I would love to see it if I'm ever in CA again, but I don't like crowds.

Our local news team has been broadcasting all day yesterday from there. Judy saw it and has decided she wants to go for her 42 birthday next month... How cool is that?!

This is so cool! I have a reason to go to Disneyland after all these years. Some of the details you pointed out are very interesting, I like the firing order at Flo's, same as a Y-Block.

My wife,and I go to Disneyland every year for her birthday (dec. 5th). I haven't anticipated something this cool at Disneyland EVER!!! As a child Disneyland was all about the rides,and the thrill. Now that I am older I look forward to the architecture, those Imagineers are amazing!!!! I was a sub-contractor in a house built here in Seattle a couple years ago. The big wig that owned the home hired some of Disneylands Imagineers to design his home (mansion).The detail was simply breathtaking!!!!

Then you REALLY won't like Disneyland or being anywhere in the area. Was at the convention center next to Disney a while back and everything was packed. Even Dennys!!

cool, looks like they got the right person for the job. I think between the cars land and buenavista street and the entrance redo that California Adventure is finally headed in the right direction. Can't wait to go check it out, big Disney fan.

Next year is our 5th anniversary and we are planning on going to Disneyland. It is where we went for our honeymoon. Cars Land sealed the deal that we are going.

I watched Cars with my kids the other day and was wondering if the spark plugs at Flo's were firing in any particular order! Thanks for the tidbit. BTW I'd never seen it on Blu-ray before; what an awesome looking movie, especially the opening sequence and the scene where all of the neon lights get turned on in Radiator Springs. My wife has been buggin' me to take the kids to Disney World. I may re-direct the trip to DisneyLAND now.
