Rumors have sprung up online that Walt Disney Imagineering may be looking to add "Walt" to the "Disney's California Adventure" park name.
Some of the possibilities Imagineering is reportedly cooking up for "Walt Disney's California Adventure" is, of course, the long-rumored re-theme of Sunshine Plaza to resemble Los Angeles/Hollywood as it looked when Walt Disney stepped off the train from Marceline. Also, the similarly long-rumored re-theming Hollywood Pictures Backlot to 1930s-era Hollywood is also being planned.
What is particularly interesting about the rumors is the suggestion that Imagineers are looking to tear down the Golden Vine Winery complex, including the restaurants, and build a replica of the Disney's Holmby Hills estate. The estate would feature a new restaurant featuring Walt Disney's favorite comfort foods. The highlight of the new Holmby Hills Estate complex would a new train ride departing from the Estate - a sort of replica or inspired-by ride on Walt's personal Carolwood Pacific train. Set high up on a set of intricate set of trestles, the train would wind around the Grizzly Peak Recreation Area.
My question is not whether or not you'd enjoy these rumored additions to the park. Personally, I don't find much crediblity in the rumor's source, but my question is how would transforming DCA into Walt Disney's California Adventure be?
Would/could this be a good idea? Could the inclusion of "Walt" to the park, transforming it to the California he experienced, be a smart move?
Personally, I feel that this could be the perfect transformation of DCA. I'm all for it. A Walt Disney's California Adventure park could potentially rival the Disneyland experience. Walt Disney's Magic Kingdom - Walt's imaginary world of magic and nostalgia would be supremely complimented by an idealized version of the man's reality.
