I was at DCA last Monday and I noticed that one of the things that bothered me about the park was not quite as apparent. At one time, you could see the Convention Center and the Hilton from just about anywhere in the park. Now, it seems trees have been planted around the perimeter of the Screamin track and the existing trees are starting to grow. Unfortunately, the view heading toward the farm with the winery on the right is still the worst of the park -- power lines, convention center, Hilton, Coast Hotel, etc.
Is there an effort underway to actually hide the outside world like Disneyland has done so well? A few months before DCA opened, I had the opportunity to tour the construction site with a former VP/Exec of DL. When one of the individuals on our tour asked about the outside distractions on Katella and Harbor, he replied that there was not focus to hide them. He even gave a political response, "When guests see the outside world, what will they see? California!"
What are your suggestions to hide the darn power lines and convention center on Katella?
I would build a larger section of warf buildings in the area. They don't even have to be functional or accessible. This would simply create an illusion that the place is larger, similar to the effect in New Orleans Square with the sails behind POC.
