Hopefully everyone will play nice and realize that Disney is doing their best to fix problems and do it as quickly as possible.
    Is there any chance that they will encourage more people to use the Grand Californian entrance; even non-resort quests?

    I have no idea. I doubt they'd want to funnel park guests through the GCH, especially as that entrance is very narrow.

    And with the north side of the pier area getting re-worked I doubt they'll re-open the Paradise Pier guest entrance either. I'm not sure how they are going to handle the logistics of a park entrance in that narrow space by Soarin, but I'm sure they've got a plan in place and have thought it out.

    Okay, I'm back. That was a good one, and that's all I'll say since I commented on the thread for that.
    Oo-de-lally!

    Re: Disney's California Adventure Project Tracker II

    I seem to recall reading shortly after DCA had opened that rather than building a standard surge tank, which is required for a raft flume like Grizzly River Run to operate, and trying to conceal it inside Grizzly Peak, that they instead were using the water from Paradise Bay for this purpose, since they had a large body of standing water in the park already. So my question is, with the bay now drained for the World of Color installation, does anyone know how this is affecting GRR or how they're getting around this problem?

    The Grizzly water goes into the part of the bay that is near Pacific Wharf and it is not really connected to the main bay of PP. So no problems.

    Hey deggert, interesting. I had never heard that nor would have thought of that as an option.

    Thanks Bob for clarifying.

    I'm really excited to see what they are thinking of for Grizzly Peak. I've heard they are hoping it will happen in Phase 2.

    I had just read that info Uncle Bob in the Imagineering Way book. But they didn't state exactly where the water was located. Thanks for clarifying that for me.

    Cool, is that a good book? I'm reading The Imagineering Workout right now and I really like it.

    Yeah, my wife got both of them for me for my birthday. I'm reading the workout right now too! The Way is every bit as good as the workout, but it is more stories and anecdotal. It's more of a "here's how we think and solve things" kind of book which is a lot of fun too. I've learned a lot of stories about the parks from them. I just couldn't figure out where around PP Lagoon the Grizzly tank was.

    cool, that explains why that section of the lagoon was always crystal clear and clean.

    Re-Imagineering says DCA will be re-named Walt Disney's California Adventure. Is this official or speculative?

    Speculative until officially announced by Disney, which it has not.

    Re: Disney's California Adventure Project Tracker II

    Until officially official, as released by the resort, it is officially a rumor.

    It may be true... but it is still only a rumor and subject to change without warning or notice. So take rumors with a grain of salt, because things have leaked out in the past and they were going to happen, but then Disney changed the plans and fans got upset, even though it had never been announced.

    If the rumor turns out true I'm glad its not a complete name change.

    Re: Disney's California Adventure Project Tracker II

    I wonder if there's something that would prohibit them from calling anything "walt disney's" unless it was actually his?

    Like... I wouldn't even call Florida's 2nd park Walt Disney's Epcot because technically, it has changed so much from his original concept.
