    Does anyone STILL prefer Sunshine Plaza over Buena Vista Street?

    I was just looking up pics for BVS online and came across Sunshine Plaza pics mixed in as well. I didn't think it would be a big deal, but when I looked at them I was a bit floored at how bad it all holds up. Considering what they are doing now, with all of the gorgeous new building and creating a classic looking space, Sunshine Plaza was such a garish Ugly bit of business.

    Does anyone truly miss it or prefer it over BVS? I supposed there will be those 1 or 2 people who will never warm up to the new area, but I honestly can't imagine that many people (after the initial shock of its removal) will be too upset that Sunshine plaza is gone.

    Nope. Not gonna miss Sunshine Plaza at all. Just like I don't miss Superstar Limo. Buena Vista Street is a huge improvement. It's amazing to think that the California Adventure is getting two whole new lands this summer. Both I'm looking forward to seeing this summer.

    Re: Does anyone STILL prefer Sunshine Plaza over Bena Vista Street?

    I kinda liked the old California music loop in the area. I'm not sure about how I feel about the rest of the section, but I imagine the Buena Vista Street section should turn out real good.
    My top favorite Disneyland attractions:

    1. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
    2. Pirates of the Caribbean
    3. Splash Mountain
    4. Mad Tea Party
    5. Peter Pan's Flight
    6. Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin

    My only regret is I don't think there have been many video walkthroughs of sunshine plaza or its stores. I'd really like for its terribleness to be captured on video and made viewable for both nostalgia and side by side comparison videos.

    I'm super excited for BVS, but I do miss some things about the old entrance. Mainly, the murals and the California themed music loop.

    No I don't. I love sunshine plaza don'tget me wrong. But I just go with the flow and I am going to love BVas much as I did SP. Reality is this they aren't going to tear downBV St. and rebuild sunshine plaza so I might as well just live withit!

    Oh I have there arn't that many around of good quality mostly because i'd guess nobody cared too strongly. There are a few from opening though clips recorded from back then were somewhat subpar. It would've been really nice to have gotten some high res video of it all back in 2008

    Of course BVS is going to be a million times better! I guess there's a part of me that would miss SP. I walked through it many times for nearly a decade!

    Who in their right mind would prefer Sunshine Plaza. I can see how some people may miss it for a while due to memories and what not, but BVS is such a major improvement.
