  • Tower of Terror Location

    Hi, I was wandering, where exactly will ToT be place in the park?

    Diagram would be useful, I'm not too familiar with the Studio's.

    TOT is expected to go right in the centre of the park, indicated by the red circle on the photo below.

          Wow, sure looks a lot nicer from the air then DisneyWorld. I'm blown away by how large the park is. I must visit.

                I hate to have to correct you, Olivier, but the main section of the queue for the Parisian Tower will be exactly the same as California Adventure's - outside!
                And as for ni_teach's comment on a weird layout - I couldn't agree more. However, the next expansion phase should see a new boulevard being driven right through the centre of the park, starting at the Tower, and out beyond the Tram Tour station. This will end in a new hub. Construction is hoped to start in 2007!

                  Soundtracker you're probably right and I know that Paris ToT will be a Anaheim clone, but don't you think the Imagineers will change at least the queing line to fit Paris weather ? (as they did for most of the other rides). I just can't imagine people waiting in an outdoor queing line for hours at Christmas time for example (when it can get very cold)...
                  (ni_teach, sorry I thought you were talking about Disneyland Paris park layout... )

                    Sadly, there'll be no change (and I've seen the plans, tee hee!) If you think about it, a lot of the other attractions have large outdoor queue areas - they're just much cheaper to build, and that was the driving force behind the park, sadly.
                    But did you know, that Euro Disney's CEO didn't like the Tower's original location, and commisioned the Imagineers to investigate the possibility of placing it outside the current park boundaries? He wanted to place it on the current CM car park. You can see it at the very top of the photo posted by Ian P.

                      Yes, this location (behind the current Studio Tram Tour station) was much discussed. I think they thought of a "Hollywood Bld" leading to ToT... If they ever build such a boulevard (which I doubt), it will be much shorter now...

                            what do you reckon the themeing of the tower will be? Shouldn't it be kinda art-deco to try to fit with the animation building and the disney channel studio?

                            I can't really see how they could make the "old-falling-appart-hotel" story works when everything around looks different and new. It will look like stuck up in the middle of the park without any connection with it.

                            what do you think?

                              I think there's too much space between the buildings in WDS so there is no unity. So it won't be a problem to fitt a ToT in. The RnRC building is not in the same style too, and it doesn't bother. At least not me...

                                The Tower will be an exact copy of the one in California, so, yes it will be art deco. Actually, the architecture in WDS Frontlot is in exactly the same style, so the Tower should act as a nice continuation of the style, right into the centre of the park.

                                A fair point, and one which has been the cause of a lot of debate on the French forums. What exactly is an abandoned 1930's Hollywood hotel doing in the centre of a modern European studio?
                                But don't forget that a themed boulevard will eventually be built as an extension to the park. It will start at the foot of the Tower and extend outwards beyond the current site of the Studio Tram Tour Station. Eventually, this will have the same effect as Sunset Blvd. in WDW, the big difference being that the Tower will mark the START of the boulevard, rather than the end of it.

                                  This is the smallest (Disney)park I have ever seen. There are indeed many dead ends and it really does have a bad design. And for those of you who want to rush to see it-don't! That park has so many low walls you can see right outside of it. The ground is mostly asphault and the buildings are mostly stucko. What's really bad is that it sits right next to the most elaborately designed theme park in the world which makes it look REALLY bare on top of the fact that it already is.

                                  Sorry Walt Disney Studios Paris, I love your name, but your features are butt ugly.:o

                                    Ah OK. Thanks for the clarification I guess I believed that the DCA Tower was more of an "Spanish-hacienda" type :o

                                    Anyway, that's probably off-topic, but building this new boulevard would cut the tram route, with the london set on one side and the canyon catastrope on the other... Or did I miss something ?
