Photos: The First Evening in San Fransokyo Square at Disney California Adventure

San Fransokyo Square Opening Night

On August 31, 2023 Disney California Adventure officially welcomed San Fransokyo as the newest area to be found in this park at the Disneyland Resort. The area now is themed to Big Hero 6 and even has Hiro Hamada and Baymax meeting guests throughout the day. The new area of the park has places to eat, places to shop, and a new meet and greet area with the duo from Big Hero 6. While San Fransokyo Square looks great during the day. It looks absolutely magical at night! This also was the night after the Supermoon and the moon was quite splendid.

Daps Magic team member Doug Marsh stopped by San Fransokyo Square on August 31, 2023 to check out what this new area looks like at night. Below are photos that Doug took while exploring.

Here is a listing of all that that there is to check out in San Fransokyo Square:


  • Hamada Bot Shop – Guests have the opportunity to interact with Hiro and Baymax outside a converted warehouse, where the Big Hero 6 team builds their hi-tech gear. 
  • The Bakery Tour – A behind-the-scenes tour of a real bakery gives a look – and taste – of how the world-famous Boudin sourdough bread is made.
