  • March 21, 2008: Real Buildings that Inspired Disney-MGM Studios, Part 2

    It's now Disney's Hollywood Studios, but it was Disney-MGM Studios when it opened in 1989.

    Last year, I published Real Buildings that Inspired Disney-MGM Studios, Part 1, comparing five Disney versions to actual Los Angeles area "originals."

    Here's Part 2, with six more buildings.

    Please discuss it here.

    This series is absolutely amazing. I have a new appreciation for these Disney buildings and look forward to seeing them in person again.

    Seeing the Max Factor building's fate as a Mel's Drive-in was a little disturbing.

      I love that DWP building, we have checked it out several times. They are doing some nice restoration work on it now.

        Fabulous and Amazing, the attention to detail here is just incredible.

        I always felt like I was in Hollywood, CA when walking down the streets at DHS, but never quite knew why. It's neat, although a little sad to see the original inspiration for these buildings, and it just helps to make it feel even more "Hollywood-esqe".
