June 14 Trip: Radiator Springs - A Happy Place!

I am beyond excited; I can' even explain how happy I am. I just won tickets this morning through my local radio station. The best part is that my daughter has her last day of school on Tuesday, June 12, and I didn't know what to do with her on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Now I do!
We're going to see Cars Land!!!

Update... Trip report starts on Page 2 here.

Yay! But... do you have to go then? It's gonna be super busy, if you could visit weekdays in mid July-mid August I think you'll find crowds quite a bit more manageable.

It is closed to the general public, which why it's such a big deal that we get to go...

I'll keep all of you updated; I'll be getting a phone call (not an email like the Ralph's winners).

Thanks

Okay... just got a phone call!

I got a phone call from someone at the radio station saying that I need to come pick up a winner's sheet at the radio station; I'll also have to fill out a tax form. The winner's sheet will have all the information on it, with directions and I'll need it to get in the park on Thursday.
BUT, it's 3:30 now, and we're actually heading up for our first stay at the VGC, so I can't run down to the station right now.
So, it will have to until Monday! Stay tuned

DCA is closed june 14 to the general public for media previews, so the OP
will get to visit during a private event, so hopefully less crowded.

Thumbs up CONGRATS, Shananana!

See you there!!

Oh, and when you receive information on when the park opens, what special activities will happen during the event, etc please post the details here. I know a bunch of us that won the Special Event passes for the same party from Coca-Cola have not received ANYTHING in terms of details yet.

I thought it was a media preview day, but had no idea there were giveaways taking place to get people in that day. That is pretty sweet prize.
Have a blast OP!
