Disney Cars Birthday Party

Would your child like to race in his own Lightning McQueen race car?

Disney Cars Birthday party is an awesome theme for a child's birthday party because there are so many fun action-packed options. 

Great kids birthday parties take a bit of planning and on this page you will find everything you need for a fantastic Disney Cars birthday party, from invitations to party favors and everything in between. Pick and choose the things you (and your child) like most to make your own unique party experience. For help getting organized, visit the "Party Checklist" page.

Does your child love Disney Cars?

Kids love the Disney Cars movies, especially the Cars characters including Lightning McQueen and Mater.  If you (and your child) have decided on a Cars character theme, the next thing to decide is where to have the party.

The perfect place for a Disney Cars birthday party is anywhere! While outdoors gives children a little more space to run around, indoors parties are just as fun.  Whether it's your backyard (or someone else's), a park or anywhere where your guests can run around (International Speedway here we come!), most places work with a little planning. Outside is not the only option.  There are lots of great places to have an awesome birthday party including your living room (See indoor car wash idea below).  

Remember, it's not so much where you have the party but what you do at the party that counts.  But before we go any further, you should have a place in mind.  Here's is a list of places where you can have a great children's  party.  

Kids Birthday Party Locations

  • Backyard
  • Park
  • Lake
  • Go-Kart Facility
  • Local Swimming Pool
  • Zoo
  • Go Cart Racing Track
  • Local kids party place (i.e. Chuck E. Cheese, Gymboree, Dave & Busters)
  • Local kids party place
  • Children's Museum
  • Sports Complex
  • Aquarium
  • Amusement Park
  • Kid Friendly/Petting Farm
  • Playground
  • YMCA

Once you have the theme and venue, decide on a time frame for the party. Usually 2 hours is more than enough time for young guests.

Decide how many guests you will be inviting. Try to keep the list short for the little ones. The general rule of thumb is invite one child for every year of the birthday child + 2. So if your child is turning 5 then try to keep the guest list at 7.

Add Lightning McQueen, Tow Mater or your child's favorite Cars character by either printing it on your envelope as we did above or using Disney Cars stickers. Let your child use his/her imagination to draw a road (gray Sharpie marker) or anything else they may envision to give their invitations that personal feel.

Unique Cars Birthday Party Invitations

If you are looking for something different, something unique, below are 4 creative ideas for "extra cool" invitations for your Disney Cars birthday party.

Looking for creative FREE invitations?

This Disney Lightning McQueen car and Disney Tow Mater truck are actually 3D free printable crafts from Disney, which you can turn into invitations. Simply print, cut out, glue and leave the hood open (for the car). Then write your birthday information and slip it inside (like a secret message) and fold hood back down. This is definitely a WOW invitation!

The Lightning McQueen car craft is much easier to assemble and has a lot less parts, so unless your child's heart is set on Tow Mater, I would stick with Lightning McQueen.

Note: The bottom of the Lightning McQueen car has a space that you can either insert an invitation or use as a party favor by filling it with treats. The Tow Mater truck has 3 open spaces on the bottom. Fill the spaces with treats and then close by gluing with a strip of paper (can use brown grocery bag paper).

This can also be a craft for a party, however, due to the length of time it takes to cut out and glue, this may not work for a large number of guests or for little ones.

You can print Disney's Lightning McQueen craft here:

Disney Cars Birthday Party Ideas

Great kids birthday parties have games and activities for guests to enjoy. Here are some fun-packed ideas that will keep your guests having a great time!

Get ready, set......WAIT!!

Every racer needs a driver license

Choose from the 2 styles below

Download Lightning McQueen Driver License (above) Template HERE.

Print driver licenses on card stock paper for a more authentic look. Download Lightning McQueen Driver License template HERE.

Write in your State in the top rectangle and either put the child's picture (maybe from the school yearbook) or a Disney Cars image. Give each guest their own driver license as they arrive.

Give them an I.D. number just for fun or to use for a later game (i.e. you can call out their I.D. numbers and they each get a turn placing a car part on a Lightning McQueen cutout-see games below).

