PHOTOS: First Look Inside Buena Vista Street – Outdoor Dining Set Up Ahead of Reopening, Red Car Trolley Decorated for Christmas at Disney California Adventure

While it will be some time until Disneyland Resort fully reopens, guests will be able to enter Disney California Adventure tomorrow. The theme park will welcome guests to shop and dine on Buena Vista Street. The Orange County Register shared photos from Buena Vista Street today in a post to its website. The photos give us a preview of what to expect tomorrow.

No admission will be charged to enter the theme park. Visitors will enter Buena Vista Street to the right of the Disney California Adventure entrance. The exit is on the opposite end of the turnstiles. When Buena Vista Street reaches capacity, guests will join a mobile wait list.

Additional seating has also been added near Award Wieners. Corn Dog Castle corn dogs will be available at Award Wieners.

No advanced dining reservations can be made. At Carthay Circle Lounge, guests will be seated on a first come, first served system. Once the restaurant reaches capacity, guests will be able to join a virtual waitlist. Quick service locations Smokejumpers Grill and Award Wieners will utilize mobile ordering via the Disneyland app. Schmoozies smoothie stand, Clarabelle’s Hand-Scooped Ice Cream, and Mortimer’s Market will remain closed. Vending carts will sell park treats like popcorn, churros, cotton candy, ice cream, hot dogs, turkey legs, candy and drinks.

At the wait times board, every attraction is listed as “Temporarily Closed. Check Back Later.” Naturally, the attractions will not open until Disneyland Resort fully reopens.

The Red Car Trolley has been decorated for Christmas, and will be available as a photo op on Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood Land. It seems there are ropes set up behind it, capping off the very end of Hollywood Land to keep guests from heading further into the park… or catching a glimpse of the up-and-coming Avengers Campus.
