    I'm addicted to Disneyland. Disneyland hobbies are expensive.
    If I become a bum people are going to say "Don't give him money, he's just gonna use it on Disneyland."
    Disneyland. My Anti-drug.

    With all this talk of "off the shelf" and "on the back-burner" it seems the only thing that DCA is really missing is the kitchen sink!

    The planters are vaguely reminiscent of Watts Towers, and I think most of this space is really interesting.

    The problem area of this park is Paradise Pier, so Disney should focus its efforts there, especially, on Route 66.
    I think both areas are quite bad. The metal sun (aka the hubcap) and PP both deserve to be flattened and replaced with something nicer and more disneyized.

    It's cute but only minimally more enticing than what they've got now.

    However, if a ski skyway gondola (with room for 15-20 passengers each) went from the Matterhorn / Motor boat cruise area to the DCA entrance plaza it would be fun!

    Like I pointed out its just an idea with utilizing the current elements they have in place, the one thing the visualization does not take into effect is that I would also replant the solar diodes that are in the planters where the sun is currently and replant them in the entrance area, so that it can continue to reflect sunlight on to the giant sun.

    I think the giant trees should be strategically placed in a way that allows them to block the show buildings in the background on both sides. The trees create a lush inviting entrance instead of a bleak mosaic and a fraction of the Golden Gate bridge which should be moved to the Wharf.

    Insert impossing waves from the edges that add color and atmosphere and small palms and lush tropical plants.

    Maybe add an area with redish desert elements and cactus(how so you say plural cactus? Cacti? Cactuses?) anyway a few thorny desert plants but far from the prying hands of kiddies...Just my thoughts.

    A ski lift? Gawdy much?

    The need to give it two fake clouds like my visualisation and put a face on it, so it has a "Mickey" look, he he kiddinng...

    ...and the "CALIFORNIA" letters.
    Maybe move them into the park or something, then represent them in the purple hills like the Hollywood sign...or just put the Hollywood sign in the hills. Or not.

    The Sun icon will come down next Fall if the ideas being thrown around continue.

    A new entrance Icon is being imagineered.

    the hollywood sign is a trademark.

    Does DCA really need another huge mickey face in the park? NO
    Does it need to be all cartoony or filled with Disney characters in its entrance? Sorry NO

    Disneyland already has the floral mickey thats enough

    As long as they don't use cardboard cut-outs of mountains and trees for your idea for the entrance than i'm all for it.

    good stuff

    see also brand recognition, something seemingly lacking at the moment. I don't necessarily need a Mickey face or anything but based on the popularity I gaged of the Mickey and Goofy figures attached to the California letters, I am guessing, a photo spot with your favorite fab five Disney classic characters would be a great draw to tourism. So does DCA need it? Maybe not. Could it use it? Perhaps.

    Think of the the huge three dimensional trees like those you see in Six Flags, CA
