Disney’s California Adventure preview center sprinkles pixie dust before construction dust

Blue Sky Cellar at Disney\'s California Adventure

A new preview center opening Oct. 20 at Disney’s California Adventure aims to tempt visitors with a sneak peek at coming attractions just as the Anaheim theme park prepares to undergo a massive $1.1-billion makeover.

Designed to look like the interior of an artist’s studio, Blue Sky Cellar will feature Walt Disney Imagineering models, sketches, concept art and videos of a nighttime water show, Little Mermaid dark ride, Cars Land themed area and overall 1920s Los Angeles retheming planned for the under-performing park.

Concept art of the Silly Symphony Swings shows the Orange Stinger ride reenvisioned with a Mickey Mouse theme based on the 1935 cartoon “The Band Concert.” The rethemed ride is expected to reopen in 2009.
