Cars Masters Weekend

June 14, 2014

 

Over the past few years, Downtown Disney has been home to Cars Masters Weekend during Father's Day Weekend. While I have visited the past few years, this morning I woke up bright and early to partake in some of the events that I may find fun.

We got to Downtown Disney around 9:45 in hopes to visit the 10:00 Animation Academy class where they promised to be teaching how to draw some of our favorite Cars characters. Unfortunately, the first class was going to feature Dusty from the Planes films, so we decided to explore the rest of the area until the 11:00 class where Lightning McQueen would be drawn.

While exploring the area we decided to visit three characters from the Cars films. The first two, Lightning McQueen and Mater, can often be found in Disney's Hollywood Studios, but the third, Finn McMissle, is a rarer character to meet so of course we jumped at the opportunity!

After meeting the Cars characters we checked out some of the merchandise for the event. They had phone covers, car flags, shirts, and more:

The Lightning McQueen Animation Academy class was good, although done on picnic tables so they drawing surface wasn't exactly ideal, but still a lot of fun.

There was several other activities for children including a game to put out fires (in preparation for the new Planes: Fire and Rescue), going inside a Firetruck, and more fun!

Overall, there are over 100 cars on display throughout Downtown Disney. Some are muscle cars, other classics, and my favorite, Herbie the Lovebug:
