The district or “land” added three attractions and three restaurants/ food service areas and a few shops to the park. As small as it is, it may yet have been the most successful real life recreation of a Disney (or Disney/PIXAR) film, looking and feeling like the main drag of Radiator Springs - like the “actual” Radiator Springs that might have inspired the events of the Cars films.
This may have over shadowed the official completion of DCA’s five-year long redesign of that summer including the unveiling of Buena Vista Street, formerly Sunshine Plaza. The new themed land also features the Carthay Circle Restaurant, a re-creation of the Los Angeles Carthay Circle Theatre, which in 1937 showcased the premiere of Walt Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The new building may well be a proper iconic landmark in the way that castles serve other Disney parks - better than the now removed Sun icon in the plaza or the Grizzly Peak bear head.
