Anaheim, CA, USA /PRNewswire/ — The characters, fun and excitement of Cars Land are racing to Pasadena Jan. 1 as the town of Radiator Springs is transformed into a float for the 124th Rose Parade. The Disneyland Resort entry in the 2013 Rose Parade brings to life the whimsical magic of Cars Land for a worldwide television audience, as the Happiest Place on Earth Just Gets Happier.

Shaped like the state of California, the 125-foot long float features flowing water, smoke-puffing baby tractors and 45 animated parts, including replicas of Lightning McQueen and Sally as they relive their fun-spirited road race from the first “Cars” movie. Mater, the tow truck, follows along behind the float.

Guests are enjoying a spectacular holidays makeover of Cars Land now through Jan. 6, 2013, as the Disneyland Resort just gets merrier for the season.
