Buena Vista Street and Cars Land

Posted on
Buena Vista Street, the new entrance to Disney California Adventure, is the main focus of Laura Gilbreath's latest report from the grand reopening festivities at that park. As most Disney fans know, Main Street USA was inspired by Walt Disney's boyhood home of Marceline, Missouri. Buena Vista Street is inspired by Los Angeles in the 1920s and 1930s, where Walt Disney came as a young man full of dreams and ambition. Laura has lots of photos and video, as well as details from the World of Color, enhanced with special Glow with the Show mouse ears.
