The Devil's In The Details...
For every Disney Geek or Fan in Southern California, if you've had a chance to visit DCA lately...
you've gotten a real treat.
Getting to see the construction of "Toy Story Midway Mania" is a wonderful hobby for architectural and Disneyana fans. Walking down to Paradise Pier and staring at the building coming to life is like watching Steve Austin get bionic legs. Too old a metaphor for some of you? Well, just imagine all the detail that was missing when DCA opened...
Now imagine the opposite.
All the stucco and exposed beams compounding the lack of theming when the gates opened are in direct contrast to what is happening beneath California Screamin' right now. The detail is simply of another quality compared to what Paul Pressler's vision of the park was supposed to be. The shingles, the clap board, the ornate woodwork are all a startling break with the past.
By next summer when TSMM opens everything between the Maliboomer to the Carousel will give guest an idea of what the Makeover will bring to the rest of this park. If you have a chance to go to the Resort and decide to take walk down to the construction area, take a deep drink of what is happening to the Disneyland Resort's Second Gate...
It's becoming Disney.
And it's only the beginning...

The building looks beautiful. More and more details keep getting added! I can't wait until its done.
Wait till you see the entire pier at the end of 2009... it will be stunning.
