Will the Golden Gate Bridge Be Next?

Never before in the history of Disneyland, or any other Disney built theme park for that matter, has there been a massive remodeling of one of the parks like what is going on now at Disney California Adventure. It is unprecedented.

This beautiful piece of art by Imagineering's sadly departed Tim Delaney shows a Disney's California Adventure that will soon be part of the past. Very quickly, actually! The C-A-L-I-F-O-R-N-I-A letters are gone and replaced by a Pan Pacific themed entrance gate; the awful Sun Icon and the mall-like area surrounding it will give way to Buena Vista Street; the mistake known as Paradise Pier may up ending being the nicest area in the park when completed. (Just add Ariel's Undersea Adventure and lots of water via World of Color. Mix well!); and the new Pixar inspired Cars Land will create an instant draw for everyone who will want to ride Radiator Springs Racers.

Clearly, a new day is coming- and the loss of the Golden Gate Bridge is soon the next icon of the "old and cheap" to give way!
