These refurbishments come to Mickey’s PhilharMagic come along with several other projects that are currently underway or recently refurbished at Disney California Adventure Park.

Work has begun on the Pacific Wharf area of the park, as it prepares to become San Fransokyo Square, themed after the fictional city from the movie Big Hero 6. The city in the film is a mix of San Francisco, California, and Tokyo, Japan. The process of repainting and preparing the bridge to be transformed to match the theme of the new area. Repainting it from its previous color to international orange, and the new look will feature torii gate-like towers on either end of the bridge which can be seen in the concept art Disney shared.

Along with this update, the entire Pacific Wharf area is currently transforming into San Fransokyo Square, and will have restaurants, a beer garden, and include a new greeting location for Baymax once open to guests.

The planned refurbishment of Grizzly River Run, which began in the early part of February 2023, is scheduled to end on March 17 after its yearly downtime. Other attractions within the park, such as Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind, closed in January of 2023 for a refurbishment, and Silly Symphony Swings has also been closed for a scheduled refurbishment and currently remains closed with no reopening date.

Radiator Springs Racers finished a short refurbish at the end of January, and has already opened to racers, as did WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure which reopened on January 10.
