The Greedy Theme Park Fan's Wish List for Improving Disney California Adventure
After last week's Greedy Theme Park Fan's Wish List for Improving Disneyland
, I promised you a similar list for Disney California Adventure. Yesterday in the Orange County Register, I delivered with Improving Disney California Adventure
Let's start by noting how much Disney has done already to improve this once-maligned park, spending a billion dollars to add new lands, rethemed old ones, and to build some world-class rides and attractions. Radiator Springs Racers and World of Color rank among the best Disney attractions in the world, according to our readers. (Or, at least, World of Color did before its recent Diamond Celebration version. It's still great — just not as great as it was before.)
But greedy theme park fans are, well, greedy. We are always wanting more, especially when companies keep doing great work in other parks. So in that spirit, I offered another half dozen suggestions for improvements at Disney California Adventure, ranging from the easy (the return of the flatbreads at Boardwalk Pizza & Pasta) to the quite a bit more ambitious. (Let's trade A Bug's Land for Mystic Manor!)
It's all intended to spark a fun discussion, so I hope you'll take a look, then tell us what you would like to see happen next at Disney California Adventure.

I agree with a few of them. Yes, they need the bears in the rapids ride. I don't quite know if it should be the Country Bears, but if this is possible, they need to add a sound track to the ride and add some show scenes. It'll be a Splash Mountain sequel.
It's a good list, and I have a couple more...
I'm halfway with you on this list. I definitely agree that the over-the-shoulder restraints on Screamin' take away from the experience. My wife and I love to visit the Santa Cruz boardwalk when we head up north. She's not quite as enthusiastic as I am about the jerky Giant Dipper, but it's certainly much, much more enjoyable because it's not constrained by bulky over-the-shoulder restraints.
Rob...Cars land fits at DCA because its ROUTE 66.
I agree with most of this, but with one exception...instead of bringing the Country Bears back, why not take inspiration from Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars at Hong Kong Disneyland? An encounter with wild bears fits the high-speed adventure of Grizzly River Run much better than the friendly singing bears of Country Bear Jamboree (perhaps those bears could be put to use in a new show built inside the lower mountain). Other than that, I'd love to see everything on this list happen, and I also like Rob's idea of bringing Monsters, Inc. Ride and Go Seek to DCA.
1 - Get the Tower of Terror to do the random drop sequence, just like Orlando´s version. I know this might not be possible due to the ride`s mechanism being diferent, but it would greatly improve the experience.
