Work is now underway at Disney California Adventure to transform the Golden Gate Monorail Bridge into the Historic Glendale-Hyperion Bridge. The new time specific theme for Buena Vista Street (currently under construction in the former Sunshine Plaza area of DCA) will reflect the time period of the 1920s and ’30s. The area will be like taking a step back in time to when Walk Disney arrived in California to begin his work in animation.
In early 1927, Walt and Roy Disney moved the newly renamed Walt Disney Studios into its new facility – a one-story, white stucco building at 2719 Hyperion Ave. During the next few years, another Los Angeles landmark was taking shape just a few blocks down Hyperion Ave. – the Glendale-Hyperion Bridge. The bridge is a large, complex structure – still standing today and spanning Interstate 5 from Glendale, Calif., to the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles.

The new Pan Pacific Auditorium inspired entrance opened this past weekend; notice the Golden Gate Bridge still visible in the background.
The transformation is all part of the 1 billion dollar California Adventure extreme makeover.
