#207 Disney California Adventure

"This unique place embraces the richness and diversity of California... Its land, its people, its stories and, above all, the dreamers it continues to inspire." (Robert A. Iger, Re-Dedication, June 15, 2012)

Disney California Adventure opened as a separate theme park from Disneyland in 2001. Hollywood Land celebrates California's pioneering role in the entertainment industry with the highlight Tower of Terror. Cars Land relives the glory days of the Mother Road, Route 66 and its desert surroundings. Pacific Wharf and Paradise Pier pays homage to the coastal history of piers. Grizzly Peak re-creates the redwoods and mountain peaks of the Sierra Nevada. Buena Vista street reveals the glory days of Hollywood and Los Angeles when the Red Car Trolley line dominated the scenes and the pace of life was slower and happier.

World of Color is a nighttime water and light show and the most beautiful experience that Disney has ever created. It features movie projections and music from its vast repertoire and makes the park worth a visit in itself.
