Disneyland finally broke their silence on the Grizzly Peak Airfield makeover of Condor Flats at Disney California Adventure. The first phase of the makeover to open will be the new quick service restaurant Smokejumpers Grill. The new eatery will take over the space previously occupied by Taste Pilots Grill and will feature a new theme dedicated to forestry firefighters. When Smokejumpers Grill opens on March 20, 2015 menu items will include a bacon cheddar burger, grilled chicken sandwiches and a chili cheeseburger.
When the new Grizzly Peak Airfield opens later this spring (an exact date has not yet been announced) it will include the addition of pine trees and new paint schemes. Disney also seems to be hinting towards the long rumored digital projection and screen upgrades to Soarin’ Over California by stating, that “Soarin’ over California will also reopen with updates to its screen and projection system, bringing a visually enhanced experience”.
We also got our first look at the concept art for Grizzly Peak Airfield:
