Grand Re-Opening of Disney California Adventure
This morning Bob Iger, Mickey Mouse, and many other Cast Members came together in front of the Carthay Circle Theatre for the Grand Re-Opening of Disney California Adventure. This wasn’t just a party for a fresh coat of paint but instead a celebration of a park that now is deemed to be entering its second life after a five year makeover.
The morning began last night with guests camping out from late afternoon until the ceremony at 8:00 this morning. Following the ceremony, thousands of guests streamed in. As they came in Disney Chairman and CEO, Bob Iger greeted them along with Chairman of Disney Parks and Resorts Tom Staggs and Disneyland Resort President George Kalogridis.
Within minutes of opening, it became apparent that Cars Land is going to be a very popular place. Within hours, Cars Land became a parking lot. Buena Vista Street kept a steady buzz all day with guests watching the various shows and enjoying the locals (streetmosphere and characters).
