Snapshot! - Villains in Deco

http://www.2719hyperion.comMore from this Domain

The Beverly Sunset Sweet Spells shop in Disney's Hollywood Studios is an odd but effective and sometimes stunning mixture of Gothic and Art Deco styles that extends to the nearby Villains in Vogue location as well. Often missed due to the store's attractive and tempting assortment of candy and pastries is a series of high perched reliefs that serve as a hall of fame of Disney villains.

The Brand New "Destination D"

http://www.2719hyperion.comMore from this Domain

As many of you know, the D23 Expo has been moved to a biennial event. At the Walt Disney Company shareholder's conference, Bob Iger announced Destination D. This looks like it will be a biennial event, too. Something for the die-hard fans that really goes deep into Disney history. I can only imagine what Destination D will offer in the future.

2719 HYPERION: The Lake Buena Vista Story, Part One: 1969 - 1975

http://www.2719hyperion.comMore from this Domain

What follows is the story of one of Walt Disney World’s most ignored and least understood construction projects. Disney themselves seem loathe to admit what they were up to, back in the early 70’s, which is a shame because the armchair Disney historian may be surprised to learn of the ways the company was actually working towards that goal – on a perhaps more realistic scale. Disney called it “the Resort Community of Lake Buena Vista”.

The Lake Buena Vista Story, Part Four

http://www.2719hyperion.comMore from this Domain

But this is what made Lake Buena Vista, and all of Walt Disney World, extraordinary, was their total lack of oversight from local governing bodies, allowing their creations to be geared towards maximum effectiveness and aesthetic quality, something no mere housing development outside of the 27,000 square mile Florida property can hope to achieve. In his book Foglesong indicates that Disney likely never intended to build their EPCOT City.

http://www.2719hyperion.comMore from this Domain

2719 HYPERION: Bobbing Along with a Bob-A-Round

http://www.2719hyperion.comMore from this Domain

A casual glance at a vintage 1975 Walt Disney World brochure sent us to investigating this theme parkeology mystery. Accompanying the section of the brochure entitled A World of Resorts was a photograph featuring numerous rental watercrafts: sailboats, a paddleboat, and a very odd, and heretofore unknown to us, round boat with a red and white striped canopy.

2719 HYPERION: Walt Disney's Los Angeles 1923-1931: A Bicycle Ride to Kingswell

http://www.2719hyperion.comMore from this Domain

2719 Hyperion. It is a simple address that has evolved into a near-iconic term for Disney historians, journalists and enthusiasts. And we would like to as modestly as possible think that we have contributed to that evolution over the course of the last four years of 2719 Hyperion.com.

Editors Note: When we last left Buddy Robinson, he had just rode his bicycle past the home of Robert Disney on Kingswell Avenue. Buddy suddenly remembers that he wants to check what's playing at the Vista Theatre, so he points his bicycle south off Kingswell onto Hillhurst Avenue. He travels the four blocks to the corner of Hillhurst and Hollywood Boulevard where the Vista is located.