Have an adult fill out their "driver license" or they can fill it out, depending on the ages of your guests.

One of the easiest, most comfortable and safest way to make these licenses is to print the entire sheet on sticker paper ( the one where the entire sheet is a sticker- 8 1/2 x 11inches, 21.6cm x 28cm), then as guests arrive and fill out their license, you just need to cut off that license and peel sticker off paper and give to child to stick wherever they want.


You can print the sheet of kids drivers licenses (8 licenses per sheet) on card stock, cut them out and have guest fill out as they arrive.  

You can then:

  1. Leave the driver license as is and put double-sided tape on back and give to your guest to stick on wherever they want.
  2. Laminate - Using laminating sheets (can find at office supply stores).  Best to let them fill out before laminating because you can laminate them and then use a sharpie but it wouldn't look as nice.  Unless you fill out their licenses ahead of time, then laminate them and just have them sign the laminated license with a sharpie marker or other quick drying marker.
  3. Punch small holes on both top corners and place thin ribbon to make it look like a lanyard or use real lanyards.
  4. If you are making cardboard box cars (or having races) you can ask them to turn it in to a designated adult as they get their cars.

Any one you choose will be lots of fun at your next Disney Cars birthday party.

FREE Disney Cars Coloring Pages

Kids love to color and display their artwork. This is a great activity for kids birthday parties.  Have your guests color their favorite Disney Cars  character and hang on a line with clothespins.  To make the line, simply hang a string from one area of the party to another area.  Displaying their coloring pages makes a great banner and serves as a decoration and something to take home after the party.

 Find sources for FREE Disney Cars Coloring Pages HERE.

Kids Word Search

Kids word searches are a fun activity for children, especially if the word search is a party themed word search.  This is a great Disney Cars birthday party activity which is a fun ice breaker at the beginning of a party while you're waiting for your other guests to arrive.  

Below is a Lightning McQueen's Word Search which is ready to print and use.  Click on the image or the link below it to print.

However, if you have a little extra time (and by little I mean about 2 more minutes) you can make your own personalized word search.  I did this  for birthday parties and classroom parties when my girls were little and the children got a kick out of seeing their names on the word search.

What's great about making your own kids party word search is that you can customize your it in various ways.

You can choose the following:

  • Title (Step 1) - You type it in so it can be anything.  It can be the birthday child's name or favorite party-themed character or some silly name.
  • Size (Step 2) - How many lines across and how many lines down
  • Overlapping (Step 3)- whether you want to share none, some or a lot of letters.  This feature is convenient since choosing not to overlap may be easier for your younger guests. 
  • Output Type - Choose depending on what you want to use it for.  If you're going to print from your computer, choose "HTML"
  • Words (Step 5)- Since you can type your own words, this is a fun activity to do with the birthday child.  They can decide on the words and it serves as a wonderful bonding time, not to mention what it does for self-esteem. 
  • The word search below has 21words and is for older kids. We suggest you keep it between 6 - 12 words for younger children.  Otherwise it becomes more like homework and less like fun!
  • Pick words they can associate with.  Words from the party theme like characters and action words like "racing" for a Cars party.  Something the children always enjoy is seeing their names, so you can add your guest list (unless you have a lot of children), otherwise just add the birthday child's name. 

This entire process of making your own personalized kids word search for your next birthday party really does only take a few minutes to make.

Disney Cars Printable Board Game

Want to have this cool ready-to-go board game at your next Disney Cars Birthday party?

Kids love to play board games, especially when they are easy and familiar.  This Cars themed printable game is perfect to keep children entertained while your other guests arrive.

Material needed:

  1. Cars Printable Board Game - Print colored or as a coloring page on card stock paper (buy at office supply stores). 
  2. Die - Use a die from another board game or pick some up at the dollar store.
  3. Race Cars - You can usually find race cars sold in a pack at the dollar stores.

How to play:

  1. Give each child a race car
  2. Take turns rolling the die
  3. Move up on the board the number of spaces you got on the die.
  4. First one to the finish line wins!

