    Leave Timon alone?

    Hey here is a question:
    Because the majority of us feel that more, much more can be done for DCA; should they consider using the Timon Parking lot for expansion?

    It really is not that large of a parking lot. and it is in a curious location. It could almost be another "land" within DCA.

    YES, Please use the lot.

    Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
    Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
    Marge: Pink.
    Homer: D'oh!

    I think if you read through most of the post regarding "how to fix DCA" you will find nearly EVERYONE advocates using this lot. There is a search function, take some time and search DCA and see the fun stuff people have preposed- peace out hommie g's

    imagineering is planning to use the lot for expansion that's why it's there

    and it's not as small as you think, it could very easily hold three lands the size of the hollywood backlot area

    I was under the impression way back when what is there was still being built, that it was already planned to use that parking lot eventually.

    That has ALWAYS been the plan.

    I think it needs to be used, but first you need to address other sections in the park, including the entire Paradise Pier/Route 66/Bathroom row (aka San Fran) area, plus the dead space at Pacific Wharf (Lucky's and lack of an attraction) and the North east corner where Hollywood and Dine is...

    Make the current park better, then expand!

    I Agree, Fix The Current Situation And Then Expand. It Has Been Said That Timone Would Eventullly Be Used, But For What I'm Not Sure.

    AMEN! I am firmly behind fixing up and filling the current park before physically expanding - and there is SO much room in DCA as it is, for new attractions. There are MAJOR vacancies in the following areas:

    The Entire Pacific Wharf
    Bountiful Valley Farm
    Bathroom Row
    Hollywood and Dine
    The X Games Show Building
    Millionaire

    Not to mention needing to update existing attractions. Off the top of my head these come to mind:

    Paradise Pier
    Route 66
    Redwood Creek


    My 2 cents =)

    there's nothing behind the Pacific Warf except the Timon lot unless you want to gut what's already there and totaly rebuild

    the Xgames didn't have a show building they had an arena that was built on the Timon lot but has since been reclaimed... by the Timon Lot

    Bathroom Row is increadibly shallow there isn't room for showbuildings or anything of depth behind the san fran buildings

    bountiful vally farm... http://www.micechat.com/showthread.php?t=1041 (I think we've discussed this before )

    Millionare will get something from the entertainment department eventualy I'm told (it's currently run by Entertainment at least)

    and Hollywood And Dine is expansion space I suppose though I've heard it's kitchen is used for resort candy making sometimes (easily moved leaving the land to be developed into soemthing else)

    they could put a showbuilding behind Screamin http://www.micechat.com/showthread.php?t=773

    they could also stand to redevelope alot of the Route 66 area (alot of people would enjoy an enclosed mollaholand madness or whatever) they could also stand to kill either Burger Invasion or Pizza Oh Mow Mow Mow or whatever and put a ride around that area

    The first thing they need to do is drop the boring, mundane, here and now, hip and edgy, California theme.

    Yup. I never understood why TDA thought I would want to go to a park themed on California when I am in.... California! I mean, duhh!

    If I want to see Napa or SF or Yosemite... I'd just go there!

    If I was a tourist from back east, I'm in California for my visit. After I go to the park... I'd just go there!

    Take me somewhere or somewhen I haven't been and am not bloody likely to go!

    California is a very large state, as you know, so it is not practical for tourists to visit the entire state--most just come to Southern California for a vacation. I find that DCA is much more geared toward tourists than locals, probably by design. That would be fine if it had the ability to attract a substantial number of tourists, but it doesn't yet.

    Timon lot is an obvious location for expansion.

    Use it and get the last of the original parking lot out of the way.
