A Heartfelt Farewell to Lights, Motors, Action! at Disney's Hollywood Studios
The stands can hold thousands of guests and we've sat high, low, and on either side and in the middle. There isn't a bad seat in the house. We like to sit close enough to feel the heat of the flames during the various fires and explosions.
We've seen the show before Lightning McQueen and Mater were added. And, we enjoy the trivia questions displayed on the big screen prior to the show. Our best tip for viewing is to bring in water and/or a snack to enjoy during the 38 minute show. We also use our inflatable Pocket Seats (click here to read more) and find the looks from other guests when we start to blow up the cushions a hoot.
We've been escorted past guests, to an elevator, and to special seating when the husband used a Birthday Fastpass in 2010 when there were special offers for being a Walt Disney World on your actual birthday.
But our most recent and last time at Lights, Motors, Action! was the best! Part way through the show, a Cast Member comes into the stands looking for a volunteer to drive a "remote control" car. We've seen this part multiple times and the boy did stand up and wave. . . this time as he has done before. Well, this time it worked and he was picked out of the crowd to join the show!
He did a great job of driving the car. He said he "pretended" he didn't know that it was really a hidden driver actually driving the "remote control" car.
He received a certificate and commemorative Disney pin only given to the children picked for this special part of the show. The boy's plan now that the show is closing--keep the pin and let it increase in value. Then, he has designs of selling it on Ebay. (We've never sold anything on Ebay so I have no idea where he came up with that one!)
Lights, Motors, Action!, you have given us many great family memories as well as respite for our feet in the middle of the day while visiting Disney's Hollywood Studios. We thank you and bid you fond farewell!