This cool printable board game can be colored online or printed in black and white and then colored by the children.  Coloring this board online is a great project to do with your child.  Let them experiment and "paint" the squares with different colors.  It's a lot of fun!

 Or, use it as a table "runner" by placing 1/2 boards side-by-side along the center of the children's table like the picture above.  You also have the option of changing the background.  The one above has a black background, but there are lots of colors to choose from.

To make a cool board game table runner, print one like the one above, then print the same board game with a yellow background and another with a red background. Tape together side by side and place along the center of the table.  Perfect for your next Disney Cars party.

If you're running short on time, you can print our ready-to-go colored board game HERE.

Note:  This board game comes in 2 parts, so you will be printing the "top" half and then the "bottom" half.

If you want to color your own, click HERE for top part.

Disney Cars Birthday Party Decorations

WOW! Look at this beautiful Disney Cars birthday party table setting! I know what you're thinking - that's a lot of work.......that's a lot of time......and most importantly.......that's a lot of money.

Well don't feel intimidated! This Cars table setting was done by Treasures and Tiaras, a company dedicated to decorating beautiful parties.

Use these pictures above as inspiration for ideas for your child's birthday party. Great kids birthday parties don't have to cost a fortune. Save money by purchasing solid color tablecloths, balloons, and napkins. And remember that party supplies such as balloons go a long way as part of your decorations.

LOOK at the balloon decoration below

This balloon decoration (those are my girls) was easily done and inexpensive. We used the following:

  • Solid color balloons
  • Balloon string
  • Helium tank
  • Scotch tape
  • And some helping hands


  • Blow up balloons and tie long pieces of string to balloons.
  • Starting with the first row (yellow balloons closest to floor) start taping them to the floor. Make sure to tape a little separate from the wall.
  • Then start the 2nd row, taping them in between the first row. Continue this until you have achieved the look you want.

The hardest part of this decoration is being on the floor taping the strings to the floor, but we took turns and finished in no time at all.

Below is a picture from a distance so you can see the effect. We were working on the last top row when I took this picture.

Disney Cars 2 Birthday Party

Look at this beautiful table setting for a Disney Cars 2 birthday party done by Treasures and Tiaras. Notice the bright color scheme, it sets the stage for what you know is going to be a great party.

Can You Spot the $avings?


If you look at the photos of the Disney Cars birthday party shown above, you'll notice that a Lightning McQueen party pinata was actually used as the table centerpiece. Using a large item like a piñata will help carry the Cars theme through in a big way.

You'll be able to spot a good number of ways to cut costs while still carrying your Cars theme out loud and strong. You can easily tell that it is a Disney Cars party theme but did you notice how a lot of the decorations and paper goods including the plates, cups, tablecloths, table runner, balloons, bunting, party favor boxes and chair decorations are generic solid colors?

Yet, you can still see that it's a Disney Cars birthday party. Solid color supplies are less expensive (and found at dollar stores) than the themed supplies and with the right combination you can make a beautiful and fun table setting.

The Lightning McQueen car sitting on the plate in the picture above is the Disney Cars paper craft we showed you above in "unique Disney Cars Invitations" and it can double as a party favor by putting treats inside.

Buy used tires for about $2.00 (make sure to clean tires thoroughly before using). Inflatable tires are also an option and can be used for decorations and/or games.

These colorful inflatable tires above add fun to any Disney Cars birthday party. Great to use as decorations, play games and/or give out as party favors. These tires are 21 inches in diameter. 

Prefer Black and White?

This inflatable black and white tire above measures 36 inches (91.4 cm). Click on Amazon button above for additional details.

Lightning McQueen Birthday Party Decorations

Look at this beautiful Disney Cars birthday party table setting by Treasures and Tiaras.  They've done a party-themed table that is inviting yet simple.  Notice that the only character items are the plates, cups and juice boxes.  This Cars party table is fun without being cluttered or busy.  Any child would love to be part of this party.

This is the Luigi's Flying Tires ride in California's Disneyland.  Carsland is the newest expansion at the Disneyland Resort and features the Cars theme throughout.

