Yeah, but it wasn't originally like that. The whole park was essentially LA/Old Hollywood. It wasn't just the main street type entrance area. The Sunset Ranch Market area leading to the Tower of Terror is a facsimile of the original farmer's market in Los Angeles, all the huge warehouse buildings are mimicking the soundstages you find on Paramount etc. studio lots, and so on. Even the Streets of America were themed as though you were in a studio backlot for filming. Essentially the park was designed so that part of the park was LA outside of a studio lot, and everything else was inside a studio lot.I get what you’re saying about the area transitions, but like I said, you can argue over the execution of how certain elements are implemented all you want, but that doesn’t change the thematic appropriateness of something within the park.
Also, keep in mind that the LA/Old Hollywood sections are DHS’s equivalent to MK’s Main Street USA or DAK’s Discovery Island and shouldn’t have to try any harder transitioning it into the other areas of the park than they do. While the lands of DHS don’t neatly radiate off the center of the park like in those two cases, much like the transition from Galaxy’s Edge to Toy Story land, there isn’t much that could’ve been done about that.
Now the park feels like a random mishmash of areas that have absolutely nothing to do with each other. I'm not sure what they could have done to change that, though -- once they gave up on the working studio idea the whole theme of the park went with it. I wouldn't want them to change any of the LA inspired areas because I love them, but without totally redoing everything I think the park is doomed to be a random assortment of IPs rather than any sort of cohesive whole.
Anyways, I still agree about the thematic appropriateness. I don't think any IP is thematically inappropriate there.
