    no lands

    lands belong in Disneyland

    other gates can have other divisions

    it's bad enough that DCA has "A Bug's Land"

      JSPIDER - Hollywoodland is what the real Hollywood sign used to read when it was errected by land developers........if that makes you feel any better.

Backlots are BORING...sound stages (IE like the Hyperion) are BORING and I for one do not want this to mimic the real deal...it should be over stylized and fun. Real = blank building.
        No, I was thinking of 1930s Hollywood when ladies and gentlemen dressed up like a million bucks, Producers were more important than CEOs, and art-deco buildings like the kind the ToT was inspired by was in-season.

        Think of the Gene Kelly days here.

          I was just at DCA for a full day, and the Hollywood Pictures Backlot is cramped and stressful. I also was put off by the "Soundstage" numbers on most of the buildings. It was trying so hard, but I think Disney dropped the ball with this theme. I agree that something to the extent of what has been mentioned above should be in order.
          Disney should recreate a Hollywood of the movies, which is fantasy, but Disney and WDI are great at those sorts of things.

            I suppose but I'm still not a big fan of it


            I dunno retro hollywood sounds alright but in reality I don't see anything wrong with doing a Disney style modern hollywood, Universal "kinda" does it but it's done so poorly Disney could easily do things both different and better

            also as far as the time travel goes how will it make since?

            Haunted things are supposed to be old and abandond so the Tower has to be many years older then the buildings around it (you wouldn't find an ultra modern skyscraper today abandond and haunted this quickly *unless you did a dumb backstory of it being built on an indian graveyard or somethin :B*)

              That's the beauty of going for 1950s Hollywood. The Deco style of ToT is very 20s/early 30s, so the hotel could have operated for years, had its tragic events unfold, and have been abandoned long enough to account for the kind of decay we see.

              Nothing is inherently wrong with doing modern Hollywood. But Hollywood already does that just an hour away. HPB isn't just competing against Universal, it's competing against other working studios like Paramount and Warner Bros. which offer tours.

              Modern might work if it were more Authentic, and more Disney. But what kind of modern Authentic Disney experiences can they create, and what kind of shelf life will they have?

              If you want different and better, I think the logical choice is to create an experiential, immersive history experience like Disneyland's west side. That's the kind of "time travel" Disney made its mark with, and HPB is ripe for that level of Disney magic.
