On October 9 – 11 I attended a Disney Press Event for THOR: RAGNAROK. My hotel and airfare and meals were taken care of while I was in L.A. Opinions and observations as well as recaps and such are all my own. This post will also contain some affiliate links to Amazon.com.
Cars 3 was released on Bluray/DVD today. This is my favorite of the three Cars movies. There is so much in this movie to enjoy but there is even more on the Bluray/DVD. I’m talking about the Bonus Features. I received the Bluray/DVD combo about a week ago and just got a chance to pour through all the bonus features the other day. There are a whole bunch of great bonus features with lots of insight into the movie.
Five years ago I went on my first Disney press trip. It was to the Pixar campus for Monsters University. While I was there I got to speak with so many amazing people who put these movies together. Well, the bonus features here on this Bluray/DVD were like taking a trip back to Pixar to get some special insider knowledge about this movie. Here are a few of my favorite bonus features.
Probably the most interesting was the feature, Legendary. This was most interesting because it was about real people who were made into cars for the movie. Specifically racing legends Wendell Scott and Louise Smith. These two racers were pioneers at a time when neither were welcome in the sport. They weren’t invited to race but showed up and won people over. They had the will and tenacity to keep going even if things were difficult. It was really cool to see more about the real world people and then see how their stories were added into the film to help Lightning McQueen.

On the very first night of my #ThorRagnarokEvent adventure we loaded up into a couple of shuttles and headed from the hotel to Disneyland to spend the evening. Our mission, to check out everything going on in Cars Land. This year is the very first year that Cars Land has been converted to a Halloween theme, or rather Haul-O-Ween, as part of the overall park HalloweenTime theme. Cars Land did things a little differently and it looked fantastic. I have a ton of photos from the experience which was made all the better with our own personal Disneyland guide who took us all over the Disney California Adventure Park and also into Disneyland Park. We were in for an amazing night of fun.
We were broken into three groups according to what type of rides we did or did not want to do. Mostly it was for anyone who did not want to do the Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout which was made into Guardians of the Galaxy: Monsters After Dark. I was in the group that opted not to ride that particular ride. I just know that I can get a little queasy on rides like that and I wanted to have the best night I could because who knows, It may take another 15 years for me to come back again. Yeah, it has been 15 years since I’ve been to Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. Allison and I went when we were out for a wedding. A lot has changed in that time.
One of the things that changed was the creation of Cars Land. This is something that wasn’t there back then. The first Cars movie hadn’t even been released back then. Cars was released in 2006. When it was I made sure to get every single one of the character toy cars to save for the kids. When they were old enough to appreciate them I gave them my collection. They have been Cars fans ever since. Andrew and Eva even came with me to a Cars 3 sneak preview screening of the movie in Boston this past June. Now Cars 3 is about to hit Digital (Today 10/24) and Bluray (11/7) and we can enjoy the movie all over again. I personally thing it is the best of the three movies in the series.
