Getting into the #HalloweenTime Spirit in Cars Land at #Disneyland #Cars3Bluray

Disney California Adventure

On October 9 – 11 I attended a Disney Press Event. My hotel and airfare and meals were taken care of while I was in L.A. Opinions and observations as well as recaps and such are all my own. This post will also contain some affiliate links to Amazon.com.

On the very first night of my #ThorRagnarokEvent adventure we loaded up into a couple of shuttles and headed from the hotel to Disneyland to spend the evening. Our mission, to check out everything going on in Cars Land. This year is the very first year that Cars Land has been converted to a Halloween theme, or rather Haul-O-Ween, as part of the overall park HalloweenTime theme. Cars Land did things a little differently and it looked fantastic. I have a ton of photos from the experience which was made all the better with our own personal Disneyland guide who took us all over the Disney California Adventure Park and also into Disneyland Park. We were in for an amazing night of fun.

We were broken into three groups according to what type of rides we did or did not want to do. Mostly it was for anyone who did not want to do the Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout which was made into Guardians of the Galaxy: Monsters After Dark. I was in the group that opted not to ride that particular ride. I just know that I can get a little queasy on rides like that and I wanted to have the best night I could because who knows, It may take another 15 years for me to come back again. Yeah, it has been 15 years since I’ve been to Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. Allison and I went when we were out for a wedding. A lot has changed in that time.

One of the things that changed was the creation of Cars Land. This is something that wasn’t there back then. The first Cars movie hadn’t even been released back then. Cars was released in 2006. When it was I made sure to get every single one of the character toy cars to save for the kids. When they were old enough to appreciate them I gave them my collection. They have been Cars fans ever since. Andrew and Eva even came with me to a Cars 3 sneak preview screening of the movie in Boston this past June. Now Cars 3 is about to hit Digital (Today 10/24) and Bluray (11/7) and we can enjoy the movie all over again. I personally thing it is the best of the three movies in the series.

Cars 3 Racing to Digital Download October 24th

cars 3 Blu-ray

Cars 3 was one of the best movies of the whole franchise. I really enjoyed seeing it with the kids when I took them earlier this year. We enjoyed a nice evening in Boston together and everyone loved the movie. There were some great new characters like Cruz Ramirez as well as the returning ones. This movie got back to the feel of the original and made for a nice story about perseverance and believing in yourself. It also spoke to knowing your own limits and when it was time to train up the next generation. Well, the movie is coming to Digital on October 24th and then Blu-ray soon afterward on November 7th. You can pick it up and watch it with your own pit crew. More details on the release below.
