I know people love to criticize Hollywood Studios, but when I used to go there in my youth I really enjoyed that place and especially the recreation of a romanticized old Hollywood/L.A. in the "Hollywood Boulevard" and Sunset Boulevard" parts of the park. I still really dig those areas. I love the building facades and the aesthetic of the architecture and just the overall feel of those streets.
Since Buena Vista Street has opened at California Adventure, many Disney related sites have stated that it has been very well received and people were generally impressed. When I saw it for myself I was a little disappointed. I felt like the facades weren't particularly impressive and the interiors of the stores were pretty dull. I know Buena Vista Street is meant to represent 1920's Los Angeles, while Hollywood and Sunset at DHS are themed on 1940s L.A., so perhaps differing eras account for something. But overall I didn't feel that Buena Vista Street really "takes you to another place" as well as it's DHS counterparts, and isn't as charming.
I was just curious to see what others thought. For those of you who've seen both, which do you prefer?
What are your general thoughts?
