So the first pictures and official media coverage of the Dream Suite is coming in. The OC Register has a big spread on it on their website, with pictures and such to follow in the morning edition. http://www.ocregister.com/news/dream...park-apartment
(ADMIN NOTE: and the full press coverage on MiceChat: http://www.micechat.com/forums/showt...ase-88847.html )Granted, interior design is a subjective topic, and you'll never please everyone. But my first reaction at the photographs and descriptions? Much of the Dream Suite is, well, tacky!
It seems to me they have gone way overboard here, and instead of turning it back into a gracious and elegant apartment themed to old New Orleans, they've turned it into a garish and trashy exhibit at the convention center Home Show.
I'm reminded of a rather tasteless high-roller suite in a mid-range Las Vegas casino. LED light shows on the ceiling of the master bedroom? LED starfield and audio effects in the bathtub? Uh, that's kind of creepy. And it totally doesn't mesh with the old New Orleans vibe there. In fact, I can't think of any theme in Disneyland this meshes with.
Not all of the changes to the Dream Suite came out badly; I do like how they've spruced up the main balcony, and some of the individual pieces of furniture and color schemes are lovely.
But overall this new Dream Suite looks like it was a Honeymoon Suite designed by a drunken Victoria Gotti and her thug henchmen, rather than a family apartment decorated by the elegant Mrs. Disney and the sophisticated Dorothea Redmond. I think they went a bit too overboard on the Dream Suite.
