  • [Question] Anyone know what that big stage thing is behind BTR?

    I've noticed a huge stage-looking thing behind Big Thunder Ranch. It's fenced off, so seemingly its a backstage deal that's used by CMs. I've been meaning to inquire about it but I always forget. Anyone know what it is? Was it part of the Hunchback of Notre Dame thing that was going on in the '90s? Has it always been blocked off as it now is? I've been curious about this.

    Yes. It's the Festival Arena. I believe it is now used for private events.

      Yep, it was the area where Festival of Fools was performed, back when Disneyland's entertainment was at it's prime.

        Interesting. Has it always been there and Disney simply fenced it off? Or was it moved back there after the show ended?

        I wonder if all those decorations are still on it or if it's just the stage framework.

          The decorations are loooong gone. It's just the barest of framework now.

          But I don't want to go among MAD people!

            Good morning, son
            In twenty years from now
            Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
            And I can tell you 'bout today
            And how I picked you up and everything changed
            It was pain
            Sunny days and rain
            I knew you'd feel the same things...

              Its backstory was carefully crafted by the Men in Black. It's actually a VIP alien landing pad used by the elite of the solar system. Due to camouflage restrictions they are only allowed to take off/land during the fireworks... allowing them to mask their presence.

              The memories of Festival of Fools have been inserted into the minds of unknowing Guests via mass "flash mobs" of MIB using the neuralizers. Members of the Disney company are aware of the area's top secret use and rent out the area to various "alien owned" corporations.
