    Question Is Hollywood has a Walk of Fame...

    So I was always wondering why Hollywood Backlot didnt have a Disney version of the Walk of Fame. I would understand the newer version not having it, because of the time period it takes place im predating many films, but if they did have one, which characters do you think would/should be on it? Perhaps it's not characters at all, but the imagineers who built the park. Thoughts?

    The original concept for Hollywood Pictures Backlot was that it resemble a working studio backlot, and not an actual Hollywood street (a concept that never really took off). As such, an atually walk of fame would have been out of place.

    For the new theme, such a thing might actually work, but I'm sure the theming police will note that it's supposed to be a 1930's-1940's era Hollywood street, and that the Walk of Fame did not exist until 1958.

    Sgt. DIP here, reporting for duty sir.

    The Hollywood of the 1920s - 1940s was a glamorous place that didn't need the gimmick of the Walk of Fame to attract tourists to come visit. By the 1960s and definitely by the 1970s Hollywood degraded into a dump not even fit for a street walker. The glamor of Hollywood represented in DCA Brings back the days when Hollywood truly was a glamorous place, pre-1950s.

    I would hope the "Hollywood Walk of Fame" concept stays away. The real walk of fame has turned into a rather garish exhibition of self promotion. Celebrities nominate themselves to a committee and once approved, buy their "star" for thousands of dollars. That is why many of the Walk of Fame promotions are tied to films and studios - it's all about marketing. The whole thing seems kind of unseemly.

    I'm not against the concept per se, but I don't think it's necessary. It doesn't fit in with the new story, as DIP noted earlier.

    Oh, and just to rumors don't get started, there never were, nor are there currently, plans for a WOF.

    Uh, it was that way from the beginning. And I hate to point out the obvious but Hollywood of any era was an exhibition of self-promotion.

    Why build a fake version of something that is so close?

    Well that logic negates the entire land don't you think??? I did say a Disney version, however.

    There you go, what a concept, why build a replica of a California Hollywood when California Hollywood is so close.
    Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.
