    I missed out on DCA 1.0 but looking back via videos and photos I thin the one thing I would have liked to have tried was Maliboomer.

              If I'm thinking of the same music, I believe what you're thinking of is actually the theme to The Right Stuff, written by Bill Conti.

                Hahaha I actually meant the theme of the area outside, as in design themes. But yes, the BGM loop featured The Right Stuff, the Last Starfighter, Air Force One, Midway, 1941, Apollo 13, SpaceCamp, The Rocketeer and many other aviation related movie scores that were definitely fantastic to hear outside!

                  I can't believe I forgot all the other themes! I have most of them on CD somewhere in my movie soundtrack collection, so I should have remembered.

                  I did like the design theme you talked about, but I haven't seen the new theme, so I can't really comment. I should see it in a couple of weeks.

                    I miss the tortilla place. It was always interesting to watch them being made and even better, you got a free one on the way out.

                    This will sound sort of odd but if you like industrial machinery as much as I do.....lol. I always liked the diesel powered irrigation pump. If I remember, the engine was a Caterpillar D343, I've worked on tons of those but they usually drive electrical generators. Kinda nice to see an 'old buddy' in the park.

                    I haven't been back since the Muppets disappeared but I'd miss that one a lot. It was one of my favorite things in all of DCA.

                    I really miss the fact that a lot of rides there were basically walk-ons.

                      Yes! And the music loop inside of Taste Pilots Grill. Lot's of pop songs with aviation/space motifs: Space Oddity, Rocket Man, Leaving on a Jet Plane, Fly Like an Eagle, etc.

                        I miss the Maliboomer, but understand that it, and probably the Orange Stinger, too, were both dispensed of because they would have been distracting during World of Color, and Disney needed something like the World of Color to actually get guests into that park. Silly Symphony Swings is much less distracting than a huge orange placed in the background.

                        I really miss having something like Who Wants to be a Millionaire Play It in the park. I still liked the show when the attraction was put in, even though Yesterland wants people to think that the attraction was put In at a time when nobody was watching the show anymore, and going into the building to see a very authentic looking duplicate of the gameshow set was really cool. Giving guests the opportunity to be the one in the hot seat was also very nice.

                        I miss the large assortment of different restaurants that were available at the start. For a while, before the second version of the park was fully open, the eateries in California Adventure seemed to drop from many to almost nil. I'll be honest, I'll never pay seven plus dollars for a plain hot dog at Award Weiners, which somehow stands the test of time while everything else in that park closes.

                        Seasons of the Vine was very relaxing, but even more relaxing was the empty park. Don't get me wrong, though, the park is still a lot more relaxing than Disneyland is, most likely because it was built with large crowds in mind. Of course, in fifty years, we'll see if it seems like California Adventure can handle crowds, just because there will be so many more people by then.

                        Also, really miss the music.

                          I always liked the wave fountain in Sunshine plaza and of course the tortillas.
