    Buena Vista Street is one of my new favorite places in the entire resort. Aside from having a Starbucks it has a real sense of place and wonderful places to perch and people watch. Great place.

    It looks amazing!!

    It looks great. The plaza evokes The Grove. I love the gas station. Why no interior shots of Elias and Company?

  • Walt Fan

    I can’t believe there is no Radiator Springs coverage in todays Dateline!?! BVS looks nice though.

    I’m relieved that there actually is a grade difference between the level of the sidewalks and the street and curb in major parts of Buena Vista. I previously assumed incorrectly that the entire street was like the portion around Oswald’s and the nearby town square. Why the planners chose to place the “gas station” and center landscaped plaza on the same grade with the street is a puzzle to me. The visual imprint of a “curb” ruins part of the illusion. So that was done so crowds of people streaming around there, particularly around closing time, would be less likely to trip and fall?

    But that’s a small quibble when the new entryway is light years better than the original setting.

    OMG that’s my name plastered over the new restrooms on BVS. I’m geeking out. Who needs a brick in the esplanade when you’ve got a building in DCA?! Personally epic.

    Fantastic pictures of Buena Vista Street and Carsland. I can’t wait to experience it all in person. Did you get any shots of the general view of BVS at night?

    I really do not like this new format for articles so far though…. It was so much simpler before and not so busy at the top of the page.

    Is it just me….or am I getting old?
    I don’t want to rain on the parade but I find the music in the Newsies video to be completely out of theme. They spend so much time and money to create a very nice looking 30s themed street and then miss the point by adding a live show with old tunes performed to a modern heavy dance beat. Do they feel that their audience is incapable of appreciating music from the correct period?

    Thank you for this article.

    I think the car in front of Oswald’s is a 1937 Packard Business Coupe.
