Some Old with Some New
The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Undersea Adventure building contains a relic from the original Disney California Adventure--the recreation of San Francisco's Palace of Fine Arts, which used to mark the entrance of the old Golden Dreams show that stood in this place before its transformation. At some point in time in the scheme of Disney Imagineering planning, everything was to be razed, but this building was eventually salvaged. I like the result--a classical structure that blends nicely with the Victorian style of the new show building, which fits the theme of the reimagined Paradise Pier being a classic Victorian boardwalk. And it's definitely a beautiful structure.
