everything looks great.
everything looks great.
Couple of questions - on the overall proposed map -
What’s with Sorcerer Mickey near the hub? Does that suggest a Mickey attraction, like Ariel and Goofy do over in Paradise Pier?
Any info on which new Walt/Mickey Statue that they have choosen?
Over by the old Hollywood and Dine, WHAT is that green character? What kind of a vehicle is it in? Is that suppose to represent a new attraction of some sort?
What’s the deal with leaving all those itty bitty rides (Jellies and Zephyr) right in the way of viewing for the water show? I thought they were going to clear up this area to make a much larger viewing area comparred to what they had for Luminaria. Doesn't look like there will really be much more viewing space.
What’s the reason for adding ROCKS next to the long take off stretch? Not sure that enhances anything. Are they going to get the wave machine working again and try to create a bigger splash - really, it doesn't look like it adds anything aesthetically pleasing to the pier. Looks like a waste of money, that should be used to make the queue look more old fashioned.
UGGGH! the pier makeover is just a mess! I still HATE it, the coaster is still a coaster, the ferris wheel is still a ferris wheel, still have the lame Jumpin Jellies, and they aren't being moved closer to the Little Mermaid area. Why don't they Move King Triton's Carousel to the Little Mermaid area, also???
Just adding "Mickey's Fun" Wheel, to the name of the ferris wheel doens't make it acceptable. And Changing the Orange Stinger to Mickey's Twister doesn't make it right either. Why can’t that Tornado wind its way up and down the pier, so they can Get Rid of that Eisner/Pressler mistake! Obviously the bulldozer isn't being used to it's full and needed capacity. Will it take an act of god to remove the piss poor pier theme?
One other comment on the buildings in the entry area - in the conceptual drawings, they look more like southwest stucco style? Is that right???????? OR Do we get to see more Hollywood buildings in this area - I’m really hoping for the Hollywood art decco buildings - as those are much more fascinating. Ugggh, they will have plenty of SW style in Carsland! I see plenty of stucco here in Phoenix, it sure isn't near as special as Hollywood. Make the entry Hollywood! Not some generic building that could be found in nm or az.
I'm dreading that this billion dollars just ain't gonna dress up DCA to any level near what Disneyland has.
yes...a coaster, swings, and ferris wheel are such thematically terrible rides on a beachside boardwalk...
I'm nervous. I love things like the Sun Wheel so much because they hold so many memories. I don't want to lose those feelings for the park with all these changes. I mean, fine add victorian architecture but I love the idea of having the sun stand for the park. Maybe the Hubcap fountain can go but keep the sun style there.
I love Sunshine and Paradise so much. =(
Interestingly enough, I noticed that tha Monorail will pass thru the revamped park rather than siimply traveling parallel with the front of it, on the outside. The California Zepher has two levels in the sketch, as opposed to it's current single level.
Something else that came as a surprise to me is that the Cars Race Rally track mainly takes place on the ground. I figured that it would be elevated as with it's predecessor, Test Track. It will be a heady rush racing though an elaborate scenic desert, devil-make-care. Not a cop in site either. LOLOL!
One more thing - I doubt that the park's name will remain lame as California Adventure. They only showed the name on the new entry gate because Disney doesn't want to reveal the new moniker yet. I'll bet Ed knows. Anyone want to try to drag it out of him?
B. The rocks add so much more. I think the concept is like the trains go into a dark cave and come out on the other side like the edge of a seashore. Sort of like how the Giant Dipper in Santa Cruz goes, the dark tunnel part of course.
C. If you look, Hyperion is fully enclosed, and I believe the rest of hollywood will be as well.
D. The green figure I believe is kermit the frog representing Muppet Vision 3D.
Please leave the Paradise Pier Loop In Place! Cannot make it clear enough how sad I will be if it is removed.
Other Music Loops that should stay- The Bay Area Loop/Please find somewhere like Carsland where you can move the Sunshine Loop.
Secondly, Please put something in the place of Redwood Creek. CBJ or something! Please!
Oh, yeah the bldg next to mickey looks a little like the cellar.
Monsters Inc. Really? That would be the red roof building. Looks like an alligator with a net, to me.
Really, not an easy map of DCA to read.
I'm pretty jilted about the re-theme, mainly because I am not comfortable with change. I'm looking forward to many parts of these changes but I'm less than thrilled about the entrance gates and plaza the most. Why do they have to copy DHS?? Can't any part of this park be original in the least bit?
I'm pretty bummed that the Golden Gate Bridge will be no more.
