Gone Jan. 4!
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.

The "California" letters will be removed Jan. 4, 2011.
