I’ve always enjoyed these video essays from Rob Plays. He always brings interesting points outside the common ideas.
Dinoland U.S.A. has always been a visual disaster for Disney fans. I enjoyed it a a small age, but over time the whole place looks out of place.
Meanwhile, Paradise Pier has always been visually interesting for me. Ive never been in DCA and my comments are only based on pictures and videos.
Nostalgia is one of the key features in many theme lands across Disney parks. And maybe Rob is right saying that how we perceive the theming of a land might involve hoy much nostalgia and emotional investment we have for it.
