    It's not a matter of ownership. It's a matter of taste. Pixar films are among the most beloved in modern cinema... but it doesn't mean I want to see everything in a theme park be an animated-based ride.

    Certainly. Furthermore...when was the last time Pixar made a movie that celebrated the cultures, landscapes, legends, and/or history of California?

    Slightly off topic, seems like we should have a one-off logo competition to see who can design the best logo for DCA, haha. Just an idea...

    Imagine, as the new symbol for the resort, Sleeping Beauty Castle overlapping Mickey's Fun Wheel, sort of like the Tokyo Disneyland Resort now:



    However, if they can popularize the Carthay theater as the icon for DCA, I will be immensely satisfied.
    I agree on this one. What draws peoples eyes? Look at this google link:

    I must say that i tend to agree with this idea. I think that overall disney will make the central icon the main one. I mean Grizzly always seemed to work for me. I happen to like the bear shaped mountain, and while I think it would be nice to encorporate something else into it (ie paths or a show) It works for me. The whole park works for me. I really like the direction that they are taking it. I cannot wait to see everything completed. But I must say that Carthay seems the most logical answer. I mean it will have a movie where SBC only had a walk through. so....

    The Carthay Circle, without an attraction, and smaller than Sleeping Beauty's Castle, just won't cut it as a proper icon.

    And the very idea of a ferris wheel as the icon for any Disney Park is enough of disrespect to Disney, for him to cause a great shaking of the earth, causing a canyon chasm between DL and DCA, and cause the DCA side to drop off into the ocean to really force DCA to become Anaheim's Disney Sea!

    With the platinum sun setting in the future, and a new younger Walt and Mickey statue rising, and with trying to make DCA look like something Walt would approve of, this new statue with Grizzly Peak in the background is more likely to become the icon look of the old new DCA. Although Grizzly Peak still needs enhancements, and is not the center of DCA, and is not the attraction people want to ride after dark or in the cooler months, it still has provided most aesthetically pleasing views in all of DCA, since opening day. Slap the new Walt and Mickey Statue in front of it, and Ta-dah! Presto! Va-La! the new DCA icon.

    That made me feel guilty. But I must say, it was really Disney's fault for building the thing in the first place, and for making Paradise Pier one of DCA's few memorable vistas.

    Ok I see your point. The wheel is a bit undisney even though it has the mouse on it. If the bear stays then they should market it better. What one mostly sees is the wheel and coaster on the net.

    This was actually a marketing decision. The initial goal of DCA was to appeal to a teen/young adult thrill seeking demographic. So they hyped Screamin, and due to proximity/visibility the Fun Wheel. Even after the switch was made to make DCA more "kid friendly" they continued to focus on Screamin. The reason is that Screamin is the largest unique attraction in DCA. GRR, while nice, is a mountain and Disneyland has several mountains. Disneyland doesn't have anything even close to Screamin so it became "the icon" by default.
