    We are going to be visiting for the first time in May. My son, 3, loves Pixar Cars and my daughter, 5, loves the new Tangled movie. Are there attractions for these interests? Thanks!

    Hi Sarah,

    A first trip to Disney World is super exciting!  I have some good news for your son and daughter.

    Rapunzel and Flynn Rider from the movie Tangled greet Guests daily at the Fairytale Garden in Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom (MK). This unique play and greet experience begins with kids being given coloring sheets at a table. Rapunzel & Flynn come out and dance around the table with the kids before getting into position for pictures & autographs. Be sure to check the Times Guide when you enter the Magic Kingdom for appearance times on the day of your visit.  Go early for her best chance to be able to participate in the "play" portion of this experience before everyone joins in the line for pictures.

    My boys love Cars too and can't wait to see the new movie this summer.  Your son can meet and have pictures taken with Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater at Disney's Hollywood Studios (DHS).  Of course they can't sign autographs - too hard - pens just get stuck in their tread.  

    They appear daily at Luigi's Garage near the Streets of America.  Although their appearance times vary, they were there continuous for most of the day when we last visited DHS. When you enter the park, be sure to pick up a Times Guide for DHS which will list the times they will be appearing that day.

    Now Git-R-Done and get your son over to DHS to meet Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater and take your daughter to MK to get wrapped up in meeting Rapunzel and Flynn Rider - it will be the best day EVER!  

    Wishing you many magical memories :-)  Allison
