    Redoing the Esplanade

    so Buena Vista Street and Main Street compliment each other very well but now between them, the esplanade doesnt work for me. it just seems dead and just Eh. so how about adding some landscape and a lot of trees and make it look like a park, maybe redress the ticket booths to match the styles of both streets. make people who have never been there impressed before they even walk in. this will make a great shift when going from Main Street into Buena Vista Street. Hell, even the Partner's Statue could be moved here, it'll fit right in just a thought, what are your thoughts?

    Re: Redoing the Esplanade

    This was actually on the list of things to do, but I believe DCA got all the extra money. There's a graphic somewhere of a fountain being placed there. I wish they would, so it would block those downtown disney people who camp out to see fireworks and trip everyone who actually paid admission, as they park hop.

    Re: Redoing the Esplanade

    I think Disney should buy the house that Walt was born in (its for sale right now) and but it in the esplanade.

    Re: Redoing the Esplanade

    I am fine with it being open like it is. It offers great views to both entrances and allows for some spacing from the crowds. Maybe a fountain in the middle would be cool. The thing I think needs work is the security check points. Just makeshift huts and not anything nice to look at. Kinda looks a bit junky to me.

    A fountain would be great! I agree with the OP, some tuning up would be nice. I would not, however, like to see the Partner statue moved. It is so fitting where it is. I can't imagine walking toward the castle without it being there.

    they would never move that statue to where anyone could see it for free.

    Probably because Walt never wanted his likeness to be in the parks, and the Partners statue was the first time his likeness was placed in the park.....

    That said, I love that statue

    From what I understand the Disney family was against it as well.

    From the Lagoon of Liquidspaceman...
    how 'bout a fountain with a statue of Abe Lincoln chasing a boy with an axe?
    Seriously though, I think the Esplanade does need something. It is too expansive and those check points do need to be dealt with. They got to remember, you don't get a second chance to make a first impression! I like the idea of having Walt's house put there. Maybe something else from Maceline MO.
