Rounding out weeks of excitement surrounding Cars Land, Buena Vista Street, and the completion of the 5-year Disney California Adventure and Disneyland Resort enhancement project, today we take a trip back to the event that started all the hype as Disney rolled out the red carpet to Radiator Springs.
On the evening of June 13, 2012, celebrities and Disney executives posed for pictures and stopped for interviews during the the grand opening celebration of Cars Land. In attendance were celebrity voices from Pixar’s “Cars” films including Larry the Cable Guy, Bonnie Hunt, Cheech Marin, Jenifer Lewis, John Ratzenberger, and more.
In addition to top Disney executives, other celebrities walking the carpet included Vincent Martella (the voice of Phineas from “Phineas & Ferb”), Bella Thorne and Zendaya from Disney Channel’s “Shake It Up”, and actors from ABC’s “Modern Family,” among others. Many stopped to share their thoughts with us on Cars Land, as a fitting wrap-up to all our stories on the Disney California Adventure expansion:
