    I dont know if it's me or not, I'm going to miss the CALIFORNIA sign!!!

    As my title says's I'm going to miss the sign, its the icon of the park, it's like taking out the castle in the DLR. I'm going to miss it very dearly, no longer can we go to "our" letter and stand by it and say "HA its L for LIZ!"it never got old, it really sucks. Goodbye DCA sign

    Someone told me that the whole DCA entrance was suppose to be like a gigantic postcard, with the murals.

    That's correct. it was supposed to make you feel like you were stepping into a postcard. I always found it tacky and I'm eagerly awaiting Buena Vista Street and the new Hollywood Studios - like entrance since I like it . I'm not that sad to see the giant postcard entrance go.

    I'm really going to miss the old entrance - CALIFORNIA letters, California songs playing as you enter.. but i'm also really excited about the upcoming changes. Buena Vista. St will be a great entrance for the park.

    Quoted for truth. I'll always have some sentimentality for the original entrance, but Buena Vista Street will blow it out of the water in all the ways that count. And once it's been around for 10 years, I'm sure I'll have some pretty fond memories of it, too.

    I dont have strong feelings about them, but I have no problems with it. I don't think their removal or saving - if that had been the case - will have had no effect on the popularity, or experience of the park.

    I never got a picture with them, despite my name starting with an A. (Having only been to Disneyland twice, it wasn't huge on my priorities.)

    It would be nice if they could somehow find a better place/use for the letters... possibly at the hotel remake.

    You are not alone. I will miss them too. I am extremely disappointed in myself that we did not take the time to pose next to the letter on our 2010 trip. When traveling and only visiting a few days, we run around to catch all of the big stuff. The kids wanted to pose - and I said nope, we didn't have time. Now I am kicking myself - posing for pics and memories like that is what I should be making time for. Sad.

    I always found it odd that people complained about the entrance when of the current DisneyParks DCA had the most original/creative one. I also think it's strange people are so excited for the new entrance when it's a clone from DHS followed by an California version of Main Street..both unoriginal ideas. I liked the C-A-L-I-F-O-R-N-I-A letters, sad to see them gone.
