I'll expand on that because I know when anyone on here says those words they immediately get shut down and get labeled as someone who wants the park to be a museum. Like I said earlier, the CPG offered something different. It's one of those little things that separates Disneyland from other theme parks. It offered live music, guest participation, and entertainment to those who stopped in to watch. Not to mention the countless schools/groups that had performances there throughout the years. Even if the swing dancing was only a few days a week it brought a certain life to the hub, and it was a tradition spanning back to the parks opening.
While I understand the move they made, it's still a bummer. The PFF area looks amazing, and will no doubt bring in heaps of people, plus we get a live show back in the Fantasyland Theater. So that's a win I suppose. I just wish it could have been done different. But, at least we still have the Motorboat Cruise dock..for now.
