Unearthed from my Closet: Cruz Ramirez - CARS 3 Disneybound


"It's all about motivation, Mr. McQueen. You can use anything negative as fuel to push through to the positive!"
Cruz Ramirez

Its been a bit since I fully Disneybounded during my visits to the park. I just wasn’t motivated to put things together and most of the time I wouldn’t have a piece like I don’t really having any purple bottoms to pull off a Ariel bound.

I’m not a huge fan of the CARS series. I love the secondary characters but I was never a McQueen fan. Of course, I still went to see the films! CARS 2 was okay. It was a funny spy agent spoof and I love that it revolved more around Mater but not something I would re watch or even own. I don’t think I even own the first film.

Anyways, when the third file was released I went and saw it. It went back to its original roots about racing and I hoped that McQueen wouldn’t be as annoying. Also there were new characters such as Storm and Cruz.


The film was really good! It has become one of my favorites and it was all because of Cruz. The yellow car that was a huge racing fanatic and became the racer she was always meant to be.  She became the star of the film for me. CARS 3 was all about Cruz!

When my friends who work at Disneyland started sending me photos that you could met Cruz at CARSLAND, I had to make the trip and started getting ideas to Disneybound as Cruz.

Cruz is voiced by Cristela Alonzo and it was great hearing Cruz speak some Spanish in the film even if it was a small moment. I’m not sure why I resonated with this character – maybe lack of women stories in both live and animated films - but she’s become one of my favorites.
