We’ll get over it though, as this is just a small piece of the $1 billion in Disney Dollars going to refurbish, repair, and replace the park that never truly found its target audience. The new entrance will lead into a new Buena Vista Street, and will welcome tourists to a spot that represents Los Angeles as it was when Walt Disney first arrived on the scene back in the 1920s.
Along with the new entrance, this year will welcome a brand new Little Mermaid ride, which despite our age, we probably won’t be able to resist. Goofy is starring in his very own roller coaster adventure, and all this should be complete as part of the brand new Paradise Pier at some point this summer. Even with this all going on there’s still going to be plenty of bulldozers elsewhere, as Cars Land is on track and set to debut when 2012 rolls around.
For those that are thinking about visiting the Disneyland area anytime soon—don’t—as you’ll be better off saving your cash until the summer when both parks will be more than worth their steep entrance fees. That's when you'll find us waiting in line.
