Hardly an E-Ticket and, once again, we're cheated out of a truly NEW attraction and expansion to the park and treated with another revision/reimagining of another attraction (ie: Nemo, Star Tours, Tom Sawyer's Island). This is why I was so upset that Al said Tomorrowland is getting first dibs for Disneyland. The back side of Frontierland and festival arena is the only TRUE place to physically expand the park and not only increase guest capacity, but alleviate the mind-numbing gridlock in the back corner of the park.
    Don't be so sure. The Stark Expo is not just a rehash of Innoventions.

    Signage has gone up on the facade of the old Man Hat n' Beach. It's now "Boardwalk Bazaar".

    That sure does look nice! Thanks for sharing. The changes to these stores were relatively small and yet make a world of difference in the aesthetics of the area. It does leave me scratching my head though at why they kept, or seem to be keeping, the old signs on the other stores. Overall though, the little retheme of the stores is a very pleasant surprise: new wood paneling, new lighting, new roof lines and the works but only this building gets a signage change and other little embellishments which is nice, as it was the worse (that clown...uhhh...), but yeah. The new name is fun too. Bazaar, for some reason, makes me think of a 1920's "amusement" market at a time when people were very interested in the culture of the Middle East (just after the discovery of King Tut's tomb)

    Paradise Pier sure does love to use alliterations...Boardwalk Bazaar, Midway Mania, Silly Symphony Swings, Goofy's Sky School, Paradise Garden Grille, Boardwalk Pizza & Pasta, Jumpin Jellyfish, and Bayside Brews. Haha just a weird observation. Alliterations are easier to remember and have a fun sound so it's no wonder they use them in this land so often.

    Is the "Man Hat n' Beach" neon sign in the back of the store gone yet?

    I wonder if the decision to not change out the other signs has to do with lighting. That new sign has simple lamps to light it up. The others have the "fancy", carnival blinky lights. If the goal was to make a quick, relatively inexpensive change, then I would think it would be a no-brainer to avoid messing around with a bunch of lighting. And, while it is not a perfect change, I think the whole thing came out pretty nicely.

    Everything in the interior has not been changed. It will not see a refurb. This was purely an aesthetic change for the facades to match the new ones. There is much speculation from myself included that the stores and Maliboomer pad are on WDI's list for expansion hence the "cheap" quick fixes.

    Well it's one plain, one super ornate, one plain, and one somewhat ornate. So it balances it out. We need to see a full pan of the stores to really get a feel. But who know they might change out the signs. It's still good for temp change.

    ^^You weren't kidding! I think tiny glimpse was being generous! Lol thanks Ron! Those cars must have been booking it because you looked over for half a second and looked back only to see the shimmer of their headlights before they disappeared.
