    Temporary entrance to disney california adventure continue until spring break 2012?

    I really dislike seeing they change the entrance to the park because it turns down my planification of how to visit the park and to take my first photo of it, i'm going to visit the park the last week of march in 2012, do you think they will finish the entrance by that time or they will make us enter through another place?

    DCA is now into the home stretch of that four year construction project, and the park couldn’t look uglier out at the main entrance area. It’s going to get even uglier over the winter, until the new buildings and aesthetics of Buena Vista Street finally begin to emerge by next spring.

    i't sad for someone to see the park for his first time spending a lot of money in that state, i really hope they make an effort and make the park NICE and comfortable for spring.

    I'm not holing my breath on anything. There has been no official word that I know of. Winters in So Cal can be pleasant and warm or oddly cold and wet with a strong El Nino effect. Even CM's and signage has been changed to "Summer 2012" and can be changed again.

    Right now nothing is known except for the immediate future, so I'm just taking things as they come with a grain of salt. Hope for the best but expect the worst kinda thing. There are still so many uncertain factors that can come into play.

    I'd be pretty surprised if you didn't have to still enter from the temporary entrance. Probably a lot of the major work will be done, and things won't be looking as ugly as this winter. But I don't think they'll bring the walls down until around June.

    I agree. Even if they do finish miraculously early, I don't think the area will open up to guests until summer anyways. At least June I would bet. They are going to have a big event to celebrate the end of the DCA construction projects.

    I just came back from the resort and I can say that the temp entrance into DCA was not too bad at all and great when you think about the situation that is going on. It's been painted, themed signs, cart vendors, lighting, benches. And at the end of the night, you can be dumped right into Downtown Disney closer to the tram pick up. They are definitely making the best of a less than ideal situation.

    Sorry I wouldnt expect any changes until June the earliest! Until BVS opens, and that looks to be sometime in the summer at the earliest, they will keep it the same.

    That said, I really like the tempoaray entrance! Its really pretty cool when you see it in person. But I dont miss Sunshine Plaza at all lol. It was just too tacky for me, but hence why they are changing it of course.

    But yeah, I imagine if you are going in March, there wont be any changes, sorry! But, who knows?

    Have you visited DCA lately? The entrance isn't as disruptive as some make it out to be. It's a noticeable inconvenience, but it's not going to ruin anyone's day by any means.

    Perhaps they should halt construction of Buena Vista Street for you until Spring, and rebuilt Sunshine Plaza for your visit. Then once you leave they can just start up on BVS again.

    ^^LOL!!

    Well, what I would say to the OP if it bothers you that much, just push back your trip until AFTER BVS is done!

    We're talking just a few months later and if you cant come in June or July, but if you think you can come sometime that year, thats what I would do! And in return, you are getting not only a completed park, but a better experience anyway.

    So IF it bothers you that much, just go later! But honestly, its been said, the tempoaray entrance is actually pretty cool! No its not something you want to sit for another year, but for what it is, its fine! And for me, Sunshine Plaza was not any place I spent anytime in and just walked through it to get to the next land anyway, so its the same purpose for me. I think thats for MANY people! Hopefully BVS will get people to stop and look around a bit. But for me, the temp entrance is not a big difference since I never cared or appreciated the original entrance.

    I've always thought they should completely shut down DCA to avoid disappointing people's aesthetic sensibilities.

    I'm not local to SoCal, and our family usually plans our trips in the summer when the kids are out of school, so I will probably miss out entirely on the experience of the temporary entrance since we probably won't be back until July. If you experience the temporary entrance, consider yourself lucky.

    I suspect the general public won't get a huge chance to check out BVS until the park is ready for its grand re-opening sometime in the summer.

    I think it was Al who indicated there was a plan in place to shut the park down completely for one full day so they could give the entire park a good once over and then do a grand re-opening ceremony the next day to treat it like a brand new park (which, let's face it, it pretty much will be once most of this Phase 1 update is complete.)
