Lightning McQueen's Racing Academy

Lightning McQueen's Racing Academy

An Attraction in Hollywood Studios

Last updated: June 22, 2024

At a Glance
This theater show features Cars superstars Lightning McQueen, Cruz Ramirez, and Tow Mater. While the last two appear only on the massive wraparound screen, Lightning McQueen is front and center as a full-size animatronic.

The show starts slowly, with Lightning explaining why he developed a racing academy, but it becomes impressive once the simulation starts. Using the huge screens, Lightning mimes racing as a track flies by around you. As usual, things don’t go quite as planned when an old adversary shows up, but it’s all settled by a race, of course.

For a relatively short show, the visuals and the wonderfully subtle movements of Lightning on the stage make this a worthwhile stop in the Studios.

Added to increase the park’s capacity, Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy is located in one of the most remote corners of the park: past the end of Sunset Boulevard, then past the end of the Rock ’n’ Roller Coaster plaza. Because it’s hard to find and requires backtracking to get anywhere else, it’s rarely crowded. A photo opportunity with Cruz Ramirez is outside the show.
