    Re: What does Paul Pressler think of DCA now?

    And they had no intention of adding on for years.

    Unlike Disney/MGM studios ... where they immediately added more in it's first three years.

    Who Wants to be a Millionaire - Play it, Flicks Fun Faire, Tower of Terror .. ALL raced on to the construction time-table ... as they thought they were going to have such a hit on their hands ... that they would not have to spend a dime on new attractions for the first 3-5 years.

    Ehh, still pretty bad though. Kind of an eye sore as well, as far as the entry gate (everything looks like it's made out of tin), color scheme, overall appeal, etc. The parking lot was much more convenient in it's former spot.

    I don't think so. I just saw him yesterday selling oranges just off the freeway. I would have bought one, but they were rotten and gross. Plus we was charging way too much. $3 for just one!!!
