While some of these announcements had been highly anticipated, like more information on the retheming of Splash Mountain to transform it into Tiana’s Bayou Adventure and a 16-feet-tall statue of Te Fiti Coming to EPCOT as part of the all-new Moana-inspired attraction, some have taken attendees entirely by surprise.

A great example of these shocking announcements was made by Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Josh D’Amaro when talking about Disneyland Resort, and it made the whole crowd lose their minds.

Josh shared the initial concept art for a breathtaking interpretation of San Fransokyo, the futuristic city in which Big Hero 6 (2014) takes place.

This all-new breathtaking land will replace Pacific Wharf in Disney California Adventure and bring new life to the area. Josh D’Amaro commented that this project is still in its early development phases and didn’t mention an official timeline for the titanic project. However, the excitement to finally be able to meet Baymax at Disney California Adventure will surely make the wait worth it!

Disney Parks (@DisneyParks) shared the early concept art you can see below, with some details on the upcoming retheming.

Pacific Wharf in Disney California Adventure Park to Be Reimagined into San Fransokyo from “Big Hero 6”

Pacific Wharf in Disney California Adventure park, which evokes San Francisco’s waterfront, will be reimagined into San Fransokyo from “Big Hero 6,” where East meets West, and technology meets tradition. Imagineers are in the early phases of this work, but you can see glimpses of what’s to come for children of all ages – the young and young at heart. There will be a place to meet Baymax, plus new spots to eat and shop!
