of memories. Plan yours today!
