    Why not make it like a real pier and have some sea lions or some sea otters swimming around in there, now that would be pretty sweet.

      That would be the best!!!
      Marge: Barnacle Bill's Home Pregnancy Test? Homer, shouldn't we have gone with a better-known brand?
      Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
      Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
      Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
      Marge: Pink.
      Homer: D'oh!
      Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"

        I dont believe people in the lake would ruin the atmosphere, but it would be nice for a laser (like back in the day at the hotel) or light show.

        I agree with Jspider :bow: they should do a Mermaid attraction there. IN the Anaimation Building (the greatest attraction in DCA) they have a mere sampling of what could have been a fantastic voyage "under the sea" with Ursula and the rest. Who knows what the future holds for that park though?

          With the chemicals and treatments they put in that water to keep it clean? The sea lions would need biohazard suits to swim in it...

            Hmm good point maybe thats why they dont have people in there either. Ah well! Seemed like a fun idea at first.

              Plus Sea Lions and Sea Otters are protected... So you would need an animal protection staff... That is why I think if you have an Aquarium style attraction you can keep the animals in their natural habitat... Even though these would have been raised in captivity and cannot be returned to the wild...

              Plus you can have the flying whales from Fantasia 2000 in a film display area...

                Personally I think they should put in a water show like at Bellagio. That way it can entertain day or night (for those few night hours they're actually open.)

                  Cool idea! I second that.

                    Knwoing TDA they wont put any rides or show in that lake or puddle. Its more of the themeing aspect of the park. But i would suggest that they would put something mor animated or some movement in that sucker. Its DEAD.. well except for bird crap island...hahaha put some mini boats with sails or disney crusie ship floating around or like a small island in the middle thats kinda like what they have in the canal boats with some movement on the island....Anything to make it more active....please

                      I think Kevin Yee's column of 3/8 goes a very long way to illustrating how some recent changes to the parks (particularly DCA) miss the mark. Uncle Walt offered the opportunity (via total immersion) for guests to experience otherwise impossible scenarios. He didn't create Main Street USA as contempory, but as 1902. He made it possible to "go back again." Frontierland was a place where we could live the early days of America. Tomorrowland was unique in that it present a reality that was yet to come. You get the idea. The point is that he created "worlds" that existed only at Disneyland. Whether because they were historical, fancifull, exotic or futuristic.

                      Now...on topic regarding DCA. There isn't much there that can't seen somewhere else. DCA's Hollywood may be cleaner and more compact than the real thing, but it's nothing unique. Why not do Hollywood in the 1920's instead. That is unique and something that cannot be experienced anywhere else. Condor Flats comes close. The PP area is just not anything special. Re-theming to a boardwalk in the 30's would create a more Disney-like experience.

                      As for the lake, that's a large unused body of water! OK..if we're stuck with the California theme...how about recognizing the Navy's presence in Calif. Stick a real submarine or Naval vessale in the water and let people come aboard. I know there are enough restaurants already, but this would create an opportunity for an interestingly themed eatery. I also think people would have some fun piloting their own small boats or paddle boats. Some A,B & C class attractions. That lake is just waiting to be played-with.
                      "Yesterday, a man walked up to me and said, 'Isn't it a shame that Walt Disney couldn't be here to see this?' and I said, "He did see this, that's why it's here."

                        Great idea. If not specifically swan paddle boats, at least some kind of boat attraction, since the Motorboat Cruise has been closed for decades.

                          AA sea life. Real sea life stinks and is expensive to maintain. AA clams can squirt water at you like on the 3 Stooges.

                          Surfers. Oil platforms. Maybe a Spruce Goose ride. A Japaneese sub ride (with narration by Slim Pickins). A sailboat ride. AA body-builders (like Venice Beach). Queen Mary Restaurant.

                            Of course if you want to be more up to date you'd have to add a waterspout attraction...

                            And what's the deal with a California themed park without a single Earthquate themed ride, show or experience!?!

                              Fill it with alligators. People like to watch alligators laying around.

                                    Yeah! Stooges rule! They should have their own attraction.

                                          What about they put in a AA humpback whale? The fin comes up and slaps down every now and then, and they squirt water/fog into the air off the back in various places around the lake...
