Something I feel strongly about, and I am not sure many others do really.
Do you feel the left side of the park (entering on Main Street, i.e., Adventureland, NoS, Criitter, Frontierland) is stronger visually and thematically than the right (Fantasyland, Tomorrowland) as a whole? I do. Fantasyland's inner courtyard is nice, and the Matterhorn, but once you get past Alice in Wonderland it kind of thematically falls apart, I feel, visually. There is no strong visual connector or sense of being somewhere else, and once you're in the rather barren Tomorrowland, looking back at the Matterhorn and the sub lagoon doesn't make much sense.
As for the west side, the argument can be made certain things are also out of place, but overall the visual landscape is much stronger, from the jungles of Adventureland giving way to the city of NoS, then out into the backwoods and Frontierland from a southern town, which kind of melts into the wilderness beyond Big Thunder. It somewhat makes sense, visually, or works to stand at Big Thunder and see out across the river and island, to a southern plantation mansion standing in the trees, for me, due to the overarching sense of the American frontier and the towns that inhabited it in history. The transition between Adventureland and NoS is a bit more troublesome, but it seems to work with the rather non-descript Pirates building bordering the jungle on that edge, and the wrought-iron Victorian touches starting on the other side of the building to some extent.
Opposed to this, Fantasyland and it's quaint European village with the tall Matterhorn looming over it seems to have nothing to do with the broad, concrete expanses of Tomorrowland next door. Not a very good meld, overall, though the Matterhorn kind of forces Fantasyland to be a good neighbor, visually, due it's strength as a visual icon. That being said, however, it really has nothing to do with Tomorrowland either..it works, temporarily, in the context of seeing it, but that's due more to the magic of Disneyland I think than any real cohesive design elements the two share. What are your thoughts? Is the left side of the park more cohesive and visually strong, or is it just as bad as the visual and thematic jumble of the Fantasyland/Tomorrowland border? Discuss.
