The existing structure is kind of boring, and from the way that they're building the structure on the Little Mermaid ride right now, it's looking like it'll turn out looking like a cardboard box. Barf.

    That being said, I do agree that it looks amazing!
    First, Disney never uses "plans"; they just throw up a boring cardboard box, and then ask passersby what they think of the creation; sometimes they cut holes in the walls for you to yell your ideas directly to the artisans working on site. You can also drop off blueprints, architectural renderings, and design sketches at City Hall for consideration.

    Second, we here on MiceChat never look at "Concept Art" - or the finished project - before passing judgement; we usually just wait until the walls go up (or demolition to begin...) and start armchair imagineering, deriding the design, and post a poll as to what we - or Walt - would really want. Barfing is always a good start to any serious discussion of esthetics or theming...

    Third, "lashing out" is really just another way of venting frustration.

    That concep art looks like something you'd see at Tokyo DisneySea. Here's hoping it turns out just like that! It's gorgeous.

    Oh wow that will be beautiful! I can't wait!
    All this has happened before, and it will all happen again. But this time it happened in London. It happened on a quiet street in Bloomsbury. That corner house over there is the home of the Darling family. And Peter Pan chose this particular house because there were people here who believed in him.

    Can you imagine after every WOC show, everyone will be making a beeline for this thing just like people do for POTC or HM after a Fantasmic show?

    It's just great to finally see DCA coming into its own.

    So excited for this! I've always loved Ariel, so it's awesome that she's getting her own ride. Not to mention that the building seems like it will be gorgeous.

    Seriously, guys? Clearly I shouldn't use my "dry" sense of humor on these boards ever..ever..ever..ever..again. It obviously doesn't come across very well. But I was under the impression that these boards weren't to just rail on each other for anything that you might think is stupid. I'm starting to think that micechat is not as fun as it used to be...seems every thread has to turn into a personal attack. I already tried to explain myself and I said it would look good, what more do you want?
