A Bug's Land - A concise Tour

ONE | TWO | THREE | FOUR

Written by Adrienne Vincent-Phoenix. Photos of this tour by Adrienne Vincent-Phoenix and Sue Kruse. Contributions from Al Lutz.


Sue Kruse and I attended a cast member preview of the new Flik's Fun Fair area of Disney's California Adventure park on Monday, September 16. Since the land is not yet open to the public and neither of us are parents of young children, we are reserving final judgment on the area and attractions for now. In the meantime, please enjoy these photos of Flik's Fun Fair, and changes to the surrounding area.

Our first stop, of course, was shopping. The former Santa Rosa Seed and Supply store has been remodeled and renamed the P.T. Flea Market. The shop sells all manner of bug-themed toys, clothing, plush and trinkets (below).

You enter Flik's Fun Fair through a giant box of Cowboy Crunchies (below). Sharp-eyed visitors may remember this as the cereal Woody endorsed during his heyday in Toy Story 2.

Below: A lot of detail work went into the design on the inside of this cereal box. A close inspection reveals that this box holds the lucky winning ticket for a "fabulous trip" to the new land.

Below: Guests entering the area are immediately dwarfed by towering clovers, which help provide shade, as well as make guests feel one inch tall.

The vegetation in the area is already very lush, making the land slightly humid. Speakers hidden in the bushes fill the area with bug sounds.
