With Memorial Day officially in the books, it’s now time to start thinking about dad. Father’s Day is right around the corner and if you’ll be in the Walt Disney World area on June 14-15, and are a fan of all things having to do with cars, have I got the perfect day for you!
Car Masters Weekend, an event celebrating all things automotive, will be returning to Downtown Disney. This is the 4th year for the celebration and activities will abound during the fantastically fun weekend!
The main event is the Car Show, presented by Meguiar’s, where approximately 100 classic, muscle, and exotic cars will be on display. Fans can even vote for their favorite. Then on Sunday, the best of the best will be crowned during an awards ceremony.
Car Masters Weekend is a perfect family event, featuring a ton of entertaining action. Lightning McQueen, Finn McMissle, and Mater from Cars 2, will be on hand for photo opportunities. In addition, at the AMC Downtown Disney 24, there will be a Cars and Cars 2 movie marathon. Plus, if you want to meet an actual Pixar filmmaker, Jay Ward will be on hand to take part in Q&A sessions.
Speaking of Cars, for guests who want to meet an automotive legend, Chip Foose, who contributed to the design of Ramone in the film Cars, will once again be on hand for presentations where he’ll share his passion for cars. In addition, he’ll have brand-new merchandise for sale throughout the weekend.
A couple of new events have been added to the roster of this year’s festivities. First, a real fire truck will be on hand, promoting the upcoming movie, Disney’s Planes: Fire and Rescue. Little ones will even get to try on authentic firefighter gear. The new Piston Cup Racers from the Richard Petty Driving Experience will be there too! Guests can get up-close with Aiken Axler and Sage VanDerSpin, part of the new Junior Ride-Along Program. Also new for this year will be the Chevrolet Performance Mobile Tour, where guests can take a seat in some of the latest Test Track vehicles. Finally, there will be an all new Event Expo.
This is all just the tip of the iceberg. Guests will also have the opportunity to take part in face painting, dine on themed food and beverage offerings, experience live entertainment, enjoy interactive activities from Disney Interactive, and more!
Car Masters Weekend is sure to be great family-filled fun and is the perfect way to spend a little quality time with dad this Father’s Day.
