As you may or may not know, the Disney Village entertainment district is set to undergo some radical changes in the next few years, with the introduction of a number of new venues, along with an extensive beautification project.
Things have already got off to a good start with the opening of the Gaumont IMAX cinema (and for those of you who haven't seen it yet, it's a thing of beauty!) but there is plenty more in store.
First of all, the Disney Village will be getting a whole new look. The industrial, claustrophobic feel of the place has been seen to be a problem for far too long, so most of the giant metal pylons that line the central street will be removed, creating a lot more space. This means the "starry sky" effect will also have to go, but this will be replaced by strings of large coloured lanterns closer to ground level. (A lot like Downtown Disney's Westside.)
Once these changes have been made, the ground will be re-paved in warmer colours, and a series of flowerbeds will be introduced to add a little greenery to proceedings.
There are plenty more changes to come after that, but I'll have to save those for my next post.
So what do you all think? Do you welcome these changes? Are they long overdue, or do you like the Village the way it is? Let's get a discussion going, people! I don't think I've seen a single Disney Village thread on this site yet.
