    They need to work on what they have now and how to improve them (reworking TL, making DCA self-sufficient) before they should be concerned about building their 3rd gate.

      This pole is ludicris. They are planning a 3rd gate so stop whining about something already in the works but years away. They are aware DCA needs work and it will get it, but its still a baby for crying out loud. Give it time. In 10 to 15 years DCA will expand, reform itself and create a better experiance. Heck even Disneyland had it's fair share of hiccups when it opened.

      So don't worry about a 3rd Gate, it will happen soon enough whether you want it or not.

        It is not ludcriuous. DCA has been a huge failure both in terms of attendance and attractions. DCA should be dealt with first.

          The reason DCA attendance is as high as it is because of all the Southern california coupond and 2 for 1 tickets. Major work is needed and Disney should pool all its resources to fix DCA.

            They need to start buying land to make the third gate, then slowly build it...quietly telling no one their plans.

              Its is not worth debating the envitable on the 3rd Gate issue. I know you have strong feelings regarding the corrections and expansion of DCA, however we have no contol over the planning and execution of a 3rd Gate. I agree that DCA needs work, almost no one here will disagree- the 3rd gate scenario is already in play but as fans we discuss it in hopes of avoiding the pitfalls of the previous failure as seen at DCA.

              So hence discussing whether it should or should be planned for is irrelvent because IT IS BEING PLANNED FOR IN REALITY. Should we discuss means to fix DCA go right ahead, I am all ears. *pun intended*

                You fix DCA, then you think about another park.

                Last we need are 2 DCA's on our hands.

                  What do you mean by "now"?

                  If now is "have it open within the next 5 years", then no.... DCA and Tomorrowland still need too much work. They need to expand DTD and add a 4th resort hotel to meet demand.

                  If "now" is within 10 years or so, then yes!

                    Agree with the last poster...

                    If "now" is immediately (or within five years), definitely work on DCA.
                    If "now" is for opening ten years from now (which I think is the real plan), then
                    definitely Yes.

                    If I was Disney (and I'm not!), I'll be thinking about a "3rd gate" because they need
                    it (and fourth and maybe even a fifth hotel!) They really need to make
                    the DLR much closer to WDW in terms of "offerings". They need to start
                    planning w/ the cities for sewage and traffic, etc. They need to start buying
                    land now.

                    Also they'll be in REAL trouble if they haven't fixed DCA ten years from now.
                    (maybe even five years from now).

                    All completely my personal opinion... your personal mileage may differ... :-)

                        I voted for NO!! They need to fix Tommorowland and DCA before they start a 3rd theme park in Anaheim.

                          For two years I've been saying that Disney needs to fix DCA before building a new park. I've changed my mind. I think they should go ahead and build a stellar new park with a huge budget. Then close huge sections of DCA and rebuild them. The rest of DCA can be given for free to people with day passes to the other two parks until DCA has been fixed. So I voted to go ahead and build the new gate now.

                            You know, I really like that idea because it will give the opportunity for expansion without completely taking out the park, but I wonder how the people would get around a park that would have so much construction going on ....

                              I know this question has been asked 1000 times, but where will they build the 3rd theme park? How close is it to Disneyland?

                                The general situation, is that there will be a third gate at DLR, but not for about a decade. It takes about that long to build a theme park from blue-sky comception to grand opening, so yes folks, the pencil pushers at TDA are in the process of preliminaries for a third gate, but, as I'm sure most of you know, they can't afford to make another DCA-type mistake/overestimate. Land aquisition have, for the most part, already been made.

                                  it took Disney what ten years after Epcot to build MGM? seems pretty wise to me if that's how Disney is going to pace itself

                                  should Disney go about setting up infulstructure in the form of both land and hotels? yes they should

                                  more land is better and buying up hotels and expandint the resort to create a cohesive whole that guests can travel through would be prime

                                  but to actualy START construction on the third gate? it's way to early for that

                                  DCA at LEAST needs a couple more Etickets as well as a more well rounded out path system

                                  I don't believe that DCA is quite the spectacular failure people are making it out to be (read some of the expectations that MANAGEMENT set up for the park before it oppend they must've been high on something) it's done margionaly alright and it's attendance has been increasing slowly over time (it wasn't marketed well beyond the basic scope of California so basicaly awareness of it in my area of Washington has come about by people going to Disneyland seeing the second park, not having time to stop by because they didn't plan out their trip besides the usual one day stop at Disneyland *which is what most tourists have done* so that leaves them to plan for it the next time the visit which may not be fore a few more years hence the slow rise in awareness and popularity)

                                  DCA needs more rides and more advertising to establish in the publics mind that Disneyland is now a resort and not just a stop on a larger trip (probably Disney's biggest problem is this, in florida Disney is the draw, but in California people don't just come for Disney they come for Hollywood and other prestigious areas and only plan a short stop at Disneyland rather then staying there as it's rather expensive)

                                      I think it was more like 7 years....which means they got about 3 years to break ground, design jaw dropping attractions and construct the whole thing if they wish to stay on the same sorta timeline

                                        Businesses don't plan to fail, they fail to plan .......

                                        Even if the third gate wouldn't open until 2020, it is not too early to do some planning. Property has to be acquired, deals made with the City, ride systems invented and tested,supporting infrastructure built/rebuilt .... these thing take time, and I'd like to be around when the third gate opens (assuming it's something I'd want to do .....)
