Went by this morning, what a great event. A great mix of cars for true "car guys" and things like the General Lee or National Lampoon's Vacation station wagon everyone can enjoy. Saw two fascinating Q&As with with Chip Foose from Overhaulin' (which I've never watched ... but now plan to) and Jay Ward from Pixar. Learned a ton about the creation of Cars and Cars Land. A lot for kids to do. Other than the parking, just a perfect event.

I get a sense it's invite (read as "sponsors") only. But if I end up over there I'll ask around.

R W BJun 12, 2014

So who would I have to contact to put a car in the show? (Future years, too late this year I know)

Curious to hear the Cars guy Sunday morning (I'm the one fanboi who loves that movie), but my plan is to park early, be across the street at Typhoon by noon.

It's a lot of fun! This is a small "event" and refreshingly laid back for WDW.

NearTheEarsJun 12, 2014

I'd like to check it out, just afraid to even attempt to find a parking space.

wdwmagicJun 11, 2014

Indeed. I am surprised they are even attempting it this year.

BoltJun 11, 2014

Still a lot but not the normal full lot shutdowns in the past.

Well, all Cast at DTD has to park at Epcot and be bussed over because of this.

With the already limited parking, I'm surprised they didn't postpone this for a year. Used to get the full capacity lots fairly full.
