...I just wanted to ask if it's really true that the Court of Angels in New Orleans Square will be closing forever to the general public (i.e. non club 33 members) to make room for the club 33 expansion?
If so then this is an absolute outrage! I never thought that the day when the decision to rob the park of one of it's most historic and iconic locations in favor of catering to a few privileged number of guests would ever come!
If any place, this is one of the most common spot for people to propose to their loved ones, a place where most of them will never again be able to visit.
It brought life and authenticity to the New Orleans French Quarter theme, and has for a long time been the favorite quiet spot in the park for many people.
Unlike Walt Disney World, who's guests are mostly tourists, It is my understanding that many of your guests are locals with annual passports who will most definitely know and miss the Court of Angels.
Do you worry about the negative sentiments that non c33 members will experience as they walk past the area in the future? I know that for me it will be a very bitter pill to swallow, and I've already heard several people say that they will not be renewing their annual passports because of this.
As someone who grew up in SoCal and used to visit the park all the time as a kid but who now has moved to Europe and can therefor only visit once every couple of years, my trip to The Happiest Place On Earth in October will unfortunately not be a happy one.
Not only did I schedule my trip in late October / Early November (from Denmark!) so that I could experience the newly refurbished Big Thunder Mountain - which I've now learned will not be opening until February - I will also not make it in time to see the Court of Angels for the last time, as I've read that it will close on September 28.
