    DCA Reboot Failure?

    We all know by now that DCA is getting a lot of money thrown at it for a major overhaul. But what if after all the hype and promises they can't deliver? What if $1.2 billion isnt enough (See Jim Hills latest)? If they cant deliver the quality of park that we are all now expecting, isn't this going to hurt their credibility? Are we expecting too much? If we are, the Disney company should be honest and not hype this massive overhaul up to be more than it is. The last thing Disney needs to do is disappoint loyal guests again, personally I hope the hype is true I would love to see DCA become the greatest second gate ever, but I guess I will just have to wait and see. I'm rooting for you Disney.

    As far as I know know, Disney has been rather mum on the whole situation. The hype is being generated by the fans.

    Yeah, that's what I think. Most people I've talked to about it aren't Disney fans to the same level that we here at MiceChat are and they have little to no idea that DCA was getting this redo. But like you OP, I too have faith that Disney can learn from the mistakes they've made and will continue to buy the hype.

    Remember, Dreams come true!... and mermaids are hot, even on Halloween.

    Re: DCA Reboot Failure?

    Let's wait to judge the finished product, I say. Certainly the Imagineers didn't get all the money that they wanted for this project, but Mr. Hill is also not really acknowledging the fact that two hotels and Downtown Disney took up a decent amount of how much went into the original expansion project.

    They'll do what they can. I'm praying that they'll make some smart decisions and I'll enjoy going to DCA a heck of a lot more than I do now.

    I think they'll at least be able to accomplish that.

    Let's trust Lasseter and those geniuses over at WDI and hope that DCA will become great.

    Re: DCA Reboot Failure?

    I believe if Disney continues this standard of Pixar rides, it will be a huge failer. PIXAR wont get DCA recognition. There are themes that Disney could use that could be HUGE for DCA that Disney hasn't even shown a slight interest in. Goldrush? Chinatown? Earthquakes? Things Disney could build awesome rides after.

    Re: DCA Reboot Failure?

    The lack of imagination is disgusting. And yeah...too much "pixarization" just turns the park into a living billboard (if that makes sense). I say they should be asking little children to come up with an attraction and use that as inspiration. DCA needs originality...a dash of pixar is cool and i always like to see how some one can adapt a film into a ride, or vice versa, but make it tasteful and not a major thrust of pixar all at once.

    Meh. Pre-opening reviews of DCA were lackluster, and they were right.

    To the OP: That's part of the risk of change. It's a risky investment, as all investments can be. Leaving it the same creates a risk of losing long-term brand prestige.

    Well, any change will be an improvement over what DCA is now. We must be realistic though - DCA will never be Disneyland.

    True, but AN improvement shouldn't cost $1.2 billion. It had better be the most spectacular improvement this world has ever seen.

    If it fails, it fails, they won't rebuild or do anything to it really. They just can't keep throwing money at something that will never work.

    Re: DCA Reboot Failure?

    Well, I think it starts with how you view DCA in the first place. I like DCA and I'm generally happy with it. I look forward to all of the additions and improvements. DCA can only get better due to this extra love (i.e. $$$).

    Secondly, it will depend on how realistic -- or unrealistic -- a person's expectations are. Some people are going to say, "Wow!" while others are going to say, "That's it??". You can't please all of the people all of the time.

    However, I am convinced that some people will never like DCA. Disney could spend $2 or $3 billion and it wouldn't change some people's minds about it. To them, it will always be this not-properly-themed park that isn't as good as Disneyland. I don't think these are the people Disney needs to aim to please. Disney has to aim to please the masses with these changes, provide enough to do in the park and find a way to add some intangeable Disney magic that DCA currently lacks. If they do that, then it will be a $1.2 billion well spent.

    Maybe they should put you in charge.

    As you say, they need "imaginative" people.
