September 14, 2001 – The Attraction Who Wants to Be a Millionaire – Play It Opens in Disney’s California Adventure
“Where in the world can YOU get into the hot seat?”
On September 14, 2001, the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire – Play It interactive attraction opened in Disney’s California Adventure (DCA) park. Based on the hit ABC game show hosted by Regis Philbin, contestants would play at certain intervals, competing for points that could be redeemed for prizes, including the grand prize of a Disney Cruise Line vacation for four. The DCA attraction was similar to the Walt Disney World, which opened on April 7, 2001. A Fastpass was available for the attraction throughout its run, until it closed on August 20, 2004.
