A new Disney California Adventure guidemap debuted this past week at Disneyland Resort, featuring two residents of the park’s newest land, Baymax and Hiro from “Big Hero 6.”
New Disney California Adventure Guidemap
The duo stands side by side on the front of the map, which features an accent purple gradient on the top and bottom. Hiro has his arms crossed, and shares a big smile alongside his personal health companion.
Fully unfolded, the guidemap offers a bird’s eye view of Disney California Adventure. Various asides advertising the Disney+ Play and Disneyland mobile apps are included, as well as a note to seek out Cast Members for any assistance. At the bottom of the map are five arrows pointing to parking areas, rideshare pick-up and drop-off, Downtown Disney District and the Disneyland Resort hotels, and Disneyland Park.
To the right of the map is a lengthy list of everything the park has to offer in each of its lands. Guests can meet Baymax and Hiro in San Fransokyo Square.
Looking at the fully unfolded map from the back, we can see the various folds, including the map legend, park rules, special considerations for attractions, and tips and information for your visit. There are also ads for the Disneyland Resort Magic Key (which recently paused sales again), and Disney PhotoPass.
To the right are graphics that explain how to download the Disneyland mobile app, and utilize its various features, like Mobile Order, Disney Genie+, and Individual Lightning Lane. There is also a section about MagicBand+ and its features.
San Fransokyo Square
San Fransokyo Square opened to guests in August 2023, offering several new food items and a meet and greet with Baymax and Hiro, as featured on the front of the new park map. Pacific Wharf was transformed into the reimagined land by turning the bridge into the Torii Gate Bridge, and adding various themed decorations, murals, and signage to bring everything together.
While the land did open last year, various improvements and additions have come to San Fransokyo Square, including repairs to the Torii Gate Bridge after post coverings were falling apart; Baymax lanterns, bulletin boards, and more; new theming at Baymax and Hiro’s meet and greet area; and the installation of the Port of San Fransokyo Sign along the waterfront.
Guests can find “Big Hero 6” merchandise, mostly featuring Baymax, at the San Fransokyo Maker’s Market.
