Disneyland’s California Adventure Park has been undergoing some changes. Recently, Disney Parks Blog released updates on the Parks improvements. Fans are more excited than ever to see some newly released photos of what is to come.

Originally, Pacific Wharf in Disney California Adventure Park, the area has since been turned into San Fransokyo from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Academy Award-winning ‘Big Hero 6′ (2014).

“San Fransokyo Square will transport you to the not-too-distant future, in a fictional mash-up of two iconic cities – San Francisco and Tokyo. As the tech industry began to emerge and the local fishing trade fell on hard times, entrepreneurs came together to reinvent the seaside canneries into a vibrant, multicultural district of neighborhood restaurants and small businesses where you’ll be able to eat and shop.” – Disney Parks Blog

Disney’s newest update includes the eateries here with their menu items that are unique to the square. Previously, eateries included foods like soups and bread bowls, which will still exist to some capacity. Many food items will have Asian-inspired cuisine, as well as pull from the cultures of English, Japanese, and Spanish.
