    Tom Staggs states that Disney will "likely increase" capital spending for DCA - 9/17

    http://www.iht.com/articles/ap/2007/...ey-Economy.php


    The company will likely increase capital spending to beef up its lagging second park in California, Staggs said.

    Disney's California Adventure opened in 2001 next door to Disneyland and has been a disappointment to the company, which has steadily added attractions to the park. Disney is not likely to open any new parks in the United States in the foreseeable future, Staggs said.
    FYI, Tom Staggs is the Chief Financial Officer for The Walt Disney Company. (Basically the number 2 man in charge of the entire company).

    So this is the first "Official" acknowledgement of the major DCA overhaul.

    I hope there is an official announcement tomorrow. If not, I will be extremely let down. Meg Crofton is due to speak tomorrow about a bunch of crap (YOAMD) and "the future of the Disney park" so one can only hope. I just wish it didn't have to be from in-over-her-head Meg.

    The part about no new parks in the US in the foreseeable future sure does make all this 3rd gate talk seem blue sky.

    Expansion of Grand Californian Hotel which will include DVC villas.

    Good to hear that Disney is talking about increasing their spending on DCA. Especially since they've now required we, the guests, to increase our spending on DCA...
