    I should also add that I did not attend Dancin’ with Disney, but it looks fine for it’s targeted audience. I did have a freakin’ blast at the Mad T Party though, and NO, it is not “tacky”.

    Please note Dancin With Disney does not include the apostrophe ‘ on the sign …how tacky ;)

    I went to DCA on June 15th on re-opening day. The Buena Vista Street is a step in the right direction. However, DCA needs a lot more work. Disney needs to put in some rides that are long on imagination. The problem lies in the fact that DCA does not have the acreage in comparison to DIsneyland. There is much more at Disneyland to see and do. So a decline in attendance might be headed DCA’s way in about a year or so. Personally, I do not see paying the same amount of money to get into DCA as I do to see Disneyland which offers so much more for the money.

    1. Fix Bugs Land and get rid of the cheap carnival rides like the bumper cars and twirling ladybugs.
    2. Keep the winery which adds to the landscape and decor of the Buena Vista Street.
    3. The jungle gym in the wilderness needs to be re-worked with something else.
    4. The area where Soaring Over California is located needs to be re-done. Too much concrete. I think the airplane is good, but too much hard scape in that area.

    I know it is easy to critical, but the impression I get with DCA is that they ran out of gas in terms of ideas. However, acreage is a problem. It is smaller park. Maybe it needs a smaller price to bring the people in. Maybe a $30.00 admission rather than the $87.00.
