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...

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

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 310.6 #557 10:51AM
Thank you! I've never been too excited about CA but I can't wait to explore it in December now! - Aurora1111

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

We've had quite a lot of fog lately! Sure makes the whole park much more magical.

Its between the castle and tomorrow land right by where pixie hallow is now. Used to be a little mermaid area and at one point in the early 90 had snow white stuff there - nathanchu 328.1 #483 5:13AM
This fountain is in Disneyland next to the entrance of Pixie Hollow across from Astro Orbitor. What you may be remembering is the colorful water fall that used to be at the Disney Hotel. But has been torn down :( - goofball 450.1 #274 5:43AM
Dude Seriously...one of the best pics i've seen on MW. - MeAndMy3Girls

In 957 words I give a brief update on the past three months in the lounge.......POTC has been closed for three days and you would have thought it was closed for 3 years...Erin found out that Denny Hamlin is not Ernies Son, a bunch of bananas fell out of a tree and fell on pixie, somebody took a picture of a sundae and got a button then posted a pic now everyone in the lounge has gained 10 lbs, Som More...

***NorCal Meetup*** As promised, here is the plan for the MW NorCal Meet up! Saturday September 24th, lets all meet at the Walt Disney Family Museum at 1:00 PM. After, we can head over to Pier 39, and enjoy dinner at the Wipeout Bar and Grill! Tickets are $20 for adults, and $12 for children 6-17. Most do not recommend ch More...
Just for those who dont know... The pier and the museum are quite a drive away from each other so plan accordingly. You will have to drive or find public transit to get there. Parking near and around the pier will cost $12-20. Might I suggest doing a picnic lunch there in the precisdio?? Its beautiful and sits directly next to the golden gate bridge... - michelledork

I love the idea of Picnic lunch at the Presidio. The wipeout is good but very taxing on pocket for food u get. Not trying to make this a deterrent comment just saying. Plus I think more would stick around. - Cricket
