As we approach the end of Stanza XIII and head towards the finale, let's take a look back at our ten finalists and see how far they've come not just in this Season but from their introductions to imagineering as well!
So I think you can tell --- we really liked your projectMonorailRed’s ReviewsIntroduction - I feel like this was a nice start. I do wish it was sold in an overall mission of improving the park, rather then just an overview of the challenge. It felt like more of a summary than a selling intro to the big project.
Project Overview - The map was spectacular! I think it really shows up like the old 2000s maps at Walt Disney World Resort. Hats off to @DHindley, I think it helped visualize the overall project immensely. Timeline seems realistic n this component as well. Overall I really liked this section!
Muppet City - I love the idea of Converting this specific area of the park into Muppets. I think this was e perfect time period to do this as well - very smart move.
I think the locker integration may have been a nice nod to Muppets Take Manhattan, but also adds a Little confusion to the storyline since the Muppets apprently have apartments within the land? It made the cohesion of the land seem a little more off.
I loved the Electric Mayhem concept! I think it plays off of Mulch, Sweat, and Shears in an odd way.
As someone who previously worked within the classic Streets of America and DHS’s original format, I think there would expansion space where Kermit’s would be within the previous Streets of America, which was also a unique integration. It seems like a unique solution to Toontown. Fozzie’s, Kermit’s, and Miss Piggy’s were a home run.
Overall enjoyed this section!
Star Wars: Tatooine Spaceport - Knocked it out of the park! Loved this!
Warehouse of Wonders - Staying true to Studio this was my favorite project from the entire challenge. Amazing work! I think it really showcases the movie immersion in the way people think of Studios, this really, really, sold the entire project for me. I could see this as a classic attraction.
Maroon Studios - This seemed like a nice revision of Animation Courtyard. I think it adds more immersion to the studios, as well as addressing attractions and experiences for the entire family - Awesoem job!
Sunset Boulavard - THIS WAS AMAZING. Putting Fantasmic in a setting, adding a carousel, Rocketeer and the Gangster attraction. Incredibly impressive.
Overall, I didn’t say much in this review because I was truly floored with the content of this project. It all seemed to fit classic Studios seamlessly, while brining to life wonderful additions that have always addressed Studios’ needs. After seeing this, I can’t wait to see what the finale holds . Great job to everyone involved.
