It's time to say happy birthday to Disney California Adventure.

The Anaheim theme park turned 10 Tuesday.

It opened with a splash in 2001, but it didn't get the enthusiastic reception that its neighbor Disneyland gets.

Since then, it has had a makeover with new attractions to woo visitors.

Disney says the "World of Color" water and light show helped bump up the number of park guests 20 percent in 2010.

Still, records show attendance hasn't reached the park's goal of 7 million guests a year.

Disney is the parent company of ABC7.
