Disney Announces New Cars Themed Experience for Hollywood Studios  

In a somewhat surprising announcement, Disney has just officially released news of a new show coming to Hollywood Studios next year. The experience, named Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy has been announced as a show that will feature guest interaction. 

Unfortunately, very few details have been shared about the project but it was just officially announced in a media event presentation set up by the company. 

Personally, I don’t see this being a vastly large scale show but at the same time could be something great for young children. It’s a far stretch from the Cars Land rumors which rolled out years ago, but it will be great to see Cars officially back as a part of the magic over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Unfortunately, that’s about all we know at this point, but we’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available. The same presentation shared a bit more information on Star Wars Land which really focused on the interactive aspect of the land and how guest choices will dictate their experience in the land. Disney seems to be really pushing the interactive elements of these new experiences coming to the parks, but have been fairly tight lipped on the actual details of the interactive elements. Either way, I am all for interactivity in the parks. Not only does it showcase productivity and ingenuity, but also allows guests to be involved with the story. Story has been a huge part of Disney since the beginning and this should take things one step further!    

We’ll keep you updated as these new projects unfold and continue to develop in the coming year!
