  • When shall Placemaking start?

    We've heard words, more words about Placemaking in DCA. But we have seen No action. When will Placemaking finally start?

    What exactly does placemaking mean in terms of DCA?

      It could be debated that the Muppets/Monsters Inc. area of HPB has already been "placemaked."

      As for the rest of it, I was under the impression that the decision was made to go ahead with Midway Mania instead of placemaking, for the time being at least, because it's more likely to bring in more guests.

            Wasn't Midway Mania actually the first step of placemaking? BTW as far as I understand it "placemaking" pretty much means strengthening some of the themes of the park by various means (and thereby eliminating some other themes) in order to make richer "lands" comparable to the "lands" at DL. According to Al Lutz they've also been testing some ideas for new animal AAs in GRR to help bring about the new stronger "national park" theme that will incorporate both the Grizzly Peak and Condor Flats areas. Just an example of the placemaking movement.

              I hope you are joking.

              Midway Mania is being totally constructed from scratch and in a month's time, all of the Midway Games will be completely closed for renovation throughout the summer months. No action my foot!

                  I'd say starting in PP is about right. It propably requires the most attention. I wish they'd do the entrance area next...I despise the big hubcap and that whole area.

                    I ment other then the Midway Mania attraction. There hasn't really been real theme changing in other areas of the park.

                      I think that the whole entrance should be a cross between the CONTEMPORARY HOTEL Lobby in Florida and the Stage 1 at Disney Studios in Paris.

                      Keep the monorail running through the entrance building but maybe make the facades and interior elements always changing, so they can bring in props from the latest Disney movie, or do holiday makeovers in there, to set the stage.

                      Might be more exciting than an 1920s train station with no trains.
