Something about walking into California just doesn't feel the same without the letters I gotta say I really miss them.... Any of you guys?

I don't miss them at all. The park is much more tasteful now, and it begins to show that when you first walk up. - MousekaNinja  422.4 #525 10:58PM
Hey I love that you spoke out and said your view! The new look does have a new sophistication and therefore kind of class to it... Awesome point! - somedaymyprincewillcome16  229.3 #1615 3:17AM
I think they were neat, but I love the ever changing landscapes at DLR. Also, I used to get major panic attacks watching parents perch their little ones up high on the letters. Yikes! - iwantdisney  275.1 #1111 10:53PM
This is so true hosting a adorable little girl dressed as Minnie to the top of the L I saw one day... I couldn't leave till they got her down! Of course that was frightening too as the super tall father used his other older daughter on his shoulders to get her on and off! It was like I was glued in place but shock and fear and hardly believing a family was working to accomplish this! I couldn't stop watching thank goodness little Minnie got down safe... But good gracious where were any of those "parental instincts" when they came up with that frightening idea... Tower of terror felt like nothing after that to start off the day :P - somedaymyprincewillcome16  229.3 #1615 3:24AM
I loved them! Especially at Halloween! - Picklez  29.8 #6006 11:25PM
I miss them too!! - Superspacemountainfan  92.1 #3711 12:29AM
I'm with u, I miss the letters πŸ˜” - CinderellE-79  1025.4 #180 9:08AM
Miss them too! I was pretty bummed the first time I came back and they were gone, loved getting my picture with the L - lohofosho  785.0 #235 10:51PM
I would miss it more if there was an "M" in the letters. - LaTruce  2352.9 #65 11:01PM
Yea but Califormia sounds weird - sleepyhead_CM  596.5 #341 11:09PM
Given my name is Jillian I feel your pain on that :/ - somedaymyprincewillcome16  229.3 #1615 3:13AM
Dang it CaliforJia doesnt sound any better either... Darn it! ;) - somedaymyprincewillcome16  229.3 #1615 3:15AM
I was thinking maybe Malifornia? or how about Camifornia - LaTruce  2352.9 #65 10:51AM
I miss the overlays on them too. It was do fun around the holidays! - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.0 #32 11:14PM
I loved the candy corn A's - Picklez  29.8 #6006 11:28PM
I loved them as candy canes too :)! - somedaymyprincewillcome16  229.3 #1615 3:12AM
Good riddance! It was mean to the people with weird names(Keith) ;D - SpiritOfAdventure  1044.8 #176 11:31PM
Given my name is Jillian I feel your pain on that :/ - somedaymyprincewillcome16  229.3 #1615 3:12AM
I actually think both outside entrances are under-whelming (except DP at Halloween) However, obviously done deliberately. As the inside of both parks are so creative. - RapunzelledColey  138.0 #2918 11:39PM
I have always wondered about that... They really could make it a more magical entrance just in that security check before the turnstiles part of DL for sure... It's already kind of sad having to think we need security going to the happiest place on earth (I know we need it of course but just the thought anyone would dare harm anything or anyone in our beloved parks is such a sad thought!) and it could make even waiting to get into the park so much more exciting then it already is if they made it even a little more Disney magicafied ;) - somedaymyprincewillcome16  229.3 #1615 3:11AM
They are here in Sacramento at the California State Fair. I read something about they are having financial problems getting them placed on the property. - 2BeignetOrNot2Beignet  1422.2 #121 11:44PM
No way! I had no idea! I'm so happy that the letters still remain making some place beautiful... Now I kinda want to go see them there :P - somedaymyprincewillcome16  229.3 #1615 3:05AM
I miss them but I really like the Pan-Pacific Auditorium entrance. It so sets the stage for BVS! They have done such a marvelous job with that whole park!!!!! - Boundin  712.2 #272 12:10AM
That is an excellent point! So true, it really is beautiful I have to agree! - somedaymyprincewillcome16  229.3 #1615 3:04AM
Yeah I liked seeing those letters - spideymickey  188.6 #2140 3:12AM
Like the new look. The letters wouldn't fit in with the new Art Deco look. Maybe if they made it look like the Hollywood sign. - santeemouselover  370.0 #617 6:47AM
I'm with ya.... I really enjoyed the letters too! - DLandFanatic  8.6 #12153 7:07AM
I miss the letters but am so glad they changed it up. I love the new look. - Pollyanna702  231.8 #1586 7:37AM
I don't miss them--the new entrance with BVS in the background is a more meaningful theme, and it all looks more refined! I found the letters kinda tacky, lol, but I know they were fun for many people. :) - Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #331 8:52AM
I agree! - Gia  802.0 #231 10:16AM
Here here! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ - Duchess_SMK  6340.7 #18 10:54AM
My minis loved the letters! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 8:56AM
I like both. I liked the original version, gives off the California beach theme most people associate with California. It lacked a bit of potential though. I love the new look, ties perfectly Main Street where Walt grew up to the California dream that became Disney. - aprilinjune4  483.5 #438 11:08AM
I do miss the Golden Gate Bridge, but I love Buena Vista Street so much and the letters wouldn't fit as well with the new theming. - bcarter  220.8 #1722 11:40AM
I mainly miss them because I never got to take a pic with any of the characters esp. A for my name. Oh well. - iamdugsmaster  878.7 #208 10:52PM
Me too! Lol *sigh* - mini_MINNIE  1164.7 #153 5:34AM
I enjoy the new entrance. The California letters can still be enjoyed at the California State Fair Grounds. Disney was very generous in donating them to the state - Tealtownfan  1015.6 #184 6:39AM
Nice to know - E-Ticket  1466.9 #116 6:41AM
It didn't have an M so I really didn't care that much for them lol, I adore the new look. Wouldn't go back for anything - MarshaMouse  5036.0 #26 6:41AM
