    This is a terrible idea for California Adventure! The park is supposed to celebrate California! This would be much suited for disney WORLD. Here at DCA, there are so many out of state visitors who maybe don’t have the time to drive down to San Diego (even though we are only 2 hours away, 1:45 if you speed) or drive up the 101, go to wine country, or visit San Fransisco. Soaring over California is the perfect alternative! I am so disappointed that they would remove a California themed ride from a California themed park. I never really liked DCA to begin with (RIP to the monorail “find your car in the parking lot game”) but this just makes me dislike it even more.
