My coverage of Disney California Adventure's grand reopening continues with a photo tour and musings about Buena Vista Street and Carthay Circle, the vastly improved front section of the park. In its original form, the front of the park was a hodgepodge of iconography that served little purpose other than as a means of egress to the attractions in the back of the park. Now, it is a richly themed, inviting, evocative place that helps set the tone and tell a cohesive story. See my take on Buena Vista Street and Carthay Circle.
