Are they handed out in Carsland or at the gates?

We have always gotten them at the various shops in Cars Land for answering trivia questions.

When we went in October there was CM walking around with bags full of them. They said back then that pink was rare so hopefully we can find one in Feb!

We got 2 (one red and one pink) from a CM in Flo's 3 weeks ago- she was behind the counter where they actually give you the food and pulled them from under the counter so I'd guess they had a bunch of them under there.

I've never heard about these buttons. How/why do you get them?

They're a group of 6 (?) buttons (large round ones-same size as the ones you get at character meals or the birthday buttons etc) that CMs in Carsland hand out. They have unique Cars characters on them. The Red is Speedy McMuffler, there's Princess Diamondlane, Blue Turbobird, the Green one is something Hybrid, yellow is a Taxi etc. There's another thread around here somewhere with the names and colors for each one.

When CL first opened, it seemed like these were being given out in stores and by roving CMs for answering Cars trivia questions and getting the whole set was a big deal. Over the course of last fall they became more common and now there's no trivia aspect anymore (unless the CM feels like it). They're available in the shops (not for sale-just ask) or CMs hand them out (see my post above about Flo's). I've even seen CMs walking up and down Route 66 with bags of them.

Back in dec we were given a red one -- a CM in Flo's noticed that my toddler was being really patient, and offered it to him. It was in her pocket.

The Mater button is part of the new set of four buttons that are currently (assuming they've gotten more) being handed out at Carsland. The OP in this thread was asking about the original set of six buttons that were being handed out when Carsland opened (and for quite a while afterwards). That set was phased out and the new buttons introduced in early-October.
