With the openings of The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure, Star Tours and “Mickey’s Soundsational Parade,” Disney Soundsational Summer is getting underway – and we’re already looking ahead to what’s coming next.
Inspired by the Disney Pixar blockbuster “Cars,” Cars Land will feature three immersive family attractions showcasing characters and scenes from the movie, including one of the largest and most elaborate attractions ever created for a Disney park: Radiator Springs Racers. Other Cars Land attractions will include Luigi’s Flying Tires (remember the Flying Saucers in Tomorrowland?) and Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree when the new land opens in 2012.
Also coming in 2012, a new entrance will welcome guests in Disney California Adventure park. A new entrance gate will take guests into Buena Vista Street, immersing them in the atmosphere Walt Disney experienced upon first arriving in Los Angeles in the 1920s. Buena Vista Street will feature new Southern California Red Car Trolleys and the Carthay Circle Theatre, modeled after the historic theatre, which was the site of the 1937 world premiere of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.”
Also, just announced today: Carthay Circle Theatre will become home to a new lounge and an elegant restaurant, designed to be the premiere dining location in Disney California Adventure park.
