As a newcomer to the west coast through beautiful and sunny southern California, I’m constantly encountering new and amazing sights. Having visited Disney World often throughout my childhood, I recently had the pleasure of my first visit to Disneyland. As some veterans of the theme park can let you know, Disneyland is really remarkable that it easily overshadows its neighbor, California Adventure. A theme park that is basically one giant homage to their state of California, you may miss how in addition, it incorporates Disney movies and rides. Among these, I was absolutely amazed by among its latest additions, Cars Land, which used Cars, the 2006 Pixar film, as its inspiration.
One of the most amazing accomplishments of the Radiator Springs portion of the park is how perfectly it recreates that quaint little town from the movie. From the gas station to the diner, once you step into Radiator Springs, you step right into the movie. Personally, I wasn’t ready for how well Disney used Cars’buildings to generate this type of fantastic village.
Having visited Disneyworld and Universal Studios in the past, I’m no stranger to how theme parks reference movies in order to create fantastic environments. I still remember how small I felt when I entered a play zone that has been modeled after the lawn in Honey I Shrunk the Kids. However, what made my last trip to Cars Land so amazing was that I stepped right into my memory of the movie, so much to ensure that I possibly could almost convince myself that I was a character. Not expecting that level of verisimilitude, I became childlike in my wonder of how anyone could so perfectly transform an animated town in to a actual life place.
I have now been to movie sets in the past, the sort making it possible to walk up the stairs to go to a house, but I’d never walked around in a three-dimensional recreation of an animated movie. I’m unsure if Radiator Springs in California Adventure is really a testament to how well computer animation has come along, or if that segment of the park demonstrates so how good Disney are at creating a fantasy auto usate toscana. I do know, however, that I felt transported to a fresh land, several other space beyond that portion of California that I’d begun to know. Somehow, I felt removed from normal life and could walk around nowadays where cars spoke and life wasn’t only simpler but also more innocent.
Unfortunately, my trip to the park had to come quickly to a conclusion, and I’d to leave behind Radiator Springs. Like all wondrous things, my trip couldn’t last forever. Nonetheless, that experience left a level on my memory, and I’ll forever maintain awe of how Disney used Cars to send me into a fantasy that I won’t ever forget.
