  • Ironic that none of those structures at the Studio park are inspired from the actual Echo Park neighborhood.

    It really is one of the lovelier areas of the park.

    I love this series! Thanks so much Werner.
    It is so interesting to see where the inspiration for this park came from, but to also see all these details the regular park guest would never even think to notice.
    Next time I go there, I will plan to look at all these buildings and absorb all the detail.

    This is why the Hollywood Section of the DHS park works so well, while the “studio” portion struggle to deliver on theme.

    I can’t help but feel; that more thought was put into Disney-MGM Studios Park then there was for Disney California Adventure … even with the MGM removed, the Disney Hollywood Studio Park deserves the same TLC that DCA received (especially if WDW wants to keep competing with Universal Orlando) …

    Another top notch article from Werner Weiss 🙂
