    California Adventure (worst park ever?)

    Is it me, or does anybody else agree that this is by far one of the worst parks ever built by the Walt Disney Company?
    I think Walt Disney would be horrified if he saw that park!

    hehehehehehehe LOL

    This is probably the most frequent topic on Disney boards. Somehow, everything always comes back to DCA being crap. I do think that they are trying to fix it. I'm just not sure that it will ever be the park that it could have been if they had built it correctly from the start.

    While I havenít been to the parks outside the USA I would agree that the DCA is the weakest park of all he ones built so far. (I have a bad feeling about Hong Kong).

    But I donít totally hate the park. I find it frustrating when I go there because I think that it could have been such a nice part and really worthy of the Disney legacy. But due to huge budget cuts and lack of vision on upper management what came out was a cheap version of the possibility.

    It isn't the worst Disney park. That honor goes to Disney Studios in Paris. That park is so bad that Disney should be ashamed that it has the Disney name on it. It has been a few months since I was there and I still feel like I was ripped off. While I'm not a fan of DCA, it at least comes across as an actual theme park - even if there isn't much to do there.

    I think DCA could be a cool park. But it's going to take like 20 years!

    man DCA is awsome but only because it's my favorate park to think up ideas for fixing

    DCA would be a TON better if they just built that darn LA Expansion

    ohhh and my mermaid darkride (oooh I haven't made a thread for that on MiceChate yet have I, and yet it's space is clearly outlined in the planz)

    there are tons of things to do with DCA and you could even keep the California theme (in fact I recommend it but not this hip edgy stuff but a different feel you'll see more on this later)

    I don't know about you guys, but after a couple of hours at the beer cart, DCA gets a whole lot better for me.

    What could have been worse ......how Roy, Walt's brother, and the "sharp pencil" guys would have viewed DCA ....... Walt might not have been able to build any more parks!

    It's not what I would call an ideal park, but it has it's charms. For instance, if I ever get tired of the crowds I can always jump over to DCA.
