Five years on from its opening in 2002, the world of Walt Disney Studios Park is starting to show its age. Luckily, with CinéMagique just out of refurbishment and Flying Carpets Over Agrabah scheduled for an epic clean-up in March, they're definitely on the case. Next up, at least as far as we can tell, is the crumbling searchlight flooring of the park entrance, always a sore point with refurb-watchers!,
In the superficial world of the movies it’s all about first impressions, and for that Front Lot is a shining example. Unfortunately, those spiralling patterns and stars of the fanciful flooring just in front of the turnstiles have been crumbling for several years – until now, that is! The 15th Anniversary superhero has stepped up to the job once again! DLRP_bopazot on MiceChat reports construction walls have this weekend closed off the entire area between the main resort hub and the park entrance, leaving guests to enter via the gate towards Disneyland Park and walk right around the hub to get to the Studios.
A refurbishment of this disappointing area ready for the anniversary and the extra guests and press attention it will bring with it is certainly very welcome, but one has to think of the poor guests arriving at the park this month. Once they’re past this unfriendly gathering of fences, they’ve still to face the onlaught of walls for Hollywood Studio, Tower of Terror and Toon Studio! Whether they appreciate that “it’ll be worth it in the end” is up for the Cast Members at Studio Services to decide…
