Disney calls Buena Vista Street one of its seven "lands," but it's really more of an homage to Walt Disney and the California he lived and worked in during his early years, in the 1920s and '30s (the real Buena Vista Street, in Burbank, is the home of Walt Disney Studios). "Storytellers," a statue of the young Walt Disney and an early version of Mickey Mouse, stands on a street corner, waiting for a picture with you, while a nearby plaque quotes Walt Disney's description of how he arrived in Hollywood.

The street entertainers, too, hearken back to that era. The Red Trolley News Boys sing tunes from the '20s and '30s, and try to hawk their newspapers, while Five and Dime are a jazz group, hoping to hit it big in Hollywood. Other "Citizens of Buena Vista Street" from those days may appear and interact with visitors.

Street signs and shops are reminiscent of those days, while the Carthay Circle Restaurant pays tribute to the theater that premiered Disney's first feature-length film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

    Red Car Trolley [C-5]      

California Adventure trolley
by GingerJ

The vintage-looking Red Car Trolleys, reminiscent of Pacific Electric Red Cars that traversed Los Angeles for 60 years, run about every eight minutes, transporting visitors to and from four stops: the entrance near Buena Vista Street, Carthay Circle Restaurant, the Disney Animation Building, and the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. The electrical wires and connectors are just for show, as these electric vehicles run on battery power. On board, check out the retro ads for Buena Vista Street shops, and see if you can figure out the significance of the cars' numbers, 623 and 717 (hint: think dates). Children under 7 must be accompanied by a person 14 or older. Ride may be closed in inclement weather. Must transfer from wheelchair to ride. Handheld captioning available.
