    What are they going to do with the DCA Preview Center?

    Hello all.

    Just a quick question. I apologize if this has already been addressed, but what is going to become of the DCA Preview Center once it is done with its job of previewing things?

    Once DCA is complete, there will be no need to have the preview center, so what will they do after that? Turn the preview buildings (from what I understand -- the San Francisco buildings near the Golden Dreams theatre) into shops, or put in a new ride?

    Any ideas?

    There's always something to preview somewhere at a Disney park. No sense in limiting it to just the DLR.

    Well, if as has been hinted, there are further plans out past this first 5 year set, then it will continue being a preview center. As there are also plans for DL and will always be things changing across both parks, I don't see why they can't keep using it indefinitely. Can even include information on the upcoming west coast cruise ship if they want.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the WALT Disney Gallery. You got your Disney Gallery back, only they substituted the location in New Orleans Square to DCA.

    Actually, I think the days of such short-sighted thinking are over at DLR.

    I agree with this. There are still rumors of additional hotels, the third park, current hotel remodels, Resort expansion, any new additional attractions to both Disneyland and DCA, etc.

    The DCA Preview Center will never be completed as long as there is development budget left in the bank.

    Re: What are they going to do with the DCA Preview Center?

    yeah, there's always new stuff going on at disneyland and the other parks, and always new disney movies coming out, so even if disneyland goes through a period of not having a lot of new stuff specifically in anaheim, there will be plenty of props and info on other disney stuff to interest people. maybe it could even take the place of the disney gallery in offering a place to view retro concept art from the park, costumes and props for movies, etc. that always drew me in, especially to see the pirates stuff!

    Re: What are they going to do with the DCA Preview Center?

    Unless they bring back the Disney Gallery in NOS, I think the DCA Preview Center should be called the Walt Disney Gallery and be a permanent fixture. Plus it can be labeled as an attraction and be presented to the board, the press and the public as one of X number of new attractions at DCA.
