    Glad they finally brought the Gallery back. I personally like it better when it was above POTC.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the Gallery. The touches of the bank that remain are very tasteful. I look forward to seeing how this space develops. Thanks Matt for sharing your pics!

    I was elated and underwhelmed at the same time upon my visit.

    They are great pictures! Has anyone ever seen a painting of from the view of Main Street looking toward the castle?

    Did anyone who has been there notice if they have the Shag frames back in stock? They are black with bats all around them? REALLY cool with the new HM prints. I may call DelivEARS tomorrow, just in case they aren't still there next week when I get to DL.

    Agreed. Yesterday, I walked into the vault. For some reason I was compelled to touch the walls, which are in fact solid concrete. And then I was reminded that this was in fact at one time an actual functioning bank vault.

    Then I looked at the artwork displayed in there, and that is when my heart sank. On display was the shag painting of the Haunted Mansion. It is a nice painting. But it is the Haunted Mansion at WDW.

    To lend a feeling of authenticity to the bank vault, maybe they should put more valuable paintings relating to DISNEYLAND in there. I'm not necessarily talking about original works of Disney art, but put something in there that relates directly to Disneyland and would therefore have more value than some random painting pointing towards another park. If it was a Shag painting of DL's HM, that would have been better.

    But that is easily fixed. Hopefully someone reads this and corrects it.

    Very nice pictures! I still miss it being in its old location, but I look forward to wandering through it the next time I'm there!

    If we were talking about a real old bank building being turned into a dinner club, bar or art gallery out here in the real world, I might think it's quaint.

    But you walk into Main Street, turn back the clock, and move it back to 2009 again as soon as you step inside the new gallery.

    The theme is destroyed, the time and setting reverts to here and now, and the place loses the charm it conveyed in New Orleans Square.

    And that vault is so cool to walk into. For 55 years it was behind the counter and you couldn't get near it. Now you can wander right into a 100 year old bank vault to see valuable artwork! How cool is that?!

    Thanks a bunch for the shots!

    Can anyone get a close up of the Ward Kimball Train art? I just want to take a look at it--I think my time being the only person to have illustrated the locomotive has finally come to end.

    I kinda like that they kept one of the bank teller windows

    I wish they could have kept the bank, kept AP processing there
    and moved the Gallery to where AP processing is now (Plaza Pavillions ?)


    oh, and thanks for taking the pic.
    Won't be there until Nov or Dec
    so nice to see it now
