It has been unexpectedly closed since December 29, 2022. The attraction could still open later today, but this seems unlikely given the last week.

As with many attractions and animatronics, the Lightning McQueen race car is a complex piece of machinery. It is similar to the technology used in Frozen Ever After but on a larger different scale.

Typically, the Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy stage show, which runs 10 minutes, is performed continuously throughout the day. 

Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy first opened to the public on March 31, 2019. Watch our full video of the show below.
