    DCA C-A-L-I-F-O-R-N-I-A sign pics please!

    I always watch people climb all over the California sign infront of DCA and try and take pictures with each letter. The other day I was staring at the I's, and F and noticing that people just stood by them...sooo being the evil girlfriend that I am and having nothing better to do that early in the morning I made my boyfriend climb atop the F. I was cruel about it...I laughed at his first few attempts and when he got to the top I teased him about falling. I got a picture of him which didn't come out great but could have been worse and looking at it got me to wondering what other creative sign pictures people have taken.

    Please post all pictures with the C-A-L-I-F-O-R-N-I-A sign (or any other unique signs) here ^.^ Maybe if I get enough I can turn them into a little project.

    LOL, that's funny. However, I don't think the Disney lawyers would be too pleased. LOL

    PS...Still funny though.

    Wow!!! And climbing up into the middle of the "A" is an accomplishment for me.....

    This may be totally in left field, but isn't that a really bad example to set for other adults, kids, etc? I don't mean to be a buzzkill, but if he falls, and is injured, that's not going to be helpful for him, or other DLR patrons.

    'A' for effort though on the climbing!

    A cast member actually saw him climb up (three of them did I believe) and none of them sent us any looks of disapproval or told him to get down or anything. I used to think "Why are people climbing all over the letters" but I've come to the conclusion that they are kind of expected to?

    Hmm...if I saw that I would be shaking my head. That looks very dangerous and if he were to fall...who would be responsible? I'm just sayin'

    I think the employees must just be apathetic because they're being paid insulting wages.

    Cal. OSHA does not allow someone to stand or sit on anything without a back that is taller than so many inches, so Disney could be held responsible if your boyfriend was to fall and injure himself.

    Well at least it would be Disney's fault and not mine (okay bad joke)
    I would have felt REALLY REALLY terrible if he had fallen (injury or no injury it would have scared me), but I had faith in his abilities (not to mention the car keys were stuck ontop for motivational purposes...soo we kinda NEEDED him to get up there. I didn't throw the keys up there though I swear I'm not THAT evil).

    What I do propose though is placing a little no climbing sign somewhere or putting some decorative rope around the letters. Something to show that they don't encourage people to climb all over them, because it seems to me that people ENJOY climbing up and down and sitting on and in the letters.

    I have a feeling that when D.C.A.'s entrance is re-imagined the letters will be gone. As soon as the plans were revealed, many people in Theme Park Operations realized that there would be liability issues.
