    Re: (Once again)Why does everyone not like DCA???

    I haven't read through this thread, nor have I read the litter-box version, but I'll offer my reasons.

    I don't hate DCA, but I'm disappointed with it because they violated principles that make Disney a great company and Disneyland a unique park.
    • Instead of being the creative, proactive leaders they should be, they reacted to other local entertainment offerings like Knott's and Universal and tried to muscle in on their territory
    • Instead of designing unique rides, they took off-the-shelf rides and put a thin Disney veneer on them.
    • They failed to find strong themes for the new park or create immersive environments.
    • The Paradise Pier section is the veritable antithesis of Disneyland. It is the very thing that Walt Disney was reacting against when he built Disneyland, with the only exception being that it's cleaner than the carnies Disney had in mind. Otherwise, it is unimaginative and divides families.
    • it was built on the cheap, assuming that we'd flock to anything with the Disney name on it.
    DCA has potential as a counter-part to DL. I'm looking forward to the day soon when it will live up to that.

      So then judging the design of Toy Story Mania! before its completion seems a little premature.

        Agreed. I'm a Roy Rogers kind of guy, never go into a situation with a preconceived bias.

          I think you mean Will Rogers.

            No GR was right. HE went in to get a burger and fries without any expectations. Witness the proof!

              Tried to get that one through hoping someone would ask who the hell Roy Rogers was but it flopped like aashee on his couch after a twelver.

                I like DCA indirectly because it siphons traffic away from Disneyland. Before DCA was built, the lines at Disneyland were an hour or more. Granted the last time I went to Disneyland before DCA was in 1990 but I remember Disneyland being super crowded.

                But, people who are from out of state and want to satisfy their curiosity will go and spend time at DCA, maybe an entire day there. Having DCA is like adding lanes to a busy freeway
                When I go to Disneyland, I tune my FRS Radio to channel 2, without a quiet code. They're faster than a cell phone and you can talk to a whole group at a time, and you don't have to get everyone's cell phone number in advance.
