    Couldn't agree more! Was starting to feel like a true Disney park with quality and charm. HOWEVER, sometimes we have to realize that we might be the minority. Kids today are into trendy, and trendy means $$$. As a business you can't blame Disney. It's cheap to overlay existing rides, gets more crowds in the park (which means more $$$) and is free advertisement. As sad as I am that all rides will be IP based and that CA will never again have a full park theme, at least the ride experiences are still fun. We can't deny that the guardians experience is better than TOT was. The theme isn't but the ride is.
    I do miss rides like Big thunder, Space mountain etc, they drew more to the imagination.
    I just wish we could have a mix like Disney Sea seems to get.

    inside out, is more loud than fun....

    CA adventure has a couple really great attractions
    some very nice shopping and good food variety
    a nice series of shows and events...
    Turtle talk with crush is fun... we loved Aladdin

    used to be we only entered CA when the lines at Disney were too long... or, for a couple attractions then back to Disneyland
    now, we spend more time there

    (isn't it time to refurbish Tow Mater?)

    I love Monsters Inc, if only Ariel had the same immersive environment....
    RSR, TSM... Soaring (though, preferred soaring over CA, flying into towers and birds seems gimmicky, something Soaring over CA surpassed)

    Bugs land, was charming... but the Disney side, still offers more attractions

    maybe in years to come there will be more of the quality of Monsters, TSM and RSR

    I'm not a boomer, but by this logic would you like a majority of Disneyland to be replaced? I mean, Mickey Mouse is an IP that even predates boomers so he should have been gone a long time ago We could turn both parks basically into only 1990s-and-later IPs.

    With things like Pixar Pier being a slap dash version of Toy Story Land from WDW, adding Avengers stuff... I feel like they may as well rename DCA to Disney Hollywood Studios West or something.

    I have passes and we only end up going to DCA once out of every 5 visits. It’s not that there isn’t anything that we want to do, there’s just so much to do at Disneyland and it’s always so crowded we end up taking the entire day. I think most people feel this way and want to experience Disneyland first and treat DCA as the second day experience.

    Well, it’s really just the west coast version of DHS.

    While I also loved the concept of the California when Walt arrived, unfortunately people under appreciate the art that was included. That said I love the GotG ride, and can understand that Pixar pier is what kids can comprehend, not a time that is almost 100 years before they were born. I guess I view it as enter the park like how Walt started, (and please keep it that way), but that from there go off into lands of imagination and Storytelling that Walt Disney embodied.

    They are playing music from Pixar films, such as "Touch the Sky" from Brave, and "Down to Earth" from Wall--E, and finally, You've got a friend in me." Those are all I really hear.

    yes, you are correct. Pixar Pier honestly reminds me of a DCA 1.0 style fix. I like to call present DCA, DCA 1.5

    Oddly enough, Disney had a kid magazine in the 90s-00 called Disney Adventures.

    I remember when DCA meant Don't Come Again.

    Meanwhile I love DCA.

    HATED the park when it first opened..,still did nothing for me during the 2.0 transition...now thoroughly enjoy what it has become and is becoming just as much as Disneyland Park.

    To each their own.
