Construction Officially Begins on Pacific Wharf Reimagining to San Fransokyo at Disney California Adventure

Last year at D23 Expo 2022, it was announced Pacific Wharf, a small mini-land of restaurants at Disney California Adventure based on San Francisco, would be reimagined to San Fransokyo, from “Big Hero 6.” Now it seems construction has finally begun on this update!

The new version of the land will include a Baymax meet-and-greet, food, and more. A ride was not announced, but there’s very little space available anyhow.

As of today, the lagoon around the area will be drained to accommodate construction. Disneyland Resort officials told media outlets “Pacific Wharf in Disney California Adventure Park will be reimagined to San Fransokyo from ‘Big Hero 6’. Work has started to bring San Fransokyo to life, and we look forward to sharing more details at a later time.”

Right now, Pacific Wharf largely is known as the park’s food court, with a number of restaurants sitting in this small area.

Right now the area is largely known as a food court for Disney California Adventure. Options in the land include Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop, Lucky Fortune Cookery, Pacific Wharf Cafe, Rita’s Baja Blenders, Cocina Cucamonga Mexican Grill, and Pacific Wharf Distribution Co. Sonoma Terrace, Wine Country Trattoria, and the Magic Key Holder Terrace aren’t far off either.

As we mentioned previously, no ride is currently planned for the area. But you can experience The Happy Ride with Baymax if you’re willing to visit Tokyo Disneyland!
