    I hope this wasn't just to pull the wool over Anaheim's eyes once again.

    But, will what they deliver bear any creative or quality relationship to many of the earlier projects they shelved? If they fail to follow through with poor concepts, I wouldn't be as dissapointed as I would if they shelved a great kick *** concept (not that any that they have announced appear to fall into that catagory).

    I'm sure they'll deliver the grand entrance by the time they said (2011 or 2012). They made too much of a grand announcement to go back on it now.

    And if not... we can at least count on a beautiful new Paradise Pier right?

    Interesting point...

    Once again I go back my original thought that Disney has already committed this to the public through the press release, so they are in a position where they could potentially receive a huge amount of bad publicity should they not deliver.

    At the beginning of this post it was also my fear that when things get good, they will pull back on the revamp because they see high numbers and feel it isn't needed.

    This is yet another FALSE start on the DCA re-do. I'm tired of the promises with no results. I don't think WDI and DL will EVER figure out how to fix DCA

    Two words. Disney Decade.
    Disney has announced plenty that has not gone through. Remember, everything is subject to change.

    The western portal, as I will be calling it, since I suggested it first, is about the same size as DCA's bottleneck under the shrunken golden gate bridge near the entrance. Maybe a little smaller.
    It is also outside the security tents, so that might be a bit of a logistic issue.
    I figure this entrance is used for large equipment, so I don't know if having turnstiles in the way here will be an issue, or if the current entrance could be used as the large-equipment entrance while construction is going on.
    So, combine the hotel entrances with the western portal, and that should work fine.
    Not sure how or where an entrance through the WWTBAM building would work.
    On second thought, I'll share the credit with sediment and klinksalot. We're all pretty brilliant, aren't we?

    They're afraid of Clark Griswold.

    OK But sediment's idea was just a 'second thought' mine was a 'first thought.' Sir klinksalot's thought was a 'first thought' thought second.

    But even sediment admits his idea was just a 'second thought', which doesn't count! :lol:

    I don't see how moving the enterence a dozen yards to the left is going to deter people? Will there still be a large enterence to accomodate visitors? Yes, it'll just dump them out in the backlot instead of Sunshine Plaza and they'll have to walk another 30 to 50 feet further to get to Midway Mania.

    Forgive me, but isn't there a HUGE gate to near Soarin' that they have used. I know that's generally reserved for Ambulances, Fire-Trucks, etc, but why not have 2 entrances?

    Wow, what a great idea!
    I wish I would have thought of it.

    Larger crowds also pose larger problems. This would be more people to work around. More people to to get confused about the temporary entrance. More people looking for offerings that may be [temporarily] closed.


    Closing the park would be a huge loss. Money would have to be spent to retrain Cast Members. Toy Story Midway Mania would be wasted in getting built. Disney would then have to re-staff the park for re-opening.

    That's good point. I think perhaps they want to keep it out of Downtown Disney to keep security in the same spot and not crowd DD.

    I'll personally use the Grand Californian entrance more where possible.
