  • A MAJOR DCA slam in today's Hollywood Reporter

    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/...90a8b5a184ffc5


    Rick Munarriz, senior analyst with the Motley Fool, said Animal Kingdom before the improvements was a lot like California Adventure is now: "A half-day park with a full-day price."

    Therefore, Munarriz said, Disney shareholders ought to applaud the move to upgrade California Adventure despite the hefty cost, because the alternative is unacceptable.

    "It's a broken park," he said. "Most companies close down their broken parks. But Disney can't afford that kind of egg on its mouse-face."

      Glad they are spending the money, and looking forward to the new DCA 2.0, or whatever the new name will be in 2011......

        Ditto that, plus the integrity to invest in their future. I applaud the renovation.

          Well they weren't going to turn the land back into a parking lot :P It needed to be a better theme park and patching it wasn't going to be enough for significant growth to the resort and completely renovating it, while somewhat close to tearing the whole thing down and starting over, is cheaper than doing so. Writing an article in 2007 calling DCA a half day park isn't a major slam at it, it's practically a ric romero-ism.

            I wouldn't really say that's a major slam either, Disney's Studios and Animal Kingdom both were half day parks when they opened and for several years after.

                By 2011, it will probably be DCA v2.4

                    DCA's "major slam" was the cold shoulder it has been given by the Disney company since it's opening. Until just recently it was thought best to ignore it and not acknowledge it as a problem. They made it worse because no one wanted to take care of it and nurture it. No one wanted to give it a chance and let it develop. Some may be standing and cheering that they are finally going to put some effort into this so called "Theme Park". I will believe it when I see it. I don't care about flashy concept art... I've seen the concept art for TL98, Light Magic, DCA the first time around, Pooh, Finding Nemo, and Buzz... in all cases the reality was not even close to the project that was promised.

                        I hope the concept art comes true.

                        Because I love DCA, and I only want it to be better.

                          The even bigger slam was the cold shoulder the public gave the park after it opened. Talk about kicking someone when they're down.
