    One thing I noticed when they were remodeling the sub lagoon for FNSV was that they built this huge faux-rock concrete mound in the middle of it. Not only does it provide decorative rockwork for the ride, it also helps to decrease the number of gallons to keep the lagoon filled.

    It seems that Disney is more water-concious these days than in years past. Unfortunately this means fewer and fewer trees.
    Yeah that must be it, they can afford Carsland but not trees or the water bill.

    I enjoy my time DCA, but I would never say its more magical than Disneyland, if it has any magic at all. (World of Color will be the first time we can use "magical" in the same sentence with DCA IMO). Unfortunately, you may find yourself in the minority here.

    I haven't seen enough in the billion dollar expansion to address the lack of trees, honestly. Cars Land will be themed to a large desert, so I expect them to continue with DCA's cohesive concrete theme.

    Golden State is the one area that will be well shaded I guess, but I still think they could use more trees. Forests are dense, not sparse.

    Another design feature that really angers me when it comes to DCA's scarcity of trees involves Tower of Terror. Had they have developed an elevated queue like the one at DHS (MGM Studios), they would have had an opportunity to add trees and improve the visual aspect of the ride tenfold.

    Well, I feel that Toontown shouldn't have many trees besides the few that are there because the trees would have to be fake, "cartoony", in order to fit in with the land.

    DCA is growing into a park that will have shade. I think the problem here is the fact that we're all impatient and that other parks have had more TLC than DCA.

    The Huntington Library in San Marino, California lies in the same climate zone as Anaheim (or slightly hotter) yet is able to keep 120 acres of gardens watered, an area larger than Disneyland. And they only charge $20 to get in.

    Doesn't help that they expanded the rest of the parking lot to be a desert theme haha.

    While I agree with many that adding more trees to DCA will probably hurt the theming, I do think that they should take a page from Walt's book and line the border of the park with tall trees so that guests don't get a view of the outside world.

    A green belt, you mean? Good idea. Evergreen trees, please.
