The Curios shop in Disney California Adventure’s Cars Land

The Radiator Springs Curios shop is a gift shop in the Cars Land section of Disney California Adventure that sells a variety of Cars and Route 66 related souvenirs. It’s a faithful recreation of Lizzie’s shop from Pixar’s Cars franchise.

The shop in the film draws inspiration from three real-life roadside gift shops along Route 66: Sandhills Curiosity Shop, Hackberry General Store, and Jack Rabbit Trading Post (famous for its “HERE IT IS” billboard)

Inside the shop, you can find a reference to the 1989 short film, Knick Knack, one of Pixar’s first experimental computer-animated films. If you walk in the shop and look on the top shelf on the far wall, you’ll find the “Nome Sweet Nome” snow globe from the short.
