Disney gives guests a peak of plans for California park

Disney’s California Adventure has opened the Walt Disney Imagineering Blue Sky Cellar to give guests an exclusive preview of what is in store for the expansion of the Disneyland Resort.

As part of its $1-billion makeover, the park is to be transported back to the California of the 1920s, when Walt Disney first arrived in Hollywood. The centrepiece of the new entrance will be a re-creation of the Carthay Circle Theater where Disney premiered the movie Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in 1937. The World of Color nighttime display of water effects will debut at Paradise Pier, and a 12-acre Cars Land will be added to the theme park.

At the Blue Sky Cellar, which is nestled in the Golden Vine Winery at the base of California Adventure’s Grizzly Peak, guests can view working models as well as dozens of concepts and sketches from Disney Imagineers.
