Disney's California Adventure (popularly known as DCA), located adjacent to Disneyland and Downtown Disney California in Anaheim, was officially opened on February 8, 2001. The 55-acre theme park was part of a major expansion that changed the Disneyland area into a major resort.
The park is as diverse as the state it represents. The different areas of the park: Sunshine Plaza, Hollywood Pictures Backlot, The Golden State, A Bug's Life and Paradise Pier, represent different aspects of Californi including its culture, landmarks and history. Although there are some similiar attractions at DCA (i.e. Soarin' Over California, Tower of Terror, etc...) most of the attractions are unlike any found at other Disney parks. Even the similiar attractions are variations of their sister attractions.
We have visited DCA several times and it's a joy to visit everytime. This park is still young and is growing and changing often. We hope you enjoy the pictures and videos we've acquired on our visits.
Park Dedication (Michael Eisner - February 8, 2001)
To all who believe in the power of dreams...welcome. Here we pay tribute to the dreamers of the past. The native people, explorers, immigrants, aviators, entrepreneurs and entertainers who built the Golden State. And we salute a new generation of dreamers who are creating the wonders of tomorrow. From the silver screen to the computer screen. From the fertile farmlands to the far reaches of space. Disney's California Adventure celebrates the richness and the diversity of California...its land, its people, its spirit and, above all, the dreams that it continues to inspire.
