Endless Adventures

Imagine a day filled with one amazing adventure after another. Come let Disney take you on an all-day journey that immerses you in exhilarating Disney stories with fantastic attractions and breathtaking shows and spectaculars. Disney California Adventure® Park, where you’ll step into the adventures that inspired everything Disney!

Disney California Adventure® Park has been expanded and re-imagined in exciting new ways. Your whole family will be fully immersed in your favorite Disney and Pixar stories like never before.

You’ll feel the transformation from the first time you step foot on Buena Vista Street—the main street of Disney California Adventure® Park. It’s a neighborhood like no other, where you’ll experience the vibrant energy of Los Angeles that Walt Disney first discovered when he came west in the 1920s. Grab a tasty treat at Clarabelle’s Hand-Scooped Ice Cream. Take a ride on the vintage Red Car Trolley or stop by the Carthay Circle Theatre, which lovingly re–creates the theater where Walt first premiered Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs almost 75 years ago.

Get ready to be floored! Cars Land is now open at Disney California Adventure® Park. You’ll feel like you’re walking into the Disney•Pixar Cars movie, because the town of Radiator Springs has now been brought to life in this entirely new land.

Cars Land is big, it’s the kind of place your whole family will want to stop by, stay awhile and get cozy with your favorite Cars friends from the cutest little town in Carburetor County. You can even meet Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater!

Get your dancing tires on as Mater sings and you hitch a ride on your own twisting, twirling little tractor. Sit back and enjoy the ride as the tractors dance and their trailers swing along on Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree.

And once the sun goes down, the excitement’s just beginning at Disney California Adventure® Park. Every night in Cars Land, Radiator Springs will come to life in a beautiful sea of neon—just like in the movie Cars. Then over at Paradise Pier, World of Color, a nighttime water spectacular weaves water, color, fire and light into a kaleidoscope of fantasy and imagination that you won’t want to miss.

Of course, all of your favorite attractions are still here. Feel the rush on California Screamin’ and fly high on Soarin’ Over California.

So join us, because it’s going to be a big year at Disney California Adventure® Park. It’s immersive Disney and Pixar storytelling the whole family can enjoy day and night!
