The desert area looks great. And, the airfield is romantic and very unlike anything Disney has done elsewhere. That fact is a good thing. I would, however, conceal the monorail, and I would strengthen the transition to the mountainous, forested area. I also ask why Disney does not make Soarin' over California a convincing glider flight.But the area immediately around Soarin' is seen as rather ugly, and few tourists actually make the connection to a high desert airfield, and even fewer have any personal point of reference for such a place. Plus, there are many prominent Imagineers who feel the lack of a story or plotline to Soarin' means that the dusty airfield environment is rather useless. Since there is no attempt to hide the fact that Soarin' is basically a few rows of theater seats suspended above an IMAX movie screen, why deal with an ugly and charmless environment like an industrial airstrip in the desert?
Airplanes and hangars are evocative, and the desert landscaping is unique and appealing. Add some U.S.O.-style entertainment or other romantic show elements, but don't diverge from the intent of the original designers.
D.C.A. is suffering from anemia. For the most part, the place works. It just needs polish here and there. Route 66 is the big offender. That area of the park is the one that needs to be gutted as soon as possible.
An attraction related to "The Incredibles" sounds ill-conceived, and Bountiful Valley could be very impressive if Disney would do something with the place.Also proposed is the virtual elimination of the practically useless farm area, with the wharf section expanded into that area as a themed entrance to the new Incredibles ride now slated to be built in the parking lot just beyond that park section.
Here's my own Bountiful Valley: Redlands, California.... http://goldencalifornia.blogspot.com/
Bountiful Valley is essential to the overall presentation. The region is the most authentic part of D.C.A. because Disneyland resides on land once occupied by orange groves, walnut groves, and vineyards.
