Cars Land Construction

Disney California Adventure is currently undergoing some serious construction in advance of it’s June 15th opening of Cars Land.  A large park expansion has taken place to bring the popular Pixar Cars films to life. Over the past couple of months, Disney has released a bunch of behind the scenes videos that give us a glimpse of what to expect from the upcoming attraction. Check them out!

Some people think that mountains are formed by plate tectonics, a process that usually takes millions of years. When it came to building Ornament Valley — the mountain range that serves as the backdrop to Radiator Springs in Cars Land at Disney California Adventure park — we just didn’t have that kind of time! So, we did what comes naturally to us at Disney and we hired the best rockwork artisans in the business. Check out this video with Zsolt Hormay, our rockwork art director, as he explains the process and what it takes to speed up Mother Nature.

In this video, Billy Hill and the Hillbillies are recording a variation of one of these songs — one that will be heard as background music throughout the town of Radiator Springs. Guests will be able to enjoy this in person as they explore the exciting new Cars Land when it opens June 15.
