Day 983 - Cars Land Grand Opening - the red carpet

The happiest place on Earth just got happier ...

... paricularly for me on the Red Carpet.

From 2007-2012 the Disneyland Resort has been expanding and evolving, to include new attractions, not the least of which is Cars Land.  In one of the biggest expansions in 57 years, Disney Carlifornia Adventure Park has been transformed with a very exciting new ride and convincing replica of Route 66 from the movie Cars.  I was lucky enough to be at the Grand Opening, and I've got to tell you, it's all pretty damn spectacular.  Before I go into too much detail about Cars Land itself, let's take a look at who was on the Red Carpet ...


My afternoon didn't start well with a wardrobe emergency and the need to go to my back up outfit (damn you ill fitting dress). After a calming glass of French champagne from Downtown Disney I felt better, and we made our way to the gleaming new red carpet and lined up with the rest of the print press.  We took one side of the path of glamour, as the TV and video press lined the other. I got a possy right at the ropes perfect for videoing the celebs as they wandered by.

So who were our famous walkers?

Well we had a whole heap of the lovely Cars voices including Larry the Cable Guy (Mater), Bonnie Hunt (Sally), Cheech Marin (Ramone), Jenifer Lewis (Flo), Katherine Helmond (Lizzie), John Ratzenberger (Mack/HammTruck/Aboninable Snowplough/PT Flea Car), and Edie McClurg who I like to call "the receptionist from Ferris Buller" (Minny).  A very large and extremely noticable absence was my man Owen Wilson (Lightning McQueen). He has gone down quite a few pegs in my book as a result.  Perhaps not quite as jump worthy as he was a day ago.  Hopefully he has a good excuse.

Other celebs included a country music singing, Cars composing, incredibly good looking bloke called Brad (I'm really bad with country music knowledge ), Ginnifer Goodwin, the three kids from Modern Family, "Robert" from Everybody Loves Raymond, a couple of American Idol finalists, some Disney stars, Andy Garcia and his son, and Jon Cryer who I'd prefer to call "Duckie".

Of particular note was Mr Pixar himself (bow to the animation Gods) John Lasseter.  What a genius he is.

My wish for David Beckham didn't come true although rumour has it he was actually on the list! So I was close. But he didn't show.  Nor did my best friend Tori or my big guy Will.  Next time perhaps.

Here are some "teaser" photos to get you started. A big Deep Fried video of the event will be created over the next week with all the close ups, voices and Aussie Aussie Aussie banter. 

I'll fill you in on the ins and outs of Cars Land tomorrow!
