Cars Land and Buena Vista St. in DCA open on June 15th - new info added 5-10-12
 
Disney announced on March 7th that Cars Land and Buena Vista Street will officially open on June 15th.

Disney is keeping us excited about what's behind the walls. I've consolidated threads to keep a general list about Buena Vista St. and Cars Land together as new information comes out. For other information visit the Blue Sky Cellar inside DCA or on the net.


Disney California Adventure

Quote:

The wait is almost over! June 15 is the grand reopening of Disney California Adventure Park. Supercharge your Disneyland Resort experience in an expanded and re-imagined theme park packed with new adventures featuring familiar faces. Disney stories and Disney Characters bring the California dream to life in ways you've never imagined!

Closed on June 14

On June 14, Disney California Adventure Park will be closed to accommodate a media preview, and to make final preparations for its reopening. Disneyland Park, the Downtown Disney District and the Disneyland Resort hotels will remain open on that day, so you can play.


New Attractions and Entertainment

2 brand new lands are coming to Disney California Adventure Park on June 15! At Cars Land, the town of Radiator Springs starts up its engines with all-new attractions, shopping and dining — plus Lightning McQueen, Tow Mater, Sally, Luigi and the rest of the gang from Cars. When you arrive at Buena Vista Street, you'll step into the carefree Southern California that welcomed Walt Disney in the 1920s.

Cars Land

Cars Land is 12-acres of high-octane fun for the whole family! Rev it up with brand-new attractions, including Radiator Springs Racers, Luigi's Flying Tires and Mater's Junkyard Jamboree. Refill your stomach with delicious food at Flo's V8 Café, Cozy Cone Motel and Fillmore's Taste-in. Cruise over to stores like Ramone's House of Body Art and Radiator Springs Curios for specialty Cars Land merchandise.

Buena Vista Street

The adventure starts the moment that you enter the park through the new Streamline Moderne gates and set foot on Buena Vista Street. Stroll past charming interpretations of 1920s Los Angeles buildings — complete with Art Deco storefronts, Spanish-tile roofs, wrought-iron balconies, sparkling fountains and shade trees. Ride the Red Car Trolley past shops, restaurants and an iconic reproduction of Carthay Circle Theatre, where Walt Disney's first animated feature, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, premiered in 1937.

From Character meet-and-greets to all-new attractions, entertainment, dining and shopping spots, there is something for every member of your crew.

Attractions

Ready for some high-octane fun? Cars Land comes fully loaded with thrills and excitement:
•Buckle up at Radiator Springs Racers and compete with other speed seekers! Zip over hills, zoom around banked turns and cruise down straight-aways past the spectacular red-rock formations of Ornament Valley. Some of your favorite friends, like Sally, Luigi, Guido, Mack and Ramone, can be seen at the track.
•Climb aboard Mater's Junkyard Jamboree and enjoy a "tow"-rific ride. Baby tractors pull a Junkyard cart — with you in it — that gets twirled in time to the tunes broadcast through the magnificent Mater's Junkyard Jukebox.
•Steer yourself to Luigi's Flying Tires and take family fun to a whole new level: into the air! Glide, spin and find yourself lifting off the ground while you pilot your own comfortable, oversized radial tire.

Dining

Running on empty? Fill 'er up! These sustenance stations are run by some of your favorite "Car"-acters:
•Find full meals and good eats at Flo's V8 Café.
•For quick and tasty snacks, motor over to the Fillmore's Taste-In.
•Cozy Cone Motel offers a festive and "pun" menu, like chili "cone" queso, "cone" on the cob, pop-"cone" and (no joke) churros!

Entertainment

Small-town hospitality flows from Radiator Springs and brings good times to you!
•Red the Fire Truck brings impromptu water fun at the Courthouse in Cars Land.
•DJ gets you hip-hoppin' with bass beats that are pumpin' through his neon-blazin', thumpin' subwoofers and sweet speakers.
•Don't miss the transformation of Radiator Springs at sunset when the streets shimmer from sparkling lights and music pulses through the night air.

Shopping

Before you hit the road, stop by and stock up on Radiator Springs gear, including official Cars Land merchandise, at:
•Radiator Springs Curios

•Sarge's Surplus Hut

Truly just another teaser. I was surprised it didn't go into RSS. And if the cozy cone and fire stations don't get fountains out front I'll be dissapointed.

Thats neat :goodvibes Trying not to feel too disappointed that we will most likely miss it next summer when we visit.

Looks like fun! Thanks for sharing that link!

Added the Buena Vista street fly through to the OP. It was shown at D23 Expo today.

Matt you are right. I am at the Expo and saw the presentation today. There was not much new info on DLR. The coolest thing that was new to me was the Buena Vista street fly thru. People are commenting on how the info was light on DLR. It was much heavier on shanghai Disney and to some degree WDW Fantasyland. We were hoping for some bold info on the future of DL park but alas no.

Tomorrow there is a longer presentation on Buena vista street and Sunday on Cars Land so perhaps they are saving some of the good stuff.

Thanks

This would be my hopes too, that they are leaving finer details for their special presentations. BTW I saw the video because D23 on FB posted that it was from Expo.



I like the Buena Vista flythrough, a lot more detail than the Cars Land. I'm a bit surprised about the bridge, I expected the road to widen but I'm not sure it will. They have to remove some supports of the monorail beam to do so. But it looks like the GGB cladding around the supports, which is now gone will simply get the SoCal concrete cladding in the same place.

I also noticed you don't see what is being called the pumphouse, HG you and I may be the only people that have seen large pumps and it doesn't take that large a building to house one. I'm thinking it going to be small merchandise or ODV.

The other thing missing and this may be on purpose is the new(or older) partners statue.

We'll see in a couple days if any of this comes in later.

JH87 08-19-2011 10:10 PM

Wow Buena Vista Street really is beautiful. I can't wait to see that in person!
Cars Land looks fun. I still don't quite fully understand why they choose Cars to theme an entire land after, but I am still looking forward to it! Looks just like the movie so far! :)

kez518 08-19-2011 10:12 PM

Can't wait for this area to open! Such a smart idea!

Very resonable question. The only thing close to a land based on a movie is in Disney Hollywood Studios in WDW. It has Pixar Place, with one ride, TSM. Pizza Planet is even in the land, weird huh?

I'd guess Radiator Springs from Cars works because the Cadillac Range as a back drop is the perfect way to block views out of the park.

I like it all except the statue, which I hate.
