    Not as extreme as the Westcot massive spaceship earth thing, but its a good compliment to Sleepy Beauty's Castle (Its Sleeping Beauty right??? I can never remember).
    its actually quite interesting but the angles from which those photos where taken are completely different.

    The original photo was taken from the main entrance corridor, looks like it is just east of the old information booth and would have been the view you would see after you pass the golden state bridge

    The second photo is taken several hundred steps west of that approximately where the entrance of Condor flats is.

    It would be interesting if someone found a picture of the sunshine plaza taken from Condor flats entrance. The view would be of a barren concrete parade route with some concrete planters and the side of the large sun.

    Fine, I'll just say it. SOMEONE must think the same. This is exactly what the Disneyland suits bank on:

    That a fountain that wouldn't look out of place in a high-end mall gets rave reviews that claim it helps transform their theme park.

    To me, it looks like a fairly plain, tiled fountain.

    I love how the fountain plays on designs from Art Deco fountains from the 1920's. Seems to be a hybrid of the Glenarm Power Plant fountain in front of the PWP's (Pasadena Water and Power) 1927 Art Deco styled power plant in Pasadena (which is a beautiful fountain btw, especially at night, I drive by it a lot) and the Mulholland Fountain in Griffith Park/Los Feliz. I know the Imagineers on BVS did tons of research on old Los Angeles (I know they were working with many local historians and had access to extensive libraries on the history of the Southland, the largest one being at USC, as well as taking their own study field trips) and it's outlying communities (Pasadena, Westwood, Atwater Village, Los Feliz, Silverlake, etc...) to get BVS right and it seems they are doing a fantastic job.

    Here's the Glenarm Fountain in Pasadena (same glass cube spire, yellow tiles, metal work)


    And the Mulholland Fountain in Los Feliz (you can see they took design details from near the top of fountain).

    Two of my favorite three LA fountains! The 3rd being the "Electric Fountain" at Wilshire/Santa Monica.http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_GmQj3LxBW7...-+Fountain.JPG
