Disneyland and California adventure meet at the Esplanade in such a beautiful, synergistic way that the sum of the two resorts is greater than the individual parts. Even those ambivalent about Disney Resort marvel at the beauty and efficiency of the Esplanade design.
Having all 3 parks meet at the Esplanade would be so beautiful, nearly magical even. There's plenty of room for a 3rd gate entrance on the South side of the Esplanade. Things could be shuffled around. The tram drop-off could be shifted, the small cast costuming buildings could be moved.
Here's the problem: The 3rd Disney Resort park will likely occupy the Toy Story parking lot, probably too far away.
Anything other than a unified Esplanade, containing all 3 gate entrances seems unacceptable. So how can we realistically have the 3rd gate entrance at the south side of the Esplanade, while the actual park is in Toy Story lot?
- Underground people mover?
- High capacity monorail?
- Diagonal elevated walkway crossing Katella and South Harbor Bl, going South West?
- something else?
