Hidden Mickey Monday ºoº - Custom Painted Hidden Mickey Car Hoods

With features like Flo's V-8 Cafe and the Cadillac Range, Cars Land gets the motor running for Disney loving gear-heads. Automotive enthusiasts visiting Disney Caifornia Adventure Park can spend hours shifting through the car-inspired details scattered throughout Radiator Springs.

While most cars are judged by everything under the hood, the custom painted hoods in Cars Land are unique headturners. More than a dozen custom bonnets were created by famed auto designer & customizer Chip Foose, host of televsion's Overhaulin' and owner of Foose Designs in Huntington Beach, California. A vital Imagineering consultant in creating Cars Land, Foose had originally helped Pixar Studios by styling Ramone's authentic lowrider look in 2006's Cars.

Each of Foose's classic car hoods features a unique paint scheme and a Classsic Mickey hidden somewhere within its design. Seven of the custom creations have been displayed in Ramone's House of Body Art Gift Shop, six in the storefront windows and one behind the register counter.

At least five more of the Disney-inpsired Foose designs appear inside the Radiator Springs Racers attraction. After meeting Sally & Lightning McQueen, racers heading into Ramone's shop for a quick paint job, pass several ornate hoods and their Hidden Mickeys.

Radiator Springs Racers - A pinstriped Hidden Mickey can be found on a tool box after leaving Luigi's tire shop


Radiator Springs Racers - A pinstriped Hidden Mickey can be found on a fuse box in Ramone's House of Body Art paint shopThese Hidden Mickeys are from Disney California Adventure Park's Cars Land, inspired by the world of Radiator Springs from Disney-Pixar's Cars (2006) & Cars 2 (2011) animated features. The pinstriped Hidden Mickeys are part of the thrilling Radiator Springs Racers attraction, which improves on technology from EPCOT's Test Track at the Walt Disney World Resort.

During each trip, riders will only be able to see one of the two Hidden Mickeys. As each racecar enters Radiator Springs, Lightning McQueen and Sally decide whether that car needs new tires or a new paint job. Paths will be chosen randomly. As the road forks, riders will be taken through either Guido's Casa Della Tires or Ramone's House of Body Art paint shop.
