DDW Pic 217. Sunset Boulevard - Red Car
Sunset Boulevard - Red Car
This souvenir kiosk on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood Studios is made to look like an old style trolley. It is reminiscent of the "Red Car Line" that was used in the 30's and 40's in Southern California. There are even electric lines that run overhead to help complete the story. There is a detail on this kiosk that is overlooked by 99.9% of the guests that walk by. You will see the number 694 in a couple of spots. This refers to the fact that Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood Studios opened in June of 1994. This is similar to the "Route 498" sign found over in Dinoland referring to the opening month and year of Animal Kingdom.
