  • Should they change DCA's dedication plaque?

    "To all who believe in the power of dreams... Welcome! Disney's California Adventure opens its golden gates to you. Here we pay tribute to the dreamers of the past... the native people, explorers, immigrants, aviators, entrepreneurs and entertainers who built the Golden State. And we salute a new generation of dreamers who are creating the wonders of tomorrow... from the silver screen to the computer screen... from the fertile farmlands to the far reaches of space. Disney's California Adventure celebrates the richness and diversity of California... it's land, it's people, it's spirit and, above all, the dreams that it continues to inspire."

    It is rumored that the overhaul of DCA will consist of changing it's name and dropping the California theme.

    If these rumors are true, I believe Iger should re-dedicate the theme park and create something a little more approriate to it's new direction and design.
    Would this also be Iger's first dedication speech for a Disney theme park or did he dedicate HKDL?

      My first inclination was to say, change the park to fit the plaque, not the other way around.

        EVERYTHING with Eisner's name on it should be removed.

        Oh, and 7 Dwarfs Building on the Disney Studio Lot ~
        it really shouldn't be named after the Eisner, either.
        Eisner didn't have ANYTHING to do with the success
        that got that building made.

        That empty unused Animation Building at the Studios
        in WDW would be much more appropriate for an Eisner
        Dedication.

          LOL, well, at least add another plaque to go with this one.

            I'm sorry, but I happen to like Indy quite a bit.

            Yeah, I wouldn't mind a re-dedication, provided it was one with better opportunities for themes and attractions--and themed attractions!

                DCA complete retheme sans California? I hope not. The park is really a genius way to let tourists see all of California's major offerings without leaving Anaheim. I mean, it's not really doing that job now, but with some tweaking, it could be a really great marketing ploy. Not to mention something actually worth seeing.
                And I second what 2DieFR said. The plaque is appropriate, the park itself is not the way it is now.
                dreams. come. true.

                  The plaque certainly sounds like a good idea for a theme park...

                    Yes, it should be rededicated.

                    Actually, no, that was the problem in the first place. Most people will tell you that a theme park about California in California is a monumentally stupid idea.

                    The DCA upgrade is going to recreate a bygone era in California history and feature things that don't exist anymore, such as the Carthay Circle Theater and the Red Cars. This whole idea that you can visit DCA instead of visiting California is largely a thing of the past and I doubt anyone involved with the upgrade is thinking anything along those lines.

                      A re-dedication plaque? Never heard of that before.

                        Disney has never built such a terrible theme park before. If the name of the park is changed than Eisner's dedication won't make sense anyway.

                        I hope they order enough of these rededication plaques though. Walt Disney Studios Paris might need one too.

                          Well if the new partners statue for DCA is any indication of whats happening I would think the Eisner dedication is history as soon as they start demo.

                            where are any of these things represented in the park?

                              I wish I had never even heard of Michael Eisner.

                              After the shareholder revolt of 2003, his name should be expunged from every surface.

                                I would change it. It tires too hard to be like Disneyland's. As does the horrible Paris Studios dedication.

                                  Eisner's Ego is loud and clear on that DCA dedication plaque. It needs to go for sure.

                                    The 2nd sentence alone throws the speech out the window...

                                    Possibly no more "Disney's California Adventure" and for certain no more Golden Gate...

                                      You have to take the good with the bad, but you also have to take the bad with the good.

                                      Eisner helped revitalize the company when he came on board and we can't forget that. His career has had some highs and lows.

                                        Disney-MGM Studios is changing its name to Disney's Hollywood Studios, so their plaque won't be exactly correct. Same with Disneyland Paris, whose plaque still calls the park Euro Disneyland.
