Disneyland Resort is continuing to transform the Pacific Wharf area of Disney California Adventure to San Fransokyo Square from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Academy Award®-winning “Big Hero 6,” and we have new updates.
Starting in mid-July, guests will be able to sample new San Fransokyo selections at Lucky Fortune Cookery, and the Port of San Fransokyo Cervecería will officially open, drawing inspiration from its tri-cultural influences with signage in English, Japanese and Spanish.
Aunt Cass Café, the second bakery café operated by Hiro’s loving aunt, will serve dishes such as soups in freshly-baked Boudin sourdough bread bowls, and more inspired, by Japanese cuisine. On the outside of this quick service restaurant, there is a mural of Aunt Cass’ lucky pet cat, Mochi.
An old fishing net tannery across from the café is being converted to Rita’s Turbine Blenders, a giant drink dispenser offering delicious margaritas and icy beverages. This refreshment stand is owned and named after the repair technician who maintains the floating wind turbine, resembling a giant koi fish, that sits atop the structure.
In addition to these locations, you can expect new menu items at Cocina Cucamonga and Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop.
We’ll share the new menu details as Disneyland shares them, but it seems there will be a good variety of places to eat in this new area.
When the transformation is completed later this summer, locations across the area, from the Cappuccino Cart outside the San Fransokyo Gate Bridge to The Bakery Tour, will also be decorated in street art and colorful banners celebrating the Big Hero 6 team after their victory over Yokai.
Guests will be able to shop at the San Fransokyo Maker’s Market, a storefront stocked with unique apparel, homewares and more featuring Baymax and friends.
In newly released concept art, the market’s shelves are situated on robot storage cases, with decommissioned battle bots on display. If you turn a sharp eye to the rafters overhead, you may even spot the local battlebot champion, Hiro’s Megabot.
Across the way, a vending machine will dispense collectible golden medallions featuring Baymax and other iconic images from San Fransokyo.
As we mentioned previously, Baymax will be saying hello to guests outside the Hamada Bot Shop. This is where the Big Hero 6 team builds and innovates their hi-tech gear, so you may also see a few of their upcoming inventions.
But it’s now been confirmed that Hiro will be joining Baymax, which is great news for “Big Hero 6” fans.
