Disney Pixar CARS 2: CARS 2 Party Breaking Out Everywhere!

Of course, there is the Los Angeles (Hollywood) CARS 2 “playland” and CARS on the big screen starting June 24, 2011 and going for most of the summer.

And at Charlotte Motor Speedway over Memorial Day weekend is the NASCAR Coca Cola 600 with “Mater” (Larry the Cable Guy) as honorary pace car driver plus the State Farm agents on a Mission Tour along with more CARS 2 going on …

But the party starts at EPCOT in Orlando FL on May 13th.

From the Press Release:

Immerse yourself in the world of Pixar films at Pixar’s 25th Anniversary Weekend. As the Epcot® International Flower & Garden Festival at Walt Disney World® Resort in Florida wraps, celebrate Pixar with exciting activities, special character appearances and a speaker series with Pixar insiders.

(careful where you park your car, that kudzu plant is crazy. 🙂 )

Note – you do need an admissions ticket to EPCOT. There is no addition charge for the Pixar Weekend.

It is the final day of the EPCOT International Garden & Flower show (hence the topiary of Lightning & Mater). You can stay for the free Herman Hermit’s concert with Peter Noone … so get out your suede fringe jacket.

The Pixar weekend will be extended beyond the perimeters of Epcot into the Downtown Disney district, Lightning McQueen, Tow Mater and Finn McMissile from the State Farm ‘Agents on a Mission‘ tour be there along with dozens of classic cars.

Sounds like a pretty full weekend!
