    We will be celebrating my son's 4th birthday in November. He is obsessed with Lightning McQueen and cars in general. I heard Disney Hollywood Studios has Lightning McQueen. Any other car attractions? Character dining? I want to make his bday magical. TYIA

    Hey there Tanya, and a great big welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Let's take a road trip to check out some great attractions for your little guy at Walt Disney World.

    Disney's Hollywood Studios is the perfect place to start our quest to find Lightning McQueen. You can meet Lightning and his best pal Mater near the Streets of America, then cheer them on in the the Lights, Motors, Action Extreme Stunt Show. Just note that this show has lots of revving engines and some explosions, so if your little guy doesn't like loud noises you might want to skip this one.

    Over at the Magic Kingdom you'll find one of my son's all-time favorite attractions, the Tomorrowland Speedway. He loves to steer his racecar while Dad mans the gas pedal. It's nice and slow, but your little guy will feel like he's zipping around the track.

    At Epcot, go ahead and stop by Test Track. There's a 40-inch height requirement to ride, but if your son doesn't quite measure up, that's ok. You can go around to the ride exit and play interactive games, see concept cars and take your picture with the newest models.

    If you have time, hop on a bus to Disney's Art of Animation Resort to see larger-than-life figures of Lightning, Mater and all their Radiator Springs neighbors in the resort's "Cars" courtyard. Ka-chow!

    I hope this helps you have a Cars-tastic time at Walt Disney World, Tanya. Please visit us again if you have any other questions. We love to help!

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
