    Which DCA 1.0 Elements are Missed?

    It has been over a year since DCA 1.0 kicked the can, and DCA 2.0 rose out of the ashes. I think a year is enough time to start feeling some nostalgia for that now gone flawed park!

    Some of the elements I miss:


    • The iconic California letters at the gate
    • The California Zephyr
    • The Elephant Podiums on the backlot and the original Condor Flats signage
    • The Bell X-1 flying out of a building
    • The Mickey Mouse ears on California Screaming


    I find it funny that I would miss such elements seeing I know the current DCA is a much better experience, and that the original DCA is regarded as poor theme park design. This does not mean I miss some things though. Lets use this forum to drum up nostalgia for our favorite parts of DCA 1.0!

    The Eureka Parade and the Whoopi Goldberg movie, both of which focused on CALIFORNIA.

    I have to agree with you about missing the California letters at the entrance. They made for an excellent photo opportunity. In addition, I miss the Tortilla factory that was replaced by Ghirardelli Chocolate because you got free tortillas.

    That is a great idea! It is one of the elements I miss the most and would be a nice way to incorporate it into the current look

    Beach Boys music.
    "You can cut me off from the civilized world. You can incarcerate me with two moronic cellmates. You can torture me with your thrice daily swill, but you cannot break the spirit of a Winchester. My voice shall be heard from this wilderness and I shall be delivered from this fetid and festering sewer."

    Re: Which DCA 1.0 Elements are Missed?

    What I realy wish is that instead of getting ride of Golden Dreams, they would have upgraded it to more of a California version of The American Adventure. I also think the version that did exist, would have been perfect in the Carthay.
    I also miss Eureka and Mickey on Screamin loop.

    *Golden Gate Bridge
    *California entrance letters
    *Tortilla Factory
    *Maliboomer
    *Looking out at the water in Paradise Pier without all the WOC projectors sticking out of the water. I really wish there was a way to keep those underwater until the show starts.

    *Even though I prefer Buena Vista Street I miss the big Sun Fountain too!


    This is going to sound selfish and I only mean it a teeny bit=P but when TOT wasn't connected to A Bug's Land just because I feel that it's one of the reasons that ride now has a huge line as opposed to before when it was always easy to walk on.
