    Beer = Good.

    GR like beer.
    DCA = Good.

    That's a Doobie Brothers song, isn't it?

    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

    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 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.

    You guess what? That the Toy Story Mania! site looks like construction or that you are familiar with Victorian seaside design?

    Ok, I totally agree. I just think the park seems a little "dirty" because of TSM and stuff like that. If you know what I mean.......And you all arew right about what I said about TSM. I guess I will just have to wait and see!!!!!!!

    I actually enjoy the park. The positives are definitely it's not really crowded and it has some nice restaurants to eat at which are more affordable for what they offer.

    But I suppose the negatives do outweight the positives. Not enough interesting rides, and honestly the park layout is ridiculous. It feels like it takes FOREVER to make it to paradise pier, and back again to the entrance without it feeling like it took an hour.

    I'd hate to think you don't like Toy Story Mania. How many times have you ridden it?
