            Does it have to be pictures we took?

                  After: Cleaner and much more better looking architectural feeling with some nice beautification. And a more proper looking entry land.



                  3. HOLLYWOOD SECTION:

                  Before: Mediocre rip-off off DHS and such with bland looking signs.


                  After: Almost Better looking area (mostly due to Red Car Trolly and new look for DJLOS building).



                  4. NEW LAND:

                  Before: Another parking lot for cars and such.


                  After: An brand new land themed to Disney/Pixar's Cars with excellent attractions and such.



                  5. PARADISE PIER:

                  Before: Bland and cheap rip-off off California Boardwalks with rarely any Disney theming.


                  After: Better theming and more disney and victorian boardwalk feel to Paradise Pier.

                    That's an amazing change. I'd love to see side by side comparisons of the Paradise Pier.

                      It's amazing how mad have to be the WDI to design paradise pire, just think about it, a replica of a Californian Pier with a giant peach, a Wild Mouse themed as a strange driving test, many giant jellyfish... what were they thinking?

                            I liked the CALIFORNIA letters, but I think that overall the improvements are worth their loss. Besides, I thought I read that they are coming to CAL EXPO, which is just down the street from me. I can visit them!!

                              Here's the park map from Feb 2001 vs. June 2012. Notice how they even include the Grand California in '01 map as to make it seem less bare.

                                  Woah, some amazing posts. I love the new skylines, plus the Mickey wheel is awesome. That is the exact same face i remember seeing as a kid.

                                    After comparing the maps, DCA 1.0 isn't even funny. I can't believe they'd actually allow that pathetic looking place to be called a Disney theme park. Who thought that was an acceptable attempt at Disney quality, anyways?
