The idea of the Cozy Cone Motel, which Sally operates in the animated Disney Pixar “Cars” movie actually comes from the Wigwam Motel.
The Cozy Cone Motel lives to be a real deal, Pixar researched Route 66 in depth and chose a number of actual icons which were then transformed to in animated form.
Look closely and you’ll notice too! As Americans took to the highway in the early 1930s in search of greater opportunities, buildings of creative shapes and sizes formed alongside the roads.
The Wigwam Motel is a relic of this time period, built and invented in the early 30s by Frank Redford. Redford owned and “franchised” out his patent on the motel’s design during this movement period, which led to a total of seven Wigwam Villages.
The condition of four of the seven motels unfortunately detroiated over time and were ordered to be bulldozed by city officials.
The Wigwam Motel was one of the few and most popular family-fun roadside motels, which would have been comparable to a amusement park nowadays.
The classic motel continues to draw in travelers and tourists from all over the World, as they come to get not only a visual but also get to take home an experience of United States history.
The motel recently went through a total renovation and remains as a piece of history to be shared among the many generations to come.

My mom was an art teacher for 34 year and my dad was a parts manager. I guess you could say I was destined from birth to create an animated film about Cars

Things to do today
  • Go to Disneyland around noon (well, leave around noon, get there around one).
  • Wander around looking for Scavenger hunt stuff.
  • Try to find the people that have helped me so far, and make sure to write down the names of the new people who help me. (Wendy is planning on using this whole experience as a “magical moment” next time she has a meeting, and I plan on giving her a list of everyone I talk to cause everyone has been super nice. Except the guy at HTH… he was kinda grumpy. But he had a 95 minute line of grad night kids so I was sympathetic. Plus he was still helpful).
  • Meet up with Wendy-bird at 1530 when she gets off.
  • Probably do more scavenger hunt cause she loves me.
  • GO TO CARDS LAND FROM 1830-2200!!! (yeah, I’m excited)
  • There will be pictures from time to time while i’m wandering around the park, but none inside cause there’s no pictures allowed :-(
