Lightning McQueen's Racing Academy at Hollywood

One of the most iconic characters in Disney's history, Lighting McQueen – or Lightning McQueen, as we know it in Brazil – has an attraction of its own at Disney's Hollywood Studios, Lightning McQueen's Racing Academy!

It's impossible not to have fun and adventure with McQueen and his friends.

Therefore, Disney decided to present, let's say, the franchise's fans: a totally detailed, technological and very interesting attraction!

Lightning McQueen's Racing Academy opened to the public on March 31, 2019, yet it arrived as part of Hollywood's 30th anniversary celebration.

Amazingly, it opened even before the debut of the new Star Wars area.

For those who are passionate about this universe of cars, the attraction is more than recommended. Come see more details!

The show it lasts for ten minutes (pretty little, go!) and visitors will then be able to come face to face with McQueen.

That is, when they enter the theater, they will be invited to be the new pilots.

With a giant curved screen, more than 15 meters high and approximately 60 meters wide, people will feel very close to the character.

He will guide everyone on the path of discovering how to be the legend of the tracks and championships.

The entire plot is based on an original story that, chronologically, takes place after the events of the third movie in the saga, Cars 3.

The high technology aimed at production is impressively incredible. The details are also jaw-dropping.

The famous car will tell you about all your racing knowledge and, besides, it will show that not everything is as easy as it looks, isn't it?

It was with the help of Mater, Cruz Ramirez and other friends that he managed to come back on top and never give up.

Can you imagine participating in a race with the legendary?

This is very possible, after all, we are talking about Disney and Cars. But whoever thinks that the show ends there is a mistake.

After leaving the auditorium, visitors will be able to have even more fun! You, Cruz Ramirez and a DJ, how about that?

Well, that's where it is: on the outside of the attraction, in a courtyard, the “novice riders” are allowed to meet Ramirez and, of course, take a picture with the trainer. Good thing!

More details of the show

The hours are varied, so the tip is to keep an eye on the park's schedule.

Get your Parks Tickets at a Discount

Many people leave to buy their tickets arriving in Orlando or even on the day of the park.

We do not in any way recommend that you do this for a variety of reasons, such as:

If you buy tickets on the spot, you won't be able to book your park days in advance at the risk of not even being able to enter a park on a given day.

You will lose valuable park minutes in line to buy your tickets.

AND MAINLY, you will pay more because tickets at the box office are more expensive than buying in advance!
