California Adventure to Remove Oversized "California" Letters at Entrance

Better take all those photos you've ever wanted with the oversized letters standing at the entrance to Disney's California Adventure while you can.

In a further effort to rev up and change the park into, well, something even more likeable, Disney has decided to remove the giant statues spelling out "California" for the time being--but don't worry, they assure us that they're being put into storage for (perhaps) future use.

The new entrance will be taking its inspiration from the Pan-Pacific Auditorium, a landmark structure that once stood in the Fairfax District of Los Angeles. The auditorium met its untimely fate when it was destroyed by a fire in 1989.

You'll remember that California Adventure has kicked off a makeover to resemble the California Walt Disney saw when he first arrived in the 1920s.
