    A Tribute in Pictures - Paradise Pier (2001 - 2007)

    So since Paradise Pier, as we know it, is going away ... I thought it might be nice to take a look back at the Paradise Pier that was.



    Paradise Pier during the day



























    And at night






    When Lilo and Stitch came out, they had a meet and greet and luau near where the Maliboomer is


    The wall near Paradise Pier has had some different pictures over the years

    This was one of the earliest things in Paradise Pier to go. They also had a Golden Zephyr one. (couldn't find the picture)








    An Avalon Cove sign still exists to this day


    The rest of these signs are sure to go soon




    These lights sure have had their share of critics


    In October of 2002 they had an Angels Victory Celebration after they won the World Series over the San Francisco Giants.





    In January of 2004, they brought the Tower of Terror Rose Parade float to the Amphiteatre area




    During the X-games they had a skateboard/bike ramp in paradise pier


    The Cove Bar has ALWAYS been a popular hang out, even in 2002 you can see a familiar face.


    And of course, Wolfgang Puck didn't last long, but Ariel's Grotto has been around for awhile now.


    New Years Eve is always hopping in Paradise Pier







    Hope you enjoyed.


    If you have more paradise pier/memories to share, feel free to. (I know I'm lacking night pictures)

    FABULOUS SHOTS! Oh the memories, or those soon to be!
    Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
    it's what they are like in their HEART!

    Thanks a lot for that tribute. I happen to really enjoy DCA, and your pictures are beautiful.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Funny what a night sky and lots of lights will do to an area. Its like Disney's version of "beer goggles."

    I am not a DCA hater but PP during the day pales in comparison to PP at night, IMO.

    ^ Agreed, I just wish I had some better night shots of the area.

    I know I have more, I just don't know where they are. Probably need to be scanned.

    Thanks for the photos. Can't say that I'll miss Paradise Pier as it is. Bye-bye stucco and vinyl signs, hello real theming!

    I'll be forever sentimental about the ho-hum wannabe-theming in Paradise Pier, but that's just how I am. I'm sure the new stuff will be better...I hope.

    They are re-theming Paradise Pier. The rides that are staying are CA Screamin', Carousel, Sun Wheel and Maliboomer. Everything from the Orange to Golden Dreams is going the way of the do-do.

    In it's place is 'rumored' to be a beer garden (where the pizza place and McD's is) a Ratatouille coaster (where Mullholland Madness is) and a Little Mermaid Dark Ride (Where Golden Dreams is).

    They are also retheming the side where the games and Screamin' are to match the Toy Story Mania ride. More of a victorian theme.

    Agreed! It's been a while since we have seen most of those buildings and I must say the construction of TMM! looks better than they did.

    Maliboomer may be leaving as well...according to a few sources.

    I like Maliboomer, but wouldn't mind if it left. I just can't see what else they can put in it's spot.
