Interesting article about Disney California Adventure from the LA Times

Disney officials estimate that the water-and-light show attracts 4,000 to 7,000 visitors per show, most of whom crowd into a roped-off area on the banks of the Paradise Bay Lagoon. To get into the reserved viewing area, guests either arrive early to get a free “fastpass” ticket or buy a meal package, priced between $15 and $40, that includes entry to the reserved zone.

The expansion plan will continue next summer with the opening of the Little Mermaid — Ariel’s Undersea Adventure, an indoor ride based on the classic 1989 Disney movie “The Little Mermaid.” As part of the makeover, Disney also plans to remodel the park entrance by the end of 2012 to resemble Los Angeles of the 1920s, including new shops, restaurants and Red Car trolleys along Buena Vista Street.

But the biggest investment will be Cars Land, a 12-acre addition that pays tribute to the 2006 Pixar movie “Cars.” Cars Land is scheduled to open in 2012.

Despite initial positive reviews and large crowds for World of Color, Disney officials say it’s too early to declare the latest investment into the expansion — an estimated $75 million to build the new attraction — a success.
