Wasn't there a rumor not too long ago that CarsLand was going in at DHS that was "totally happening" according to many blogs? Ultimately, nothing was announced...

I would not get my hopes up for any big news. It could just be an announcement to talk about Magicbands.

I never understood the allure of a Carsland.

If I was Disney I would have more considered opennig a Monster INc. Land.
You'd' have more ability to interact _ Castmembers etc.

There a number of things you could have made(laugh floor etc)

Real monsters in the our world

Door travel ride virtual where you are being chased and enter doorways to escape, being virtual they could have the ride change each time depending what doors you go through.

i love hs but agree that it can use something new. toy story is such a big hit that no one can get near it. they need another one of those. maybe a roller coster that is not cork/screw. or a new water flume ride. wow, that would be a great addition.

i wonder how much unused land wdw has at hs???

To bad they can't close and remodel the meet and greet area across from
TSM to create a second TSM. Kinda like the dual flying dumbos in the new Fantasyland. Two rides would free up a lot of traffic plus it would easier to move a meet and greet.

They could remove the south half of the parking lot and build a replacement lot in the area between the present north half lot and Victory Way and build on the present south half of the parking lot. That would also require moving the present main parking entrance.

EDIT- Looking at it closer, just moving the DHS entrance road and toll plaza frees up plenty of space to expand.

WHAT?! Carsland is absolutely amazing! Every little thing immerses you in the world of Cars. It is by far the best "themed" land in California. Tons of interaction available as full size Lightning Mcqueen, Mater, the firetruck and even the Hot Rods from the first movie, all drive out and pose for pictures. Moving Big eye windshields and everything.

This land is worth a Trip to DLR all by itslef. And you may have to spend your whole trip there to ride anything due to its insane popularity! I don't know if they will build it in Florida though because it was reportedly the most expensive land Disney has ever done. I think they will leave it unique to DLR.

Maybe WDW could do an Incredibles ride?! I loved that movie and think an indiana jones type ride where Syndromes robot is chasing you throughout the city as the incredibles try to stop it, would be FANTASTIC!

Carsland is one of the major reasons I would like to travel to California for our next trip. It sounded super fun to me!
