Calling All Disneyphiles – Your Chariot Awaits

People who love Disney tend to really love Disney. Disney fandom means visiting Disney Parks, going on Disney Cruises, watching Disney movies and television shows, or going bonkers over all the Disney collectibles and merchandise. Or many or all of those things. If that describes you or someone you know, then here’s where it gets even better.

You can get a Disney car. Yes, really. A Disney car.

What Does a Disney Adult Need? A Ride that Reflects their Fandom, of Course. 

A Disney Adult is defined as “a millennial adult, with or without kids, that can’t stop talking about Disney,” including both the movies and the parks. Even if they do have kids, they are still more obsessed than their kids would be. Disney adults often get a bad rap, but Hyundai is clearly in their corner. Kids, after all, can’t drive cars.

First revealed as a concept car at the 2023 New York Auto Show, The Hyundai Ioniq 5 Disney100 Platinum Edition is now available for sale at select Hyundai dealerships starting at $59,400. This marks the first time Hyundai vehicle designers have created a vehicle with visual creative input from Walt Disney Imagineering. And, you just know the talent that has produced creative immersive park experiences and blockbuster animated movies will blow your mind when harnessed to create a whimsical, functional, and green design you can enjoy every day. 

Vehicle production will be extremely limited, with only 1,000 units produced, so if owning this car makes all your dreams come true, you’ll want to hop on your flying elephant or pumpkin coach and hightail it to your local Hyundai dealership

A Special Car for a Milestone Birthday 

Whether you are a Millennial, Gen-X, or identify with another generational group, Disney has likely been something you remember as far back as your memories go. I’m a 1970s kid, and my early Disney memories include the Sunday night Wonderful World of Disney in advance of my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was nine. It’s never not been a part of my life. 

The Walt Disney Company recently celebrated its 100th anniversary on October 16, 2023. Disney100 is a celebration of timeless storytelling and beloved characters. The all-electric Ioniq 5 Disney100 Platinum Edition is part of that celebration. 

“We are honored to have joined Disney in celebrating its 100th anniversary,” said Angela Zepeda, chief marketing officer of Hyundai Motor America. “From all-new ads featuring iconic Disney movie scenes to the introduction of a vehicle with visual creative input from Walt Disney Imagineering, together our brands illustrated there can be magic in every journey. We look forward to further collaboration with the beloved Disney brand through our shared commitment to inspiring joy and innovation.”

Possibly the Best Car Hype Advertising Ever

Disney is rolling out special advertising for the Hyundai IONIQ 5 with the Platinum Road Trip series starring John Stamos and Josh Peck. The YouTube series shows the actors having a “Bro Day Road Day” as they drive the Hyundai Ioniq 5 Disney100 Platinum Edition by various landmarks that have special meaning for the Walt Disney company – the duo even points out “Hidden Mickeys” on the car’s hubcaps but of course, a true blue Disney fan will spot them immediately. 

The series features four episodes that live on the Disney YouTube channel. The episodes feature Stamos and Peck “bro-ing out” at meaningful locations in Disney history, such as the Tam O’Shanter restaurant frequented by Walt Disney and the inspiration for Snow White’s cottage. The videos are a mishmash of Disney facts that the average Disney lover might not know and a discussion of the features of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 Disney100 Platinum Edition. The series will also be supported by 30-second advertisements on Disney+ and Hulu, so don’t be surprised to see a teaser of this unique car and its story while you stream your favorite shows. 

And, I’m just gonna put this out there: As much as I loved watching Stamos and Peck explore some special Disney places, I’d like to see this with a couple of modern princesses at the wheel talking cars. We all know car love isn’t exclusive to men.

The scoop on the 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 5 Disney100 Platinum Edition

Besides this being the ultimate in far cars, the IONIQ 5 is a solid choice for anyone wanting to make the move to an all-electric car. I drove the Ioniq 5 when it first popped onto the market – not the special pixie-dusted version limited edition – and my first impression was “Holy interior space.” I liked the modern sleekness, ample legroom, and fast charging. These subtle Disney touches are just the icing on the cake as the brand moves into the current model year with this exclusive trim. 

Exclusive features: 

From the Disney100 logo on the headrests, center console, and floormats to being treated to Disney music when you start the car, the only way to describe these details is “magical.” 

  • Gravity Gold Matte exterior color;
  • Disney100-exclusive 20-inch Alloy Wheels;
  • Disney100 Platinum Edition badges on the front fenders;
  • Black “H” badges on the hood and liftgate;
  • Exclusive terra brown and mud gray two-tone interior color;
  • Disney100 logo debossed on front seat headrests and center console armrest cover;
  • Disney100 logo on the floormats;
  • Disney-inspired front and rear door trim strip;
  • Disney-themed intro on the interior screen upon turning the car on, which features iconic Disney music, the Disney100 logo, and pixie dust.

Whether you roll up to Disneyland in this beauty or whistle Disney tunes as you’re on your way to work, adventure is out there, and this car can help you discover it in style.
