Cars Land

Disney has released a new set of photos showing off finished areas of the Cars Land expansion at Disney California Adventure, which will open on June 15, 2012.

Based around the fictional town of Radiator Springs as seen in Pixar's Cars movies, Cars Land will feature three all-new attractions and a number of restaurants and retail outlets. While most of these will be located on a recreation of Route 66, the headline Radiator Springs Racers attraction will sprawl across a huge area of mock desert, dubbed Ornament Valley.

The photos below show the level of detail that has been put into the design of Cars Land, including extensive rockwork, authentic desert plantlife and a statue of Radiator Springs' founder, Stanley.

Cars Land's June 15 opening date will also see the debut of Buena Vista Street, a new entrance area for Disney California Adventure that replaces Sunshine Plaza. It will mark the completion of a series of major updates to the park, which had been criticized for being built "on the cheap" following its 2001 opening.
