Though this Summer has already brought us many new character events, one is now undoubtedly stealing the show every day. Well, she does have a big advantage -- a shiny vintage car... on Hollywood Blvd!,
Since Monday 14th July, fans visiting Walt Disney Studios Park have been in for a big surprise. Imagine seeing the distant glisten of a classic motorcar passing by Beverley Court, turning the corner at Deluxe Travel Agency and parking up at the Franklin Department Store.
Before you’ve even had time to pick your jaw up off the ground, out steps a snarling Cruella De Vil… perhaps a spot of shopping in Hollywood will cheer her up? Blast! She’s been attacked by the park-guest-paparazzi already!
The black Cadillac has been decorated all over with white spots — why, because a white car would clash terribly with Miss De Vil’s own outfit! She steps out to sign autographs and pose for pictures for around 20 minutes before driving off up the boulevard and turning left along Vine Street, in front of The Hollywood Tower Hotel. The car then leaves the park to the left of CinéMagique.
Whilst many guests clamour and rush for a picture with Cruella, an equal amount take a step back to admire the car itself — and the sudden extra touch of life it adds to Hollywood Boulevard.
There’s even a little Hidden Mickey on there…
We’ve also compiled a video with a few clips of Cruella meeting guests, but mostly — that snazzy car driving around the Boulevard…
Cruella de Vil is scheduled to appear on Hollywood Boulevard on most days this Summer (until 31st August). Though times aren’t posted in advance anywhere, look out for her at around 10.30am, 11.30am or 12.30pm — and ask nicely for that photograph!
