Good morning! This day in Disney history Feb. 8th, 2001. Disney's 2nd Anaheim park & 8th theme park in the world, Disney's California Adventure officially opens along w/ the Grand Californian hotel. California Adventure is the centerpiece of a $1.4-billion expansion of what will now be called the Disneyland Resort. Michael Eisner's dedication on this day includes these words: "To all who believe in the power of dreams … Welcome! Disney's California Adventure opens its golden gates to you. Here we pay tribute to the dreamers of the past … the native people, explorers, immigrants, aviators, entrepreneurs and entertainers who built the Golden State. And we salute a new generation of dreamers who are creating the wonders of tomorrow … from the silver screen to the computer screen … from the fertile farmlands to the far reaches of space. Disney's California Adventure celebrates the richness and the diversity of California … its land, its people its spirit and above all, the dreams that it continues to inspire." Were you there on opening day? What did you think of the original DCA?
