The Japanese words on the balcony below were added a few days ago and mean “hot fudge sundaes” and “chocolate,” just like the English words beside them.

Inside, Ghirardelli already updated their 3D animated mural to show a San Fransokyo earthquake.

San Fransokyo Square

Pacific Wharf will officially become San Fransokyo Square on August 31, when the rest of the venues will open and the Torii gate bridge will potentially be complete.

Baymax Bread

Pre-existing Pacific Wharf locations like the Cappuccino Cart and The Bakery Tour will now be decked out in street art and colorful banners celebrating the “Big Hero 6” team. Baymax Bread will also be available at the Boudin Bread Cart.

Guests will be able to interact with Hiro and Baymax (who will talk) outside the Hamada Bot Shop. Nearby will be the San Fransokyo Maker’s Market, a storefront stocked with unique apparel, homewares, and more featuring Baymax and friends.

Across from the Maker’s Market, vending machines will offer golden medallions featuring Baymax and other San Fransokyo images. Dining options include current Pacific Wharf venues and new options inspired by Asian cuisine and “Big Hero 6.”

Aunt Cass Cafe concept art

Pacific Wharf Café is being transformed into Aunt Cass Café, the second bakery café operated by Hiro’s aunt. It will serve soups in freshly baked Boudin sourdough bread bowls and more inspired by Japanese cuisine. 

An old fishing net tannery across from the café is Rita’s Turbine Blenders, a giant drink dispenser offering margaritas and icy beverages. This refreshment stand is owned by and named after the repair technician who maintains the floating wind turbine, resembling a giant koi fish, that sits atop the structure.
