    FYI - The Animation Building has been advertised as 4 different sub-attractions under the "Disney Animation" building header since it got it's new marquee and the new attraction posters. The Guide to the Magics the feature Monsters Inc on the front have the attractions listed as four separate ones as well.

    It's very interesting that they're finally promoting the building heavily though. It's about time. The place is hardly ever busy, which is sad considering it's one of DCA's few great attractions.

    I agree that there are some great attractions in there, but the problem is still the outside.

    The street is called a "BACKLOT!" A backlot is a series of facades that don't have anything behind them. As long as they still call it "Hollywood Backlot" there will never be a huge number of people in the Animation Building because new people will not know to go in, after all it is a backlot!

    It is one of the few doors that really does lead somewhere. Most doors are just a facade. If they had built it like Main Street, where every door is a real store, then people would have wanted to explore. But now it is like "the backlot" at DMGMS at WDW which has NO working doors, it is just a facade. People don't even attempt to go into the buildings there, because it is a BACKLOT.

    And a animation building would never appear on a backlot anyway. When themes are confused as with DCA, then this kind of confusion happens.

    Main Street has plenty of non-working doors.

    I hardly think "Backlot" in the name of the land is the problem. Otherwise, people would just think the Tower of Terror and Monsters Inc are nothing more than fancy facades and not worry about going inside.

    Yaaayyyy!! No more Club Buzz stuff!!

    And are there any current rumors as to what's going under the People Mover platform? Did I miss that somewhere, cuz it wouldn't surprise me. Was wondering if they might be moving the Autopia shop over there since they got kicked out by the subs.

    Great pics DB.

    Actually, the Autopia Winner's Circle is moving to where the current Hatmosphere shop is. The merchandise from Hatmosphere will be moving into the old Radio Disney booth (underneath the Peoplemover platform). The new store underneath the Peoplemover platform will be called Tomorrow Landing

    Oh cool! Thanks!

    Hey, that was me with Fishbulb and Dusty when we saw you in line for Pirates. Sorry I didn't go back and introduce myself. I was in mid-conversation with Dusty. Then I found out who you guys were and I was mad at myself for not going back! Dumb G4! Hopefully I will meet you soon!!
