Another thread brought up the idea for a 3rd Gate again and it got me thinking of a somewhat radical, somewhat sacrilegious idea for reorganizing some current lands/attractions into a 3rd park.
A couple major ideas for a 3rd Gate are Epcot and TDS/AK. I'd love either one, in fact, I'd like to have both, but there's not enough room. So I'm going to concentrate on the idea of the latter.
I could envision a land-based version of TDS, with maybe a bit of AK thrown in. It would be heavy on adventure and fantasy-adventure, with the influences of Jules Verne, HG Wells, Discovery Bay, Steam Punk.
Here's the radical/sacrilegious part: move the Jungle Cruise and Indy to the new park. The Jungle Cruise would become a non-comedy, more realistic, larger attraction, with more AA's. Would it be expensive to move/rebuild Indy? You bet! But the theory is you're realigning JC and Indy to the new park where they would fit better.
AND, here's the big DL improvement: you then have the opportunity to remove the terrible bottleneck that is the current small, non-expandable Adventureland. You could rework that space by expanding NOS and/or Frontierland, create a more open connection to Main Street and even add the old concept of Edison Square. On top of that, the Steam Punk theming of Tomorrowland would move to the new park and TL could return to its futuristic theme.
Remove one of the 5 original Disneyland lands? Move one of the classic original DL attractions? Spend large amounts of money moving Indy and rebuilding JC? None of those will happen, but the result might be pretty nice. Your thoughts?
