In a recent interview, Disney President and CEO Bob Iger confirmed that the Cars Land expansion of the Disney California Adventure theme park will open in June, completing the 5 year expansion and improvement.
When the expansion of the park is complete this summer, guests will have a total of eight themed lands to explore.
The park will feature two new areas, the redesigned entrance called Buena Vista Street and the entirely new Cars Land. As well as the new areas there will be name changes for different areas of the park.
The Hollywood Pictures Backlot will be changed to Hollywood Land, a clear reference to the original iconic Hollywood hills sign that dropped the “land” many years ago.
The Golden State area will be referred to separately as Condor Flats and Grizzly Peak.
A Bugs Land and Pacific Wharf retain their current titles.
Each of these lands will be filled with even more to do and see at Disney California Adventure park, including Mad T Party and Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop.
All of these new lands and experiences will cap off a five-year expansion which has included the addition of Toy Story Mania!, Mickey’s Fun Wheel, “World of Color,” Silly Symphony Swings, The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure, Goofy’s Sky School, Paradise Garden Grill and Boardwalk Pizza and Pasta.
These changes will officially take place this summer when the $1 billion+ expansion is completed.
