Grand Opening of Cars Land, Buena Vista Street and Carthay Circle Theatre on June 15, 2012

As construction continues on Cars Land, the Disneyland Resort has announced that the new 12-acre land and its three new family attractions at Disney California Adventure park will open to the public on June 15, 2012. Cars Land will immerse guests in the thrilling world of the Disney¥Pixar blockbuster “Cars” film franchise as they step into the town of Radiator Springs.

Disneyland just announced that the highly anticipated Cars Land, along with Buena Vista Street, and Carthay Circle Theater will be opening on June 15, 2012, just in time for the summer season.

The addition of Cars Land expands Disney California Adventure by 12 acres.  Guests can enjoy three attractions, dining, and shopping in this area that has been completely transformed into the fictional town of Radiator Springs.

According to their press release:

[quote style="boxed"]One of the largest and most elaborate attractions ever created for a Disney park, Radiator Springs Racers is a twisting, turning, high-speed adventure through Ornament Valley and the town of Radiator Springs. Luigi’s Flying Tires invites guests to glide on air aboard special tires, whirling around with their pals. At Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree, guests will whip around behind a baby tractor and enjoy tunes from a giant jukebox built from Mater’s most prized possessions.[/quote]

As the mom to a Cars-loving little boy, I am really looking forward to this addition!
