Disney California Adventure celebrates its Cars Land grand opening
Written by Robert Niles
Tonight Disney California Adventure celebrated its celebrity grand opening ceremony for Cars Land. Now, even though the "Grand Opening" was tonight, remember that the new land won't be open to the public until Friday morning. (Disney California Adventure will be closed to the public tomorrow, June 14, for its media day.)Tweet
Larry the Cable Guy, the voice of Mater in the films, walks the red carpet. See Theme Park Insider's Facebook page for the complete red carpet photo gallery.
After the red carpet, everyone made their way down the pathway toward the entrance to Cars Land for the opening ceremony, where Disney Park chief Tom Staggs and Cars director (and Disney Creative Chief) John Lasseter opened the land with a jump start.
Thousands of invited guests pour into Cars Land for the post-premiere party.
We'll be in Anaheim tomorrow for the media day, and Friday morning for the rededication ceremony for Disney California Adventure at 8am. Keep watching Theme Park Insider here on the Web, on Twitter and on Facebook for updates.
