Disney California Adventure opened in 2001 and has been expanding ever since. Enjoy a morning visit before our Guests arrive and see how the Horticulture and Resort Enhancement teams prepare the park each day. During the tour, you will see unique plant specimens and learn how we care for them in such a challenging environment. Along the way, you’ll learn how we decorate the park overnight and what it takes to design the Disney way. Horticulture and Resort Enhancement team members will describe the jobs they do and talk about how they manage work on the ‘third shift’ (2:00–10:30 a.m.). Our Cast Members will talk about the collaborative nature of project development at the Resort, and detail the impact of ever increasing numbers of visitors on the day-to-day work of the department. This walking tour will begin bright and early on Buena Vista Street, which is set in 1920s Los Angeles and then continues through Cars Land and other areas of the Park, with insight into seasonal floral displays, theming, props, animated windows, and more! Bring your walking shoes, dress comfortably, and please leave large bags behind. Please leave your cameras at the hotel as no photography is allowed.
