Welcome to Cars Land via Babble.com
When you think you’ve made all the memories you can at one of Disney’s theme parks – be it in Anaheim, Orlando or Tokyo- you’d be wrong. Very wrong. Walt Disney once famously stated, “Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world.” The brains at Disney are named imagineers for a reason, and they have the budget and brawn to “imagineer” perfectly.
Their newest task was to create and build the recently opened Cars Land in California Adventure and the new “downtown” aka Buena Vista Street. The imagineers along with their builders, chefs, show directors, gardeners and a cast of – yes – thousands, created brand new places to make memories in.
Check out these 14 ways you can make brand new memories at California Adventure! The fun never ceases to stop, seriously:
Eat at the Carthay Theater
The Carthay Theater once was a premiere movie house in Hollywood back in the day and just happens to play a big role in Disney lore. Walt’s very first animated feature Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
– the movie that launched an empire – opened at the original Carthay Theater back in 1937. There are two restaurants at this iconic movie house and a bar inspired by the 1930's. The downstairs features small bites for those just wanting a quickie. Upstairs is a dining Mecca headed up by the Executive Chef Andrew Sutto – the chef who oversees the Michelin rated Napa Rose at the Grand Californian. Here, in glamorous surroundings you can dig into highfalutin options like Colorado rack of lamb or grilled Jamaican jerked kingfish. Bonus points for the old school bar serving up not just Manhattans and Side Cars but a variety of local small production brews.
My memory: Sitting in the lounge area with a group of great people enjoying an amazing chicken wrap that was fresh and delicious, not at all like the corn dogs I usually chow down on at Disneyland.
