Official Opening Date Revealed for New Show at Disney's Hollywood Studios

There will be a post-show character meet and greet

Though this new show looks pretty cool from a technical standpoint, it's not exactly hands-on. However, for guests who want to get up close and personal with characters from the Cars franchise, there will also be a character meet and greet following each showing that will let characters post and take photos. 

Longtime Walt Disney World visitors might recall that Cars meet and greets were previously a staple of the lineup at Disney's Hollywood Studios, but thanks to the various construction projects at this park, we haven't had a Cars character experience in awhile. However, in the post-show area guests will be able to meet Cruz Ramirez, a character from Cars 3.

We're guessing this will be very similar to the Cruz Ramirez meet and greet that used to be available in Pixar Place before the opening of Toy Story Land, but Disney may add new dialogue from the show to help freshen this returning character experience and keep it relevant to the events of Lightning McQueen's Racing Academy.

Though the Cars franchise hasn't exactly had the staying power of other Pixar franchises like Toy Story or The Incredibles, it looks like Disney is going all-in on this new show, investing in new technology and an advanced animatronic to help bring this world to life for guests at Disney's Hollywood Studios. And considering the amount of time and money that is being invested, we'd imagine that this show will be sticking around for some time, even if it isn't as immediately popular as other new attractions opening this year at Disney's Hollywood Studios.
