Today Disney formally announced their plan to enter a Cars Land inspired float in the 124th annual Rose Parade. The float will definitely be a crowd pleaser featuring a bouncing tire from Luigi’s Flying Tires, a bubbling “Original Radiator Spring”, a real waterfall, baby tractors, a recreation of Ornament Valley, the Cozy Cones and Cars characters – Lightning McQueen, Sally, Luigi and Guido – in floral representations.
Cars Land opened at Disney California Adventure park this past June and features an amazing recreation of Radiator Springs, the fictional town which the Disney/ Pixar movie Cars was set in.
We were first tipped off early last week that Disney was planing on entering a Cars Land inspired float by an online article featuring an interview with the float builder, however Disney remained quiet on these plans until today.
Disneyland also entered a float for the opening of the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror attraction at California Adventure and for the 50th anniversary of Disneyland in 2005. Disneyland also put the 50th Anniversary Rose Parade float on display in the Esplanade, between the two parks, for the week following the parade – it is not yet known if Disney will do the same following the 2013 Rose Parade.
You can have your first chance to see the Cars Land float during the the 124th Annual Tournament of Roses Parade which will air live on New Years Day, January 1, 2013.
