I have to say, when I first heard that DCA was getting a makeover I was pretty upset. You see I am a proud Californian and I took it personal! I loved DCA the way it was. But man I am so grateful for the transformation! Carsland is so cool. I need more time to really take it in Can't wait to ride Luigi's. The other two rides were so much fun. Can't wait to ride RSR at night. Walking down BVS reminds me of my grandmother. In the 30's she was a servant for a family in the ritzy area of LA, maybe Hancock Park? Anywhoo, I remember her talking about the days of dressing up to go "uptown" and "downtown" and fancy department stores with restaurants inside. Window shopping and Sunday strolls. I wish she was well enough to take to BVS, I think she would really enjoy the walk down memory lane. :-). I only went in one store, i cant wait to explore more next time. But what I saw was amazing. On another note, I didn't see any street people like the lady in the bike, cop, etc, like I saw in pics during the opening. Are they still around? All in all DCA seems like a full park now. Thank you Imagineers and all that approved the calculated risks to get this done!
My mom worked in Hancock park in the 60s-70s so I know the ritzy glamour. They still roam around, not always but I've seen them plenty of times to know they are still around. I love BVS and sit on those benches and LOVE to hear people's wows and amazement! - MarshaMouse   4073.5 #24 8-9-12 10:08AM Like(2)  Reply
I agree, I was like why are they changing it? It's great just as is. Wow, what a transformation! It looks great, love it! I do miss the splash area where mater's jamboree is though. It has been so hot and that was a great place to cool off. ✨ - IBelieveInFairies   557.0 #317 8-9-12 9:13AM Like(1)  Reply

New DCA kicks old DCAs butt! 😜I love the new feel of the park. It still needs a few upgrades (like muppets) but I like that I can spend the whole day in DCA without feeling like I missed something by not going to DL. - SueBayou   2019.4 #60 8-9-12 10:37AM Like(1)  Reply
I know. On Sat we did not hit DL till like 7 pm. I would of liked to stay in DCA but we had a friend with us that wanted to go to DL. I really wanted to see the neon! - PrincessDuckie  735.4 #218 8-9-12 11:09AM

Im glad DCA got remolded, I never liked the old DCA, the park was in desperate need of a remodel. I was so glad when I heard about the expansion. - CduckettC   8.8 #10241 8-9-12 11:38AM Like(1)  Reply
What a wonderful memory. I have yet to see the new upgrade but I can't wait. - PrincessLeia   293.8 #853 8-9-12 9:12AM Like  Reply

In Japan, many department stores have a whole floor (or sometimes 2) of just food, restaurants, and dessert shops. It's quite amazing and delicious! - emilyeem   171.9 #2241 8-9-12 10:44AM Like  Reply
Sounds like Shirokiya at Ala Moana Shopping Center in Honolulu, HI. I love that store! - SUUZinOCretiredPLAID  1031.8 #148 8-9-12 10:58AM
I was so sad about the remodeling as well but it turned out much better than the old DCA. - BrerRabbit   347.1 #606 8-9-12 11:22AM Like  Reply
I am so thankful they put so much effort and resources into making DCA what it is. I (a native as well) used to hate having to go to DCA before. I still have Beach Boy nightmares 😱 - fabian777   275.6 #988 8-9-12 1:33PM Like  Reply
