    Please put Little Mermaid ride in Disneyland proper

    I read on Jim Hill Media that they are seriously considering putting a Little Mermaid ride in the Magic Kingdom in Florida. While I'm thrilled there will also be one in California - I wish they would put it in Disneyland! It just seems like a classic fit - and anyone who says there isn't room - it's Disneyland, they can figure it out. What does anyone else think?

    True, Disney are masters at squeezing attractions in a small, living space!!

    There's no space for it in Disneyland. Yes, there's space in Disneyland for new stuff, but not anywhere that'd be appropriate for the Little Mermaid. Unless the Fantasyland Theater were removed, which I wouldn't have a problem with. EDIT: And I'm told you shouldn't necessarily believe everything you read on Jim Hill...

    I think that TLM fits in DCA perfectly. However I think that we aught to get a Beauty and The Beast ride in the motorboat lagoon area.

    The little mermaid ride will go great into DCA, something else should go into Disneyland.

    I'm all for it being in DCA. It will work out well in area that they are creating around it there. In Disneyland, there would be no room to put an attraction of it's size in without removing the Fantasyland Theater like Datameister said.

    DCA can definitely use a big dark ride like this, whereas Disneyland itself has eight dark rides (I'll count Buzz for this) based on animated films already. DCA has one, Monsters Inc. or if you count TSMM, two.

    Disneyland has a lot going for it...DCA needs help. Do we really want to lump all the lame attractions into the "other" park? The point of having DCA there is to evenly distribute crowds and maker it a resort area...not have one park the golden child and then the other the ugly cousin.

    yeah i agree with them, disneyland has a lot going for it, it doesnt need more rides like that. it does need new ones but the little mermaid to me, seems like a DCA ride.

    Re: Please put Little Mermaid ride in Disneyland proper

    While I think it would be awesome to rip out the Fantasyland Theater and put it in there (death to the PFF)... DCA needs the help desperately, and the Pier area, with an already existing Ariel restaurant and seaside theme is a great location for it.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    I see some validity in airick75's reasoning. Ariel is shown as a Princess in most merchandise and she comes from a traditional animated film rather than a Pixar film. Perhaps Buzz Lightyear should be moved to DCA to make the themes consistent?

    Or how about Little Mermaid in the old motorboat area - water, nice transition between the submarine lagoon and Fantasyland.

    Although I think it important to give people a reason to go over to DCA...

    I'll say the same thing too. Little Mermaid is a perfect fit in DCA.

    Honor Hunter has been reporting the same thing, so you don't have to believe Jim Hill solely.

    I agree with what most people have said, I think it will be a good fit for PP and DCA and is needed in DCA far more than DL.
    The Mickey audience is not made up of people; it has no racial, national, political, religious or social differences or affiliations; the Mickey audience is made up of parts of people, of that deathless, precious, ageless, absolutely primitive remnant of something in every world-wracked human being which makes us play with children’s toys and laugh without self-consciousness at silly things, and sing in bathtubs, and dream and believe that our babies are uniquely beautiful. You know…the Mickey in us.

    Re: Please put Little Mermaid ride in Disneyland proper

    I also believe that the Little Mermaid ride should go in DCA. Some say that it is a perfect fix, but don't explain WHY that is. It would seem that Fantasyland would be the right place because mermaids are a fantasy. That is true, and it would fit there.

    But California is a coastal state. The ocean is a major asset of California that does not have much of a focus in DCA. I think that a place in DCA that carries the theme of the ocean thru to include the Little Mermaid would fit fine.

    I really would prefer that Disney stopped building duplicate rides on both coasts. In recent years, there has been: TSMM, BLAB, Turtle Talk with Crush, Block Party Bash (moved), Soarin, etc. Goodness knows the Magic Kingdom needs a new decent ride waaaaaay more than either DL or DCA!
