    What's your idea of a 3rd park?

    I was just wondering what you would like the theming be for a third themepark. Of course they would need more land though.

    They say that a 3rd gate is already on the drawing board. I personally think it'd be cool to take the idea of the world showcase at epcot and expand upon it. Make about 7 or so countries (or 'lands') based on different countries. This way you get somewhat of a new concept, but the concept would still be able to adapt to the already successful disney formula.

    That is a great idea. My idea however was something like a revised Disney Sea themepark or a revised Disney's Animal Kingdom park.

    That is a great idea as well. The only problem I have with an idea like that is if it happens, I'm afraid all of the whiners will come out and talk bad about the new park because it's a 'copy'. The old argument that DL always gets the leftovers from WDW and TDL (ie: TOT, pooh, and buzz)

    I don't know who owns this land but I thought it would a good place for a water park. The yellow line is the parking lot and the red line is the park.

    oooh I swear you people

    how could you forget so soon

    that's exactly how the land should be used

    water park belongs behind Paridise Pier (I'll make a post about that soon I suppose)


    I've often said that theme wise we need a third gate that has parts of Epcot, DisneySea and a bit of Animal Kingdom thrown in (I suppose I'll have to make a thread that clarifys that more soon also, I started to make one but I'm having a hard time mapping out my ideas effectivly)

    Agreed. Or would everyone rather pay $50 for a quarter-day park?

    maybe, but it's still wise to prepare for the opening of a third gate while you work on fixing the second

    you do this by buying out strategic hotels and spots of land, maybe even buying out houses in this case, you build more parking garages expand your luxery hotels and maybe even provide something like Disneyquest as a testing point for the final phase

    and then after all of that takes place (10-20 years) you can build the third gate, and when you do build it, it will be very well thought out and the area around it will have already been set in advance for it's arrival, you can save money and time because you'll already have good infulstructre in place and imagineering can focas on the park

    Well, I've posted this elsewhere, but the basic concept is a re-Imagineering of Epcot. Rather than have two separate stories, Future World and World Showcase, our pak host, Figment, guides us through ImagiNations.

    The layout is based on the four corners of the globe. In the NE corner you have Eurasia, SE is Africa, and SW is South America. Along the way, we are reminded of the contributions each land has made to Progress and Innovation.

    From here, we replace the Future World concept with Disney's America and a few other unrealized ideas. Providing my plan to put this into Main St. doesn't work, a replica of Eliis Island would host the American Adventure-based restyling of Carousel of Progress. Then the area breaks off into the Edison Square and Liberty Street concepts. Finally, we end our park visit with a retooled Horizons.

    I have to admit, I'm intrigued by the Utilidors concept going in a new direction. I started thinking about Buena Park Mall, and how the ground level is actually the second floor. It may seem more expensive, but using this kind of expanded below-ground complex, even for guest-accessible areas, should prove more cost-effective than Disney trying to buy out more and more adjacent land.

    Finally, I've pondered using more PeopleMover technology rather than Monorail. For that matter, I recently saw a commercial where a ski lift gondola was essentially patterned after an enclosed Skyway bucket, and I had to wonder if somehow the PeopleMover cars could be similarly enclosed for safety, and perhaps even have a section in which a PeopleMover train could separate, and each car could take off on a Skyway path. What I would sort of like to see is a PeopleMover track from the Transportation Center out to Harbor, turning South to travel behind HPB, then turning East on Katella, reaching the north side entrance to the park. The PM station is themed as the North Pole to continue the park's theme even outside the gates. Then, you can exit, or that the PeopleMover as it becomes a Skyway, providing an overhead view of the Four Corners of the Globe. You can either get off at the South Pole, or exit back at the Transportation Center. Ticket holders ride free, and even if you're not visiting the park, you can purchase something like the ART pass and just take the ride.

    Could you combine both? Not being a local, is there room for a theme park along the lines of Animal Kingdom? Meaning they would need room for a Kilimanjaro Safari ride with animals and shelters for them at night/bad weather. But more rides and "lands" like those I have read about for DisneySeas in Tokyo would be fantastic! Okay, okay people complain about DL being the "ugly stepsister" now and getting all the hand-me-downs, but I have read about some fantastic rides and attractions done by Imagineering in TDL and have experienced some great shows and rides and parades at Animal Kingdom (as well as from Disneyland Paris).
    Actually now that I think about it, you could combine both of these with an EPCOT WorldShowcase type of park. NOW that is thinking big! It would be exotic locations from Asia, Africa, Australia, and South America. Themes for rides, shows, attractions and parades could be pulled from around the world (DLP and TDL). Would local SoCal people come back for that? I know out of state tourists would! Plus they would need to build moderate and value hotels with one deluxe hotel with this park. DL/DCA already have 3 deluxe hotels.
    I will post more specific details later.

    That is a wonderful idea. I have not thought of that. But here is the kicker. They are going to need a whole lot of land that they necessarily do not have currently.

    My thought about the waterpark plan is very troubleing. :confused: I do not know exactly how hot it gets in Southern California or how much rain falls, but the idea of a waterpark just does not sound right.
