  • New Orleans Square - What's So Special About It?

    New Orleans Square is sure popular these days! Why is it so special and why do you like to so much?

    Re: New Orleans Square - What's So Special About It?

    I think New Orleans Square is so popular because it is one the most evocative, warm and romantic areas of the park. It really makes you feel like you are back in "N'awlins", back in the past. It's a very "cozy" place, and it is so rich in detail that it really takes you out of the present and transports you to another place and time. Plus it's got Pirates and Mansion, two of the most popular attractions ever!

      Pirates and Haunted Mansion. Both thought of by the man himself, Walt Disney.

      Both rides are thrilling, fun and have songs that will stand the test of time forever.

      Royal street is fantastic and the area is just so well themed.

      A+ Mr. Disney, thank you.

          Oh goodness.

          If you don't get why New Orleans Square is so wonderful, then as a whole it's hard to see why Disneyland is so special.

          Details, my friend. Details. Theme.

          Not to mention the most timeless attractions in the Disney legacy...

          It's romantic, it's beautiful...it's the last land Walt had a personal touch in.

          What's not so special about it?

          (Not to mention the presence of Jack Sparrow and Jack Skellington...)

          Have you ever gone to the park during the holiday season? Visit New Orleans Square at night...it's beautiful.

            It's absolutely gorgeous--a sense of quiet pervades it, even if you're surrounded by people. It's shady and there are small areas to duck into for a nice quiet seat. Plus the fact that there are a lot of nice shops that are just great to look at. During the holidays, it's even more gorgeous!

            The rides don't hurt either. ;]

              NOS has many beautiful and fun elements that all work together to create a perfect Disneyland atmosphere. It does, in fact, embody everything Disney parks should be, IMO. The great things about NOS are:

              1. Architecture. The buildings are beautiful, detailed, semi-authentic, purposeful, intricate, and thematically consistent. Compare River Belle Terrace, all the buildings around Pirates, and the Haunted Mansion facade--they all have varieties, but they fit within the same beautiful framework.
              2. Trees. So many of them. Lovely shade. They create layers through which you glimpse other areas. The air feels nicer and you don't feel like you're stuck in a concrete jungle. ::cough:: Tomorrowland ::cough::
              3. Quality attractions. Pirates and the Haunted Mansion are two of the most richly themed and best loved original Disney rides, both of which Walt had a hand in. They're big and ambitious, but still thoroughly charming, with some of the best Disney use of animatronics and special effects to date.
              4. Rivers of America. There's something magical about having a woodsy waterway crawling past a land, especially at night.
              5. Entertainment. NOS has got great performers on the "streets" and in the--
              6. --restaurants. Blue Bayou alone is practically enough to elevate NOS above every other locale in Disneyland on the face of the earth.

              I love the other lands, too. But if I had to pick one to spend all day in without being able to ride anything, I'd pick NOS in an instant.

              EDIT: By the way, NOS' popularity isn't a new thing. I've seen it win at least two "Favorite Land" polls on this forum, and it was popular in the recent thread about lands. Actually, NOS hasn't changed all that much in forty years--I mean, the trees have grown, Johnny Depp has taken up residence, the HM attic has changed its OS a few times, Fantasmic! has created evening congestion, and Pirates' lower courtyard was created in the outdoor queue...but fundamentally, NOS hasn't changed. It's still the same place, albeit with improved atmosphere thanks to the wonderful trees' growth.

                  I have loved New Orleans Square for 35+ years (since I was 4 years old). Not exactly sure why, though. Maybe because it housed the mysterious looking House? Had the original POTC that was awesome? What's funny is when I lived in Louisiana for a few years back in the late '80's, and we went to New Orleans, my first reaction of the city was, "This looks just like Disneyland!" These days I have an exceptional fondness for DL's New Orleans Square cuz it brings back so many wonderful memories of my visits to the place it was built after. In a weird way, it feels like home to me.

                  Individuality is a great thing....as long as we think alike.

                    We lived in Lousiana for five years...NOS...the smells wafting from the restaurants!! The food....Blue Bayou...Club 33. Listening to the VooDoo lady! Courtyard of the Angels for pictures. The music. And the holiday decorations are incredible...it is even more magical when decorated for Christmas...the big "over the top" ornaments! The view out over the Rivers of America.

                            I want to go to Disneyland someday. I'm VERY close to New Orleans, and seeing NOS would remind me of home probaly. I'd love to see what its like.

                            Now hang on to them hats n' glasses, cause this here's the wildest ride in the wilderness!

                              The theming and architecture, not to mention the great old-school rides, Pirates and HM. The best restaurants in DL are also in that area.
