    Pro- DCA is basically a full day park now. I know because I spent 15 hours in it and wasnt bored at all. Just so much to do now.

    Con- Could still use a few more good dark rides to round it out.

    Re: DCA in 2012 Pros and Cons!

    I think one of the biggest and, might I add, irreversible cons of the park is the layout. It's clustered and doesn't have a natural flow much like Disneyland. Disneyland has the wheel-spoke pattern with paths between the spokes to ensure multiple ways of getting around traffic. DCA doesn't have that type and there tends to be a mass traffic, especially on the path straight between Buena Vista and Carsland. Speaking of which, the parade route can turn the Blue Sky Cellar into Alcatraz. I happen to get stuck there twice because I forgot to check my watch. I had to wait quite some time just to cross the road into Carsland waiting for that parade crosswalk section to come over. That problem can easily be traversed in Disneyland, because they not only provide anough room for people to watch and traffic to move freely, but they also have those, as mentioned above, alternative routes.

    On th Pro side, I love looking at the Carsland mountain range. Since I am already in love with the desert national parks, it comes as so surprise that I wished that Cadillac Range, Ornament Valley, and all those areas were actual places.

    Pro: New stuff looks great!

    Con: Loved how empty the park used to be, now have to compete with the large Carsland crowds for everything.

    Nope. If the carnival area were removed I would not shed a tear. At least get rid of the ferris wheel. It is tacky beyond belief.

    A steel coaster themed to a woodie? Come on.

    i agree with the shade problem in Cars Land BUT it is a desert and deserts are hot and shadeless believe it or not but the cons of DCA is nothing replaced MaliBOOMer and a pro is the fact that they tuurned Paradise Pier from one of the worst things Disney's ever built to a cute 1920's carnival with life in it. i definatly approve


    This is my signature, there are many like it but this one is mine, without me my signature is useless, without my signature i am useless!

    That annoying layout is what handles the crowds so well at DCA. Its layout with the main route going around the perimeter means that people rarely cross each others paths. and the place where everyone has to pass through(BVS) is very short unlike MS which becomes a long bottleneck.
    In the quest for quality, I have no problem with the characters footing the bill.
