Good morning! This day in Disney history March 30th, 2008. Seasons Of The Vine, an opening day attraction at DCA, closes down due to low attendance.
Seasons of the Vine was an education film on the making of wine in California. The short video, narrated by actor Jeremy Irons, covers the history of winemaking in California, as well as the four season cycle on a vineyard. The former theater reopened More...
Very interesting. I never knew that that is what it was. Winemaking is definitely a big part of California but it almost seems as though it were out of place- like something they did to sort of fill in the space. I never did go in there but I do appreciate what it is now. It is fun to feel like an insider and see what is next for these wonderful Parks. I think it's great that they kept the vineyards and the theme. Thanks Duchess! - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint

They do still make wine there I believe...someone please correct me if I'm wrong. I know DCA used to be in a partnership with Mondavi and they only sold and served THIER wine. But in 2001 Mondavi said its role had shifted from ‘partner’ to ‘sponsor’, and was writing off a $12-$13 million loss. So yes, it wasn't very popular... - Duchess_SMK 3290.4 #11 9:17AM

I remember going in there when I was younger and thinking it was boring... then again, I was a kid lol! But i do like how the space is being used now. It's very fun to go inside and check out all the preparations for upcoming projects by the Disney Imagineers. - rbeezy
