    wow...what happened...
    You would think that being in New York for eight months out of the year would be cool...not when the closest thing you have to Disneyland is the World of Disney Store on Madison.

    That looked interesting. I wonder the reason why they decided to go another way.

    The Westcot image here is actually the "super-deluxe" first version they had for Westcot. After they judged it as too expensive, they came up with a second less expensive configuration which eliminated a lot of the costly items in the first version. But Eisner still said it was too expensive and so in his infinite wisdom he bestowed upon us DCA.

    well actualy they've pretty much zoned everything they own now except that one corner which for some reason they left intact (after buying and destroying many of it's neighbors)

    the only thing they don't own is that one recommended parking lot (which ironicaly I also recommended in my 3rd gate thread) which is supposed to be home to that Anihiem shopping center

    Wow!
    Westcot looks like it would have been great. I only have one comment on it though. Doesn't it seem like a lot of the park was indoors? I mean, in southern California, where it is usually bright and sunny, and hardly ever rains (2004-2005 excluded), wouldn't you want to keep as much of the park outdoors as possible?

    I love Epcot, I still get a kick out of the 1980's version that it was. I would have loved to see an Epcot in California. I still think it would have been, in any form, much, much greater than DCA.
