In less than two weeks Cars Land will open at Disney California Adventure along side of Buena Vista Street.  The entire theme park will be closed on June 14, 2012, the day before Cars Land opens to the general public, for a major media event.  And Disney announced earlier today that they will be providing a live webcast of the grand opening event on the official parks blog.
The DisneylandLive Blog will also be providing comprehensive coverage in a live blog the day of the media events as well.

We are only a few days away from the completion of the Disney California Adventure makeover and the opening of both Cars Land and Buena Vista Street!

    I encourage you to select the maximum number of guests (4), and use the comments field here, or your favorite forum community, to assist others who didn’t win a favorable date or who lost in the drawing. Let’s help each other this Holiday season!

  • I have a family of 5. What am I supposed to do?!

      I agree that this is a problem for those with groups larger than four. My immediate suggestion would be to enter multiple AP holders (if you have more than one in your group) so that your chances of attending the same show are increased. If any in your group are under the age of three they may not need a reservation – as they also don’t require a ticket for admission, although you may want to contact guest relations to be sure about that for this particular event.

      • I did contact guest relations with a few questions and we determined our best bet was for both my husband and I to enter for only one time on one day so that if we both win, we can attend the show together. Bummed, but hopeful. =)

      I was notified that one of my entries was selected. Extra thankful that it was my preferred date and time, 5:30p with Disney legend Dick Van Dyke reading from scripture!

      You should be notified either way. I know of many people who received an email telling them that they were not selected. Make sure to check your spam folders

    We didn’t get any tickets either 🙁 Anyone know if its even worth it to try general admission?

    • ManuelMendoza65

      It is definitely worth a try. We attended the last 2 years as GA and while it is brutal on the legs it all went away once the event started. The queue starts forming early along Main Street next to the sidewalk. Once the seats are filled with people who have tickets they fill in behind with standing room only.

    Would love it if anyone had two extra seats for me. This would be such a blessing and I’d appreciate it so much. Thanks!

  • Saw it for the first time last night by waiting 90 minutes. Not much different from a parade wait. What a magnificent presentation! Disney knows how to open the tear ducts!
