The former Earl of Sandwich was the last to close, joining Sugarboo & Co. and Starbucks in the venues lost to the reimagining.

  1. What a waste. That was a really nice theater, and the best IMAX in Southern California. We’d go to the park, then see a movie or vice versa. It was a very successful theater until Disney got rid of the complimentary parking. They wound up giving you 4 hours and that required a theater stamp – 4 hours was not nearly enough time to go grab dinner and a movie. Then they gave the whole DTD lot to the CM’s which I get, but having theatergoers park far away in the Paradise Pier or Mickey/Pixar structure was asking a lot. This demo further plunges DTD into subpar status in comparison to Disney Springs – that mall and it’s theater are beyond superior to DTD. Adding the Pele and greeting card store; where The Void used to be, none of it makes any sense at all. Disney just keeps going backwards.
