Universal Studios Hollywood popularised the behind-the-scenes movie studio tram tour, and it was inevitable that Walt Disney Studios would receive its own version. However, as the park doesn’t actually host a working studio, the tour has been made up largely of transplanted sets from Disney movies and one major set-piece.

From 2021,Cars Route 66 Road Trip replaces the "Studio Tram Tour: Behind the Magic". The new Cars Road Trip has been designed by both Disney Imagineers and Pixar.   It departs from the Hollywood Boulevard area and guests board trams that can hold up to 168 guests, each of which is equipped with video screens that play commentary in multiple languages. Guests experience an adventure with Lightning McQueen and Mater to discover other CARS characters along the famous Route 66 highway. The old favourite Catastrophe Canyon has been updated with the addition of a DINOCO tower, oil pump and a truck, but still involves fire, explosions and copious amounts of water.
