    The more you look at it, the uglier it gets. [DCA]

    I can't help but notice how drab DCA is starting to look. The more and more I look at pictures of the park, the more I can't wait to see walls up and things being reworked and made for the better. It all comes from the attention to detail that the Midway Mania building is now getting. If you look at the pictures of how it is starting to shape up, it only makes Paradise Pier look worse and worse. I can't wait to see what the finished project looks like not only with Midway Mania, but the entire re-thought park. I also can't wait to see them tearing out the Maliboomer, CALIFORNIA letters, tile murals, and Golden Gate bridge. I just wish they were starting NOW!

    Al's column added to my anticipation.

    Agreed. I'm still skeptical that DCA will ever rival Disneyland in terms of sheer quality and fun, but that's kind of a given. Disneyland is one of those "right time, right place" sort of things.

    I hate to hate but I kinda hate DCA.

    It's cool as a free little park to retreat to when the crowds get heavy, or to jump on TOT and leave, but as a true second gate, it's quite a disappointment.

    On with the construction, only time will tell if that place can find a place in my heart.

    As a DCA lover (and I don't mean this in the supporter of mediocrity way that was mentioned in the already mentioned Al article). I'm gonna leave my judgement on the park until something actually happens.

    These rumors that are circulating sound fantabulous, but I won't pass judgement 'til I see them in action.

    I also don't think it's an ugly park! But that could just be me and a handful of others (I'm actually psyced I finally get to go back to DCA this weekend... my last two DLR trips have been DCA-less)

    I feel that Disneyland is a whole lot better with DCA and DTD as compared to before. So DCA may not size up, but it sure adds a lot to an allready wonderfull place. Stop the hatin suposidly you live longer.

    Well, the view that we had of DCA from the 14th floor of the PPH last week was terrific!

    I started each day by enjoying a cup of hot chocolate while perched in the chair looking out the window of the room watching the sun come up.

    And I ended each evening by sitting there watching all of the lights glitter in the darkness.

    Couldn't ask for much more than that!

    That reminds me Pirate, DCA is without a doubt one of the most stunning sites in all of California after dark, simple magnificent. I love it .

    Lots of neon I must say. A cheap way to do lighting.

    You must not know a whole lot. Neon is far from cheap, especially on rides that cost several hundreds of millions. What way would you suggest they light it?

    True. I'd rather have Disneyland+DCA than Disneyland by itself...but the margin isn't anywhere near as big as it should be. DCA still feels to me like a nice little bonus...not like it's half the fun of going to the resort.
