First Stop.... California Adventure
Did you know? - Disney California Adventure is a theme park in Anaheim, California, adjacent to Disneyland Park and part of the larger Disneyland Resort. It opened on February 8, 2001 as Disney's California Adventure Park. The park is owned and operated by The Walt Disney Company. On May 28, 2010, it was announced through the official Disney Parks Blog that Disney's California Adventure Park would be renamed to "Disney California Adventure."
This 55-acre (220,000 m2) theme park was constructed as part of a major expansion that transformed the Disneyland area and its hotels into the Disneyland Resort and consists of five areas: Sunshine Plaza, Hollywood Pictures Backlot, The Golden State, A Bug's Land and Paradise Pier. Each area is meant to resemble various aspects of California, its culture, landmarks and history.
In 2009, the park attracted approximately 6.05 million guests, making it the 11th-most visited theme park in the world, its highest ever attendance total for a calendar year.
We went soaring over California
Hollywood Pictures Backlot is an area styled to appear as Hollywood boulevards and movie backlots, with Hollywood, Television, and movie-themed attractions. A version of the Tower of Terror attraction from Disney's Hollywood Studios opened in the Hollywood Pictures Backlot in 2004.
Did you know? - BACKSTORY: Oct. 31, 1939, lightning destroyed part of the Hollywood Tower Hotel and transported elevator passengers to the Twilight Zone. The building’s scorched façade is modeled after The Mission Inn (Riverside), The Chateau Marmont (Hollywood), and The Biltmore (Downtown LA). Cast members wear a 1930’s bellhop outfit that costs $1000+ per uniform (most expensive park costume). This attraction cost between $70-90m, and at 183' is the tallest attraction & building in Anaheim. Imagineers screened all 156 Twilight Zone episodes at least twice to capture the mood and inspire props, guest stars, settings, music, and representative phrases used by host Rod Serling. His intro (viewed on the Library’s TV) is from the episode “It’s a Good Life.” Serling began with “Tonight’s story on The Twilight Zone is somewhat unique and calls for a different kind of introduction. This, as you may recognize, is a…” Imagineers completed the intro with new dialogue, using a sound-alike (Mark Silverman). For Halloween 2006, the Tower of Terror received minor enhancements, including Halloween decor for the lobby & building exterior, and various cast members in period costume (a reporter, a janitor and a pair of 1930’s L.A. citizens).
Then Over To Disneyland
Did you know? - Disneyland Park is an American amusement park located in Anaheim, California, owned and operated by the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts division of The Walt Disney Company. Originally called simply Disneyland, it was dedicated with a televised press preview on July 17, 1955, and opened to the general public on July 18, 1955. Disneyland holds the distinction of being the only theme park to be designed and built under the direct supervision of Walt Disney himself. In 1998, the theme park was re-branded "Disneyland Park" to distinguish it from the larger Disneyland Resort complex.