Notice the wall in the background with the hubcaps.  You can recreate this look for your party for practically nothing.  We made the paper plate hubcaps below in minutes.

Make about 10 hubcaps or so and you can use them as a backdrop for your cake table or around the party area. These are easy to make and add to your Disney Cars birthday party decorations.  To see how to make them visit our Disney Cars Crafts Page HERE.


If your feeling crafty, these colored hubcap flowers below would definitely brighten any child's birthday party and go perfectly with a Cars theme.  Paint them with the Disney Cars theme colors (red, yellow, black) or blue or green.  Use the Disney Cars characters for inspiration, like Fillmore's turquoise-green or Dinoco blue.  If your child is more of a Cars 2 fan, then Francesco Bernoulli's Italian colors of red, white and green would be a great idea.

Disney Cars Cake

Look at this Tow Mater Cake

This is a real cake with working headlights! Very clever.

Wow! Cakes have come a long way and I am always amazed at the creativity.  Our Disney Cars photo gallery includes all types of birthday cakes.  Whether you are looking for sheet cakes, 4-Tier creations, scenery cakes, "pull-apart" cupcake cakes or even cakes with working headlights (yes, that's right), you will find lots of ideas in our gallery that we hope will inspire you.  Go to Disney Cars Cake Photo Gallery Page

Want to make your own Lightning McQueen Cake?

Watch this video where she uses 1 sheet of cake to make the car, then puts buttercream icing, then the fondant icing on top. The hardest part is making sure you cut the pieces of cake into the right shape but just follow the video and you can do it.

My daughters like to make fondant cakes and it is easy to work with. The tricky part is transferring the fondant from your workplace to the cake. Watch how she uses her rolling pin to transfer fondant, making sure to place fondant in the middle of cake.

This is a great time to get your child involved. Have them help you make the cake. Not only do you get to spend quality time together but imagine your child's sense of pride when he(she) tells his(her) friends that he(she) made the cake!

Have fun and send us your pictures so we can share with our visitors.

What about the Food?

Cars Party Food

Think about the kind of party you want to have (sit-down, buffet, kids meal pre-made boxes) and the ages of your guests. For little ones, finger food is the easiest or you can have easy lunch meals. Below are some kids birthday party food ideas.

Cars Party Food Ideas

Finger Foods

Hot Dog Race Car - Hot dog, carrots, grape tomato and a little dip.  I would substitute the toothpicks for skinny pretzel  sticks (safer for little ones) or thin carrot sticks.  Open the holes with a toothpick, then insert pretzel/carrot stick.

Race Car Sandwiches - These sandwiches are perfect for a Disney Cars party theme and easy to make.  You can substitute the toothpicks with pretzel/carrot sticks (safer for little ones).

Race Car Family Sandwiches 

It's amazing how putting some buns and hot dogs together in just the right way will equal race car family sandwiches.  That is creativity!  

Mini Race Car Sandwiches - Race on over to these fun edible cars.  

Traffic Light Sandwiches - Everyone will be making a pit stop at your food table with these cool sandwiches.  Make with cheese, turkey or cream cheese  and fill the lights with colorful veggies.  Yummy and healthy!

Cheese Cubes - Assortment of cheeses. Add checkered flag toothpicks to go with the theme.

Disney Cars Cupcake Rings

These Cars cupcakes are easy to make and look super cool!  Frost the top of cupcakes lightly then dip in crumbled oreo cookies (without the creme stuffing). Then pipe 2 broken white lines to make the lanes.  This grass piping is a bit advanced but you can make something similar using a quart-size plastic bag, filling it with green frosting and ping it regular onto one side of the cupcake.  Then take a fork and put it in the green frosting, then pull up quickly to make wisps.  Then place this fun Cars cupcake rings and your ready to go!  You can find the Disney Cars cupcake rings here.

Tire Donuts - This one couldn't be easier. Place mini donuts on a chopstick or skewer and pile rest of donuts around skewer. Done!

Tip: Secure the skewer to the plate using tape.
