    Re: Disney California Adventure Project Tracker 12

    My great-grandma was a teenager when Snow White premiered, and my grandma's first toys were Snow White-themed. While she can't remember what they were specifically, Snow White has always been her favorite, and to this day she wears a Snow White watch and has a classic Snow White bedspread. As a result, all us grandkids love Disney too, but I've always been the obsessed one, and in school when we were asked what we wanted to be when we grew up, I said I wanted "to move to Anaheim and be a Disneyland person."

    I live in WA, so I don't get to visit as often as I'd like, but I have been to the park 4 times so far ('91, '00, '07 and '09). As a kid I got to watch Disney Channel in the days of Pooh Corner, Avonlea and the Keri Russell-included Mickey Mouse Club. My favorite cartoons were the Disney Afternoon TV block, and my first time in '91 was with my grandma during the Disney Afternoon Avenue event. (There are no words to describe my love of Adventures of the Gummi Bears, even now.) I got to ride in the Lilly Belle car on the Disneyland Railroad in '07 and my name got called out during a parade in '09 (it was my birthday and I had my pin on). Disneyland has always brought me something beyond joy, an indescribable emotion that I only feel when I'm there, with an intensity as strong now as it was when I was a kid. It really is my Happiest Place on Earth.

    I can't find any true words to describe the range of emotions on how I feel about everything with California Adventure, and I'm only looking at pictures and video. It finally feels like something as uniquely special as Disneyland. I've been putting off my next trip since '09 for years in order to see the finished product, and I've never been more excited to go again.

    As a side note: my grandma, while still alive, won't likely be able to visit Disneyland again, so I've been keeping her updated using Mint's updates and this thread. When I showed her the Snow White mural ceiling on the Carthay interior photo, she got so excited. She loves the way everything looks now and can't believe it's the same park she's visited before. I'm really grateful to everyone's contributions with photos, videos, and information, since they've been my way to let her experience everything again, even if from a distance, and share it with her.
    Disneyland will always be the best, because Walt walked there.

    ^ There will be an update but it will be posted later tonight. He said he was out of town due to work and so he had to go to the park during the evening instead.

    EDITOR’S NOTE 6/7: The Pixar team was furious to learn this winter that the phrase "Cadillac Range" was off limits for Cars Land references due to legal issues between Disney and GM. Lasseter put the screws to the Burbank lawyers, and after some wrangling over the new Test Track sponsorship out in FL, GM has just approved use of the Cadillac Range phrase in Cars Land references. CM previews of Cars Land continue this week, and the general feedback mirrors the WDI/Burbank feedback we offered you in the last update. - Al Lutz


    Yay Lasseter to the rescue!

    If you buy a Tire Hat and a CM spots you wearing it, they give you a fastpass into Luigi's. At least today that is what they did.

    Re: Disney California Adventure Project Tracker 12 (This is not my review)

    I honestly cannot believe this expansion is coming in about a week. A few years ago I remember seeing the Sun Wheel and PP bay up in walls for WoC. Heck, I haven't been at the resort since June 3rd when ST and TLM premiered and I'm more excited.

That said, the crazy thing is, BVS and CL feel like they’ve existed in DCA all along.
    I love your last statement, this is what the park should have felt like when it opened. So glad to hear that the past has been "erased" and BVS feels like it was always in DCA.

    It's been tough skipping the previews, reviews but I can already tell DCA will finally be the park it should have been from day 1. I love that guests will be able to walk into one of the best theme areas of the land...BVS (from what I've read and from the recent pictures) as their first impression. I can only imagine the reactions of guests who haven't been to DCA pre-WoC.

    JUST watched Time Travel Mater on the Disney channel! Very cute! Yeah, they definitely tied it to RSR showing Mater in the stagalites(?) area first (which he mentioned he never seen before...nice touch) and of course showing how Stanley formed the town and the different businesses he had that we will see in the queue like the caps and bottle house. Wont spoil the ENTIRE 4 mins lol, but yeah cool little cartoon!

    I swear Lasseter really is becoming the Walt Disney of this generation and building up story all over the place. I cant wait to see the toon run in BSC! Great tie in!

    Mint has some amazing pictures of the buildings in BVS lit up. The stain-glass windows in Clarabell's are really nice looking.

    I think after DCA relaunches Mint should give himself a few weeks break where he can enjoy the parks without carrying a camera around ha

    This is true, although with a drink in one hand, and a cone of pretzel bites in the other, it's hard to dip into your nacho cheese cup.

    On the above video, I heard they had to film for 8 hours straight to get the shot of the tire going fast, haha!

    Where did you get that information? Or, are you just making a joke?
