ANAHEIM, Calif. -- 3TV is taking you behind the scenes at Disneyland to show you things you've never seen before.

Have you ever wondered how the magic makers of Disney are able to create so much magic?

The Walt Disney Imagineers use a virtual-reality theater thanks to new and improved technology. They specialize in creating the magic and were kind enough to take 3TV on a VIP tour behind the scenes to places most people never get to see -- places you might not even know exist.

They call the VR theater the DISH or digital immersive technology. This tool helps bring Disney ideas to life. It also helps designers avoid potential issues before construction and helps with the timing when it comes to storytelling inside Disney's themed attractions, like Cars Land, part of Disney California Adventure Park and home of Disney's most popular ride right now -- Radiator Springs Racers.

That's not all. Did you know there is an auto repair shop at Cars Land? This is where the happiest maintenance crew on Earth keeps Lightning McQueen all shined up and fine tuned.

From the virtual-reality technology that gave birth to Cars Land and Radiators Springs Racers to the secret garage that keeps the Cars in top racing form, it's Disney magic like you've never seen it before.
