In less than a week, a completed San Fransokyo Square will be welcoming guests who visit Disney California Adventure into a new area inspired by Big Hero 6. The area is definitely more San Fransokyo Square now than Pacific Wharf, its previous iteration. This transformation, announced at the 2022 D23 Expo, sees the world and characters of Big Hero 6 get a permament at the Disneyland Resort. It will include a new meet and greet location, merchandise, and also food options. Disney has announced that the new area will be completed and officially welcoming guests on August 31, 2023.
As the completion date gets closer and closer, Daps Magic team member Angela stopped by San Fransokyo Square on its last weekend of construction to see how the progress is coming along. Things are very close to completion, but not quite finished yet. Take a look at where things stand about a week before this new area opens at Disney California Adventure!

Tradition You Can Taste
A symbol of San Francisco since 1852, Ghirardelli chocolate is known the world over for its exceptional flavor and quality. The Ghirardelli Chocolate Company uses a time-honored manufacturing process starting with the highest-quality cocoa beans and ending with extensive conching to ensure a silky-smooth texture.
Italian immigrant Domingo Ghirardelli started the company after finding success during the California Gold Rush. Its landmark Ghirardelli Square location at Fisherman’s Wharf has been beckoning chocolate lovers with its trademark illuminated sign since the early 1900s.
At Disney California Adventure Park, the legend lives on at the Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop, where real melted Ghirardelli chocolate is used to make its signature hot fudge each and every day. Come taste the reason the Ghirardelli Chocolate Company has thrived for over 160 years, and take home some of its distinctive chocolate squares for yourself or someone special.
