    There's also some nice stuff on all these Twitters and some more about the preview today. The food for Cars Land looks and sounds great. Fun snack food at the Cozy Cone and great, classic comfort/diner food at Flo's. Here's all about the food Cuisine of Cars Land: Disneyland dishes handheld eats at Cozy Cone Motel and comfort food at 300-seat Flo’s V8 Cafe diner | Inside the Magic
    WOW!!

    You know what those reactions sound like to me? The first time I went to TDS and saw Mediterranian Harbor for the first time! I was BLOWN away! I have not been that blown away ANYWHERE else at any Disney park on the planet. There's not a single thing at DL that comes close to that moment. None!

    But it sounds like CL may be that moment now! If people are saying Disney has slacked on this land, so far not one review has confirmed it. Just the opposite in fact! I cant wait!

    Finally got a mini walk-thru of Buena Vista Street this week... so many little details to absorb and appreciate. My favorite was the W.D. + L.B. carved into one of the trees.

    Wow that is special! To think that they took the time to put in a detail so personal and symbolic of love is very touching.

    I'm in CL on almost a daily basis and I still get the "Whoa" feeling everytime I walk in there especially at night.
    I'm pretty sure i've been telling all of you this for months, glad there are others that back up my own feelings about the place.
    But please continue with the complaining of places and rides you have not been on yet, I apologize for the positive interruption.

But when we compare every single attraction in DCA to attractions at Disneyland, we are setting DCA up for failure. Yes, Disneyland is amazing and let's face it: it's nearly impossible to replicate something so perfect. To compare DCA to Disneyland is unfair.

    DCA is far from perfect. We know this. Is it getting better? I think so. Will everyone agree with me? I doubt it. But to judge attractions before they're even open and saying things like "I'm not even going to bother checking out Luigi or Mater" or "RSR looks slow, it's going to suck" is presumptuous and short-sighted. Come on, let's stay positive and hope for the absolute best when DCA 2.0 has it's grand reopening next month.
    The people that have constant negative things to say are only a small fraction of the people that visit the park. It is, however, a large fraction of the people here

    Wow, great Mint update. Final sidewalks going in, last details being adding, ready to spray wash the construction dirt off, almost ready, I'm ready!!

    Asked this before, don't think I got an answer. What are the metal (and now a (fake) wood) poles on the right side of this picture for. They are along the sidewalk in front of Flo's. And I think in other pictures, you can see some on the left side of the street. I know the camera compresses everything, but they seem to stand out with an as yet unknown purpose.

    They are mostly for street signs containing like speed limits, yield, stop, and etc..
