A Bugs Land

You guys, I’m just sad about this. Today, A Bugs Land in California Adventure closes down for good to make way for a new, Marvel-themed area. Don’t get me wrong, I am really excited to see what this ‘Marvel Land’ (thats not what it will be named) will look like and entail, but I’m pretty devastated that it comes with such a high cost. A Bugs Land is adorable. The theming in that area is some of Disney’s best, if you ask me. Its such a great place to take kids as well. With this gone, I feel like options for little kids in California Adventure are so much smaller. Its a bummer.

A Bugs Land opened in California Adventure on October 7th, 2002 and consists of several child friendly rides which are, Heimlich’s Chew Chew Train, Fliks Flyers, Francis’ Ladybug Boogie and Tuck’n’Rolls Drive ‘Em Buggies. There is also Princess Dot’s Puddle Park (a splash pad, essentially) and the best a 3D show called, Its Tough to be a Bug.

I’m going to miss A Bugs Land. I really am. I have some awesome memories there. H’s very first ride in a Disney Park was in A Bugs Land (Heimlich’s Chew Chew Train). We would always laugh when we rode Ladybug Boogie because it seemed to spin just a little too fast and would whip us around. I’ve never felt fully prepared for the part in Its Tough to be a Bug when the bugs leave the theater under your seat or when you get stung in the back (if you’ve been you know what I’m talking about). We have a really funny story with Wild Man’s family on the Drive ‘Em Buggies. The shade there is unbeatable. I know I’ve already said this, but the theming is spectacular. The popsicle stick benches, the huge 3 (and 4)  leaf clovers  up above you and the fact that when you enter Bugs Land you really do feel as if you’ve shrunken down to the size of a little bug. I can’t say enough just how cool it felt to be there. It was certainly overlooked by many people who entered California Adventure, but it wasn’t by me or my family. We love it and we’ll miss it.

bye. A Bugs Land! Thanks for the memories.
