Buena Vista Street

9_12_DCA_000052Buena Vista Street is a salute to Los Angeles as Walt Disney saw it in the 1920’s. Many of the shops and buildings are representations of architecture of the 1920’s including The Hyperion Bridge and the Red Car Trolley line.  A beautiful fountain in front of the Carthay Circle, along with a statue of Walt and Mickey (as they would appear ready to take Los Angeles by storm in the 1920’s) and beautifully detailed facades and storefronts will greet you to the newly refurbished and expanded Disney California Adventure. Directly ahead lies Cars Land, a bugs land, Paradise Pier. Heading to your immediate left will take you to Hollywoodland, and directly to your right will lead you to Condor Flats and Grizzly River Run.
