Disney California Adventure

 


 

Hollywood Land

Hollywood Land is a tribute to Hollywood past and present. Classic Southern California architecture sets the tone and transports you to Hollywood’s Golden Age, but everything old is new again when a generous touch of Disney magic is applied. Entertainment is the focus with a spectacular stage show, an insider’s look at the animation process, and a touch of Marvel.

Your visit starts with a walk through The Collector's gallery, where you'll find treasures from across the galaxy. Keep a sharp eye out for famliar items.

 

 

After receiving clearance, guests will visit The Collector's private office, then head through the warehouse to a gantry lift where they'll get a look at The Collector's prized possessions...the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Sorcerer’s Workshop : For hands-on fun, this is the place to go. As you enter, you can try your hand at creating your own animation. Next you’ll enter the Beast’s Library. Prominently displayed on a shelf is the glass-encased Enchanted Rose. As the petals fall, wait and watch the sequence of events that follow. In the library, you can take a personality test, conducted by Lumiere and Cogsworth, to see which character you resemble. You may discover that there’s a bit of a Disney villain lurking within.

Character Close-Up: Meet Anna, Elsa and their friends from the movie Frozen.

Turtle Talk with Crush: This interactive show with everybody’s favorite turtle from Finding Nemo, who appears on the screen to look at all “the humans in the human tank”.  Through some amazing technology, Crush is able to interact with the children in the audience.


Sunset Showcase Theater (opened February 2001, new name April 2016)

The Sunset Showcase Theater is the former home of MuppetVision 3D and was the temporary home of For the First Time in Forever-A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration.

In April of 2019, Mickey's PhilharMagic, the 3D movie musical that features Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and other favorite Disney characters, made its debut.

"As Donald prepares the orchestra for Mickey, he comes across the conductor’s baton and Mickey’s Sorcerer’s Hat. A little magic goes a long way and proceedings go awry! Donald is unexpectedly plunged into a 3D dream world and you’re taken along for the ride. The experience will sweep you away into the fantastic world of classic Disney animated musical sequences — from Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid to Peter Pan and Aladdin."
