Updated: Jan 18, 2019


The world of Pixar’s Cars is finally coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios on March 31st, 2019. Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy will be a brand new show for the park at the end of Sunset Blvd in between Tower of Terror and Rock ‘n Roller Coaster. The show will be housed inside Sunset Showcase. The same venue previously used for the Club Villain dining event.


‘Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy will welcome you inside the world of Pixar’s Cars films, bringing you face to face with racing legend Lightning McQueen. You’ll be part of the next generation of rookie racers, and you’ll learn the rules of the road from Lightning’s years of experience. This will be the untold story of Lightning McQueen – as told by Lightning McQueen!’

Disney has also previously stated that a special meet and greet will be located in the courtyard of the theater featuring Cruz Ramirez. It is said to be exactly the same as the previous chatacater experience with Cruz that was previously located at the end of the now gone Pixar Place.
