"To all who enter this Golden State: Welcome! Here you can visit the many different places of California in just a few footsteps. To the early days of Los Angeles, the wonders of movie making in Hollywood, the romantic boardwalks and piers, and lush national forests. California Adventure is dedicated to the natives, entrepreneurs, immigrants, and brave aviators who came with visions of success. California Adventure will continue to grow and become a place of wonder just as California has done for and will do for many, many years to come."
That was the dedication speech given to Miniature Disney California Adventure on July 16, 2011. As of right now, the park is expanding! Disney California Adventure, however, will be a magical and interactive place when the expansion/makeover is complete next year in 2013.
