Disney announced on it’s Disney Parks Blog today that a new show is coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios called ‘Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy’. Disney stated that the new show will begin in early 2019 and be located near the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster. Disney’s official description of this ride is listed below.
“At Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy, located near Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster, you’ll come face-to-face with racing legend Lightning McQueen, who is excited to showcase what he’s learned over the years with you – the next generation of rookie racers. Of course, as Lightning McQueen has discovered throughout his career, things don’t always go according to plan, and he has to think fast to get back on course. With friends Tow Mater, Cruz Ramirez and the gang from Radiator Springs on his side, Lightning gears up for the challenge.”
This sounds like it might be very entertaining, especially if they will be adding any new animatronics like the ones they have in Cars Land in Disneyland into the new show (fingers crossed). In the case you haven’t seen those animatronics yet Inside the Magic has a great video of the awesome animatronics.
New Concept Art Released
In other news, Disney also revealed new concept art for Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, which will also open sometime in 2019, on it’s Disney Park Blog site. You can see the new image and Disney’s description below.
“The attraction will totally immerse guests in a cartoon world and will feature a new catchy theme song created especially for the attraction.
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.”
