Summer in Orange County – Disneyland and Cars Land!
Now what would summer in Orange County be without a family trip to Disneyland Resort? A favorite of locals with annual passes wanting a dose of Disney during hot summer nights in Orange County, Disneyland Resort is, of course, a dream destination for children and families around the world. Being SoCal locals, there really is nothing that defines summer in Orange County more than the influx of ready-to-be-Disneyfied visitors that flock to Anaheim, CA between May and August each year. We are so lucky to have it in our back yard and to be able to share it with so many people! This year your Orange County summer trip to Disneyland Resort also offers you a brand new attraction – Cars Land.
Based on the Pixar animated soon-to-be-classic Cars, Cars Land is located in Disney California Adventure Park and features three main attractions. The first is Radiator Springs Racers, a six person car race between competing vehicles taking you around hair pin turns and down steep hills. Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree, the second big attraction, is themed on Mater’s Junkyard as well as the fields with baby tractors from the first Cars film. Visitors climb into vehicles that move and groove in glorious fashion to the music playing. It has been described as similar to the Mad Tea Party at Disneyland without the dizziness inducing spinning. The third and final main attraction for Cars Land is Luigi’s Flying Tires, which takes its cue from an original Disneyland attraction, Flying Saucers. Guests will glide back and forth around the ride area on a cloud of air, somewhat like pucks on an air hockey table! Talk about inventive!
Cars Land was opened to the public on June 15th of this year, so gather up the family and head out for some summer fun in Orange County. Lines are sure to be long for a new Disney “Land” so you should also be prepared to get to know your fellow queue mates very well during the 3-5 hour wait!
