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 i  More...

I remember watching on the news on opening day. The crowds they had predicted never materialized, and the park was quiet. I never saw it for myself until 2006, so some of the original attractions were already gone by then. I think the old DCA was a bit cheezy in places. The movie with Whoopi Goldberg was just so unintentionally funny and cheezy. The videos of Superstar Limo are just plain creepy. The recent updates, including Buena Vista Street and Cars Land, were definately needed and have made this the awesome park it is today. - ScooterMike  1962.2 #66 8:03AM
I miss the Whoopi movie. Spot on with that. - Jacqueline  580.0 #308 8:58AM

I remember when DCA opened but I was not living in California at the time... It wasn't until about 3 years later that I saw the new park. My honest opinion of the park was disappointment. I thought it lacked the Disney qualities I've known for years. The new park is a lot better but I still consider Disneyland to be where the Magic really is. Thank you SMK for another great Disney History! - IMissDisney  1205.3 #119 8:15AM
I agree. It's hard to be DCA next to the original and most famous park in the world! - MoonWillow  381.1 #529 8:36AM

I agree too, I took my son for his 5th birthday. I was very disappointing. - nicealex77  616.1 #284 12:48PM
I remember when DCA opened. I was so annoyed I could not go. We went when I was 6 month pregnant so we saw it from a distance while it was being build which was torture! A whole bunch of our friends went and kept telling us about it. But I was in my last bit of pregnancy and due any time with my first child and no one would let me go. It took 4 1/2 years before I got to go but we've had passes ever since then so it sort of makes up for it LOL I can't believe it's been 12 years! - Autoalice  159.6 #2449 1:33PM

I have had a few very rough days and just got home to packages from 2 wonderful MWers! Bubbaloo made me the most beautiful, amazing Beauty and the Beast shoes. They are incredible. I love you so much Sis! I also got my cherry sours and lots of other treats from HMACIF! Not gonna lie, the sour balls are already half gone. But don't worry Nick and Donnie, your ball is waiting for you! Thank you girl  More...

Since it’s now official that Cars Land and Buena Vista Street are now open, I can now post my review online. I’ll try not to give away the entire experience because I know a lot of you haven’t had to chance to explore Cars Land yet, but here’s more of a general view of the new land. I’ve also been sort of quiet about my experiences in Cars Land, prior to the opening, because there is s  More...
Bravo!!  That was great!! Thanks so much for this. And wow!  That you kept it in so long.  Thanks again!  Can't wait to visit! - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4697.1 #20 1:18PM
Thanks for your thoughts, BBM! My family and I attended the preview on Monday and, something I'd like to add- the imagineers did a a fantastic job thinking about the visitors' experience. There was SHADE. All the queue areas were well shaded (A/C in Luigi's!). I had stopped to buy a hat on BV street because I forgot mine and thought I would bake over the course of the hot afternoon in Cars Land... But we didn't! Another note on the shops on BVS- they were wonderful! So much merchandise I had never seen! They were spacious and carpeted and the ceilings in the toy shop changed colors! Big thumbs up. My final comment was how friendly and excited all of the CM's I encountered were. I am so excited for them, CA Adventure's future as a park, and our wonderful Disney! - MoonWillow  381.1 #529 8:36PM
Glad you enjoyed your visit! - BaseballMickey_CM  6488.2 #12 9:04PM
So good to know!! Besides running out of things to do in CA before, it was always so much hotter than DL. It's like they knew this and made it better! 😄 - PeachKay  311.1 #757 10:51AM
Thank you!  I've never been too excited about CA but I can't wait to explore it in December now! - Aurora1111  98.5 #3444 10:05AM
Something I love about Disney is the fact that even the people who work there get just as excited (if not MORE excited) about new lands/attractions at the parks. I also love that you said you couldn't wait to see how guests would react to the changes! It's kind of like when you take a friend whose never been to Disneyland/DCA and how you're watching them react to what their seeing for the first time. Great review! I hope you get as much joy watching us experience it as WE will undoubtedly get from actually experiencing this new look for DCA! - PumpkinKing  41.2 #4738 11:14AM

And here is my MouseWait story.,,,video link is at the bottom.....My love for Disney has run deep since I was a little boy..I went to the parks every weekend and all I thought about was working there when I was old enough...Kinda crazy to think now that I am the 3rd generation in my direct family whom have been Cast Memebers...My Grandfather in 1956, my Dad in the late 80s until 2000s and then me.  More...

Man Dave,the post is good enough without a video! - theRealDisneygirlforevr  175.3 #2191 9:32PM
What can I say Dave? I've know you for over 15 years and you finally made me cry!! I was doing ok until I saw the pic of me and your Grandma. That is one of my most cherished pics!! This was such a great video. I loved seeing all the fun you've had since you found MW. I don't know how you kept it a secret from me, but glad you finally told me about it one night!! Thanks for introducing me to MW :) Thanks for all you do for MW and thanks for being my friend all these years :) - caramiapoohAKAface  3306.1 #32 10:00PM

Ok everyone. I need major pixie dust and crossed fingers. Tomorrow I officially will be working for the MOUSE. And tomorrow I find out where I will be working in DCA Attractions. Hoping, hoping, hoping its in CARS LAND!!!! So, please, please, please keep your fingers crossed for me! And I couldn't wait and I added CM to my name...WOOHOO! ((HUGS)) for you all! ❤

I am witholding my pixie dust due to fact that you got it! You are Charlie at the end of Willy Wonka. You have the job. Uber congrats, and no matter where you work, you are a CM! Heck, I would clean the toilets if it would give CM in my name. :-) - SorcererBHhaha  409.0 #486 11:26AM
Sorry to like deflect everyone's pixie dust but cars land isn't a new hire area! >.< sorry to ruin the moment but I just wouldn't want you to be too sad afterwards when you find out on your paper that it isn't any of the new attractions... Sorry.....congrats though! - TeenMickey  388.6 #516 11:10PM

So time for happy post: you know even though we all have our ups and downs here as a MW family I realized something big tonight. I love you guys:).... For those of my FB friends who know already... But many of you do not, I have been dealing with a lot of weird "what is life about" feelings and have been really down about it lately like waking up middle night crying:( type of down. But tonight ge  More...

Life is about chasing perfection in order to catch excellence. It's about the tiny little miracles that go unnoticed everyday. It's about a web of blessings so profound and beautiful it makes you cry. It's about humility to a higher power and faith that makes you embrace your fears. - WeMetAtDisneyLand  41.9 #4707 6:19AM
Sometimes, when you can't take it anymore, its about gratitude. Never met a bummer I couldn't kill with gratitude. And it's about staying sane on a daily basis. I'm a fan of routine. Prayer, exercise, sunshine and regular trips to Disneyland always do me right. Thought I'd share. - WeMetAtDisneyLand  41.9 #4707 6:42AM

Question: do you use the Disnneyland RR for transportation around the park or as an attraction. We use it to bypass crowds and get off our feet. Always the last ride of the night.
