    If it didn't bother you a couple of years ago, it shouldn't bother you now. Those buildings have been there for ages.

    The buildings are painted--or stuccoed--to blend with the scenery. They're not all that obvious unless you're looking at and for them. There's greenery around Hour Glass Lake shore that obscrues them to a certain extent.

    Gotcha.

    I personally like Pop better than the All Stars. You don't notice the other side at Pop unless you are specifically at the back of the resort looking for it.

    I liked Pop too. The buildings back there aren't much to look at lol. We didn't know about them until we walked around and saw them.

    I heard that everything came to a hault after 9/11. You never know, look what they did to the tree houses, maybe they'll eventually open it.

    Yeah thats what I heard, they are going to be reused for the Art of Animation Resort, so thats good that they wont go to waste.

    You can see them from the road when you are coming into Pop Century.
