Disneyland Resort (DL, DLR, DCA) Discussion Thread

p. 393 - Pixar Place Hotel transformation will be completed on January 30th, 2024!

Recommended Posts

Would they be able to move the mural to a pre-built place, though? Because the wall that the mosaic rests on is very curved, so they can't really put it on a flat wall, I believe they need one with the same dimensions in order for it to actually work somewhere else.

I think its totally possible to put it on a flat wall. Yes, the support structure is curved, however, im pretty sure the tile is not.

^There's another wall poster that says that there's a "lush" park coming in 2011

 

Also, I went to DCA yesterday, and besides pretty much everything being blocked off by construction walls, there was also another *slight* disappointment: World of Color.

 

Don't get me wrong, I'm just being nitpicky, plus, I still LOVE WoC. However, all day, the stage was up at its maintenance level...and it just looks really dirty and ugly, definitely not something a Disney park should just have in plain sight. They really need to fix that stage. Plus, when I saw WoC, I was in the Red Section, which really sucks. You can barely see any of the projections, and a lot of the action gets blocked by superfluous fountains. On top of that, a decent amount of the fountains weren't quite working, especially the one at the opening where it's the only fountain going off. Also, the inflatable projection screens never went up during the show, so IDK what happened to that effect. However, even without those, the show is still amazing. Plus, I don't really care that those things weren't working since they really didn't enhance the show or anything. It's just really stupid to see Disney spend x amount of money on something and have it not work.

 

Maliboomer destruction update for those lame enough to care: All of the ride vehicles are gone already, some just have their frame remaining. It'll be interesting to see how they pull of its destruction.

World of Color having issues? Never would have guessed. DL's entertainment department (whatever department Steve Davidson heads...forget the name) shouldn't be allowed to touch anything. They'll find a way to mess it up. I feel bad for the front line people forced to deal with their bad decisions.

Aww. It sucks that they have effects in the show that just aren't working. Usually, it's the little things that really make me enjoy a show. Especially with World of Color. Like the inflatable projection screens you mentioned. All those small details add a little more depth to the show. Let's hope they can get all this small stuff working again.

 

By the way, how crowded has the line been for Fastpasses, now that the peak summer season is over? Is it still really long, or has it settled down?

Well they're the ones that did Remember, Dreams Come True (the fireworks from 2005-early 2010) and I must say, those were the best fireworks I've ever seen, by far.

 

World of Color needed some time to break in. Sure, some of the stuff doesn't work flawlessly, but then again, what does the first time around? This up and coming off season they will tweaking the show and taking the stuff out that didn't work and maybe adding to the stuff that did. Heck they even have a programming trailer out there right now which means they are doing something.

 

And I'm not really sure if I'd call it a bad decision either. From Disney's standpoint it's been a huge success with all of the people staying in the park until closing as well as bringing more people into the second gate. If I was Disney and World of Color was a "bad decision" then I'd make it all over again.

The thing is though, it's not just breaking in anymore...it worked all summer, and now it didn't work.

 

And as for Show Passes, we went into DCA at 10, and the line for them was like 5 minutes. Although we got the Red section, which I'm assuming is the last section to be assigned as it's the worst. But I'm not confident on that. Not sure how long they were giving out passes, but you're not really going to have to wait in a horrendous line for them anymore.

^^It definitely wasn't a bad decision to add the show. It just seems like the design principle was "lets make the show awesome...feasibility and practicality be damned! I'm not the one who is going to have to figure out how the hell to keep this poorly engineered show running year round up to three times a night!" At some point, something is going to have to give.

^^I don't think that it's a matter of if those magic orb things worked or not, perhaps they just decided not to use them anymore? You are right, they did work all summer but now that we're in a slight off season mode right now they might be tinkering with the show.

 

Or the magical orbs just got destroyed by the disgusting brown water! Not sure what's up with that...

 

^You took the words right out of Steve Davidson's mouth! But you're probably right in the sense that his department is more concerned on how to make a good show without worrying too much about the technicalities. There's probably another department for that, who knows! I just hope that whatever is wrong with the show on a technical standpoint is fixable so that they can get it up and running to the standard they want. I'm rooting for Disney on this one.

The projection domes will be back in operation in a few weeks. There was a stress issue that is being dealt with and should perminantly fix the problem.

 

And as far as the show being too technically complicated... it's actually not. All they did was use 1200 INDIVIDUAL fountains working totally independently of each other. If one fountain fails, the rest still work. It's actually very simple and effective. The only complicated thing is the three tabels for the fountains, which could have possibly been designed better, but they do work. And the center one will be fixed.

^Wait... Where are you getting all of this info? I'm not saying you're wrong or anything I'm just curious. Are you a cast member?

 

That's actually pretty cool that it's being fixed. I'm glad to hear that? Any word on why the bay is so gross and brown though?

 

No, I am not a Cast Member, however, I do have a source that is very very involved with the show and pretty much everything is run through him.

 

As for the bay, it is being worked on. I read on another site that there was an issue with the filtration system. It is apparently now fixed and working properly, however, thats a lot of water to cycle through and clean. As well, they cant just dump a ton of chemicals into the water to clean it overnight cause that water ends up on your faces and the water has to be safe to swim in for the divers. And I do not know how long it will be before the water is back to normal, but I hope its soon.
