Screamin’ Hosts new Paradise Pier sign

dcaparadisepier

The latest sign of expansion and “re-Imagineering” in California Adventure park is the new illuminated “Paradise Pier” sign on the “California Screamin'” roller coaster. After the famous Mickey Ears were completely removed the sign was onstalled overnight between Thursday and Friday, March 12 and 13. The sign reflects the “vintage Disney” themeing that is part of the California Adventure makeover.

A LaughingPlace.com reader sent in a photo of the sign lit up at night. Night or Day I really like the way the new Pier zone is taking shape. All part of the second gate’s quest to earn the right to be called a ‘Disney’ park.

The sign was designed in the style of beachfront amusement park signs from the 1920s and ’30s, the era when Walt Disney first arrived in Hollywood and begin producing animated cartoons. As the “re-Imagineering” continues at California Adventure this spring, the ferris wheel attraction will reopen as “Mickey’s Fun Wheel” and the Games of the Boardwalk will reopen in completely new versions featuring Disney characters.

    I have to say that I’m disappointed … one of my favorite views of this part of the park was the giant Mickey ears on this roller coaster. Not that the new look is bad, but I really REALLY loved the old look.
