  • Is this the End of "Golden Dreams"?

    Well, I'm guessing that the Little Mermaid ride and Grotto are moving into where Golden Dreams Theater lies and the proposed new theater which was going to house Golden Dreams in Sunshine Plaza will be instead filled in with with the Carathay theater featuring The Walt Disney Story. So does that mean that this is the end of Golden Dreams?

    Sounds like it.

    Hopefully Disney will place it on a DVD for those fans of the film.

    Just don't expect me to buy a copy!

          Damn, Whoopie just doesn't belong in the park, first Superstar Limo, now Golden Dreams. Im just waiting for Rosie O' Donnel to get out of the park, lol.

            Fun fact: when Disney completed the film they didn't bother to make copy's of the original and thus the film used in the park is the only golden dreams in existence. also the projection room is equipped with a protective case that covers film reels when the fire alarm is activated.

              Whoopie is one thing that I sure won't miss from the refurb.

              Now, if we can just get her off of the Tram at USH...

                It was fine for most of it, but durring the montage at the end I was thinking just show Walt Disney and be over with it.

                  I think Disney was trying to avoid him while creating DCA in the 90's. It sure seems like it.

                      Golden dreams has run its course. I will miss the building. Has a nice look for that area.

                          And it's also the last time you'll see Golden Screams as well.

                          If you're happy to see that God-forsaken piece of garbage go, then gimme a "HELL YEAH!"

                            People always ridiculed/hated this movie, and frankly, I don't blame them. While I personally thought the movie was great, I really think it suffered from its location and appearance. Here you have the Palace of Fine Arts building, which is a beautiful building, but instead of a dark ride inside, you have a show. Now, with California Screamin' and other large attractions looming in the distance, who is going to stop and watch the show, especially trying to sell everyone on the fact that Whoopi Goldberg hosts the show!

                            Golden Dreams should have taken a page out of Main Street's design, and devoted a theater for the movie ala Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln or The First 50 Magical Years w/ Steve Martin.

                            I'm not saying it would have packed in the show with guests, but I would anticipate it possibly getting more traffic than its current location. It would also be a nice segue into the park, offering a glimpse of what California culture is comprised of. Naturally, this would have required a strong conjunction with thematic principles in the rest of the park's attractions. I just don't think this can be accomplished anymore with Little Mermaid and Cars going in. I'm not cynical about these additions, but wish more planning went into the placement of Golden Dreams.

                              Golden Screams sucked.

                              However Golden Dreams was the only Epcot style edutainment Anaheim really ever got.

                              I liked it. It could go on DVD and be teachers' instructional material though.

                                You may not always see her, but just remember, where ever you go, Queen Califia will be lookin' out for you.

                                  Unfortunately, as long as they sell "Jack Sparrow Dreadz" at the resort, we will always be reminded of Whoopi. Just be glad they don't adorn the resort of that poster of Whoopi in the bathtub filled with milk!

                                    One dream
                                    We come from everywhere with just one dream
                                    This home is where we all can share in just one dream


                                    One day
                                    I still believe if we can see the possibilities
                                    The world can be a better place


                                    So many miracles are happening around us every day
                                    Look to the mountaintop, not the mountain in your way


                                    Side by side, heart to heart
                                    We can finish anything we start
                                    Anything can be done
                                    With just one dream


                                    Sometimes
                                    The hardest thing to do in life is try to understand
                                    The reason why we have to cry


                                    One friend
                                    You know that's all it takes is just one friend to lend a hand
                                    A helping hand, that's all it takes


                                    So many people miss the miracle of what it is to care
                                    Love is what brings us all together, anyway

                                    Side by side, heart to heart
                                    We can finish anything we start
                                    Anything can be done
                                    With just one dream

                                    Hand in hand, we can do
                                    What it takes to make our dreams come true
                                    Each of us, if we trust
                                    In just one dream

                                    We are the wings
                                    We can fly into forever
                                    Like a promise of the sun
                                    We're born to shine

                                    We have the strength
                                    We can change the world together
                                    Build a stairway to the stars we can climb

                                    Side by side, heart to heart
                                    We can finish anything we start
                                    Anything can be done
                                    With just one dream

                                    Hand in hand, we can do
                                    What it takes to make our dreams come true
                                    Each of us, if we trust, in just one dream

                                    In just one dream
