Disney Cars ride – Click above for image gallery

When we were but knee-high auto obssessives, our two favorite rides at Disney World were Space Mountain and Indy Speedway. One gave us a genuine feeling of speed while the other let us pretend for a few fleeting moments that our driver's license wasn't quite so far away. Now it looks like youngin's out there will have a new car-themed attraction to check out in the Magic Kingdom, or more specifically, Disney's California Adventure Park. Motor World Hype has managed to get their hands on a few quick shots of the amusement park's new Cars-themed ride.

Called Radiator Springs Racers, the attraction is set to open sometime in 2012. In addition to the marginally-creepy looking cars in this particular ride, Disney is planning a whole section of the park dedicated to the Pixar film. The opening should coincide nicely with the Summer 2011 release of Cars 2... and it may just give us still-car-obsessed adults a good reason to revisit our youth.

      Ugh.. that smile on the bumper is scary. It makes those garbage trucks in Soylent Green looks like cute bunnies.

      This is just a version of the Test track ride at Epcot but with a Cars theme..

      Now people can finally ride in a car that has a big dumb grin on its face!

      Oh wait. . .

      I always felt like they should have made the headlights as the car's eyes. Not the windshield, it look stupid.
        • 4 Years Ago
        It would look even stupider if the headlights were the eyes.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I'm with you. Everybody knows a car's eyes are the headlights. Its face is in the front, not on the windshield Disney! For this I have boycotted Cars....

      Carsland and Radiator Springs Racers (this ride) are in Disney's California Adventure at Disneyland Resort in California. There will be no Cars ride at Disney World in Florida.

        as soon as I saw the ferris wheel in the background, I could tell it was in CA. Oh well, can't expect car bloggers to pick up the details us disneyholics do ;-)

      Does anyone else see this car saying something like,"Heh, I'm a Ferrari"?
        • 4 Years Ago
        The Ferrari was a cameo character in the first movie. Luigi the Fiat 500 was obsessed with Ferraris and a Ferrari F430 came into the shop to get new tires. Pretty funny scene.

        Here's the clip:

      Those headlights are supposed to be stickers!
        • 4 Years Ago
        Why? This isn't NASCAR!...
        • 4 Years Ago
        Car #1-Only on the Piston Cup racers, cause the track is always lit!

        Car #2-Yeah, so's my brother but he still needs headlights!
