Mickey's Of Hollywood

This facade for Mickey's of Hollywood is based on a building located at 6601 Hollywood Boulevard in California.  Check out the original on my architecture blog.  Like the Emporium at the Magic Kingdom, Mickey''s of Hollywood runs the entire block with various facades covering the exterior.

Ah, the good old days when the view down Hollywood Boulevard made sense with the Chinese Theater luring us down the street unobstructed by a stupid giant hat (oh, and there's Mickey of Hollywood on the corner).

Go (shopping).

Chester & Hester's Dino-Rama

Just like those tacky roadside attractions of yesteryear, Dino-Rama is a cornucopia of eye gouging colors, carnival games and simple pleasures.  It's impossible to resist.

Stop in for some dino themed tchotchkes.

Here are a few pictures from the old Illuminations show probably from the early 90's.  Not the best quality as they were all shot without the use of a tripod.



United Kingdom




I believe these last two might actually be Sorcery in the Sky at the Studios visible behind the France Pavillion.
