Experiencing Carsland by Joey Bean

As a Cast Member you sometimes get great benefits and perks. One of the greatest I've had so far was to ride Luigi's Flying Tires, the new ride in Carsland, before it opened to the public. On Saturday, May 5th, I was invited, along with my brother and his family, to go to Carsland to test out this very fun ride. Luigi's Tires was started in Italy before Luigi moved to Radiator Springs.

Fun Fact: Luigi's Tires is a reincarnation of the Flying Saucers which was in Tomorrowland at Disneyland from 1961 through 1966! Trivia: What replaced the original Flying Saucers?

As you enter the queue you go through the tire shop. Looking around you will notice the different tires throughout the shop. If you pay close attention, you will notice that they are all named after pasta noodles! I think my favorite was fettuccini. There were two of those: regular and Alfredo! You can only guess what the Alfredo Fettuccini tires were. This experience was so much fun and I can't wait to have another experience, which I hope happens soon!
