Faux-Hollywood, Disney California Adventure – Anaheim, California

I believe the original premise of California Adventure was to use the mystique of California as the theme. There’s a canary row/fisherman’s wharf area, a Napa Valley-style winery, a Santa Monica style boardwalk/amusement park. And there’s this, an old-time, faux-Hollywood-style street with theaters.

You can see the Hyperion Theater, where I watched Frozen, down the street on the right. The blue sky and is painted on a wall, as well as the buildings below it. I suppose I could’ve cropped to add to the illusion.

Hollywood, with its ties to the movie industry, can be an unreal place. They are, after all, in the illusion creating business. So is Disney. It’s kind of ironic that Disney made a fake version of a place that specializes in fakery. I don’t mind this at all. It’s all part of the fun. I suppose, in my own way, making 2D images of a 3D world is my version of faux sleight of hand.
