Well, now that Disney has announced the plans that Al discussed previously about the Bank location changing from AP Processing to the Disney Gallery, I think it's fair to discuss its real impacts.
The Disney announced news is happening in this thread but I think the discussion of the Bank and Mainstreet deserve their own tangent.
I'm saddened to see another MainStreet element fall to the ax. Yes, while acting as the AP center, it wasn't a bank per say, it did have its identity still and the teller notion still held some resemblance to it's past.
But now we have a full on 'art store' going in. Does anyone see the Bank's identity lasting at all?
Isn't this just another conversion of what used to be unique themed elements of Mainstreet falling to the Disney merchandise homogenizing machine?
Why not instead of building 'The Disney Gallery' why didn't they build a themed period Art store that sold these Disney Classics? Then at least they could be restoring a merchandise element some people want, as well as adding something to Mainstreet for the first time in ages.
I for one am sad to see yet more robbing of the identity that was Main Street USA
