Disney to Build Cars Land Based on Movie


Those of us who don’t follow the Disney empire that closely might not have heard of the company’s California Adventure theme park. If you’re one of those people, you probably didn’t hear about its grand opening six years ago, right next door to Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif. Obviously, there are a lot of us out there because Adventure Land isn’t doing that well and Disney has decided to pump $1.1 billion into overhauling the park. One way it’s looking to bring in more people: Building Cars Land, based on the popular animated film “Cars.”

There’s no word on what type of rides or attractions Cars Land will have, but you sure would think a movie about cars would be easy to morph into a bunch of amusement park rides.
