    New Poll: Paradise Pier or Carsland After Dark?

    Based on what we have seen, if you had evening time at California Adventure and could only go to Carsland or Paradise Pier, which would you pick?

    I'd pick Carsland hands down.

    This is tough...Paradise Pier has all those popcorn lights, the kinetic movement and energy from the rides, and of course the nighttime spectacular World of Color. Carsland promises to come alive in neon glory at night which is so Route 66 Americana, popcorn lights as well at Luigi's and Lizzie's, and RSR is being said to be a totally different experience at night (like BTMRR is). I had to choose Carsland. It seems like it is going to have a nice balance of laid back and vibrancy at night.

    I had to go with Carsland as well. While Paradise Pier is going to have some cool new things happening, it's going to LOOK very similar at night overall I think.

    Carsland however, is a whole new unknown land to experience and explore. We are getting a fabulous opportunity to walk slowly through a brand new land, right here at our own DLR, to soak in all the little things, and savor the atmosphere.

    I'm definitely excited by the transformation of DCA as a whole though, and can't wait to walk through a park that finally (hopefully) deserves to stand next door to the one and only Disneyland.

    I prefer the World Showcase which is why I chose other.

    While I expect Carsland to be very nice at night, not so much for the neon but for something else. RSR will be nice to experience during night and day, giving it two flavors, much like the Matterhorn, Autopia or BTMRR.

    Paradise Pier is excellent at night, the lit tracks of CS, flashing MFW and spining attractions at the west end of the pier. Plus the glowing fountains in the middle. It is so dynamic and lively with its lights.

    Picking Carsland means no WoC? Hadn't thought of that. Definitely going with Paradise Pier.

    I'd go Carsland for the near future, but Paradise Pier over the long haul. if I had to guess, I'd think that those empty attraction pads won't sit empty for too long...especially since they didn't bother re-working the end by Maliboomer.

    I can't pick Carsland as none of us has seen what it will look like, sorry. That makes no sense.

    I think there's been enough art and completion of the actual construction to get a feel for the area.

    They both look pretty neat. Unfortunately WOC wrecks any opportunity there is to truly experience PP at night.

    We're kind of on uneven playing ground right now because we've been living with Paradise Pier for 10 years and haven't stepped foot into Cars Land yet.

    If I haven't seen EITHER... well... fully immersed cars land with only three attractions or a Paradise Pier land with a great coaster, two dark rides, and three-four smaller rides?

    If I haven't seen either of them, I might go with paradise pier.

    Re: New Poll: Paradise Pier or Carsland After Dark?

    Tomorrowland and the Pier have always been my favorite places to visit at night so for now I have to stick with the Pier. But based on the movie and the construction I've seen, I may change my mind once the land opens.
