The Imagineers of Main Street
I know I'm getting older because it's the theming these days that makes me stand back in awe rather than the rides themselves.
I love the stories behind the theming.
I love stories like this referring to Main Street @ Disneyland Paris:
“Europeans are interested in what’s behind the storefronts. The façades are not enough. Instead of having Coke Corner, which is just a place where you go for a Coke and a hot dog – something Americans take for granted – we gave European visitors Casey’s Corner, which is a kind of vintage soda-fountain environment..”
(Attributed to Tony Baxter)
Believe me when I say that Main Street at Disneyland Paris oozes more "Americana" atmosphere than any of the Disney Parks in USA
I truly believe that the Imagineers at Disney are up there with the Oscar laden super stars of Broadway and beyond.
If Eddie Sooto was British I reckon he should be knighted.
