See Ya Real Soon!
We’re heading to Disney again, this time to Disneyland Resort for Disney California Adventure’s Grand Reopening festivities! I will be in Disney California Adventure for the red carpet tonight, the media preview tomorrow, and the re-dedication ceremony on the public grand reopening (June 15). We’ll be sharing a TON of photos and thoughts from Cars Land and Buena Vista Street, and we’ll be checking out Glow with the Show World of Color, Mad T Party, the newly refurbished Matterhorn, and a myriad of other new offerings at Disney California Adventure and Disneyland! We’ll also be dining at Carthay Circle Restaurant on opening night, at Club 33, and at the newly reopened Carnation Cafe…so as you can see, it’s an incredibly busy long weekend for us.
I will be covering the media events for TouringPlans.com, so make sure to follow TouringPlans on Twitter and Like it on Facebook to see my live updates over the next couple days. As always, Sarah will be posting real-time photo-updates from her iPhone to our Disney Tourist Blog Facebook Fan Page. Make sure you Like us on Facebook to see all those updates!
On June 14 and 15, she will also attempt to post LIVE updates to the blog on our Disney California Adventure Grand Reopening page. We tried this for Star Wars Weekends, and it didn’t work out so well, but I think we’ve got the bugs ironed out. Make sure to check that page throughout the weekend for updates!
Sarah will also be posting some photos to Instagram. If you don’t have a smart phone, don’t worry, because those photos will appear on our Twitter account @DisTouristBlog. If you followed her Instagram account (click here to see photos) during our recent trips, you know that she’s surprisingly good with that camera phone.
Phew, that’s a lot of things to follow. Hope you can keep track of it all! We also hope you enjoy following along with us as we tour the new Disney California Adventure! Expect a lot of fun shots over the next few days!
If you don’t have Instagram or Twitter, you can see Sarah’s Instagram photos in the widget below:

Waiting . . . waiting . . . waiting . . . (eagerly and impatiently) to hear of Sarah and Tom’s first impressions of Buena Vista Street and Cars Land!
Have fun! I want your job!
So excited to see all the NEW that is opening up. Planning our first trip with the kiddos in April 2013 and watching as you experience everything is adding to the excitement of our first trip to DL/DCA.
I think you are going to be absolutely giddy over Club 33 and Carthay Circle restaurant. They are absolutely breathtaking. The food, the memorabilia, there is just so much detail! We had a fantastic time at our preview event!
Can’t wait for the updates, especially the photos! We were just there during the Memorial Day weekend and can’t wait to go back to check out Cars Land and Buena Vista Street.
Have the most amazing time ever!
I went to a Cars Land preview on Sunday and it’s amazing! We actually felt like we were in Radiator Springs 🙂 I can’t wait to see your amazing photos! Have a great time!!
From what little I’ve seen so far, the theming and imagineering of Cars Land and Buena Vista Street look like Disney at its absolute BEST! Perhaps this will once and for all lay to rest the (sometimes justified, sometimes not) griping of some of the Disney curmudgeons that California Adventure is not even as good as the parking lot it replaced. I especially look forward to your always excellent pictures. PS: I’m equally envious of your recent journey to the Disney Studio itself and very much enjoyed the pictures.
Enjoy! Can’t wait for the coverage! We will be out there in late July and your visit will only get us more amped up to go!
We are heading for WDW for the week starting Saturday, so we won’t be too depressed that you are having so much fun!!
