As cool as this ride is turning out, I am hoping Radiator Springs Racers will blow it out of the water (no pun intended). I am hoping with all these new advanced animatronic movements, we will see the characters in RSRs move more than just their mouths and eyes. With all this new articulating torso technology, maybe we will really see the Cars come alive with that same cartoonieness that they did in the film.

Are the two Cars Land flat rides being installed, in-house creations?

I have a feeling that the animatronics in Carsland will be amazing. I agree with you, as good as these are, Carsland has to be great!

Luigi's Flying Tires is a WDI recreation of the old Flying Saucer Ride that used to be in Disneyland.

As for Mater's Junkyard Jamboree, I'm not too sure. Its the "Same" ride system as the Zamperla's Demolition Derby (which is the same as Lady Bug Boogiein Bugs Land) just on a much bigger scale and it does a few different things (swings out like a whip ride) So it could be either really, it looks like a collaboration with Disney building a better ride off an existing ride technology.

^^I believe he's asking if WDI is designing the attractions or are they being purchased from a 3rd party. IE: Zamperla, Mack etc...

I skipped last weeks update cause there really wasn't much to show. But this week theres a lot, so here we go!
1219574285_S4trq-X3.jpg
The front entrance is really moving along fast!
1219604778_ip9LG-X3.jpg
The red tarps are welder covers so they can work with other people around.
1219603969_ASWjx-X3.jpg
The Carthay Circle Theater is starting to go up too!
1219602118_kaKck-X3.jpg
And the new Disney Theater has all of its sinage up now as well.
1219597631_oYZKF-X3.jpg
The extended queue for Mermaid has trees now!
1219595952_n64Rc-X3.jpg
This is almost done. They've added some wave things, lol.
1219596601_dttYW-X3.jpg
And the Palace of Fine Arts Rotunda is getting its paint job to match the rest of mermaid. I like the new colors.
1219600895_jQRfm-X3.jpg
Here is the concept for the building, looks pretty close to what we're getting.
1219595089_Pbbsf-X3.jpg
Over next to the Swings, they have moved forward with the "Beer Cart" in the foreground of this picture.
1219578056_C7ppT-X3.jpg
Boardwalk Pizza and Pasta is chugging right along as well! Its really looking cool.
1219577513_waz93-X3.jpg
No real change here.
1219576562_CASKf-X3.jpg
Goofy's Sky School's entrance is looking interesting...
1219586181_B9gFs-X3.jpg
1219582313_HUdHk-X3.jpg
Today these planters are red. lol
1219578469_MkHZY-X3.jpg
This seems to be moving a lot slower then everything else.
1219579486_9Xv7o-X3.jpg
But they have the time to take, it isnt impeding any guests like the other areas are.
1219579600_cFxBn-X3.jpg
Looks like they have cleared all the stuff here for prep to finish the base of this.
1219580429_DuTSY-X3.jpg
This doesn't seem to have changed much at all recently. They are probably working a lot around the corner where we cant see.
1219589899_eKYzS-X3.jpg
Three phases of rock work here. Bare Chips, then covered with cement, then painted.
1219598106_JQMk7-X3.jpg
Is this done yet! Sheesh!
1219620326_sTdgL-X3.jpg
And the moment you've all been waiting for, the back side of Cars Land! WooHoo! This picture really shows how massive this is though.
1219585480_PGYh7-X3.jpg
And the last thing, a new Meet-N-Greet has been made for Mater and Lightning.
1219598462_R6PzV-X3.jpg
It actually looks pretty cool, and its advertising Cars 2 thats coming out this year. Its in the perfect spot too.
1219599594_jtVLs-X3.jpg
Pretty creative, I like it! And a lot more people will see it rather then the old one over in Condor Flats.

^ Great update. At the moment I think the entrance is the most important thing to be finished before summer comes so they are really pushing to finish it. I remember seeing pictures from a week ago and the progress is amazing!

Yeah, I agree. Though I know this is simpler building then a ride, I have never seen a major structure such as this be built so quickly at this resort.

I'll have red wine with my slice of donkey.

While the park is still open, too! Plus, it seems now with the one feeder line that entering the park has become EASIER than it was before they shut down half the turnstiles. Hopefully it can stay the same once they have to route everyone back behind Soarin' when the street really starts to get torn up.
