  • Hollywood Blvd. update

    Okay, so it's no billion dollar DCA makeover. But the WDS additions are progressing very nicely...

    Palm trees! Marquees! Lamp posts! All good.

      Looking good, thanks for the link.

      Something that has been in the back of my mind though, how well can palm trees hold up to the Paris weather?

        Some palm trees species can resist very cold temperatures. I guess they uses those particular species. There are already palm trees en Adventureland since 1992. )
        When I first saw the pictures I thought they were fake though...

          (They are fake. Mainly because of the forced perspective.)

          The ones on the Front Lot and in Adventureland are real, though. I suppose they're of that species Olivier speaks of.

            I like the new Tram Tour sign. Armageddon and Rock'n Roll coaster should get same treatment.

              I like it all and (as I keep saying) it's a step in the right direction. However, I can't help but be worried when I look at those photos that a strong gust of wind may be all that is needed to knock the whole thing down.
              WDW - 1987 & 1991
              DLP - 1996, 2004, 2006 & 2007
              DLR - October 2011

                Well what do ya know I just learned something new today. Maybe I can get some palms for my front yard in Boston

                I most have not paid too much attention or forgot there were palms in Adventureland. First time I saw them in DLP was in the pictures when they were installed near the Aladdins flying carpet, and then I assumed they were fakes.

                  I wonder if this Hollywood Blv. will have people walking around in Borat Costumes or Demons or fake rappers like the real one.

                    Photosmagiques.com posted some new pictures of Hollywood Blvd. taken last weekend. There are some close pics of the trees, they look real to me.

                        You know, it's really fun reading your reactions to the Boulevard Placemaking. I've still not seen any of the photos, so I have no real conception of what it all looks like in reality (although I have seen the concept artwork). It all sounds fairly positive, I must say!

                          Well, it's a shame they're not moving tram tour's station to Backlot, I really thought they'd be doing that but obviously not. Oh well, hopefully they'll continue to pleasantly surprise us

                            The last I heard, plans to move the Tram Tour station are still very much a reality, although they are now looking at postponing the move by a few years. The good news is that we can probably expect some extensions and additions before that.

                              True, it's just that tunnel sign seemed so definite
