While Disneyland will always have a special place in my heart, I must admit that Disney California Adventure may be my favorite of the two parks. Maybe it's because that's where all the Pixar stuff is. Maybe because it seems just a little less crowded and less-hot mid-summer, or maybe it's because I can get a glass of wine - but I just love the vibe of Disney California Adventure.
By now you've heard that Cars Land is opening this Friday. This 12 acre expansion to the park started being built in 2009 and is a re-creation of the iconic town of Radiator Springs. If you are a mom to a boy 10 and under like me, you've probably seen Cars about 1050 times. And now? We get to walk through the town - Flo’s V8 Café, Fillmore’s Taste-In, Cozy Cone Motel, Radiator Springs Curios, Sarge’s Surplus Hut and Ramone’s House of Body Art are all there. Yes, I'm geeking out.
This week, I'm lucky enough to be among first people to check out Cars Land, Carthay Circle and all the other new attractions at the newly remodeled Disney California Adventure park. From inside stories on the planning to reviews of the new attractions and rides, this blog, my Twitter, Instagram and Facebook timeline will be inundated with all things DISNEY for the next 3 days.
And just added, I'll be covering the red carpet for the Cars Land party tonight!
Follow @HipMamaB along as I snap pics of the celebs and maybe even snag a few interviews with the cast of Cars and other celebrities out to celebrate this amazing new area.
