  • [Chat] The Hollywood That Never Was... and Always Will Be

    I've been thinking of the Studios' moniker of "The Hollywood That Never Was... and Always Will Be". What is that moniker supposed to mean? It sounds kinda contradictory, like an oxymoron.
    My top favorite Disneyland attractions:

    1. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
    2. Pirates of the Caribbean
    3. Splash Mountain
    4. Mad Tea Party
    5. Peter Pan's Flight
    6. Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin

    I think it means that the way we imagine old Hollywood is the way it was depicted in movies, not the way it actually was in real life. So that fantasy-Hollywood will be around forever, because fantasies don't change the way real life does. And it's that fantasy-Hollywood that the park is based on.

      ^Excellent description.

      The cynical answer is that it used to be part park part working studio. The latter has slowly evaporated and so we're left with the park element that has moved away from the real world of film production and become a more fanciful setting. Hence the "never was" part.

        What about the "always will be" part?

          That is a very logical and I think correct response. How we imagine it, is not how it is, but to us it always will be the way we imagine.
