As we close in on the anticipated August 31 completion of the new San Fransokyo Square at Disney California Adventure, there are changes happening every day.
San Fransokyo Gate Bridge Adds Decoration to Supports
Pacific Wharf’s primary entrance bridge is currently closed for installation of the Torii gate towers, as it is transformed into the San Fransokyo Gate Bridge.
More “international orange” paneling was added recently to bolster the supports of the bridge.
You can see on this one support how the paneling will continue vertically up the bridge.
More Street Art Added Around San Fransokyo Square
Street art is being installed nearly daily as Pacific Wharf morphs into San Fransokyo Square.
The graffiti style art on this door has BH6 and SFS with a heart between the two. This is of course a nod to both San Fransokyo Square and “Big Hero Six,” the film on which the new area is based.
Over at Rita’s Turbine Blenders, more art and fictional advertisements have been added to the building exterior, with an ad that now reads, “Setting the standard for turbine service.”
A koi fish wind turbine was added to this building at the beginning of August. We also had an opportunity to taste some of this venue’s new slushes and margaritas.
New art for Karl Strauss Brewing Company is being painted on the back of Cocina Cucamonga.
Japanese and English advertisements for Pescadero Sardines have popped up on the walls near Lucky Fortune Cookery.

San Fransokyo Square Details
Pacific Wharf’s primary entrance bridge is currently closed for installation of the Torii gate towers, turning it into the San Fransokyo Gate Bridge.
Locations from the Cappuccino Cart to The Bakery Tour will also be decked out in street art and colorful banners celebrating the “Big Hero 6” team.
Guests will be able to interact with Hiro and Baymax outside the Hamada Bot Shop.
Near the Hamada Bot Shop will be the San Fransokyo Maker’s Market, a storefront stocked with unique apparel, homewares, and more featuring Baymax and friends. As seen in the concept art above, the market’s shelves are situated on robot storage cases, with decommissioned battle bots on display. Hiro’s Megabot will be in the rafters above.
Across from the Maker’s Market, vending machines will have golden medallions featuring Baymax and other San Fransokyo images.
Dining options will include current Pacific Wharf venues and new options inspired by Asian cuisine and “Big Hero 6.”
Pacific Wharf Café will become Aunt Cass Café, the second bakery café operated by Hiro’s aunt. It will serve soups in freshly-baked Boudin sourdough bread bowls and more inspired by Japanese cuisine. On the outside of this quick service restaurant, you’ll find a mural of Aunt Cass’ lucky pet cat, Mochi.
An old fishing net tannery across from the café is being converted to Rita’s Turbine Blenders, a giant drink dispenser offering margaritas and icy beverages. This refreshment stand is owned by and named after the repair technician who maintains the floating wind turbine, resembling a giant koi fish, that sits atop the structure.
New menu items will also be available at Cocina Cucamonga and Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop. Disney will release an official food guide for San Fransokyo Square soon.
