WTF?! Where on earth did that 'keep off the grass' sign come from? Seriously, it looks like a runner up in a 10-and-under design-a-sign for Disneyland competition.

I'm guessing the Quality Control people regularly leave Paris with fancier clothes than they arrived in.
Here is the original quote, from Kristof over at DLRP Magic: "This [the upcoming banner pole decorations] is another creation by wanna-be Imagineers. DLRP Entertainment should stick to what they do best: shows, parades, characters, ENTERTAINMENT. Leave decorations to people who are trained and experienced to do so: Imagineers. Take a look at Belle's Christmas Village (designed by EDLI [Euro Disneyland Imagineering]) and compare it to most of the Halloween decorations... (Remember the Pink Witches decorations last year??)
And those beautiful Fab 5-shaped pumpkins at Disney Village, those are sculpted on property by the department at DLRP that designs and custom builds all the Disney figures for the shop windows. The difference in quality is HUGE."
It explains so very much, doesn't it? The question is why these people are still allowed to do so much more than teach Donald Duck how to do jazz hands and why the local Imagineering department's obvious talents are so tragically underused. Perhaps the latter has a tougher union, haha.
I'm no expert, but from the looks of it it's again not the Imagineers who are having a field day with "Mickey's Magical Party."
