    Why would we want a third gate? Having to pay two admissions is bad enough. They could fit Star Wars into DCA. Carsland has nothing to do with California and they worked it in.

    Cars Land may not be a perfect fit, but California does have a rich car culture and the mother road, Route 66, leads to the Golden State. And though the geology and topography of Cars Land may vary slightly from the Californian desert, it's similar enough to evoke the same wonder and natural beauty. Not to mention the small town straddling the highway, like the town of Radiator Springs, can be found among dozens of highways in California.

    Star Wars, on the other hand, lacks a solid connection to the state's history, culture, people, and geography. The only way you could work it into the theme of DCA is by connecting it with Hollywood--and that's a pretty weak tie, considering you could do that with any successful film.

    How about a Mos Eisley Cantina bar in DCA.

    Although I wouldn't mind seeing some more Star Wars in a much needed update of Tomorrowland.


    Still a better idea than Avatar in Animal Kingdom!

    Instead of a Star Wars land, I think they should bring SWW out to California..please!! lol besides, the SW Universe is enough to fill an entire theme park. a SW Land gets a no from me, even though I am a crazy obsessed fangirl.

    Yes- because Marvel/Avatar and Star Wars are the same as Cars- which fits in with it's other Pixar themed areas- like Bugs Life.

    No- I don't want a Star Wars Land. Anymore than I think Adventureland should now be Indiana Jones Land.

    Not the same- but thanks.

    Technically speaking Radiator Springs is on the Arizona/Utah border, and nobody is complaining about Cars Land in DCA...

    It was easier to sell people on the future when life was more simple.
    To are so dead on ! so why not call it "Technology Land" cause today it changes every 3 months right!

    Technically speaking, it's never really clear where it takes place.

    However, the STAR WARS universe is clearly not a part of the geography of California. By any stretch of the imagination.

    True. And I wouldn't say that Cars Land is a perfect fit, nor would I pretend that, as one of Disney's most profitable franchises, it was picked out of sheer consideration of how it would enrich the park's Californian theme. Nonetheless, the land possesses qualities that are evocative of Californian life, history, and culture. As I mentioned above, Route 66, car culture, small towns along highways, deserts, etc. are all a part of the state. The fact that Radiator Spring's actual location is never mentioned makes it all the more easy for it to represent the thousands of similar towns found in the states that Route 66 winds through, including California. The massive, awe-inspiring desert scenery, though not a dead-ringer for California's own deserts, still manages to capture the spirit of the desert climate, geography, and topography and the emotions that it evokes. It represents a piece of California that was missing.

    Minus the sheer beauty of Cadillac Range, I wasn't thrilled by Cars Land, but I do think that its thematic ties to California are relatively strong. Not perfection, but the connections do exist and are sensible. Much more than anything you can say for Star Wars.
