    Is the New York facade going away, the taxi is gone and all the stores are closed, the couple upstairs who talk to guests still show up. With Dreamworks theater opening soon, this part of the plaza walk will be an eyesore not matching with the old Hollywood look. If so what could they put there? Also, gate 57 next to it where the cast members enter is pretty jarring as well, hopefully that gets changed too.

    After building Fallon, I can’t see it leaving any time soon. Maybe an update is due to bring some consistency.

    It’s a nightmare on mobile trying to figure out what resort is being talked about. A legitimate excuse this time :look:

    It's in the cards eventually, but it's not happening for right now.

    :)Don't feel bad guys. I've done it a number of times too. Sometimes I forget to look at the resort source at the page top. :)

    I'll add a header to specify.

    As for the facade, it was supposed to be removed with DWT but then they just backed away. Like Alex said, it should eventually perish to fit the rest of the entry area.

    Then why close all the little stores and remove the taxi?

    Likely crowd flow reasons for the impending attraction.

    Sweet Liberty, to the best of my understanding, has become closed off for Employees, almost as a break area (but I could be wrong).

    As for the Taxi, I guess they needed it elsewhere or that it was just taking space that would've been better filled for capacity.

    Doesn't look like this is high priority at the moment. I am also hearing that the previous shops will not be returning as the inside of the building has an all new layout for KFP. To me, this is a simple overlay of the façade. Hopefully, this is still in the works for a future date...it is now an eyesore for the main gate area.

    I think it'll be in the cards, sooner than later, but I don't see it happening immediately as DWT opens up.

    Interesting...could New York facades become the SLoP environment?

    That could leave a New York area and leave enough space in Parisian to put in Race Thru New York.

    Jk jk but a BY retheme to Baker Street would be an interesting idea.

    I wish they had something like this at USF New York.
