  • Necessary Closing?

    In order for DCA to complete the new Plaza, which looks awesome by the way, will they have to close down DCA for a few months to get the main things in place? then open it back up again and wall-off the areas needed to be worked on?

    or will they just leave it open "we are open during construction. pardon our dust" kinda thing?

    just wondering.

      They should close DCA all together until it is ALL done. It wouldn't be worth it to close most of the sections off and some rides open.

        DCA will remain open during the entire refurb period.

        As mentioned above, they will build a temporary entrance while they work on the main entrance area.

        But everything else will just be refurb walls in certain locations.

          It's gonna be weird in a couple years when people are getting all nostalgic on the boards about the original California Adventure.

              Remember Golden Dreams? That used to be a very good show, especially the giant statues of Whoopi. Let's start a petition to bring Golden Dreams back!

                Not me. Only the DoMs are.

                We'll still be complaining about the upgraded park though, that's a given.

                  I am so all over the idea of closing the park during renovations. If the game plan is 5 years to get it done, why not close it , remove all of us guest start kickin butt to get it done in 2 1/2years also economical its kind of a wash- yes disney loses the revenue for 2 1/2 year, but as cost of labor, materials etc rise over a 5 year period they will rise less in 2 1/2 years. Of course its a negative image shutting something down , but put the preview center in the esplanade, throw in some teasers like ride vehicles as they become avaliable,some pre openning for purchase souvineers, and they will have the masses at the gates for openning day, weeks, months , the first year may have to be by lotto or Priority entrance only !

                    It will be just like when they were redoing Tomorrowland for 1998, except this story stands a chance at having a happy ending.

                      You can't close MY theme park.

                      Where will I go for my Halloween sweets from Candy Corn Acres?

                      How will I visit my drama classmates from East High's production of "High School Musical 2 - School's Out?"

                      Where will I get my free tortilla during the annual celebration of my birth?

                      How will I enjoy a place that takes out the theme in "theme park?"

                      You can't close MY theme park.

                            I'm wondering where they'll put vital services (Guest Relations, stroller & wheelchair rental, etc.) that are in the main entry plaza currently while they're re-do-ing it? I can see a lot of people who are average-level mad about all the construction becoming FURIOUS once they find out the thing under construction first is the place you'd go to voice your complaint.

                              I think Guest Services should be hidden behind the Maliboomer, as far away from the Main Entrance as possible.

                              We should have to work hard to have our complaints heard.

                              It could be marketed as another tour, "Disney's Hide -n- Seek," where a Guest will have to search for vital services (restrooms, Guest Relations, Central First Aid, stroller/wheelchair rentals) with an old map of the Hundred Acre Parking Lot.

                                They should take out ALL the restrooms to make more room for attractions, shows, parades, restaurants, and.......................... GIFT SHOPS!!!

                                  Strollers are easy, just set up a tent. They have done it before.

                                  As for Guest Relations, they can move that to Guest Services next to the Disneyland Entrance for things like Club 33 reservations (aka outside the gates).

                                  Or even better, who says the turnstiles have to be at the "emergency gate", they can placed them inside the area, and then place a tent on the east end of the current building housing Lost and Found, and then the CM's can still access the building from the current employee entrance. This way it is outside of the turnstiles, so folks can access it without "entering" the park thru the turnstiles.

                                      You know when you misread something. I thought the title was Necessary Clothing? My first thought was, yes clothing is necessary at Disneyland. Then I thought, maybe you were wondering what type of clothing to bring during a certain time of year for the weather. Then I started reading the thread, it had nothing to do with clothing.
