California Adventure has gotten an INSANE boost from Cars Land.
And why is it so amazing?
Because they [B][I]committed[/I][/B] to that place. People were ready to quit over having the budget slashed… and in the end, it wasn’t. And DCA ended up with the most amazing, immersive, detailed area I have ever seen. [B][I]Because they were allowed to do it right. [/I][/B] They didn’t cut corners, they didn’t settle for good enough or “people won’t really care about the little things”. And it is paying off for DL/DCA.
If WDW were going to go into a project like Cars Land, they would have to commit to a serious budget. Going in with thoughts of “how can we do this cheaper/what can we slash?” is going to result in the kind of failure that DL experienced when they did a cheap version of WDW’s Pooh ride- only this would be failure on far grander, more expensive scale.
I would love to see them do something else… but with the kind of love, dedication, commitment, and budget that was put into the Cars Land project. And if they choose to do Cars Land- I really hope they do it right.
