  • [Question] Harbor Blvd. entrance question

    What is that supposed to look like once the new addition to the California Adventure park is completed? Will it continue to be a big ol' barricaded area with Parking Lot CMs standing there?

    From an older update from Al, that entrance will be history, most likely covered with shrubs and green mesh fencing.

      Those parking CMs that stand there all day have the easiest job in the park or at least it appears that way.

        If being bored is considered easy.

          The thing about working in the parks (or outside in this case) is that it stinks when it's busy and it really sucks when it's slow. Boredom is almost as bad as being busy. Also, theres much more stupid people than you think. Some people lack common sense.

            Or the ability to read big flashing "Do Not Enter" signs...

              they really need to tear out that ugly marquee and close of most of that entrance. if they need to keep an access road one lane should be sufficient.

              imagine how much more room they could have had to build the backstage buildings closer to the farthest point of their property if that had been done early on. Would have left more room for park expansion like hidden showbuildings.

                Who designed the Harbor entrance bus transportation hub thing? I remember reading in an update a while ago that the architect claimed to have never set foot in a Disney Park, am I getting my facts straight?

                  I've heard the story that a designer of some sort took pride in never having set foot in a Disney park, but I forget who or what that was about.

                    I've heard that said in reference to the designer of the shuttle dropoff area next to the esplanade...I think this thread is about the area where the Toy Story Lot buses enter. It's further south. Could be the same designer, though. And in any case, I don't know whether it's true or not.

                      That would be landscape architect, Martha Schwartz… I like most of her stuff, but there's a reason she's divorced (her attitude).

                        Ya, I agree, she has done some really cool stuff. What happened at Disneyland!?

                          I get where you're coming from on this, but they would still need an access road to get backstage, to and around those new buildings. So if the buildings had been closer to Harbor, there would have been a road in front (west) of them. As it is now, the road is behind them (east).

                          So hopefully in the future when they expand, they can build a show building or other theming almost flush up against them on the west side. And that won't have wasted too much space.

                              Not so much...nowhere to go for a break or potty, not close enough to the backstage area for lunch, clocking etc...its kind of a pain. plus super boring equals a really long shift. I think they rotate them pretty regular thank goodness.
