    Re: California Adventure Construction Pictures

    I remember driving into the parking lot and seeing the Paradise Pier structures. I thought for a moment that there was a large carnival going in. Mind you, this was waaay before I became a Disney enthusiast and I had no idea what was going in. I also remember seeing the Golden Gate bridge and wondering what they were doing. It didn't even strike me that they were building a new park.

    Now I know why those tunnels on Screamin' have looked really drabby lately...they have been on there since 1999!

    I remember staying at the DL Hotel and looking out the window at the construction of DCA , and thinking what the heck was that big orange and hating it upon site. I actually like most of DCA never have warmed up to the big orange and Paradise Pier though.

    Yeah, I remember looking at California Screamin' and wondering about the new park, because at that time I didn't know anything about DCA, or a lot about DL.

    Re: California Adventure Construction Pictures

    Am I crazy or has the kid's exploration(rope bridges, slides, etc.) area by Grizzly River a newer opened attraction to the park? But in one of the construction photos, you can clearly see the area being built. Was this open only for hotel guests only until recently, or have i just always missed it for the last few years???

    WHY did they leave a parking lot un developed behind HPB? They could have used that area up for more attractions (yeah right, shows).

    Great photos!
    It's interesting to see that even though it was not something in a major building (like Space Mtn in HKDL) Screamin was started (and looks done) so much earlier in the game. Which is funnny, because besides the wooden themed boards below it, it's not too different from those coasters Six Flags can put up in months.

    Its always fun to see parks go up.

    Re: California Adventure Construction Pictures

    Yeah, we have quite a few pics during the construction phase (none quite as cool as the ones here though). We had the opportunity to take plenty since at that time we stayed at the PP Hotel and we always had a construction area view.

    Funny thing...

    After DCA was complete, and we first went to stay at PP, they tried to charge us MORE for a "view" of the Park room. I quickly stated that we had spent the prior two years staying in the same rooms during the construction and put up with the noise and such and now that it is open and a (preferred) nice view, they are going to charge us more???

    The CM agreed, and went to a supervisor to get permission to get the lower (original) rate that we were paying during our construction stays.

    Yeah...stick us there with the lower "teaser" rate during construction, until it turns into something, then stick it TO us to stay in the same room (now just with a "view").

    Now we stay in the Sierra Tower and don't worry about it...
