    Re: 3rd Park and Marvel in Tomorrowland

    As much as I like their comic books, characters and movies.. No Marvel in DLR, period!

    Re: 3rd Park and Marvel in Tomorrowland

    Marvel won't belong in Tomorrowland dur to thematic conflicts. Marvel characters pretty much live in present day, New York. So they definatly won't be able to fit in with Tomorrowland since they live in the modern day with the rest of us.

    I think I would quit if they put Marvel in that park.

    Here's the strawberry field w/ parking lot:

    To the best of my knowledge, the land behind the green line is not owned by Disney.

    Now, we compare it to DCA (same scale, only the line is thinner):

    Assuming Disney uses up all the land they currently own, the 3rd gate would be a tad smaller than DCA.
    You think parking is bad NOW...

    There is some more land off to the right of the picture that I heard Disney owned. It looks like a trailer park on google earth. It's a pretty sizable chunk of land as well. Probably more suited for backstage stuff though.
    I am ashamed of what I've done for a Klondike Bar.

    That's what I said when I heard they were planning to stick a modern day Pixar toon fish and Pixar toon toy robot into Tomorrowland.

    Re: 3rd Park and Marvel in Tomorrowland

    When Disney purchased the Jim Henson Company, Disney never pushed for the Muppets to have a strong presence in the parks (other than Muppetvision 3D). Why would this be any different with the Marvel characters?

    Marvel characters would be a better fit for DHS or maybe DCA. I can almost guarantee they're not going to be added to Disneyland.

    The difference between the box office and DVD earnings for the Muppets' films vs. that of Marvel's megahits, for one.

    Marvel's $4 billion price tag, for another.

    And if that isn't enough, there's the number of times Bob Iger and Tom Skaggs repeated the words "exploit," "synergy" and "California theme parks" during Monday's conference call and followup interviews.

    Disney is spending an enormous chunk of cash not to buy Marvel, but to buy Marvel's 13-to 18-year-old boy audience. I doubt that after spending that much money they'd pass up the opportunity to promote their expensive new stars in front of the millions of boys who come through the gates of Disneyland.

    And if that isn't convincing enough, there's the number of times Bob Iger and Tom Skaggs have repeated the words "exploit," "mine," and "synergy" and "California theme parks" in the last 48 hours.

    Yep, same reason why there are so many Pixar attractions. They got to keep the analysts thinking these big purchases were worth the price. I wish all the people who constantly blame Lasseter for only wanting to create Pixar attractions would recognize this.

    Re: 3rd Park and Marvel in Tomorrowland

    The only Marvel Superhero-Tomorrowland connection I can see is the advanced technology that some of the heroes and villains have. However, that doesn't work for me because only the heroes and villains have it. General society is usually depicted as having ordinary present day technology. Whereas, in Star Wars, you've got droids and spaceships all over the place.

    I'm also against them winding up in HPB. Would you rather feel like you're going on the set of the X-Men movie, or feel like you're going into the actual Xavier Institute?

    Re: 3rd Park and Marvel in Tomorrowland

    I am for the Marvel Gang in the parks. I think there are little kids who would love to pose with them and take pictures. The problem is...themeing...they don't really fit anywhere.

    Unless Proffesor X opens a west coast branch of his school...or maybe a "recruiting station" Where he's looking for mutants to be part of his school. But don't most Marvel heroes live in New York? I can't think of a single one that lives in Cali.

    ...but then again, Ariel doesn't live in California, Radiator Springs is not in California, and I Monstropolis isn't in California either. So why start worrying about theme now?

    In the current comics, the X-Men reside in San Francisco.

    Just sayin'.

    Seriously though, given a choice, I'd much rather they awkwardly fit in DCA than exacerbate Tomorrowland's problems any further. I'm a big Marvel fan, and as much as I want to see the parks take on those characters, I want it done right the first time, too.

    Tarzan's Adventure: A thrilling coaster ride with some chances to get wet.
    China:
    Dragon Coaster: This attraction is not based on a movie. Treasure hunters get more than they bargained for when a family of dragons appear to protect the gold and gems.
    Mulan's Journey: A dark ride based on the film.
    Reflections of China: Same film as in Epcot.
    France:
    The Aristocats: A dark ride based on the film.
    Beauty and the Beast: A spectacular dark ride based on the film. The "Be Our Guest" segment will make this ride a classic.
    Cinderella: A dark ride based on the film.
    Impressions de France: Same film as in Epcot.
    Sleeping Beauty: A dark ride based on the film.
    Germany:
    Alpine Adventure: A coaster ride through some of Germany's mountains.
    Old Mill: A ferris wheel type ride like the one that used to exist in Disneyland Paris, but with greater capacity.
    Rhine River Cruise: Boat ride based on the one planned, but never built for Epcot.
    Snow White Mine Coaster: A coaster ride for young children through the dwarfs' mines.
    Greece:
    Hercules: A dark ride based on the film.
    Mythia Coaster: A coaster featuring figures from Greek mythology.
    India:
    Jungle Book: A dark ride based on the film.

    Darby Gill: A mild coaster dark ride featuring leprechauns and loosely based on the film.
    South America:
    The Emperor's New Groove: A dark ride based on the film.
    Gran Fiesta Tour Starring the Three Caballeros: Same as the Epcot ride.
    Soarin' Over South America: An aerial tour of this continent's majestic landscapes.
    Middle East:
    Aladdin's Carpets: Same as the ride in Florida.
    Aladdin's Flight: Dark ride based on the film.
    Arabian Pots: Aladdin spinning ride similar to Fantasyland Tea Cups.
    United Kingdom:
    Alice's Curious Labyrinth: Same as the attraction in Disneyland Paris.
    101 Dalmatians: A dark ride based on the film.
    Bedknobs and Broomsticks: A dark ride based on the film. Cars would be flying beds.
    Mary Poppins: An E-ticket spectacular dark ride based on the film.
    The Sword in the Stone: A dark ride based on the film. The "Higitus Figitus" segment would be a hoot.
    United States:
    Colonial Square Area:
    Adventures of Icabod Crane: A dark ride based on the classic short.
    America Sings: Updated version of the old attraction.
    The American Adventure: Same attraction as in Epcot.
    Cruise through American Legends: Boat ride featuring Johnny Appleseed, Pecos Bill and others.
    The Wilderness Area:
    Adventures of Davy Crockett: Coaster ride based on the films from the 1950s.
    Bambi: Dark ride based on the film.
    Country Bear Jamboree: A revival of the classic attraction.
    The Fox and the Hound: Dark ride based on the film.
    Pocahontas: A boat ride based on the film.
    Western River Expedition: The classic ride finally gets the green-light.
    The Pacific:
    Lilo and Stitch: A dark ride based on the film.
    Volcano: A coaster ride through a Hawaiian volcano.
    Disney's World Fair would have lands based on countries, thus, making it easy to group new attractions based on older Disney films.
    That seems like a whole lot of dark rides, in my opinion. Also, I don't like how there's some continents (Africa, South America); countries (China, Greece, et cetera); subsections for the United States (Colonial Square, Wilderness, Pacific); and then the region of the Middle East. It doesn't seem consistent. Also, I wouldn't see any reason in having specific countries for only one ride. But that's just my not-so-helpful opinion.
