Regarding the entrance to "Walt Disney Studios" park in Paris, DLP's "DCA":
"Through an ornate set of gates, you enter a nice plaza that's slightly Spanish Colonial Revival and very yellow. There's an animate fountain, palm trees and the sight of the Earfel (is there an appropriate spelling?) Tower. As a warped version of Walt Disney's "weenie", here we find Studio 1, a colossal yellow soundstage right ahead of us. Inside is a glitzy cliche Hollywood street built up of more cliches and very obvious sets attached to robust hardware. A few shops and facilities are on either side, a faux starry sky is above us, vistas of an endless Hollywood street bathed in the light of a sunset and searchlights are above the entrances.
Now here's the thing. At this point, a certain amount of expectation builds up. You've seen the trailer and it looked very nice, so surely the actual film will be great?
Then you step outside Studio 1 and find yourself staring at absolutely nothing. Like with every single Jim Carrey film, all the good jokes were in the trailer.
So does it work? With a nice park attached to it, surely. I imagine."

Do you suppose something like Studio 1 is planned to replace Sunshine Plaza? (At DCA the monorail might cut right through the building, perhaps giving visitors a glimpse of it? Through a glass window, like the Disneyland Railroad does through Splash Mountain?)
That might be cool.
