Disneyland Resort lovers have been anxiously awaiting the opening of the new Cars Land and Buena Vista Street in California Adventure. Both sections were created as part of a massive refurbishment for California Adventure that is just about at completion.

In fact, the opening day for the public is currently scheduled for June 15, 2012 at which time the general public will be allowed to experience all of the new attractions and experiences of Cars Land and Buena Vista Street. However, annual pass holders are being offered a special preview of the area on select days.

Annual pass holders may purchase one of three special ticket options allowing them to preview the new area on either June 9 or June 10, 2012. These three options include a general Cars Land and Buena Vista Street Preview for $50, a Cars Land and Buena Vista Street Preview Followed by a Private World of Color Show for $75 or a Dinner at Carthay Circle Restaurant, Cars Land and Buena Vista Street Preview Followed by World of Color Show for $500. All ticket options are per person.

Those thinking of visiting Disneyland during the summer may want to watch the All Things Mouse Disney Park Hours page for park hours. Of note, Disneyland and California Adventure hours are typically only known a month to a month and a half in advance.

The complete posting of information for the Disneyland website is offered below:
