Ok, we all know the attention DCA is getting and we all know this can't be a bad thing...or can it? First of all, I'm not DCA bashing, TDA bashing, DLR bashing or general abbreviated-things bashing, I'm just not only being pessemistic and playing devil's advocate.
I think DCA could really work, I mean really work and by a diverse (which I think it already is) interesting, big park which has big appeal, especially for tourists. But what if it doesn't work out? My main concern is Pixar. Pixar pixar pixar. I'm sure this has crossed the minds of all micechatters. Is it too much? Or is that a stupid question? A Bug's Land kinda frustrated me at first, I mean, when has CA been famous for, uh, bugs? What relevance has it to the theme? But it was only a little land and while I still hope for a bit of a retheme it probably won't happen. Then Monsters Inc. Okay only one ride but why in Hollywood Pictures Backlot? At least Superstar Limo made thematic sense and was fun though totally had the ability to be instantly outdated. Next up comes Toy Story Mania. I may be wrong on this one, but it got its name changed from Midway Mania. Now, in my opinion, Midway Mania is a good, original not too 'WE ARE PIXAR!!!' name that fits nicely with paradise pier... but Toy Story Mania? Baaaaaad move. Fair enough in MGM as it will be in Pixar place and all.
Next up comes Carland, and another case of unfortunate naming. What the heck is wrong with Route 66? Why must they use a simply horrible generic name like Carland that bears no relevance to CA and also is the only something-land in the whole park (not counting a Bug's Land). Route 66 is enduring, not 'we are pixar' and fitting with the theme.
My basic gripe is that the plans are good but Pixar's presence is being overdone. I've probably missed out a ton of things but these are all I can think of right now. These rides/land should blend in thematically with the rest of the park and fair enough, have Pixar but don't destroy the theme because of it.
Side note: Just a bit of armchair imagineering. I know lots have said how DCA doesn't have much appeal to Californians as they are within driving distance of some of those places, which is something I think DCA can easily take into account. I think the solution is simply to create the California of yesterday, ie the 1920s transport hub, the golden age of Hollywood or whatever, make it a california people can't visit or at least a highly stylised reality, and that, I don't think, would be incredibly difficult.
