DCA Contruction Update

  • by

This is me and my boys. I’m looking at the construction being done on the Carthay Circle Theatre in Disney’s California Adventure. My kids are just looking at a wall they can’t see over. Score one for tall (and old).

We recently (as in a couple of weeks ago, but I didn’t have time to post what with the trip to PIXAR and all that, oh, did I mention the trip to PIXAR?) took a weekend visit to the Disneyland Resort (Disneyland updates are here), and while we were there we took a peek at some of the upcoming changes to DCA. You know what I’m talking about:

Walking through Disney’s Hollywood Studios at night is one of my favorite things to do at Walt Disney World.

Grand Opening of Cars Land, Buena Vista Street and Carthay Circle Theatre on June 15th at California Adventure

Hang on Disneyland fans, the much anticipated grand opening of Cars Land, Buena Vista Street and the Carthay Circle Theatre at Disney California Adventure has been announced for June 15th with the park being closed on the 14th “to prepare” (aka to hold a media event). The new additions will serve as a capstone in the five year plan to revive the Disneyland resort and recover from some of the bad choices made when DCA originally opened. It’s still less than a perfect park, but these changes should go along way to closing the distance. I mean just look at that mountain range in Cars Land.

The great folks at Disney have shared this video with some behind the scenes glimpses of final details being added to DCA.

I know I’m ready, how about you? Okay then… more details below the jump:

Cars’ Land Radiator Springs Racers Preview Image

A nice move by the Disney Parks Blog for sharing this mockup photo-realistic of Radiator Springs Racers created by Disney’s Yellow Shoes Creative Groups. The picture is meant to be used in in advertisements or other promotional material as Cars’ Land zooms closer to reality. The mockup is a composite of images intended to give you a glimpse of what the attraction will look like when it opens this summer. It should provide a big jolt for California Adventure when it does.

Yes, it looks a lot like Test Track with eyes, but the pre-viz video that leaked last month show the attraction to be a lot more than that. Are you looking forward to the attraction or does the idea of an attraction based on Pixar’s ‘Cars’ not do it for you?

Below the jump is full video from the D23 Expo presentation focused on Radiator Springs Racers:
