Pressler is a controversial figure among Disneyland fans, as his presidency focused more on merchandise than attractions and maintenance and also for the initial low quality of his Disney's California Adventure park, which opened in 2001. In 2007, Disney began a massive overhaul and expansion of the park to drastically improve its quality at a cost of $1.1 billion, more than the park itself had originally cost to build.
