  • [Chat] Evidence That DCA Phase 2 May Begin As Early As 2012 Or 2013

    As many of you might recall, it was announced back in November, 2012 on the Disney Parks Blog ( Important Update on Disney ) that the popular Disney;s California Food & Wine Festival at DCA is cancelled for 2011 and 2012 - and without any indication of when it might return. In other words it is cancelled indefinitely, as long as major construction is on-going at the park. This spells out one thing to me: When Phase 1 is complete, Phase 2 will immediately begin, and possibly even beforehand. Keep your eyes peeled and ears perked for regular announcements, D23 announcements, and changes at the Blue Sky Cellar in 2012.

    More like Wishful thinking....most likely Phase 2 is happening no matter what but we don't know what they are really adding to the park besides retheming the Condor Flats and Hollywoodland

      They might do a thing or two starting fall of 2012 but I'm pretty sure that summer is going to be fairly construction free compared to what we're seeing now.

      Food and Wine could easily make a comeback in 2013 if park management really thought it'd improve attendance and was doable. It clearly wouldn't work now with so many areas ripped up.

      Leads me to question how successfull Food N Wine really was?



      Blue Sky Cellar is going to be pretty interesting in 2012 considering once Carsland opens it'd be odd for them to simply show off something already present in the park. (though I guess this Mermaid exhibit is bound to have some overlap).


      Actually how often do they update the cellar?

        ^around every 6 months-8 months, we say the last update last June I believe.
        I am sure they will have more than enough Blue Sky stuff for DCA for the next ten years from the show that will replace Aladdin (plus the art of the new building), to Hollywood land rides, and even Conderflats changing over, also more stuff being added to Carsland after it opens, the Mc Carthey theater, and the Pier will get more changes too and so will WOC.....DCA is going to be a busy park for at least the next 10 years then it will become like Disneyland were it will be more about maintaining the park and small updates.
        Happy Halloween!!!

          Major changes will come to Hollywoodland, most of Golden State (including Condor Flats), and new additions will be added to Cars Land. Of course Phase 2 will occur no matter what. My point is that it will likely happen much sooner than expected.

            ^we will see I don't think we'll see any big changes with phase 2 until the beginning of 2013 since they have enough going on as is with 2 new lands being built.

              If Food & Wine were clearly coming back in 2013, Disney would have announced it. There is no set time for changes in the exhibits. They simply occur as Disney has them ready for display in relationship to how close they are to begining construction, or constructionupdates.

              You are right that the Blue sky Cellar exhibits we have to look forward to in the future are quite exciting. Still, most if not all of what you mentioned should hit BSC by late 2011 or early 2012. Odds are Phase 2 attractions will be on display at the time that Cars Land opens.

                I really don't know. I'm just guestimating myself. 2013 would certainly be plenty eary enough. I just sense that Disney will want to have something totally new and exciting to show off at the Blue sky Cellar in 2012, right when Cars land is opening to the public. they like to keep us on our feet with excitement and wonder...those Disney scoundrels!

                  Depends since Cars land opens and then Buena Vista Street opens 6 months later also WOC might have a new Holiday show that year too so I don't know if we'll see much in the Blue Sky Cellar until the end of 2012, since that's when the first phase ends.

                    I thought that Bob Iger's statements about DCA in his letter to the shareholders sounded positive for the future. Here's what he said:

                    A couple of years ago, we significantly stepped up investment in Disney California Adventure, a park that was underperforming in comparison with its neighbor Disneyland. Our first step was to open World of Color, which combines smart storytelling, technological innovation and brilliant execution in a way that only Disney can.

                    World of Color has attracted record crowds to California Adventure with a spectacular new form of storytelling that uses stunning digital imagery to bring our characters to life on an ever-changing canvas of light, water, mist and fire. Its success gives us confidence in the rest of the California Adventure expansion, which culminates in 2012 with the opening of Cars Land, a whole new 12-acre land devoted to Lightning McQueen, Mater and their friends.
                    I think the fact that he mentioned that they are feeling more confident about this phase of work makes it also more likely they'll decide to move forward with the rest of the plans.
                    The Mickey audience is not made up of people; it has no racial, national, political, religious or social differences or affiliations; the Mickey audience is made up of parts of people, of that deathless, precious, ageless, absolutely primitive remnant of something in every world-wracked human being which makes us play with children’s toys and laugh without self-consciousness at silly things, and sing in bathtubs, and dream and believe that our babies are uniquely beautiful. You know…the Mickey in us.

                      Another RW speculation thread!!! (If I had ~35 thread starts this year I could probably make few correct predictions too )

                      Anyway. There is nothing to confirm or deny this and the food festival isn't planned far enough ahead for this to be any true indication. I certainly hope that "phase II" does happen closely on the heels of "phase one" or more simply that the construction just continues steadily until all of the areas of the park have been addressed. I will wait until real facts come down the pipeline though to make my judgements.

                          when you call any future construction project 'phase 2' - you'll always be right in saying 'phase 2 is happening'.

                          Unless the projects get lumped together into a cohesive effort that is approved and funded together - it's nothing more then 'work that was deferred' and is really just future projects.

                            Exactly. I don't think we will see a giant "phased-approach' like we see with "phase 1"... there will be tons of future one-off projects and such... nothing like the +$1billion package we see now. IMHO.

                              This just shows how unsure everyone is. I have heard that phase two is dependant on the success of phase one. Therefor the food and wine fest it's scheduled more tentatively because it leaves a back door if you will fir disney if they aren't completely ready for a new expansion. And it seems unlikely that disney would want to pursue another expansion right after a huge one, rather than enjoy the profits of a successful park for a while.
