      Id never heard "French Fry" rocks till recently. We always called them "Space Rocks"

        Good riddance! This should've been Project Starfart priority #1, not in the epilogue that is the now-realized failure of Galaxy's Edge.

        Now, I'll miss the curb. Unlike DCA, it has purpose.

            But I thought current management would spend a time on guest satisfaction.

            Great news indeed!

              I'll always remember the one New Year's Eve I worked as a line CM, my first year - crawling up to the top of the tallest rock and lowering down the kids that had climbed up and got stuck, serenaded by the countdown "3...2...1...Happy New Year!" and fireworks being my only illumination, surrounded by a sea of crazed crowds.

              I vowed never to work a New Year's Eve at Disneyland again...and I never did.

              Toss me the keys to the first bulldozer, I'll do it myself.

                French Fry Rocks really have taken away ,what I hope for Future.........
                and they just took much space.......
                .and was just in the way.
                They have made that area of Main Street U.S.A. - to Ugly!
                Imo

                    What a way to bring in a new year, sorry that happened. Those congestive rocks should've been taken out a long time ago! I'll drive the 2nd bulldozer

                          I'm just happy that despite the failure of GE they still decided to move forward with this part of Project Starfart!

                            When is it supposed to start? I got a sledge hammer when do we start? i'll believe this when I see it.

                              Awesome! I would love to see this area opened back up again but would also really like to see Disney move the Astro Orbiter/Jets back up where they used to be to free up even more space. D23 is just around the corner.. a man can dream.
                              First of all, the name's not "Zippy"! As a matter of fact, I don't believe I've ever met another bot named Zippy, so one can only assume that you came up with "Zippy" in reference to my speed, which may be technically accurate, but lacks a certain creativity!

                                This will be be great for congestion in the area!

                                I am so hoping for a Tomorrowland renaissance in the near future. Maintaining and enhancing the lands that make Disneyland feel like the happiest place on earth...

                                  Amen! However, I'm not holding out high hopes for Tomorrowland next. Even if the concept art does wow us, look how much got slashed for GE, which you know is more anticipated -- or at least hyped -- than a new TL.

                                    First the rocks... next the rocket jets! (I can only hope)

                                      Does anyone from the budget cuts/panic mode/guest unfriendly/lack of artistic acumen/greedy business first school of Disneyland Management want to try to explain WHY Disneyland is spending money on removing these rocks while the sky is falling around them?

                                        So odd it has taken them this long to do it. Maaaaaaybe this is a good segue into a TL redo but I won't have crazy thoughts until they announce a TL redo officially someday LOL
