Really enjoyed your coverage of the DCA updates. The item I found particularly interesting was the discussion of choosing a “Castle” for the centerpiece of Buena Vista Street. I couldn’t help but think about the same discussions that must have happened during the design of Disney MGM Studios when Grauman’s Chinese Theater was chosen and beautifully executed. Sadly, though, we still have a cartoon hat hiding what was intended to enhance the storyline in Florida when guests entered the park. The hat would look great on the hillside to the right, just outside the park entrance – I would bet there are Imagineers that would agree……
The Chinese Theater was definitely intended as the “weenie” of the park. It’s been passed around that licensing issues are to blame for the hat covering it up. Whether that’s true or not, there are definitely Imagineers who have publicly said they’d like to see the hat removed.
