Re "Disney to fix a major misstep," Oct. 17
I have never understood the vitriol directed at California Adventure. Sure, classic Disneyland is iconic and may never be topped, but its sister park distinguished itself as a complementary yet separate theme-park experience. The newer park actually seems larger and cleaner. The rides, surely Soarin' Over California and Grizzly River Run, compare favorably to Space Mountain and the Matterhorn; and you only waste half the time waiting in long lines to ride them. But there's a simple reason Disneyland continues to sell more tickets: longer hours. If Disney wants to level the playing field, why not keep the same hours at both parks?
