Come with us to explore Disney’s brand-NEW land!
San Fransokyo Square opens TODAY, August 31st, in Disney California Adventure. This spot used to be known as Pacific Wharf but is now themed to Disney’s Big Hero 6 movie, with updated restaurants, gift shops, and character meet-and-greets. Let’s check it out!
Fans of Disney’s film Big Hero 6 will be familiar with San Fransokyo — “where East meets West, and technology meets tradition.” San Fransokyo, as Disney shares, is “a fictional mash-up of two iconic cities – San Francisco and Tokyo.”
Guests can explore this transformed land, which includes refreshed dining experiences and new shopping experiences along with a Baymax meet-and-greet!
Dining locations you know and love from Pacific Wharf remain open, while new Asian-inspired eats have arrived as well. Other locations have been rethemed for San Franksokyo. All of the eateries and retail locations — both old and new — are still in keeping with the story of the reimagined land.
Today, we’re exploring it ALL.
Characters in San Fransokyo Square
San Fransokyo Square is home to a Baymax meet-and-greet!
You can meet both Baymax and Hiro Hamada at this location.
Merchandise in San Fransokyo Square
While you’re out and about in San Fransokyo, keep your eyes peeled for a Baymax Sipper cup at select restaurants.
You can find it at the following locations, and be aware that there’s a limit of two per person:
- Lucky Fortune Cookery
- Cocina Cucamonga Mexican Grill
- Aunt Cass Café
San Fransokyo Maker’s Market
Guests can visit San Fransokyo Maker’s Market, a storefront “stocked with unique apparel, homewares and more featuring Baymax and friends” located near the Hamada Bot Shop.
Up above, the local battlebot champion, Hiro’s Megabot, sits in the rafters!
Nearby, a “vending machine dispenses collectible golden medallions featuring Baymax and other iconic images from San Fransokyo.”
Dining in San Fransokyo Square
Aunt Cass Café
Aunt Cass Café is “the second bakery café operated by Hiro’s loving aunt,” and serves “dishes and soups in freshly-baked Boudin sourdough bread bowls and more inspired by Japanese cuisine.”
Of course, we’ll have to try several of the new dishes at this spot!
We’ll keep you updated once we try out the new food!
Boudin Bread Cart
Baymax Bread has arrived at the Boudin Bread Cart in San Fransokyo Square!
Disney is anticipating the item’s popularity, so there’s a current limit of 2 per person, per transaction while supplies last.
