ANAHEIM, California: Disney is done with its do-over of Disney California Adventure.

Wednesday marks the end of a five-year, $1 billion-plus overhaul to correct problems at the park.

The venue, which was supposed to turn the Disneyland Resort into a multiple-day destination like Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, had become a source of embarrassment for the company almost from the moment it opened in 2001.

Visitors grumbled that it had little connection to Disney and complained that it seemed built on the cheap.

Walt Disney Co. CEO Bob Iger has told investors the revamp will fix what was "clearly a problem" and lift business across the resort area, which includes Disneyland next door.
