When is the New Show Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy going to be added to the Hollywood Studios touring plan? It is set to open in early 2019 and would like to add it in to my touring plan.
I would imagine once there is an actual opening date confirmed by Disney, and a schedule of shows added to the Disney site that TP can use to schedule it.
According the Parks Blog, it’s now being listed as “Spring 2019” vice “early 2019”. I don’t know if there is any significance to this; in Disney parlance, “early” typically means the first half of the year, which could mean anything from January to June and “Spring” usually mean the March-May timeframe, but could also mean anything before Memorial Day weekend… They might be shooting for Spring Break Season (March) or Easter (April 21st in 2019).
Any new information about this out there?
Did some research and found this quoted from Disney Parks Blog:
"Taking on the role of rookie racer, you’ll cruise into the theater and find yourself face-to-face with Lightning McQueen, appearing live on stage. McQueen and the entire audience are enveloped by a giant, wraparound screen that is nearly two stories tall and stretches more than 200 feet from end to end, pulling everyone into the action! The racing legend is excited to showcase what he’s learned over the years. Of course, as Lightning McQueen has discovered throughout his career, things don’t always go according to plan, and he has to think fast to get back on course. Friends like Tow Mater, Cruz Ramirez and Lightning’s pals from Radiator Springs chime in with their support, as Lightning gears up for the challenge.
Disney Parks Live Entertainment is working closely with the creative team at Pixar Animation Studios to bring this new “Cars” story to life. Stay tuned to Disney Parks Blog in the coming months, as we share more about Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy on the road to its spring 2019 grand opening, and be sure to catch the behind-the-scenes look at the attraction in the “Disney Parks Presents a 25 Days of Christmas Holiday Party” starting today on the DisneyNOW app and airing December 1 at 8 p.m. EST on Disney Channel."
Meh, was hoping it would be ready for our end of Feb trip. Ah well.
