  • Old Millionaire Building (Stage 17) to become Meeting space starting September, 2006

    Looks like there will be no new attraction in the former WWTBAM-PI! building in DCA for quite awhile....

    Disney's California Adventure Opens New Event Venue - Stage 17

    Stage 17 opens in September 2006 in the Hollywood Pictures Backlot area of Disney's California Adventure. The new indoor venue boasts more than 10,000 square feet of carpeted, divisible floor space in a real sound stage setting. Stage 17 is the perfect place for an event of any size and with its built-in video and audio systems, complete with production booth, the room can also play host to dazzling presentations and memorable meetings.

    Sounds like a waste of space.

      hey.. it might make disney some cash.... that was actually a soundstage right... meaning you could theoretically tape something or produce something for disney channel at DCA and work on it in there? that or throw lots and lots of parties.. lol

        I rather see something like Rock N Rollercoaster in there.

          Eh, that's all they're using it for anyway. Might as well spruce it up a bit. It just looks really sketchy in there at the moment. I hope Hollywood and Dine also gets a revamp to make it into a useful space.

            ...What a waste.

            It's a theme park. Not an office building.

            With Hollywood & Dine back there used exclusively for parties and corporate events, why make another building only a couple hundred feet away into a similar venue? Let's get an attraction in there, for cryin out loud.

                I think the bigger problem is there is an "Old" millionaire building in the first place. The park is five years old, Millionaire was built after the park opened, and it's been closed for awhile now. There needs to be better planning than to create an attraction that lasts 2-3 years and then is abandoned entirely.

                    ^ I always find it funny when people say that they shouldn't put RnRC in DCA because they already have screamin'. It's NOT the same thing. Yes it they both have a launch, but that's about the extent of it.

                    I don't see people complaining that Space Mtn, Matterhorn and Big Thunder all have lift hills.

                    If they wanted to build RnRC in that area they should have/could have done it before Monsters went in, using Hollywood n' Dine. Now, it's too late to add anything of substance to that corner of the park without going into the tram area/shuttle zone.

                      I say put the muppets show in there and use the space of the old muppets building for a new "D" ticket ride. I doubt theres enough room for an e-ticket but hey anything woudl work. Muppets is so big its a waste of space. I know its too small to put " the Great movie ride" but something along those lines would be great!.

                        they are (suppose to be) simiar... sure.. RNRC has more inversions.. but both have a launch, and sound...

                        RNRC would also just make DCA more thrill... you need family attractions as well..

                          We are talking about "Millionaire" here...*anything* short of knocking the building down is an improvement. Although this doesn't make for an exciting start of Iger's promised revamp of DCA. Personally, I think the hundred-million dollar promise is much like Pressler's "Atlantis in 2003" promise...find something that needs immediate attention, promise them the world, make the date far into the future, and let the problem slowly slip out of people's minds over the years until it's not as urgent. I'd be WAY more impressed if he earmarked $100 million for DCA in 2007, but this Millionaire building needs some kind of ride since DCA can use all the new rides it can get.
