I'm glad Dinosaur Jack is leaving, but I must admit there's something... *slightly* cool about him. I can't quite pinpoint what it is, and maybe it's that he fit in so well with the original California Adventure (since so much of it was pretty crappy as it was... if that makes sense). But with the new DCA, he doesn't stand a chance.
I looked at it up close and personal last Thursday, and I noticed that the original purplish pink paint was starting to show through the newer green paint.
Of all the times I've been to DCA I have no memory of the dinosaur, I know it was there but I think it was one of those things I just bypassed on my way to somewhere else and took no notice of (or at least ignored).
I wonder when the head or maybe other parkts of the shop go on the auction block.
It was cute and nice theming inside but it served one purpose and that was selling merchandise. The have plenty of shops on the south side and one on the north side so they do not need it. Takes up space and though cute was not needed. Hit the road Jack and don't come back.
Never once have I come accross Yesterland and gone "Wow, I never remember my parents telling me about that!" and I just get the feeling my children will come accross this one day and will probably say that about this one. Bon voyage to the least memorable thing in Disney history. I feel sorry for anybody that took a Disney "keepsake" photograph in front of that store. Obviously NOBODY will miss it.
Kongalush! To all you fellow adventurers out there!
