It looks like plans have changed again for the California Adventure Preview Center. Originally, it was to be in the un-used San Francisco buildings, next to Golden Dreams. The plan was then changed for it to be in the Esplanade. But according to the latest Annual Passholder newsletter, the Preview Center will now be inside the park. The only question is where:
“Walt’s California” is Coming to Disney’s California Adventure® Park
Imagine that you are an ambitious young animator back in the roaring 1920’s. Step off a gleaming steam train and take in the beauty of a sun-soaked California paradise that promises to make all your dreams come true.
That’s the way it all began for Walt Disney, and soon it will be the way it begins for everyone who enters the re-imagined entry plaza at Disney’s California Adventure® Park.
“The creative evolution of Disney’s California Adventure® Park will connect Guests to Walt’s own California adventure and reflect the place that he found when he first arrived with a cardboard suitcase in his hand and a head full of dreams,” said Jay Rasulo, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts.
Beyond the new entry plaza, Guests will discover exciting new attractions, fantastic new entertainment, unique new stores and delicious new dining opportunities, including:
- A major new attraction based on the animated Disney classic “The Little Mermaid”
- An amazing nighttime spectacular that plays out on the sparkling waters of Paradise Bay
- Toy Story Mania! — a new attraction that combines the fun of classic boardwalk games and the Disney*Pixar “Toy Story” films.
- A 12-acre “Cars” Land that recreates the town of Radiator Springs, complete with three amazing new attractions featuring characters from the hit Disney*Pixar film “Cars.”
Work on some of these enhancements has already begun, and the rest will follow in phases. It’s expected that everything will be completed within the next five years.
Be sure to keep an eye out for a special preview center opening soon inside Disney’s California Adventure® Park — and check back here for updates!
