October 20, 2008 – The Blue Sky Cellar Preview Center Opens in Disney California Adventure
“Step into the minds of Walt Disney Imagineers to see how “blue-sky” ideas turn into reality—from concept to completion.”
On October 20, 2008, the preview center Blue Sky Cellar officially opened in Disney California Adventure. Replacing the Seasons of the Vine Theater, the area served as a place where Imagineers could show sketches and models depicting proposed and upcoming attractions; attractions presented there have included Mickey’s Fun Wheel, Silly Symphony Swings, World of Color, Ariel’s Undersea Adventure, Goofy’s Sky School, Cars Land, Buena Vista Street, Fantasy Faire, Mickey & the Magical Map, Market House, and Pixar Pier. Although it originally closed on September 29, 2013, it was reopened on April 13, 2018, as it was used to showcase the plans for what would become Pixar Pier.
