As if we needed another reason to get excited about “Cars 3” comes news from Walt Disney World that a promotional tour will arrive at Disney Springs starting this weekend to celebrate the new release from Disney•Pixar!
The “Road to the Races” nationwide tour kicks off March 23-26, 2017 at Disney Springs Marketplace and will feature a special sneak peek at the eagerly anticipated third entry in the mega-popular franchise. Lightning McQueen returns in an action-packed sequel with a host of new and returning characters that fans can get to know at this special event with a unique photo opportunity with three life-size character cars!
Disney Parks Blog has the scoop on what to expect:
Alamo Rent A Car will sponsor a giant color mural; Coppertone will encourage guests to take part in a racer pit crew tire-changing activity and a fun photo opportunity; Crest and Oral-B will pass out prizes from the Piston Cup prize wheel (I hope I win a new toothbrush!) and will offer fans the chance to create a digital postcard with Lightning McQueen; at the Dole Refueling Station, you can sample high-octane smoothies; Mattel plans to present an interactive play area; and last, but not least, NASCAR will be on hand to share the history and science behind their iconic brand.
During your visit, keep an eye out for “Cars” merchandise and special menu items at select food and beverage locations, plus a DJ dance party with tracks that will make you want to rev up your engine.
