Located between Avengers Campus and Paradise Pier, Pacific Wharf is themed to represent the waterfront areas of Monterey and San Francisco. Currently this area has the Boudin Bakery tour where guests can watch San Francisco’s famous Boudin sourdough bread made fresh daily. Guests can sample the bread that is used for the resort’s bread bowls and purchase loaves of bread. 

Also included in this area are the Walt Disney Imagineering Blue Sky Cellar and the Ghiradelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop. In September Disney announced that this area will be reimagined to represent San Fransokyo from the popular movie Big Hero 6!

The new area will be themed to represent all of the great elements we know and love of San Fransokyo from the series. It will include a Baymax character meet and greet and other themed experiences.

This retheme is a great decision as it bridges the inclusion of intellectual property mixed with scenery and setting that fits the California Adventure park. It ties the “superhero” elements of Avengers Campus with California in a great way!

Since September, Disney has not shared a timeline for the start of this new expansion. “Pacific Wharf in Disney California Adventure Park will be reimaged to San Fransokyo from ‘Big Hero 6.’ Work has started to bring San Fransokyo to life, and we look forward to sharing more details at a later time.”

Currently, Disney is draining the lagoon for the start of this new expansion. Although there is no timeline, it is exciting to see the beginning signs of work on this project.
