This week I am heading to California to spend several days at Disney California Adventure Park getting an early look at the two new adventures theme parks including Cars Land, and Buena Vista Street! The expansion started in 2007 and on June 15th it will officially open it’s doors and be complete! To see the expansion in numbers check out this impressive list of all the amazing number that went into the Disney California Adventure!
Being the mother of a son who is OBSESSED with the Cars movies, I can’t wait to see Cars Land! From all accounts Cars Land promises to be “One of the largest and most elaborate attractions ever created for Disney park.” Radiator Springs Racers winds through downtown Radiator Springs and Ornament valley in a high speed fun ride!
Flo’s V8 Cafe is lighting up the night and filling up your stomach! Flo’s V8 Cafe will be serving up house-made, single-serving pies include strawberry-rhubarb, apple-cheddar, chocolate mud, blueberry-peach and cherry, created by Disneyland Pastry Chef Jean-Marc Viallet.
And let’s not forget the two stars of Cars Land! You and your family can meet Mater and Lightening McQueen! McQueen and Mater will be greeting park guests daily outside the Cozy Cone Motel on Route 66.
I am sure I am barely even scrapping the surface on all there is to do at Cars Land! Make sure you come back after my visit to learn more about what will be at the park for your little and big “Cars” fans alike to enjoy!
I am also really excited to see the opening of Buena Vista Street, Carthay Circle Theater, and the Red Car Trolley. I imagine that it will be a bit like stepping into Disney of a time long ago. Inspired by the transportation system that once ran in Southern California, The Red Car Trolly will be able to take park guests along Buena Vista Street and though Hollywood Land.
Not to be missed will be the Carthay Circle Theater. This will serve as the premiere dining location in Disney California Adventure!! How cool is that! I am sure it will be a culinary delight!
Finally I am really looking forward to checking out the nightly entertainment of the Mad T Party! It is being touted as “a party like no other in Hollywood Land, a new nighttime experience where up is down and everything is wonderfully off-kilter!”
