It’s time to take another look back in the archives of the Disney Parks Blog – this time, let’s see what we were up to in October 2010. We hosted one of our biggest meet-ups ever, welcomed Duffy the Disney Bear to the parks, revealed one of the stars of the upcoming reimagined Star Tours: The Adventures Continue, and more!

Topping Out Ceremony

‘Topping Out’ – An Expansion Milestone at Disney California Adventure Park
It’s hard to believe that just two years ago this month, we were just getting started down the road to Cars Land. On October 29, 2010, we celebrated the “topping out” ceremony for the new mountain range’s tallest peak.


  • I still have that elecTRONica coin and the meetup ticket in a frame hanging in the office with all my other “Flynn Lives” memorabilia.. It was a great party!

  • October 2010, I was one month away from getting married. We went to Walt Disney World for our honeymoon. That’s the first time I remember going to Disney World. I go again in a few weeks for our honeymoon. Can’t wait!!!

  • The image of “Beauty and the Beast” with co-stars Robby Benson and Paige O’Hara reminds me of an observation I once had. I call it “The Disney Lean”. I find it funny how people tend to lean into character pictures. Watch for it. It happens even without puffy princess dresses!
