    Awesome! I've been waiting for something to be able to keep a tab on progress in the park. I was dreading having to drudge through multiple forums to keep myself updated

    Re: Disney's California Adventure Project Tracker

    I think they should think outside the box, and bring back a transportation system that can serve guests in both parks....an individual people mover. They could lay three main tracks, have computer controlled cars, and allow guests to move from where they are to where they would love to be in just a few moments - all along the Disney highway of the future.

    Guests could board the cars, then select a destination with a pad or voice recognition. There can be several stops along the way, convenient to the DLR lands, or DCA stops.

    Yes, it would be expensive, however, much less than just a few years ago. The cars can use RFID to track one another, and computer technology is good enough to allow guests to approve their destinations well in advance. It would also bring a very valuable technological advantage to the DCA resort, and give both Disneyland and DCA world-wide TV coverage (just like in the old days).

    I know Disney is bringing back the red-trollies...but has everyone at Disneyland forgotten what the Monorail was about???

    Somebody has to have the balls to take a risk. DCA has already failed once, when Eisner cheaped out and gave us the New Jersey State Fair instead of a park. Don't make the mistake again, build something unique, that we (as guests) and you (as proprietors) can be proud of experiencing together.

    Re: Disney's California Adventure Project Tracker

    Why are they closing Muppet*Vision 3D and replace it with Mickey's Philharmagic? Isn't there enough space to build an extra "studio" and put the show in this building. Or is Muppet Vision not a very succesful attraction?

    Re: Disney's California Adventure Project Tracker

    Thanks MG! I think it will be great to have one thread where we can go to see photos and more information as it becomes available. Maybe the powers that be can even make this thread a sticky so we can get to it easily over the next few years.

    Well done.

    Hopefully this can help prevent a lot of the " what, when, why, and how?" threads popping up all over the place...All information, one source.
