    Strong evidence to the contrary:
    To all who come to this place of dreams, welcome. Disney California Adventure celebrates the spirit of optimism and the promise of endless opportunities, ignited by the imagination of daring dreamers such as Walt Disney and those like him who forever changed- and were forever changed by- The Golden State. This unique place embraces the richness and diversity of California... Its land, its people, its stories and, above all, the dreamers it continues to inspire.

    Don't try to use poor Bob's own words against him. You can't take the dedication of park seriously, that's just some inspirational sounding crap written by some marketing guru for Bob to say.
    The Mickey audience is not made up of people; it has no racial, national, political, religious or social differences or affiliations; the Mickey audience is made up of parts of people, of that deathless, precious, ageless, absolutely primitive remnant of something in every world-wracked human being which makes us play with children’s toys and laugh without self-consciousness at silly things, and sing in bathtubs, and dream and believe that our babies are uniquely beautiful. You know…the Mickey in us.
    -Walt Disney

    Trust me, I'm not one of the fans who become very angry or upset over rides based on IPs. I've pretty much accepted the idea of original ideas going away for a long time. Still, I will continue to hope for an original concept for Hollywood Land. It could happen.

    DCA stands for Disney CALIFORNIA Adventure, WIR doesn't take place in California or IMHO appeal to a demographic older than 12.
    But Wreck-It Ralph was all about appealing to older gamers. Twelve year olds have never heard of Tapper before.

    I think Carsland works as a distillation of Route 66, complete with leading directly to a Californian oceanside amusement park built on a big pier.
