The Boudin Bakery, an original attraction at Disney California Adventure, has reopened following an extensive refurbishment. Gone are the concrete floors and blue tiled walls, instead replaced with wooden paneling and informational points on both the Boudin Bakery process and the Boudin family story.
From the moment you see the Boudin Bakery’s entrance you’ll notice the improvements. A 1920’s Ford delivery truck sits near the entrance. Above the delivery truck, a new, larger sign directing guests to the “Bakery Tour”.
The entry lobby is much more inviting. The walls contain informational material on the Boudin Family, a screen showcasing a video on the sourdough making process, and a bread delivery wagon. The entrance video, hosted by Colin Mochrie and Rosie O’Donnell, survived the remodel. The tour is now a self guided tour, as apposed to the previous version which consisted of multiple television screens at various points. The televisions displayed Colin Mochrie and Rosie O’Donnell hurrying you along and providing information. The new version is inviting and you definitely do not feel rushed. This provides guests with the opportunity to browse the informational points along the walls and windows.
Additional seating for the nearby Pacific Wharf Café was also added inside the area and windows have been enlarged providing for ample daylight.
The updates to the Boudin Bakery Tour are a welcome sight to Disney California Adventure, which continues to see improvements well past the massive 2012 relaunch. On the other side of the park, Condor Flats is being completely transformed into Grizzly Peak Airfield.
