Design Detail: Disney's Hollywood Studios

When it comes to follow through, Disney's Hollywood Studios is a justified target. The suits have hamstringed the park with a poor layout, tired theater shows, a minimal attraction count, and a cut rate version of Disneyland's Fantasmic!

However, when you measure design detail, the park is a stunning example of what can be done. Look at my photograph above. Even though it is a jumbled mess itself, when viewed up close, the abundance of artistic touches astounds. Soundstages aside, this is consistent thoughout the park. Detail that pleases the eye and kills the time while waiting for Toy Story Midway Mania!
