I have not had time to read the blog so it may all be explained there. The idea is the Partners statue in DL shows Walt in a business suit. This represents the time after he became a well established businessman. The DCA Partners statue shows Walt in more casual dress with a suitcase much as he looked when he arrived in LA. Mickey has a suitcase too. I thought it was brilliant for what the Buena Vista street theme and placemaking they are building.

The BV presentation showed photos of it and they called it a pump house. The fountain is done and so is the pump house.

They also mentioned how the CC Theater and matching pumphouse will change existing sight lines so one can no longer see PP or the Wharf from the circle. they referred to it as the "portal" to PP and the Wharf.

Along those lines will they try to interrupt the views into Condor Flats? There has been a lot of talk since they covered the radar sign and then didn't retheme it.

How about into Hollywood, though the buildings are more cohesive, anychange seen on that street?

No mention of Condor Flats. I remember something about Hollywood but I think the clash is minimal going from Carthay Circle Theater into Hollywood land.

I'd guess Radiator Springs from Cars works because the Cadillac Range as a back drop is the perfect way to block views out of the park.
ummm... Bugs Land is themed after A Bug's Life?!?!

I read the description of the logic and "story" behind the statue, but I still really don't care for it.

I love the Partners statue. I think it's subtle and the concept is elegant. I don't think DCA *needs* a statue, I guess, but if so, I would have left out Jazz Hands Mickey. What was elegant about the first statue seems ham-fisted with this one. We get it...Mickey and Walt. It may have worked better for me if they had gone with an earlier version of the Mickey, maybe?

Not trying to start a debate really, I just saw it and had a pretty strong negative reaction.

I know it's an old thread, but wanted to keep the information on what's happening in DCA together.


Blog post about the interiors of Buena Vista Streets new stores.

The whole idea of the rennovation and BVS is starting to grow on me a bit. I'm not really thrilled that there seem to be several places that look like DHS, but it does seem that BVS is really unique and that helps.

I think the reason they chose Cars Land is that it really does fit with the car image of California and the whole Route 66 concept. Yes, Route 66 is far more than California and many of the sights are really Arizona/Nevada reminders, but it is really more the car culture of California that makes Cars Land a good fit for DCA. As the PP stated, it also fits in with the concept of Bugs Land, which is the neighbor for Cars Land.

Nation Pie day gives a taste of dessert coming to Flo's V8 Cafe.

Quote:
Even better news ahead, fellow pie fans: the new Flo’s V-8 Café in Cars Land, set to debut this summer at Disney California Adventure park, already has four pies on the menu: Dutch apple-cheddar, strawberry rhubarb, Mississippi Mud and blueberry. My first order will be the rich Mississippi Mud.
