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  1961.4 #60 8:03AM
I miss the Whoopi movie. Spot on with that. - Jacqueline  580.0 #292 8:58AM
Yes.. I agree Mike. - IMissDisney  1195.5 #108 10:14AM

My dad was one of the native Americans in the whoopi. movie. - Chumash28  951.1 #153 10:28PM
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  1195.5 #108 8:15AM
I agree. It's hard to be DCA next to the original and most famous park in the world! - MoonWillow  380.9 #502 8:36AM

I agree too, I took my son for his 5th birthday. I was very disappointing. - nicealex77  552.7 #307 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  157.3 #2444 1:33PM

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  3912.9 #23 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  380.9 #502 8:36PM
Glad you enjoyed your visit! - BaseballMickey_CM  5916.3 #13 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 #733 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 #3383 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  40.2 #4645 11:14AM

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 #4572 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.
