DCA's Cars Land features quite a few Hidden Disney·Pixar Details. John Lasseter, the Chief Creative Officer for Pixar Studios and Walt Disney Animation has been honored with a cameo inside Casa Della Tires. Along the queue for Luigi's Flying Tires are displays featuring Guido and Luigi's personal memorabilia. One prized piece is an autographed photo from a wood panelled pickup named John Lassetire, a play on Lasseter.
Lasseter also made a cameo in the Disney·Pixar animated feature Cars 2 (2011). The hard-working pickup truck, John Lassetire, appeared as Jeff Gorvette's yellow crew chief in the World Grand Prix pits.
