Westwind, someone asked that question on the disney blog and here is what the disney blogger said:


"These will be available for purchase along with the other posters that have been featured in Blue Sky Cellar in Spring 2012."

^ Thanks CC - obviously I did not take the time to read all the comments in the Disney Blog.

I really do like the new posters that they have been making for the park. It is little touches like this that the DCA has been missing for the past 10 years.

I just looked at Mint Crocodile's update and Buena Vista Street looks fantastic. The sad part is that inevitably all the amazing details and dedication to storytelling will all be undone by the impracticality of operating a theme park as a show set in this age. Eventually the store shelves will be filled with the latest Disney movie merchandise and junk from some Princess franchise. I certainly hope it doesn't, but I doubt it.

These pictures look great. My favorite is the Red Car Trolley. Tower of Terror doesn't look bad either.

Hans, I'm already more pessimistic than you are. I have no doubt those gorgeous Art Deco wood shelves in Elias & Co. will be full of Chinese-made Disney corporate Princess n' Pirates junk right from day one.

Buena Vista Street does look fantastic. But with maybe some exceptions in the food locations, I have no expectations that any of the stores will offer 1930 themed merchandise.

I also worry about the DCA CM's of 2012 fitting into those themed 1930 uniforms, with their stringy hair pulled into a dirty scrunchy, and their 30 second makeup job, and their scuffed-up modern shoes from Target. It's like Disney doesn't even care anymore that many of these CM's look like they literally rolled out of bed wearing their uniforms and shuffled in to work.

It's the details that matter, but the CM kids don't even know that. I honestly don't think anyone has ever told them.

But on a brighter note, from at least 15 feet away and ignoring the Cast Members working there, Buena Vista Street is going to look absolutely FANTASTIC! I really can't wait to explore this new land next summer.

There's a few exceptions Jim, but so many CM's now just look so.... slobby.

Especially some of the ladies. And ladies, NONE of us are 19 anymore and can roll into that morning PolySci class with minimal work and still look good. Similarly, you can't roll into work in a polyester themed uniform and only spend 3 minutes on your hair and makeup and expect to pull it off.

I wish Disney could do something about the way so many of their park employees look. The WDI creative types spend all this time and money (LOTS of money!) to pull together a fabulous looking environment like Buena Vista Street, and then TDA spends all this money to design and maintain a gazillion themed uniforms for these employees to wear, but the end result looks so slobby because the employees wearing the uniforms don't appear to give a darn. And no manager ever seems to stop them at the break room and says "Hey, your hair looks like a rats nest, your eyeliner looks like Cleopatra, your shoes look like you just played soccer in them, and your uniform hasn't been pressed in a week. You can't work like that, you need to go home for the day."

I wish Disney could crack down on things with the way their front-line CM's look.

I just watched Pan Am on ABC tonight and had to laugh at the girdle checks and hat inspections the stewardesses had to go through when checking in for their next flight. It obviously shouldn't be like that, but would it kill Disney to do at least the bare minimum when it comes to checking out their hourly CM's before they report to work? Or helping them try to live a healthier life so they didn't look so unfortunate in their themed uniforms? It's getting bad out there. :-(

And I thought the CMs in Paris were bad, but at least most of them looked well dressed and didn't wear sport shoes. They weren't just as motivated as the ones we met in Florida.
