INNSIDE SCOOP: CARS LAND MERCHANDISE PREVIEW!
Just in case you didn't know, Cars Land will be opening to the general public on June 15. In the mean time, Annual Passholders who can't wait until then to start spending money on Cars Land Merchandise (this guy) had a chance to do so during the Merchandise Preview event ;). The event was held in Stage 17 in the Hollywood Pictures Backlot in DCA and you had to show your Annual Pass along with a picture ID to enter. There is a small display outside that shows the majority of the merchandise available for purchase. It looked like Disney expected a lot of people by the amount of empty space they had inside. There were also plenty of cashiers to help out guests with their purchases. Here is a preview of the costumes for Buena Vista Street: After ElecTRONica powers down, The Mad T Party will take its place. There was a small section that showcased the costumes and merchandise as well, but none were available for purchase. They did have some samples of the special food and drink items that will be available at the Mad T Party including Dill-Flavored Popcorn (?) and Cotton Candy-flavored and Granny Apple-flavored frozen drinks. I wasn't a big fan of the popcorn, but the Cotton Candy drink was pretty good. Heres a picture of the costumes for Cars Land: Lightning McQueen and Mater were available for a photo op And now for the Cars Land and California Adventure merchandise! One last look at the preview area That will do it for this update. Thanks for stopping by and see you at DCA & CARS LAND! Cheers, Tom-Mater
