Disney's California Adventure original artwork



California Adventure , thanks to the one billion dollars huge placemaking will change a lot in the next years, and everybody seems to be happy with the new concept unveiled recently. No doubt that the park will be totally different , with an even more detailed theming, great e-ticket attractions, etc...

So, before the first version of DCA disappear forever, let's have a look back to the original art of the first version. Most of the images below are new scans in high-res, so as usual click on each image to see them in bigger size.
