  • DCA Expansion Phase 2 begins in 2011

    Hey I was looking through the DCA article on wikipedia and they updated the info on DCA's expansion including the second phase. Here's the link:

      There's a lot that isn't accurate on that wiki page. Cars Land is 13 acres not the reported 12. Orange Stinger is not going away but will be rethemed to 'the band concert'. And the expansion including entrance and what not is to be finished in 2011.

      The next phase that includes Golden State plans is not going to be attempted until after Carsland will be built and finished in 2012. They might speed things up but as of now, according to Bob Weiss and Marty Sklar, animals will not be added to GRizzly for a while. There's also no plans to add an E-ticket by California Screamin.

      Stay tuned to Mice Chat's California Adventure Tracker which will only update when there is official news and with rumors that hold more weight: http://micechat.com/forums/showthrea...ker-81393.html

        Coheteboy's got it.

        Carsland, which is part of Phase 1 will not be open until 2012. The second phase will not begin until the first phase is complete and deemed a success.

        The wiki page is incorrect.

          Still the Orange Stinger should be removed. It's just a Zierer Wave Swinger in an orange. Not what I call Disney quality.

            The orange is going away... the swing will be rethemed.

              What was the idea behind the orang Swing? It seems kind of odd. Was it a tribute to the Agi industry? out of all the things in the park that one seems the most misplaced.

                I think they were trying to give California the "Big Orange" theme like New York's "Big Apple." It was kinda a lame idea.

                However, the bees and orange motif does make sense. Never realized it until me, my wife, and her family were caught in a swarm of bees in North San Diego County. They were heading from one grove of orange trees on one side of the property to the other. After we made sure everyone was okay, my wife and I both commented "well, now we know what the backstory to the Orange Stinger is." We're Disney geeky like that.

                      Disneyland is also in the heart of Orange County. Disneyland itself, was built over what used to be an Orange Grove. And the designers just wanted a giant orange to look at.

                        Hope the OP saved their receipt so they can exchange that CHAT flag for one that reads, RUMOR.

                          They say that World of Color will be up and running in 2009. That's less than a year away!

                              I'm not so sure about a rethemed Orange Stinger.

                              It smacks of "What can we do with the carny hardware we already have?", rather than "what would be the best new ride for DCA?"
