  1. Hair today, gone tomorrow. ;-)

  2. The Le Brea Carpets name can stay because maybe 1 out of 100,000 people would actually get that it was a pun. I love revisiting DCA 1.0, keep it coming… now that it’s long gone it makes me laugh more then those puns ever did.

    With so much to do in DCA these days I just skip that dead corner of the park.

  3. I have to mention “Award Wieners” in this group of puns. It always confuses me. Is it a hotdog stand or a movie theater? The irony is that in California there have been many iconic hot dog stands that have folded that I would love to buy a hotdog. All I can say is nostalgia ain’t what it used to be.

  4. I always liked this part of the park, but felt unfulfilled. The facade was/is nice, but there really is not much to do. With the advent of BVS and the Red Car Trolley system, it seems that potential may turn to kinetic in the near future.

    The puns never bothered me. I liked them and sort of miss them. Not so much that I would call for their return. My main concern is that Disney management will simply add more shops. As beautiful as BVS is, unless you are spending money, there is no reason to remain for long. The street entertainment all centers around Carthay Fountain and is great. Officer Blue and Phiphi the photographer wander about and interact in a fun and surprising way. Donna and her dog Lady roam about giving kids a moment of puppy fun. Molly the messenger girl is amusing, especially with her puppy love crush on Calvin. And they are all flanked by a myriad of stores making up and DCA mall.

    Enough shops! I like them. I stop there for souvenirs. Let’s get Disney creative with the rest of Hollywood Land!
