    Question Do You Dream of Disneyland??

    Friends, I had a dream. This dream is one I have not had in many a moon. I used to have dreams about Disneyland as a younger man revealing a park that although had the same basic structure as the real thing, were completely different when it came to specifics. Usually Main Street USA and castle were all that were real, while all other elements were merely a mirage. But yesterday revealed not a mirage, but a concrete vision of what Disneyland could become. Please see the below ideas that remained in the cranium following my return to normal function:

    The princess meet and greet area (Fantasyland Theater) is suddenly transformed back into Videopolis, where daily LP shows and nightly dance parties promote all aspects of good timing and carrying on. Is this something you might be interested in? I think there even used to be a little food cart called Yumz! Who would rather wait in a line for two hours to stand awkwardly next to a princess when they could be eating at Yumz?!

    The implosion of the Innoventions building. We’ve seen them on T.V. Expert demolition teams destroying aging casinos and sports complexes for the rise of the new and improved. I would like to see this go down and be followed by the erection of a new building housing a version of the Haunted Mansion, but in the future. It would be called, “Tomorrow’s Ghosts” and would feature ghosts of deceased inventors, space explorers, and such talking about what new inventions are to come, providing we don’t cut funding for things like the space program.

    Pixar Playpen. Yes it’s a playpen; no it’s not just for babies. We’ve all seen Toy Story; who didn’t wish they could be Woody or that space guy when they fell into the crane game with the squishy green aliens? No one. So this is an enormous crane game full of those green guys that you can hop into when the day has gotten to be too much. Lines are too long, kids are too loud, and grandparents everywhere are cursing the names of our saints. Remove yourself from these negatives and find your self resting easy in a giant tub of friendly green aliens. This would of course have to be located in the California Adventure Park due to Pixar’s overwhelming popularity in that region.

    Pin Trading, Pirate Style would be a great addition to the waning French Quarter. In place of Club 33, would be a pin trading experience like none other. Instead of cash registers, Disneyana guides, and strollers used for the sole purpose of transporting pins around the park, this new venue would be “pirate style.” As riders exit POTC, they are hit in the face with a guest experience allowing them to take what they have just learned in the ride and put it to good use. There is plundering, rifling, bartering, sponging and all other ill attempts at acquiring others’ pins. No rules, except no shots to the groin.

    *Club 33 would be moved to its original location, inside the water fall cave in the sub lagoon where the small off-shoot Club 33-H2O is currently located.

    The end of the dream got a little fuzzy; I do remember something about being in the Haunted Mansion and vacuuming up fluorescent colored spooks, but that may have just been the Mexican dinner combined with some delightful bear foot brownie ice cream. You be the scientist. All I know is DLR could use a lift, and these are some great ideas!

    Re: Do You Dream of Disneyland??

    I, once in a great while, do dream of Disneyland. However, the park's layout is very disfigured, I seem to randomly be on an attraction for a few seconds before randomly being on another one. And these attractions, though similar in basic appearance, have many major differences. For example, I once had a dream that I was on Indy but the soundtrack was that of a love song, and the vehicle seemed to be straddling on a wire above ground, at a near 90 degree-angle, in a warehouse.

    Wait...do you mean dreams as in subconscious sleep-dreams, or dreams as in visions/thoughts?

    What's kind of funny is that I am , by my friend's and family's definitions, a Disney geek. But I don't dream of Disneyland or any of the related parks, movies, etc.. That is, to the best of my recollection. Oh well

    Aww, misleading! I thought it was about dreaming while you were asleep not dreaming about the way you want the park to be aww bummer.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Oh no, you can comment in any way you would like! I mentioned I have distorted visions of the park in real "sleep" dreams. These thoughts were actually in the dream I had - super weird. Post away!
