    Is the Lightning McQueen Racing Academy, which is scheduled to open on March 31, 2019, on track to open on that date? If so, when will it be an available attraction for booking on FastPass+?

    Buckle Up Angela, because you’re in for a wild ride! Lightning McQueen Racing Academy has zoomed its way into Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Mater and company are teaching the techniques of the road to a delighted crowd!

    The new show debuted last week, and from all accounts, it is a delightful primer into the “Cars” racing world. My twin boys are HUGE “Cars” fans, and this is top on our agenda for our upcoming trip in a few weeks. That being said, I tried to book FastPasses (we all know about four-year-old attention spans!), and I was happy to find out that FastPasses are not required. The show runs approximately every 15 minutes throughout the day, so the line moves fairly quickly.

    Once you are “back on track,” steer yourself out to the courtyard and enjoy a jamming dance party with DJ, the ultimate party on wheels! The Pit Crew (Lightning McQueen, Cruz Ramirez and more) will join you several times a day for “Cars”-inspired games and dancing at “DJ’s Ready! Set! Party Time!”

    When you’re all done at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, bang a hard right, jump on Route 66 and head to Radiator Springs at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. Your kids will love the “Cars” courtyard filled with scenes straight out of the movies - Sally’s Cozy Cone Motel is just waiting to be explored!

    Angela, if you have any more questions, please don’t hesitate to come back. See ‘ya on Route 66!
