Christmas at Cars Land in Disney’s California Adventure

| November 22, 2014 | Reply

Cars Land at Christmas contains a wealth of incredibly clever decorations,  all themed around car parts, of course.  I visited Cars Land this year in the second week of November but it was a few days before November 13, 2014, the official date for Christmas at Disneyland Resort.  If you are in the area, race to Cars Land, but instead of going to Radiator Springs Racers, spend some quality time enjoying the imaginative decorations.

Photos taken at night of the garlands above Route 66 don’t adequately show the details so here is a close up of one garland taken at dusk.  Look closely at the stars.

Luigi’s Flying Tires has added lights strung from a tower of, what else, tires.

And don’t miss the tail light “poinsettias” along the side of Luigi’s.

Flo’s V8 Cafe added garlands but looking at them closely shows that they too use air filters.

Air filters have taken over even the wreath on Radiator Springs Town Hall.

The Cozy Cone Motel was one of my favorite decorated locations.

Ramon’s House of Body Art even gets into the mood.

And, of course, there is a Christmas Tree.  The tree is in front of the town hall and a PhotoPass photographer waits ready to take your Cars Land-themed Christmas portrait.

It’s tempting to close this post with a snide remark about how one of the best aspects of the Cars Land Christmas decorations is that none show any Frozen influence.  I am glad that Disneyland has not let Frozen invade Cars Land but I don’t want my final thoughts about the highly inventive decorations at Cars Land to be about Frozen for these decorations need no help.  This was my first trip to Disneyland at Christmas or otherwise.  I enjoy all the decorations at that theme park in Florida but the creativity behind the Cars Land decorations blew me away.   Cars Land is an incredible land with or without the Christmas overlay but their addition alone merits a visit.
