In honor of the new release of Cars 2, I'll share my stories of meeting Lightning McQueen and Mater!  In November of 2006, my mom and I went to WDW together for a Youth Minister's Conference.  If you've been reading my blog for a while, you may know that this conference was horrible.  It was a disaster.  But, we were at the "Most Magical Place on Earth" so we ditched most of the conference and played in the parks together! :)

On our trip to then MGM, we met Mater and Lightning McQueen by Echo Lake (between Indiana Jones and Sounds Dangerous).  Obviously, I didn't get an autograph since they don't have hands, but I did get great photos with each of them!   It took a while because kids were running up to the characters to get a photo and jumping in my way.  I guess they didn't think an "adult" would want their picture made with the cars...


  1. Joey was so excited to see Lightning McQueen and Mater, but all my pics of him he is trying to turn around to see them! LOL!

  2. Those crazy kids, always getting in the way. ;o)

  3. Melissa- you are so right! They always get in my way when I try to meet a character!! :)

    Beth- Im sure they are still great pics and wonderful memories!
