Part of the décor includes colorful murals made of tiles that create a story, while also reflecting the architecture and the Spanish influence in California during the 1920s. The video below goes behind the scenes with Imagineers as they work with a vendor in Los Angeles to create each tile. Make sure you take time to see these beautiful murals this summer at Disney California Adventure park when Buena Vista Street, Carthay Circle Theatre and Cars Land open on June 15.

The New Beuna Vists Street is a Blast From the Past. Tile Murals that will line the street.

The first in-park Starbucks is now slated to open this June on Buena Vista Street with the re-launched Disney California Adventure. Starbucks will take up residence in the Fiddler, Fifer and Practical Café, as an odd hybrid of a regular Starbucks and a Disney-run operation. While the Fiddler, Fifer and Practical Café (dubbed the Pig Café by Anaheim’s Foods group) will maintain all the great 1920’s theming and architecture already shown to the public, subtle Starbucks logos in rubbed brass and period-appropriate signage will be added near the entrance doors. It won’t scream Starbucks with green awnings and bright logos like your neighborhood location, but once anyone gets within sight of the front door they’ll be able to spot the logo and tell that it’s a Starbucks.
the full article can be read here.

Thanks for the input! Yeah, I suspect it will too! It will be so cool to have another area to see the fireworks from in DCA. Obviously PP is probably the best with the railing, room and no obsticles. I have a feeling BVS will be VERY popular for folks who want to stay in that park and I suspect will be spending a lot more time in that area now. Hopefully CL will make it 3 good areas, but we'll see!

No idea on seating, but DLR likes to provide outside seating wherever possible so it would not surprise me.
ACTUALLY, I just found out this answer today with a bit of news about the cafe via Al Lutz over at Mice Chat. Not only will there be outdoor seating (YAY) there will also be Starbucks on the menu! I guess they finalized it and it become part of the Practical Cafe. Here is a snippet:

Once inside the Pig Café, the restaurant will operate like a traditional Starbucks during the morning hours just after the park opens. It’s at that time of day that the four separate espresso machines each staffed by a Starbucks-trained barista will be going full blast (where most of Starbucks’ “big” stores only have two machines), and the refrigerated cases near the front will offer a selection of Starbucks own grab-n-go breakfast and pastry items. Later in the day the location will switch over solely to a Disney created menu for lunch and dinner options, while Starbucks espresso drinks will still be offered through park closing. Over a hundred seats at a few dozen tables inside and out at the Pig Café should soak up most of the lunch and dinner crowd, although it’s expected that the morning business will be mostly to-go orders as people stream into the park and head to Cars Land with their Venti Latte and Danish.

Cool huh!!

I have seen nothing about menus. Heck, even the CCT menu seems to be under wraps.
Well we at least know ONE thing on the menu! I hope we get something soon, but I have a feeling with either this or the ultra expensive CCT to eat, the Practical Cafe will be one busy place most days, especially with Starbucks there.

132.5 seconds. Flat.

Really, there are rumors of singers on the trolley and such. So no way to know if the trolley will stop or go continuously.
LOL, well hopefully it will be a bit longer than that! And no, there will definitely be stops! Four in fact! If its at least 5 mins, it will seem like a worthy ride IMO. I guess with all the stops, it will probably be a bit longer just to load and unload.

I suspect yes. Things that pay tribute to Snow White would be obvious.
I really hope so! I think it was a mistake not to have one exhibit/attraction that really focuses on either Walt or the history of L.A. at the time the entrance takes place. I wish they built something on the first floor of the theater and then kept the second floor open for a restaurant and a lounge. Seems a bit of overkill to have two stories, but they didnt ask me lol. Anyway, lets hope there will be something.

The track lenth of the RCT is about 1.5-1.75 times the length of DL's HDT. So this would be about 5 minutes from BVS to ToT. Though there is another thing to factor in.

The RCT doesn't just go end to end. It has a stop in Carthay Circle. In some plans also a stop in in Hollywood, though this may or may not happen. There had not been built a station in Hollywood, though maybe it won't need a structure just a easily built sign. Picture below which you can see in the Blue Sky Wine Cellar in DCA, notes the Hollywood East and West stops.



Additionally this may add some time, though not during the travel. At the end of the line the Trolley's charge their batteries. They do this by induction the same way the Finding Nemo Submarines do. So while simpler to load and unload than the subs, there turn around time may be similiar.


On the physical model of BVS there are some umbrella tables, only a strip lining the building front. You can see them in the drawing above. Not the big circles, the tiny ones between them and the building.
Well I heard through the Disney blog that it WILL be four stops now, from a few months ago. I personnally think thats a bit of overkill and there shouldnt be a stop at the pump house on Carthay Circle thats planned, but keep just keep it on Hollywood Blvd as that map illustrates. That would be smack in the middle of the route. I just dont see the point if we are stopping every 90 seconds or so! But not complaining, just happy its all happening!

And I do see the umbrellas on the map! But Al Lutz confirmed there will be out door seating as well. Probably not a big area as the map shows, but its sill better than nothing!

Anyway thanks again!

While this has to do with the expansion, I think all the HVAC interested already known about this Thermal Energy Storage Tank. You can see it from Katella Avenue.

How exciting. Most of it sounds great! Can't wait to go back!

Am I the only one who doesn't appreciate Star Bucks? Ugh, just what the world needs one more shop selling over-roasted coffee to the masses. Couldn't they have brought in GOOD coffee? Guess we'll just keep bringing our own pot and making our own coffee. Oh well, it has become a tradition.

Details of the Cars Land street entertainment Roll In.

Quote:
We recently told you about some of the shows and characters coming to Buena Vista Street at Disney California Adventure park. Well, that was just the beginning! When Cars Land opens June 15, the tiny town of Radiator Springs will also be teeming with atmosphere entertainment inspired by the Disney•Pixar film, “Cars.”

Big and red on the outside, gentle and good-natured on the inside, Red the Fire Truck shows up with his sirens blaring and his bell ringing, heading to meet up with his good buddy, a Volunteer Firefighter. The Firefighter lets everyone know the flowers in the area need watering. It’s “Red to the Rescue,” but each time the Firefighter attempts to use Red’s hose, it backfires on him! In all the fun, the plants manage to get wet, and you might too!

Bringing a completely different kind of beat to the street is “DJ’s Dance & Drive.” DJ, the ultimate party car, rolls into town with his giant speakers, built-in disc changer and his very own dance party, led by a girl named Spinner. This gang stops traffic everywhere they go, creating a spontaneous, interactive dance party. Spinner and the crew teach us moves like the Overdrive, the Reverse and the Hairpin Turn, while DJ calls up the hits, from “Life in the Fast Lane” to “Car Wash.” DJ’s going to shift Cars Land into high gear!

Cruise on down to Cars Land this summer at Disney California Adventure park. The residents there will be glad you rolled into town!
