Are you wondering where to meet characters from the Disney / Pixar movie series CARS at the Walt Disney World Theme Parks.

You can meet Cruz Ramirez from the Disney-Pixar Film Cars 3 at Pixar Place in Disney's Hollywood Studios.  Check the park Times Guide for exact times during your visit. 

Unfortunately, the Lightning McQueen & Mater Character Meet & Greet at Disney's Hollywood Studios park closed on January 4, 2016 to make way for the Star Wars and Toy Story lands being developed in the park.  You can, however, stay in a family suite at the super-cute Cars area of Disney's Art of Animation Resort (more information below).
