The Other Park


I took this photo on a gloomy day in June. A far away shot of Disney Calfornia Adventure or DCA right before the horrible ugly looking orange and the mailboomer were demo'd.  It is so great that this park is getting away from the California Theme and back to being about Walt Disney. It is beginning to have the warmth,charm and the Disney theming that Disneyland has. It's about time. I remember reading articles that back when DCA opened that it was rated the worse park in America.

Goodbye Orange ! Hello Mickey!

Although, I can not go for a swing, I do enjoy sitting on a bench and listening to the music and thunder and watching the lightening clonds flicker. 

So, long Mailboomer. Though I could never ride you because, I suffer from motion sickness. I did appreciate your beauty. The Crape Myrtles were in full bloom when I snapped this photo.

I took this picture of the top of Carthay Theater. The attention to detail is awesome. I just love this building and all of Buena Vista. Gone is all the awful California tourist theming and that ugly Sun Icon. I have to admit though, I do miss the Golden Gate bridge and the mural made of tiles.

A quick photo of Carthay all lit up and just breath taking. Now this is what I am talking about " Old Hollywood". Buena Vista is fast becoming another one of my favorite photo spots.
The real Carthay Theater was demolished in 1969 replaced by buildings and a park. What a shame. I am so happy that there is this replica to enjoy.
