    You're saying that the small word "Park" changed the entire logo? Please. It's the same logo with an extra, very small word tacked on, and that didn't change the overall design.

    or will they just make it plain:



    or to go with the newer DCA:

    ^btw, i made that. haha.


    I'd just like to hear what you guys think will happen.
    Personally, I like yours best of all! If only Disney would class up the place like your logo!!

    Re: DCA Logo

    My Guess, when they are done (about 5 years), a New Name for the Park, and a new logo.

    Everything else is quite nice. It's reminiscent of old-fashioned citrus crate labels and postcards.

    thanks.

    ----------------------------

    i dunno if they'd change the name. maybe just drop the "adventure" part.
    "Disney's California"
    I think "California" should stay in the name.
    Just so the park HAS something to build around and theme things too.
    That, and so it makes it different from other disney parks.

    plus, it gives the Imagineers a little more of a challenge to theme attractions to fit in certain areas that still connect to California.

    "Disney's Adventure"
    or something just sounds to general to me.

    I dont know, I have to disagree in that I never got that impression from it.

    Re: DCA Logo

    I don't think I'd go for the "Western Queen" or the "Unicorn" citrus label for DCA's logo.

    The Orange King one isn't so bad, though.

    Re: DCA Logo

    Considering the spin they're putting on a good portion of the park, "Walt Disney's California Adventure" seems like a good name to me, even though it's really long. Seeing as how they're bringing out the romance and nostalgia of the California element, it seems like a name like that would fit. Of course, then people would still be calling it "California Adventure", like "Disney World". Walt seems to get left out, except in commercials. I think Walt's name should be mentioned in there, somewhere.
    I don't think Grizzley Peak will be the official DCA weenie anymore, either. Maybe the theatre will, or the ferris wheel with the big classic Mickey face?
    Oo-de-lally!

    The curvy, multi-colored, gradient-laden logo that DCA debuted with isn't similar to any of these, in my opinion. The only thing I can see the similarity with is the bold "California" typeface. But with the gradient, double-outlines, and several colors applied to it totally kills any connection to citrus labels for me.

    Well, the above labels contain gradients, multiple colors, and double outlines, in addition to bold typefaces.

    In any case, the park's trademark will most likely get a new logogram with the new word mark, so the purple bear will likely be relegated to obscurity. In the interim, Disney should probably stop using the completely generic logotype and use Walt Disney's handwriting for all three words, instead.










    I find this logotype depressing, severe, and unpleasant.

    I actually find this logotype depressing and unpleasant.






    The Walt Disney "handwriting" type font is ugly. It's only useful application is when it is used on the words "Walt" and "Disney" and I would really prefer if Disney would stop using it altogether, except when using it appropriately on the "Walt Disney" name.


    As for the fruit labels, I don't see any gradients on the type. Maybe theres something going on with the "Juciful" but even then it's subtle. Generally, the brand name logos on these labels consist of one or two solid colors. DCA logo's "California" had 5 colors:


    Teal and darkblue (gradient)
    Golden and white outlines
    Orange accent marks on letters

    That's just overkill. And those five colors aren't including the 2 or 3 additional colors the rest of the logo adds in! And if you're using the Grizzly Bear logo, then there are probably another 2 or 3 colors in there. Overall somewhere between 9 and 11 colors in one logo!

    Unneccessary.

    Re: DCA Logo

    A name change wont probably go through, although i think a new logo would definetly benefit the park. With such a big change in theme, A logo like the first one posted would be fitting with the big change.

    Re: DCA Logo

    The closest thing to a name change will probably just be DISNEY'S CALIFORNIA, dropping the ADVENTURE part.
