Behind the Disney Roses.

“Ka-Chow!” and happy New Year’s Eve everyone! We are less than 24 hours away from 2013 here in Southern California AND a certain parade…that’s full of roses.

This past weekend, we were invited to get a sneak peek of the preparations going into the Disneyland Resort’s Rose Parade float. The Rose Parade, a Southern California New Year’s Day tradition and world-renowned parade, has partnered with Disneyland in the past and has renewed their partnership with this new, bigger and better float the celebrates everything Cars Land.

And when we say everything Cars Land, we mean EVERYTHING - right down to miniature Radiator Springs Racer vehicles ciricling the float.

Enjoy our milestone 70th video above highlighting “Destination: Cars Land” and we hope it gives you not only the excitement to see the float tomorrow in the parade, but a new appreciation that goes into making them!

Be sure to take a look at some pictures too from the preparations on our Facebook Page.

OH YEAH, be sure to catch the float tomorrow for a special surprise that is going to happen on the float during its route. Expect special guests to ride atop it and a certain kind of Mater to participate too!
