    I think there should be like sail boats and stuff. but then again that could make the area look really tight and crammed.

    They have the ability to make waves. For some reason, they hardly ever use them.

    Re: Why is there no boat ride...

    I've always thought it would have been cool if they actually made a beach with breaking waves just like a real beach. For a park supposed to be about California, this was something that should have been a no-brainer for a section of the Bay. They have that sand area with some plants and a run-down looking fence like you may find on a beach between the Orange Stinger and Zepher, but it's up above the water line.

    Re: Why is there no boat ride...

    I toured the construction site a couple of times before the park opened to Guests, and I was, at those times, very much impressed by the way the body of water there made me feel as if I was at the ocean. One easily forgets that Katella Avenue is just a few feet to the South.

    The waves that crash against the rock jetty are vitally important, and I agree that more waves would achieve the effect in as full a way as Disney used to attempt with its illusions.

    I also would like to see yet another name change.

    "Paradise Bay" is one of countless insipid names used at Disney's California Adventure. They reek of creative bankruptcy.

    Dustysage, is that concept art anywhere online for viewing, that you know of?

    Maybe they should have a fountain like the one in Hong Kong
    It already has things in it that would match perfectly with paridise pier
