Disney Vacation Guide: It’s all things “Cars” in Downtown Disney June 2-3

For the second year in a row, a classic car show with a modern twist and turn is happening in Downtown Disney – Car Masters Weekend. Everything “Cars” is being celebrated at this two-day event which features a car show presented by Hess Express. Enjoy the Lightning McQueen, Finn McMissile and Mater meet and greets! It’s all happening June 2-3.

Vote for your favorite car

Car enthusiasts from the local Muscle Car Network of Central Florida will be displaying more than a hundred classic, exotic and muscle cars for you and your family as well as the judges to take a look at. In this race for “Best in Show” you’ll be able to vote for your favorite car! Prizes will be awarded for People’s Choice and Kid’s Choice awards.

Meet Chip Foose

If you recognize the name of Chip Foose (a legendary automotive designer) you’ll be excited to learn he is one of the guest judges of the car show. Foose helped design Ramone in the Disney Pixar film, “Cars” and he will also be on site to sign his “Cars”-inspired images.

What’s new at Car Masters Weekend

This year, High Performance Karting from the Richard Petty Driving Experience will be taking place during the Car Masters Weekend. See some of the vehicles from the Exotic Driving Experience at Walt DisneyWorld Speedway. Let the kids (and yourself) explore an interactive LEGO zone. There will be “Cars” themed topiaries on hand for the gardening fans to enjoy. If your little ones can’t get enough of the movie, head to AMC Downtown Disney 24 and purchase tickets for a day-long “Cars” and “Cars 2” movie marathon.

Returning events

You’ll have the chance to put the pedal to the metal with Ridemakerz model cars! Get your face painted or have a temporary tattoo applied. Eat a quick meal from a local food truck. See some of GM’s latest Chevs which will be on display, including the Camaro Convertible, the Corvette Grand Sport and the Volt.
