Mater, the affable tow truck character from Cars
will be featured in Cars Land. His junkyard will be on display, and he will greet riders (while riding backwards, of course) at the start of the Radiator Springs Racers ride. Mater made a visit to Disney California Adventure during a spring 2011 preview presentation of Cars Land.
The land opened Jun 15, 2012. See the actual Cars Land.
