Downtown Disney Car Masters Weekend!

Downtown Disney Car Masters Weekend is going on this weekend, May 13-15.

Four-time Piston Cup Champion, Lightning McQueen, Mater and British super-spy, Finn McMissile will hit the road to celebrate the release of Disney•Pixar’s Cars 2.  At Downtown Disney Car Masters Weekend, families can hang out with Lightning, Mater and Finn McMissile, plus take part in all sorts of fun “Cars” activities, including a video kiosk, e-photo opportunities and games.

Along with meeting some their favorite characters from “Cars,” families were able to “test drive” and purchase new Cars 2  RIDEMAKERZ models. Always wanted to see what Mater would look like as a 4×4? Mix, match and design your very own unique Cars 2 vehicle.

Families can also throw their love for cars in “reverse” and go back in time to check out dozens of classic cars on display that helped shape the vehicles we drive today or check out the original Cars film, which will play on the big screen all weekend at the AMC Pleasure Island 24 Theatres Complex.

Below are photos taken while there this afternoon.  Click on each image for a larger view. 

Those in attendance were each given a pencil and a choice of a key chain or magnet featuring Lightning McQueen, Mater, Finn McMissile and Holly Shiftwell. A photo pass was given to each person for free photos with each of the cars.

We stopped by D-Street at Downtown Disney® WestSide while at the Cars Masters Weekend to check out the upcoming new Cars 2 set coming this summer that were on display.

They're not for sale as of yet, only on display.  Castmember we spoke to wasn't sure of actual release date and guestimated price to be in the $24.95-$26.95.
