JULIE FLETCHER, ORLANDO SENTINEL
April 28, 2006
Two characters from the Disney Pixar movie 'Cars', Lightning McQueen (red face) and Tow Mater (the tow-truck) take to the streets of Disney Hollywood Studios and lead the parade, Friday, April 28, 2006. The two characters finally have a permanent home at the Walt Disney World theme park for a new photo-opportunity location called Luigi's Garage.
The area gives young fans of the movie a chance to meet robotic versions of Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater, the animated characters whose voices in the movie were provided by Owen Wilson and Larry The Cable Guy.
The cars have been around Disney's Hollywood Studios theme park for a couple of years but have not had a permanent spot until Luigi's Garage was finished a couple of weeks ago, a Disney spokesman said. The spot, set in the fictional desert town of Radiator Springs, is located between the Muppet Vision 3-D attraction and the Lights Motor Action! attraction in the park's Streets of America section.
