Making a Pit Stop

In Cars Land, there are a ton of places to feed your appetite! If you’re looking for a sit down 50’s style restaurant, I’d suggest trying Flo’s V8 Café located directly across from The Cozy Cone Motel. Flo’s V8 Café offers Rotisserie Specialties such as Roast Beef or Turkey sandwiches, a Citrus Turkey Salad, chicken, ribs, and more.

Ready, Set, Race!

If you’re looking to enjoy your time in Cars Land with some rides, I’d suggest starting with riding Radiator Springs Racers! To put into perspective for you Walt Disney World folks, Racers is much like Test Track in Epcot. Radiator Springs Racers puts you in the driver’s seat and submerges you into the movie itself! Take on the adventures alongside Mater and McQueen while racing to the finish line at the end!Best Tips for Visiting Cars Land at Disney's California Adventure I’d HIGHLY suggest getting a FastPass right away, the wait always exceeds an hour at any time of the day! Across the way from Flo’s V8 Café is where Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters lives. When riding, you take part in the dancing of the cars while riding in Luigi’s dancing cousins, mini fiats. When you’re either leaving Cars Land or just coming in, you’ll come across Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree! This high-speed attraction whips you around like no tomorrow while riding in one of Mater’s good old friends, a tractor!Best Tips for Visiting Cars Land at Disney's California Adventure
