    The Disney Gallery to Open this Fall with Haunted Mansion 40th Anniversary Theme

    Here is some new info on the gallery:

    Bank On It! The Disney Gallery set to open this Fall in the former Bank of Main Street Building!
    Like most, you've probably missed visiting The Disney Gallery on your recent trips to Disneyland® park. Well, good news! the hotspot for viewing original and one-of-a-kind Disney artwork and artifacts is ready to re-open in the fall at its new location - in the former Bank of Main Street, right next to the Disneyland® Opera House.
    This new location offers roughly the same amount of area as the gallery's previous home above the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction (which is now occupied by the Disneyland® Dream Suite). And, just as before, The Disney Gallery will be made up of three separate rooms - two exhibit rooms and a gift shop. "This will allow us to tell on continuous story, or three separate stories, as we used to in the former gallery," said Kim Irvine, Walt Disney Imagineering and Art Director for this project. She also told us that the unique qualities of the building have been incorporated into the gallery's theme: "We'll maintain the bank look and architecture and visually tell the story that this was an old bank that has been turned into an art gallery. Guests will still see remnants of the old bank influence - like the vault!" So be sure to stop in and visit this longtime favorite attraction and store in its new digs.

    And here is some of the artwork set for the Haunted Mansion 40th Anniversary:

    Those who have wanted to see Main Street "modernized," perhaps to the 1950s in order for it to remain (blech) "relevant," seem to be getting your wish. No longer will the Bank be an operating, authentic Main Street institution; it will be an "old bank," a relic; something that "urban renewal" will have changed into something else.

    Sad, sad, sad...

    I dont why people care so much for a band that was just an AP center for the last couple of years, they are making it into an attraction making better use of the space while keeping it a Bank.
    PS I cant wait fro the Gallery to be back

    Better the Gallery than the AP center; better a bank than the Gallery.
