As the wildly successful summer of 2012 quickly morphs into the next peak season dubbed HalloweenTime, both parks had a scant two weeks when things slowed down a bit before the crowds rushed back to see Disneyland’s popular Halloween offerings and hope that the Standby line for Radiator Springs Racers was less than an hour (it wasn’t).

In this update we’ll fill you in on just how successful the DCA relaunch has been this summer, what it means for the Resort over the short term, and how the One Disney corporate mantra is taking advantage of DCA’s success to remove another little bit of unique Walt-era culture left in Anaheim.

    Interesting article. Just when I thought there was no more room for expansion at Disneyland, there are plans for major expansion projects. I once told a friend that in the five years I’ve been a passholder, I can’t remember a time when there wasn’t some sort of construction project going on at The Disneyland Resort. Looks like that trend will continue.
    And shame on the big wigs in Orlando for destroying Walt’s 57 year tradition of holding Cast Member holiday parties and a successful (and worthy) Toys For Tots drive with the Marine Corp. I knew it wouldn’t take long for bad things to happen when they put “that person” in Orlando in charge operations in Anaheim too.
