One of the highlights of Cars Land is watching people as they ride Radiator Springs Racers. There’s so much life and exuberance in the thrill of the race. People laugh and smile. They shout and raise their hands. Perfect strangers wave to (or taunt) each other from cars that are neck and neck to the finish line.

It’s not about winning or losing as much as it’s about confronting the possibility of an outcome that could go either way. People avoid challenges every day. At Disney Parks, we find ourselves in an environment that comforts us enough to embrace a challenge and find out that the outcome, whatever it may be, is okay. Heck, we have fun simply trying. Don’t get me wrong. Winning is awesome. But you’ll never win if you never try.
