Disney Park Getting Upgrade, But Might Need More Realism
Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Jay Rasulo today added details to announced plans to upgrade the Disneyland-adjacent California Adventure. The biggest part of the plan is to add a 12-acre theme area, Cars Land, named for the animated hit Cars.
A real California adventure: Taco trucks
With features including the Radiator Springs Racers, destined to take visitors around the grounds when Cars Land opens in 2012, it's a start. But we think the struggling Anaheim destination could use more realistic Golden State features, such as the following:
-Taco Truck Land: Choose your lunch from a variety of trucks, some featuring trendy Korean bulgogi, others manned by not-so-sanitary workers. So eat wisely -- and quickly -- because the county is ready to write a ticket to trucks that stick around for too long.
-Capital City: Where an oversize gubernatorial character talks a big game about cutting the state budget and whipping the legislature into shape but finds little success when it comes to these goals.
-City Hall Kingdom: Where an undersized mayor talks a big game about taking over the school district but has little success. He is good, however, at attracting news cameras and news reporters.
-Inland Empire: A collection of new and recently abandoned homes.
-David Geffen's Malibu Playground: A small walkway between ginormous mansions.
