    The Hyperion re-do should have never been cut from Phase 1. It remains one of the biggest (maybe THE biggest) visual blunders of DCA 1.0. I really wish they would invest the money to re-do the outside and inside of this facility - even if its all they do to HPB for now. A new show installation could be part of the renovation. Possibly have the theater close in Spring 2012 after CarsLand opens. Then it could reopen in the Spring of 2013 as the big new "attraction" for that summer with some cool blockbuster new show debuting inside. Just my idea of how to market the renovation and take advantage of the re-investment.

    As for the parade route, I say just don't do a parade for a year or 2 while all the construction is happening. Seems the easiest solution.

    I hadn't really thought about it, but I guess these types of removals have to be done at all one time. We wouldn't want to see a Dino body with no head.

    Here's a pic, courtesy of DL2006. I guess the back half is under a tarp, but the head and most of the body is gone.

    Nothing like a Dino removal to brighten our day and bring us all together.

    I guess I never really understood the hate for the Dino.

    While I agree that the whole Route 66 theme never really seemed fully fleshed out, I totally understood the "road side attraction" idea. There used to be dinosaurs on highway 17 in Scotts Valley on the way into Santa Cruz. Just passing them on the highway was always one of the the things my sisters and I looked forward to as kids.

    Indeed, they started earlier than I had been told about. The original post has been updated.
