Cars 3: Disneyland Promotional Button

Cars 3 Disneyland Promotional Button

On June 16th 2017, to commemorate the theatrical release of Cars 3, these "Opening Day" promotional buttons were handed out to guests visiting either of the Disneyland Resort parks (that includes California Adventure). To paint a picture, apparently there were some pretty big bins at each ticket station where guests could actually grab their own as well. Each button is about 2 7/8" in diameter and features Lightning McQueen and Cruz Ramirez racing on Fireball Beach (which is ultimately just a cropped portion of one of the film's theatrical posters—sorry Jackson, you didn't make the cut here).

As you can probably tell, I wasn't lucky enough to be in Disneyland during the release of Cars 3 and did not get these in person. That's where my friend Jerrod Maruyama came in (you know his art—check him out HERE), who sent these along to me in a recent package filled with all sorts of Pixar goodies! That was incredibly nice and thoughtful of him and I'm thrilled to have a couple of these awesome buttons as a part of my collection. From what I gather, this was the only design that was handed out.

If you want one of these for yourself, be sure to race over to eBay using this direct link to current listings while there are still tons of people selling them. The average price right now ranges around $3- $5.

So what are your thoughts? Were you able to pick this button up there at one of the parks? What was your experience like? Let me know in the comments below.

As a side note, today I celebrated 4 YEARS of! I can't believe I've been writing daily posts here for that long. Thanks to all who visit and read my content regularly... the support means so much and keeps me going! Here's to another year. 🎉
