  • [Fun] Most Unthemed Location at the Disneyland Resort

    There are many unthemed places in the Disneyland Resort. Tell me what you think is the most unthemed area.




    ***Please don't turn this into a rant thread!!!***






    And no, PLEASE DO NOT SAY CALIFORNIA ADVENTURE/DCA


    If you feel one location is unthemed, tell me.


    Also do not post an entire land, that is not informing.

      I'll start. I feel the exit queue to Star Tours is very unthemed. Come on, gray walls with pictures of some of the places in Star Wars.

          The wall of the Buzz Lightyear Astro Blaster building that faces the Matterhorn. And the top of the Tomorrowland Terrace, where the 20K under the sea mural used to be during the 50th. Those bug me the most.

              The Tram loading zones. Not only are they ugly, but totally inadequate most of the time.

              And also the security-check area's. Blech.

                  I want to clarify what "unthemed" means. I don't believe that Walt wanted to create "themes." He wanted to create experiences through themes. Each "land" was to give a complete illusion of a certain place and time. So if I go by that idea, we have many "unthemed" areas.


                  I believe that Downtown Disney is missing a theme, an immersive illusion of being in a certain place and time. While DD is pleasant, and slightly more appealing the most malls, it could have had the Disney "touch" to really take it beyond where it is. If DD was divided into different sections, each giving the guest the feeling of particular exotic place, it would be a much better experience.

                    California Screamin's queue is the absolute worst "themed" area in the whole resort!

                      That would only be true if you were on the 'face forward' train.....unless your company at the time needed 'theming' :lol:

                      The Tram Loading Zone's are ok - they are loading zones.....but I think they need some cleaning up....and there needs to be predetermined line for strollers and such.....so often I see people in the back 'car' that take up the stroller area and it's terribly rude.....when they can sit anywhere....they take up stroller/wheelchair room.....

                      As for the security check area.....they've gotten better, but I agree.....it needs something.

                        I would agree with the Star Tours exit, it's pretty bland..also up there is more or less the back queue of the Haunted Mansion, with the switchbacks...there is the Mansion, of course, and the planters and ivy hill...it's not bad, just nothing spectacular.

                          There are many areas that are not themed at all. How can you have the most of nothing? This question doesn't really make sense. I mean you could argue that the parking garage is the most convincing recreation of an early 21st century parking strucure, so it's the best themed, and the castle is way too small and sits at the end of an american street, so it's poorly themed.
                          The Mickey audience is not made up of people; it has no racial, national, political, religious or social differences or affiliations; the Mickey audience is made up of parts of people, of that deathless, precious, ageless, absolutely primitive remnant of something in every world-wracked human being which makes us play with children’s toys and laugh without self-consciousness at silly things, and sing in bathtubs, and dream and believe that our babies are uniquely beautiful. You know…the Mickey in us.

                              The restrooms in Toon Town.


                              Yes, the exterior is themed... but once you go inside it's normal human restrooms again! That's pretty disappointing. I wanted some nicely designed urinals and toilets that talk to ya. Sinks that go "don't forget to wash!"
