Originally, DCA based its overarching theme on California -- the state and the state of mind. That is still true, but the adventure at the post-expansion park focuses as much on "Disney" as "California." The company's characters, especially its Pixar stars, are featured as well as Walt Disney, the man who started it all. The story is established, and the tone is set just beyond the front gate as guests enter Buena Vista Street. It is designed, with loving attention to detail, to evoke circa-1920s Los Angeles, the era when an eager Walt Disney arrived with his prescient hopes and dreams. Perhaps the most popular spot at DCA is Cars Land, based on the popular Pixar film. The featured attraction is the thrilling dark ride, Radiator Springs Racers.
