I think I broke a personal record having spent the last four days at the Disneyland Resort. Three of those days at Disney California Adventure. Long enough to already have my mind spinning about "what's next?".
On Thursday while DCA was closed to the public, they gave special guests and media a private party on Buena Vista Street and Mad T Party. Dean Morra, one of the greats of the swing world performed along with his orchestra and hired performers and guests were invited to swing along to the music. It made me wonder... why didn't they have the Carnation Gardens type stage set up here in the planning? Wouldn't swing dancing make more sense in early Los Angeles? Seems like it would be a better fit than some medieval stage that becomes a part of Fantasyland!
Second thing I thought about... you have a pretty solid view of the Fireworks from Carthay Circle and some of Buena Vista Street. Does anyone else think they should maybe pump the fireworks music there and allow guests to enjoy it from DCA as well? I think it would be a nice inclusive way to make the night more magical to as many guests as possible.
On Saturday night, a lot of folks were filling up Buena Vista Street following the 9pm World of Color to enjoy the fireworks anyway. I'd probably still refrain from playing the music in the esplanade.
Anyways... thoughts? Agree? Disagree? Swing Dancing? Fireworks?
