The issue here is every opportunity given some of these Disney fanatics take it to poke away at DCA. I've visited 50+ major theme parks in the US. I've worked in three and I can say for a FACT that DCA is one of the best theme park in the United States. Now, that may not correspond with everyone's opinion and I can respect that, but I don't see where it is productive to constantly poke away at what you hate. I really dislike Six Flags Magic Mountain, but I don't make it a point to constantly insult the park.
Also, it seems to me that many here feel like DCA is a failure for Disney. I see it as quite the opposite. Like many company's have done in the past they overprojected the expected operating figures for the park. So it did not meet the 7.5 million estimated attendance, but is it a failure? Is Disney loosing their shirt on this park? Also, does offerring a locals discount during the off-season really accurately indicate that the park is failing?
I honestly don't expect Disneyland fanatics to like DCA, but also I wouldn't expect them to like Epcot, Disney/MGM or Animal Kingdom either. My problem is the Disneyland fanatics who hate DCA have never clearly told what they wanted or expected. Honestly, I can infer that they wanted Disneyland 2, but that is just stupid thinking since it would only deplete the original. Some cry for Westcot, but if you hate DCA, then you'd probably hate Westcot more. It was a dumbed down EPCOT and EPCOT is IMO one of the worst Disney parks.
I personally have found DCA to be a wonderful park and basically a best-of collection of the three other parks in Florida. Also, in comparison to other theme parks it is one of the best in the US and its ranks in the top 10 US theme parks for attendance.
