A Disney park is a very immersive environment, transporting guests to another time and place. It is no secret that when Disney California Adventure park first opened, it lacked this type of environment. But that is all changing!
Disney is hard at work re-constructing the park, and one area will prove to be like stepping back in time. Buena Vista Street, the new 1930’s Los Angeles inspired entrance area of Disney California Adventure, will greet guests as they enter the newly redesigned theme park. The entire area has taken inspiration from the time in which Walt Disney arrived in Los Angeles to begin his career as an animator. The atmosphere on Buena Vista Street, complete with period specific buildings, landscaping, lamp posts, and a street car system, will definitely be an immersive one. But what about populating the area with characters for which guests can interact with? Well, as it turns out, that’s just one of the new aspects for Buena Vista Street.
The time frame for Buena Vista Street was a time in a American History of optimism and oppotunity, and guests will be able to interact with the “Citizens of Buena Vista Street” in that capacity. Imagine a patrol officer stopping foot traffic for the Red Car Trolley, or a lady with a bike walking by. When you are on Buena Vista Street you will feel as if you have stepped back into 1920’s and 30’s Los Angeles.
Buena Vista Street will open at Disney California Adventure park this June 15th
