This year will mark the 3rd Annual Car Masters Weekends, which is slated to take place during Father’s Day Weekend at Downtown Disney Westside at Walt Disney World. The event is essentially a classic car show, with a twist.
The main portion of the event is the car show, which will feature more than 150 classic, exotic, and muscle cars. Guests will then be able to vote on their absolute favorite.
Do you have a Cars fan in the house? This is your opportunity to meet some of the characters from Cars and Cars 2. Lightning McQueen, Mater and Finn McMissile will all be there to pose with the family. In addition, Chip Foose and Jay Ward will host a special celebrity chat. Both played instrumental parts in the making of Cars. Jay was a filmmaker on the project and automotive designer Chip contributed to the design of the character Ramone. Chip will also take part in autograph sessions.
Guests will also be able to participate in a special Cars and Cars 2 movie marathon at the AMC Downtown Disney 24.
A new addition will have guests participate in the first ever Car Masters Weekend Sock Hop over at Splitsville Luxury Lanes. The event is scheduled to take place on June 15 from 6 pm – 9 pm. It will feature live entertainment, a bowling competition, a buffet of some of Splitsville’s goodies, a limited bar, and raffle prizes. Tickets for this event are required. They will cost $69 per person and go on sale on June 5.
Other events taking place this year include street performances from Cirque du Soleil’s La Nouba; testing of the new Disney Infinity video game; activities surrounding the upcoming Monsters University, Planes, and Lone Ranger movies; test driving remote control Cars 2 RideMakerz models; and vehicles on display from the Exotic Driving Experience at Walt Disney World Speedway.
