    Re: DCA Expansion Phase 2

    Phase two will almost certainly happen and I think the ideas are a little more refined than people think. This is all really one project which is going to happen in two phases, it's all part of the big vision that I think is being driven by Bob Weiss. Management is already backing phase two in concept. They came to WDI and said, how do we fix this place and through discussions, design work and negociations they came up with a plan to spend 1.2 billion in two phases. If DCA's numbers and the economy are ok then phase two should happen.

    In order to complete the new theming in order to fully realize the new vision for the park, phase two will need to be completed. These are big fundamental changes that will change the layout of the lands and the theming of the park in huge ways. Once complete, Golden State will be completely gone. It will be carved up and rethemed into new lands. Part of GS (farm) goes to CL of course, CF and GRA combined into a single new land, and eventually something will be done in the wharf too. All this needs to happen in order to fully realize the new concepts for the park, which I think are quite brilliant and will make DCA a good park. To me the thought process behind what WDI is trying to do is quite clear and it's also quite clear that phase two needs to happen or the park will remain in an unhealthy state that will not provide the profits that it potentially could.

    Cool Re: DCA Expansion Phase 2

    To me, Phase 2 is basically filling in the gaps that were left out of Phase 1. Oh, and new rides that'll be cool.

    it was haha

    Phase 1 isn't even close to being finished yet, so how would they cancel a project that hasn't even been started yet until 2013?

    Re: DCA Expansion Phase 2

    Woah! Trackless dark ride, log flume, mine train, robocoaster... Slow Down!


    Where could people possibly be hearing all of this. I understand the log flume partly because it is in very early concepts for Paradise Pier, but robocoaster?? I think we should just see what happens and stop spreading rumors before we get some crazy ideas floating around the web.



    ... Except for the loop that's being added to ToT. That should be completed by Phase 2.

    I don't think anybody ever said that Phase 2 was canceled. My point was that I won't get my hopes up for a Phase 2, considering Disney's track record with second phases and finishing multi-part projects.

    Well it seems to me that Bob Iger has a very different style from Eisner so we shouldn't judge Disney by its track record of the past. Iger seems to be more reserved in his manner and seems to make decisions after they are well thought out and then carry them out. I don't think he's nearly as likely to boast about projects and then not follow through in the way Eisner often did.

    I think he thinks improving DCA is one of the most important things for the domestic parks and will continue to move forward with this project as long as the numbers continue to suggest that DCA and more importantly DLR as a whole could be making more income. I think he also is very focussed on strengthening the Disney brand and knows that the image of DCA needs to be fixed for the benefit of the brand. I simply think phase two is planned and will happen unless something goes really wrong like the country slipping into a full fledged depression or the opening of basically every phase one attraction going completely ignored by the public.
