Where Can I Find Lightning McQueen at Disney World?

I often have parents ask me where their kids can see Lightning McQueen at Disney World.  The following are the best places to visit to make any Cars fan happy.

 Disney’s Art of Animation Resort

You will find Disney’s own rendition of Radiator Springs at the Art of Animation Resort.  There is an entire wing focusing on the setting of the Cars film.  Your little one will be thrilled walking down Route 66 and looking at the cast of Cars positioned throughout this wing of the resort.   It is a great place to get some pictures with Lightning McQueen and his friends.  The suites are also decked out in the Cars theme.  You would surely be a hit with your Cars fanatic for staying at this resort.

Cars Character Meet & Greet at Hollywood Studios

You will find Lightning McQueen at the Team McQueen Headquarters located near the Muppet Vision 3D theater at Hollywood Studios.  This is a great place to capture some magical memories of your Cars fan on camera.  Check your guide at Hollywood Studios for meet and greet times.

Lights, Motors, Action!

If the thoughts of high intense chases, explosions, and burning rubber get you excited then you don’t want to miss the Lights, Motors, Action Stunt Show located on the Streets of America at Hollywood Studios.  I have two sons that love the fast paced action of this show.

The show is outdoors and the action takes place on a live set.  You will hear motors roaring and tires squealing as stunt drivers race around the set in cars, motorcycles, and jet skis.  You will also feel the heat from the explosions that take place during this thrilling action.  If you have a child that dislikes loud noises, you can sit farther from the action and not miss a thing.  A director will explain how the stunts are safely carried out.  All stunts are filmed so the director can show how these scenes are put together to make the chases look realistic for the movies.

This is a great place to see Lightning McQueen in action as he makes a special guest appearance.  Check your guide at Hollywood Studios for showtimes.


I would be glad to help you plan a magical Disney vacation.  Contact me today for a no obligation quote.
