Cars 3 Zooms Into Southern California for Its World Premiere

It has finally arrived! For fans of the Disney Pixar Cars franchise, this day couldn’t come soon enough. This past weekend the Cars 3 world premiere took over the Anaheim Convention Center Arena, followed by a star-studded private after party at Disney California Adventure’s Cars Land. Needless to say, the event was a total hit for both kids and adults. Not only was the event a success, but the actual movie brought back all the fuzzy feelings, laughs and reasons why we fell in love with the original Cars movie in the first place.

When Disney and Pixar team up, we are almost guaranteed they will create the stuff childhood dreams are made of. In our childhood, we all had those movies (most likely at least one Disney movie) that shaped our thoughts. They taught us about the world outside our backyards and inspired us to think deeply and dream big. Even now, as adults, many of us still think fondly of those films, and they return us to a time in our lives when anything seemed possible. Cars 3 is a great example of how far kids’ movies have come, both in the sense of storytelling, as well as film technology.

I feel so thankful and privileged that Alamo Rent A Car made it possible for my family to experience this bit of Disney magic. They pulled out all the stops for this major premiere (no pun intended), complete with lots of family friendly activities, incredible eats and a private evening at Disney California Adventure Park with Cars Land all to ourselves.

Thanks to Alamo Rent A Car for hosting us at the Disneyland Cars 3 Premiere! All opinions remain my own.

    Super awesome premiere! I’m glad you got to go there and see the movie and enjoy all the perks as well. I definitely enjoyed the third movie even more than the second one.

    Any movie made by Disney Pixar is bound to be a great one. My childhood memories of Disney movies were as good as the technology was in those days. The sound quality was not really great. LOL. Anyway, I love CARS and my kids and grandkids are big fans of it too!

    I remember how much my little ones liked Cars when they were younger. I still think they would love Cars 3 even though they’re older. Looks like a great movie!
