    California Adventure Construction Pictures

    It would be cool if they could level it all and start again. There is just so much room and potential there.

    Overview taken on 8/20/99. Amazing that they can take this and turn it into a theme park. Not a good park mind you but a park non the less.



    Look how small Grizzly peak was. 10/03/99

    Enjoy!

    I'm addicted to Disneyland. Disneyland hobbies are expensive.

    With all this talk of "off the shelf" and "on the back-burner" it seems the only thing that DCA is really missing is the kitchen sink!

    Re: California Adventure Construction Pictures

    Well, those were really interesting!

    I dont really think its "wasted" space, but it is getting better, and growing all the time as Al is showing in his article. We need to realize that DCA is growing and they are trying to better the park.

    So lets love DCA...

    Yes, but she and her younger sister Walt Disney Studios take pride in disgracing the Disney name. Such trouble makers...

    As for the pictures, they are great. They could have really taken advantage of that land.

    Wow, it has been awhile. Didn't Disneyland invent the E-Ticket and add 3 major rides (subs, monorail, and matterhorn) just 4 years after it opened? DCA is dragging it's feet!
