    The only place I ever saw that element was in concept art (paintings/drawings). The most recent incarnation(s) of the Cars Land model had no such feature, only trees in that area. At this point I'd say it was an abandoned concept. They probably figured that the rockwork is pronounced enough that they don't want it further intruding into the area near the bakery and winery.

    Yeah I believe some more recent artwork shows not the rockwork but rather a road sign fir Radiator Springs/Carsland. I think this is what the panel that sits outside BSC that overlooks Carsland shows/

    Great Pictures Ron, Buena Vista Street will look amazing at night!

    BTW, I just heard on the news that this year there is a "La Nina" weather phenomenon off the coast, which means a dry winter for the west coast. That bodes well for the Buena Vista St construction as there probably won't be many delays due to rain. I wonder if Walt is up there helping us out

    Well they said there was a La Nina condition about this time last year and remember how much rain we had. I hope the winter is mild for Buena Vista St. construction as well, but I wouldn't put too much faith in the predictions. They can't tell us what's going to happen with the weather next week...not to mention next month or next year.

    Honestly.

    Wintertime Rain > Buena Vista Street opening on time.

    I just love this time of year too much.

    If it's really Walt that's helping that, he obviously doesn't care for the rest of the country. I live down in Texas, and we're experiencing major droughts. La Nina is that last thing the South needs right now.

    Anyways, the sooner Buena Vista opens, the better. I'm planning on booking a trip down there next summer, and I want to be there when all the new stuff is open.

    I'm glad someone said it. I was going to, but I didn't want to be "that guy".

    My original post, though, said "I doubt Walt cares more about his theme park than the good of all California farmers." or something like that.

    Besides all the points above, anything a meteorologist says should be taken with a grain of salt. Unless it's "snow and cold in Fargo".

    Oh not me. The rain is a hassle. Its a pain even walking to your car in the rain and its even worse driving in it. The only time its enjoyable is when your home all day and you realistically can't do that all winter. Id rather have zero rain all year and have Buena Vista street open on time.

    I never understood why so many Californians love the cold rainy weather. Your living in the wrong state for that.

    ahaha we like it because it is different than what we usually get. We actually need as much rain as we get because our water supply systems are so poor and outdated across the state. Rain is important because it makes things pretty and green, it clears all they industrial gook out of the air, reduces fire danger, and it puts snow in the mountains for all of us who love to ski and snowboard. I find it a little obnoxious when people complain about walking in the rain. Its just water Driving in the rain is no big deal...i hate it when all these drivers slow down majorly in rain. Its not like you are dealing with black ice as they have to in the northern parts of the country. Zero rain all year would be very bad because you would be dead.

    Re: Disney California Adventure Project Tracker 12

    Because rain is essential for our water supply throughout the whole state...we're so lucky we got all the rain we got last season. Thanks to that rain (and the TONS of snow the Sierra's got) we were officially declared out of our what, 5 year+ drought. It's not just a coincidence that this has been a quiet wildfire season. Look at New Mexico, Texas, and other Southern States that are being plagued with drought and wildfires. I hope the forecasters are wrong and it's not a La Nina season, we don't need to go right back to being in low water supply. I'm excited for BVS and like anyone else would be upset if it was delayed but rain is a necessary and important part of the environment and a lot depends on it, not just nature but all of us who live here.

    ^Agreed.

    Do we know if various parts of BVS will open simultaneously? Or will certain areas (such as the CC and the fountain) be open first? In other words, are they going to control guest access for their big reveal, or let it happen naturally, and then throw a big party when the last bit is done?
