Cars Land and Buena Vista Street Opening


April 3, 2012 1:16pm News

Here at Disneyland Resort we are very excited for the opening of Cars Land and Buena Vista Street June 15, 2012. The new Buena Vista Street will transport Guests to another time and place. Shawn Slater, Disney Parks Blog author and Communications Manager, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Creative Entertainment has more on what’s in store for the future of Disney California Adventure park.

When you enter Disney California Adventure park this summer, you’ll step back in time to Los Angeles of the 1920s and ‘30s on Buena Vista Street. One of the keys to creating a truly immersive environment like this is populating it with interesting and believable characters, so Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Creative Entertainment has been hard at work developing the unique personalities and show experiences that will bring the new entrance avenue to life.

Buena Vista Street is alive with optimism and opportunity. It’s a boulevard of dreams and dreamers… like the Citizens of Buena Vista Street. This cast of characters will interact with guests in this area of the park, creating impromptu laughs, smiles and memories wherever they go.

The Red Car News Boys roll into town on one of the shiny Red Car Trolleys, belting out “California, Here I Come!” Inspired by the spirit and style of Disney’s “Newsies,” the Red Car News Boys bring the latest headlines and engage their audience with fun songs of the ‘20s and ‘30s.

Over “On the Sunny Side of the Street,” the musical group Five & Dime arrives in Carthay Circle to jazz things up. This ensemble of friends and relations, headed up by a vivacious singer named Dime, has travelled down Route 66 all the way from Chicago in the hopes of making it big. Like everyone who comes to Buena Vista Street, great things await them just around the corner!
Stay tuned. We’ll have more to share about these entertaining new offerings coming to Disney California Adventure park as we get closer to the opening of Buena Vista Street on June 15.


:happy:I can’t wait!!!


It is going to be exciting. I know I’ll never see it :crying: Robert will have to take plenty of pictures for us and maybe videos???


I am ridiculously excited. Trip is planned for June 18th… just about can’t stand it!


:ohmy: that’s fantastic. Your job is to take videos as well~~


I’ll be looking forward to going down and visiting the new lands and seeing how they turned out. They look amazing from what I am seeing of them so far. Can’t wait! I unfortunately don’t have the funds for a trip anytime in the near future, but I guess the good side to that is the crowds will hopefully not be as bad as they will be when the new lands first open. We shall see…
