Grand Reopening Date Set as Disney California Adventure
Expansion Nears Completion
The five-year expansion of Disney California Adventure park culminates on June 15 with the opening of Cars Land and Buena Vista Street. The two highly anticipated themed lands will mark the final pieces of an expansion that has brought numerous new experiences to park guests, anchoring the Disneyland Resort as a multi-day vacation destination that will continue to drive tourism to Southern California.
With four new attractions – Radiator Springs Racers, Luigi’s Flying Tires, Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree and the Red Car Trolley – new dining and shopping locations such as Flo’s V8 Café, Ramone’s House of Body Art, Radiator Springs Curios and Carthay Circle Theatre, park guests will enjoy a full day experience at Disney California Adventure park that will immerse them in innovative technologies and storytelling as only Disney can do.
Disneyland Resort Hosts Celebration of Creativity in the Deaf Community
The Disneyland Resort hosted SIGNin’ in the Street at Downtown Disney last month, a first-of-its-kind event at any Disney property celebrating creativity in the deaf community. The event, which underscores Disney’s commitment to diversity, provided guests the opportunity to learn more about deaf culture through performances, workshops, screenings and celebrity presentations. Appearances by the stars of ABC Family’s hit series “Switched at Birth” rounded out the weekend, which drew thousands to experience the talent of both deaf and hearing artists alike.
