I know an awful lot has been said on the subject of how to expand the Walt Disney Studios park, but what of its other main short fall? I'm talking, of course, about the lack of theme and atmosphere. If you were put in charge of the park for just one month, how would you go about injecting a bit of warmth and character into the place? There are a few ground rules that I want to set out before we begin...
1) I am NOT talking about new attractions or expansions. I figure there are enough threads out there on this subject already, and as we now have a number of new rides on the cards this is no longer the top priority. The changes I'm talking about should be aesthetic - fountains, statues, flower beds, façades, music, props, posters, etc.
2) Any proposals should be REALISTIC. We all know that the park is operating on a restricted budget, so any ideas you have should be easy to impliment and readily achievable. So no proposals to tear down the Studio 1 building and replace it with a full scale replica of Sunset Blvd.
3) This last point is less of a rule and more of a recommendation. If at all possible, I'd like to see some ORIGINAL ideas that would be unique to the park, and not just cloned from Disney/MGM in Orlando. They should also fit in with the resort's remit to cater to a European audience.
So there you have it. We're nearly all amateur Imagineers here, so let's get those creative juices flowing. The person with the best overall plan for the park gets a free croissant! Bon courage à toutes et à tous!
