First off let me say I have never been inside DCA.
I know that Disney employs the technique used as forced perspective to make the buildings seem larger and they gradually get smaller as they continue on. Main Street uses this technique as does the hotel that is located in Canada at Epcot.
Does the Grand Californian impose too much into the Grizzly Peak area? Does it dwarf the desired scale of Grizzly Peak?
If it was designed to fit with the scale of the land, shouldn't it have been made much smaller because in theme parks nothing is real life scale yet there is a huge hotel intruding in the land. Or do you not notice it?
I know TDS has the Hotel MiraCoasta which is a full sized hotel but it must work because they have the huge bay in front of it whereas in DCA the land is much more compact.
What are your thoughts on the subject? Just wondering.
