There's less than a month to go until the debut of the new and greatly improved California Adventure!
The park has been re-Imagineered in stages, including the opening of the World of Color show and Silly Symphony Swings in 2010 and the Little Mermaid ride, Goofy's Sky School, and new restaurants in 2011.
This summer is the most exciting of all, with the debuts of Cars Land and Buena Vista Sreet, not to mention the Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop.
The Carthay Circle Theatre now towers above the construction walls on Buena Vista Street:
And here's a glimpse down the main drag of Cars Land, photographed from the patio of the Blue Sky Cellar:
For over three years the Blue Sky Cellar has kept guests apprised of the latest construction developments.
The final set of displays is on Cars Land:
Check out this video for an idea of how amazing Cars Land will look at night with the neon signs all lit up.
Also coming soon:
During our trip this evening we also visited the rehabbed Little Mermaid ride and approved of the fix of Ariel's hair in the "Under the Sea" scene; she no longer looks like a giant ice cream cone!

The down side to all the exciting new additions is that Disney announced massive price hikes today which take effect Sunday. I can't remember annual passes ever going up so much at once.
I'll be posting photos from Disneyland later this weekend, including photos of the new Alice Davis tribute window on Main Street.
Update: The Disneyland photos have now been posted!
