Hype Video: Virtual Drive Through Of Disney’s “Cars Land”

Posted on 06.29.11 | admin No Comments

I have been excited about the upcoming “Cars Land” at Disney’s California Adventure as soon as I learned of its development but the wait is horrible!  Watching Cars 2 just made it worse!  What does help however is this neat little virtual drive through released by Disney of what Cars Land will look like once it is completed in 2012.  Remember this is a “virtual” drive through so naturally the real thing will have a lot more detail but this is a cool way to get a feel for what the layout will be.
