Get Your Kicks on Route 66

Having grown up in California and moved to the Midwest, I've traveled the original Route 66. This tribute to that famous highway can now be traveled in Cars Land.

When John Lasseter and the team of Disney Imagineers announced they were makeing Cars Land at Disney's California Adventure, we knew it would be good. However, nobody knew exactly how good. Let's just say they nailed it. You feel like you've stepped right into Radiator Springs. You see many of the familiar sites seen in Cars and Cars 2, only life size.

The main attraction in Cars Land is Radiator Springs Racers. The vehicles are just that, and you are whisked around Radiator Springs and Ornament Valley Range. You even meet several of the beloved Cars characters throughout your trip.

Anyone who has been on Test Track at EPCOT will notice the similarity of the track, but it stops there. You are so enthralled with being in the world of Lightning McQueen, Mater, Doc Hudson, Sally and the gang, you almost forget you're on an attraction. The best part is when you actually "race" against another vehicle!

I got my kicks on Route 66 in Cars Land!
