Hey, I just had the funniest thought! How about an actual California-themed ride in Disney's California Adventure?
Disney originally built DCA because they obviously felt that the state of California had enough history, scenery and resources to make a worthwhile amusement park. They must have known the park would eventually need fresh ideas and expansion to keep it exciting, right? So why are we not hearing about DCA attrations from TDA that actually have something to do with California? Didn't the Imagineers who built this park have all sorts of ideas for future rides and shows? Why are they throwing in Pixar characters and tie-ins that have nothing to do with the park's theme?
I know there may be plans to re-name and re-think the park, and as much as part of me would relish someting else like DineySea, I still think Disney comitted to building and maintaining a quality tribute to California, which is not exactly an awful idea had it been done well. Can't they think of some new exciting attractions based on the Golden State?
What about the Gold Rush, the old San Francisco era and other aspects of the state? Surely they must have had future plans mapped out...or am I over-estimating? The newest attraction to hit DCA will be Monsters, Inc. which not only has nothing to do with California but nothing to do with the Hollywood Backlot it's been placed in.
Some of you might think I'm flogging a dead horse here but I still think the California theme has potential with enough money and enough good relating ideas.
Any ideas out there on an interesting CA attraction?
