One year and two days ago, Disney California Adventure gained something it never had before: a heart. That's what Buena Vista Street brought to the park.
Looking back at the Street's terrific first year at the resort, we're listing our Top Ten favorite elements the new land has brought to the reborn park.
1) A HOME BASE
I've written a bit about this before, and I can't think of much else to say, except that it looks as if the two are ready to discover the park with us. The story begins...
4) THE RED CAR TROLLEY
5) CARTHAY CIRCLE RESTAURANT
6) FIVE AND DIME
7) A STREET FULL OF CHARACTER
8) STREETMOSPHERE AND THE RED CAR NEWSBOYS
9) THE CLASSY ARRIVAL OF STARBUCKS
10) THE CARTHAY CIRCLE FOUNTAIN
Happy First Birthday, Buena Vista Street! I wish I had a nickel for every guest who's walked through DCA's gate over the past year, taken one look at new entry land and blurted, "This is SO MUCH BETTER!"
It certainly is.
