Disney put out this video getting into the details for the Lighting McQueen's Racing Academy attraction coming to Hollywood Studios, & honestly, I'm a little let down. The description given sounds pretty much exactly like Turtle Talk with Crush . Which if you're not familiar is an attraction at The Seas with Nemo & Friends in EPCOT, where you sit in a theater & talk to a giant screen with Crush the turtle. He interacts with the audience questions via an actor behind the screens, with the animation keeping up in real time. Giving us the illusion of actually speaking to Crush. It's an alright concept, the little ones love it, but I'm not sure they love it enough to throw in what sounds like an exact carbon copy with Lightning McQueen replacing Crush, only one park away. I was excited for a Cars attraction. Lord knows how much I love Cars & Cars 3 , but this let me down a little. I was really hoping for something new. I'll definitely still check it out, just in hope of being pleasantly surprised. After this I'm not holding my breath though. What do y'all think? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
With the opening of Toy Story Land this weekend Disney Parks Blog wanted to make sure we knew there was still more to come. First, they released this friggin awesome concept art for Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railroad , the ride that will replace one of my all time favorites, Ghe Great Movie Ride . This was the first reveal for the ride car, & it came with this setup: "The fun begins when you see the premiere of a new cartoon short with Mickey and Minnie preparing for a picnic. As they head out, they drive alongside a train and find out that the engineer is Goofy. Then, one magical moment lets you step into the movie and on Goofy's train for a wacky, wild ride." This ride sounds like it's going to be totally amazing the more we hear. It should be too. This is the first time Mickey gets a proper attraction, & it all started with a mouse. I'm so excited for this one to finally get finished. The second big announcement came in the form of Lightning McQueen's Racing Academy . A first of it's kind show, debuting early 2019 & located by Aerosmith's Rocking Rollercoaster where you'll come face to face with Lightning McQueen. He'll showcase the things he's learned over the years with all of his friends from Radiator Springs. They're being pretty vague on this one. Which honestly makes me even more curious. Anytime Disney says first of it's kind, you know you're in for something special. Anyway, what do y'all think of this awesome news? Put it in the comments, like & share.
