Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy is Almost Here!

Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy is Almost Here!

The first of many exciting new attractions coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios this year is making its official debut on March 31. Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy, which will be located in Sunset Showcase near Rock’N’Roller Coaster, is a unique interactive show like no other.

Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy is a dazzling combination of state-of-the-art projections and audio animatronics made up with nine projectors and an animatronic Lightning McQueen, which is the most complex audio animatronic ever created at Disney.

The experience begins with an entertaining 3 – 5 minute long pre-show with Cars-related trivia questions and an all-new song performed by Tow Mater as he welcomes Lightning McQueen to the stage.

As the show starts, guests will come face-to-face with McQueen in a world-class training facility. Lightning’s goal is to share the experience he has had throughout his career to the audience, which is filled with rookie racing enthusiasts. He teaches all of the tips and tricks he learned on his journey to becoming a racing legend, with special appearances from Tow Mater, Cruz Ramirez and more Radiator Springs pals.

The party continues after the show in the Sunset Showcase courtyard, where Radiator Springs’ resident party animal hosts “DJ’s Ready! Set! Party Time!” Families can join DJ as he pumps up the crowd with an awesome music mix nd Cars-inspired dances and games. Guests can also meet and pose for pics with Cruz Ramirez outside of the Academy during the high energy after party.

Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy is just one of several big things happening at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in its 30th anniversary year. Still to come in 2019 is Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, an all-new nighttime spectacular called “Wonderful World of Animation” and the long-awaited Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
