Disney's California Adventure evolves in its first decade

Posted Monday, February 7, 2011 11:55 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Ten years ago this Tuesday, Disney California Adventure opened with a sunny ceremony with fireworks, Mickey Mouse, top company officials and glitzy performances. Then the rain started and lasted for weeks, dampening attendance at Disneyland’s sister theme park that received tepid reviews.

Man, I can't believe how much time I've spent anticipating things having to do with this park. I anticipated the original opening for 2 years. Then bugs land, tower of terror, etc. And now the huge upgrade. No rest for the wicked eh?

Depends... is the anticipation rooted in the park not being good enough to start with? A lot of Disney nerds seem to feel that way.

It still one of my favorite parks, out of seven Walt Disney Parks I have visited it is my third favorite.

No. I actually didn't mind it because I was a AP holder when it opened. I would have been PO'd if I had paid full price for the place. But after my pass expired, I was anticipating new development because the pricing just didn't merit a visit. But the value is finally catching up.
