Also known as "The Pond", the Honda Center is the home of 2007 Stanley Cup finalists, the Anaheim Ducks. We got the goods on this southern Cali arena!

Honda Center - Disney Beginnings

Arrowhead Pond Arena (AKA The Pond) opened its doors in the fall of 1993. The new venue was to become home to the NHL's newest franchise in Anaheim, California. Inspired by the Disney movie, the expansion hockey team was named The Mighty Ducks. In 2006, Arrowhead Pond was renamed the Honda Center and their hockey team was renamed the Anaheim Ducks. The Pond is located just a mile from Angels Stadium, the home of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. While Disneyland is just five miles from the Honda Center.
