    I personally prefer the white and gold. It's a very clean look, and it's beauty is in it's simplicity. The first time I saw it painted white (it was always in color when I was a kid), it totally took my breath away.


    Leave it white!!

    Re: Small world without color or in color

    I was just thinking this the other night... While I respect the artistic merits of the white and blue (which is meant to represent the purity and happiness of children) - I also came to the conclusion that I started to miss the colors.

    If only there was a way to add some expensive lighting effects at night... (no not the cheap projections).

    I grew up with the colors, so I'm partial to that. It was such a shock went it went back to white. I hated it at first, but it's grown on me.

    I love the white and gold look. It was the original scheme for the facade and I believe that it looks way better than the "Pressler Pastels" ever did.

    I don't think Pressler can be blamed for the pastels since they were painted on in 1992. But anyway, my absolute favorite is the blue/gray/white combo, since that's what I grew up with in the 70s-80s. But I'm thrilled that it's white now. Fading isn't an issue, and it's classy.

    The nighttime facade lighting is horrid - I'm not sure why. When the attraction had a proper sign (the Bank of America canopies), there were more floodlights attached to that structure to help illuminate everything. Hopefully, as mentioned that a new marquee will be part of the refurb, the addition of that will allow for more spots to be added back.

    And while they're at it, I really miss the gelled flourescent tubes that used to light up the topiaries!

    Color fades too fast and looks awful within 7 years. White does not look as bad so fast.

    But that certainly shouldn't be a reason for painting it white. If it looked better in color than it should be in color. After all Toontown isn't white.

    Agreed, the color looks better IMO and fading is just a matter of proper care and touch ups when needed.

    Re: Small world without color or in color

    The claim that white fades less than colors is odd to me, as I distinctly remember reading in The Nickel Tour that, according to the book, the facade was painted pastel shades with the justification that the white got soiled periodically by the pollution in Southern California air or something.

    I don't buy it either way. There are aspects of both palettes that I like on the facade, but justifying a color purely on how fast it will tarnish is as ridiculous as painting red and black checkerboard squares the Matterhorn to cut back on how often the white snow has to be touched up.

    Gold and white, without question. That's the classic color pattern. The pastels were an abomination.

    Classic white and gold. The pastels were absolutely gaudy however they need better lighting at night. Perhaps they need more blue mood lighting.
