Are you counting the days until the premiere of Disney•Pixar’s “Cars 3” on June 16? I sure am!

And I’m even more excited knowing that there are opportunities to ‘meet’ one of the film’s new characters, Cruz Ramirez!

My fellow blog author Darcy Clark shared a post about how you can get in the Disney•Pixar’s “Cars 3” mood this weekend by heading to Disney Springs Marketplace Thursday through Sunday, where Cruz will be making an appearance along with her friends Lightning McQueen and Jackson Storm. Visit for more info!

You can also race to the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, specifically the “Cars”-themed Road to Florida 500 garden. Cruz is featured as one of the topiaries.

Tell us in the comments section if you will be visiting Disney Springs or Epcot this weekend to see these special “Cars 3” offerings!
