According to the OC Register, the removal of the 11 1/2 ft. California letters in DCAs entryway is official. The anxiously anticipated demolishing will take place beginning January 4th, 2011. A brand new entryway will be completed in 2012.
Some here on the board are assuming that Disney is spending big bucks for a new entryryway that will feature the same old lackluster "Disney's California Adventure" name. Think about it my friends...Disney is spending a billion (possibly more) to completely overhaul a low performing gate. The poorly conceived DCA moniker has remained as much of a problem, since it's inception, as the park itself. Why would Burbank go out of it's way to prop up Eisner and Pressler's crummy name for their even crummier park they built on the cheap..
Here on the board, I remember one heated debate after another as to whether one attraction after another fit the California theme. When Walt came to California, he first set off to open a studio...not a theme park. The way things are shaping up, a studios based park name would be perfect for the revamped park. Plus, the second gate at Disneyland Paris is studios based, as is the newly renamed WDW studios park. I believe that we may be looking at something on the order of Disney-Pixar Studios or Walt Disney Studios-Anaheim or Disney Buena Vista Studios.
Even if DCA does not become a studios park, I feel that the stinker of a name is bound to change. Feel free to offer ypur opinion on the subsect, and any new name possibility that you might come up with or like.
