I wanted to get some ideas for 2 different things. One is ideas for the 3rd park. I posted most of this info on another thread about creating attractions based on older Disney movies.
Tomorrowland has been outdated for some time - this might be the perfect spot for some Marvel based attractions. I don't know much about Marvel Comics, but I can see a World of Tomorrow where humans get superhuman powers - think Spiderman.
Ideas for attractions based on other Disney films could be used in the infamous "3rd Gate." I would call the third park "Disney's World Fair".
Walt Disney had such a great impact on the 1964 World's Fair that a park celebrating the cultural and storytelling traditions of different nations would be a great way to pay tribute to Walt's participation in '64 Fair, and provide a great theming vehicle for new attractions. This park would be like Epcot's World Showcase, but there would be lots of rides as well as restaurants.
Animal Expedition: A water ride through a turbulent river featuring lots of different animals. Think of a cross between Jungle Cruise and Splash Mountain.
The Lion King: A dark ride with culminating in a spectacular musical number of "Circle of Life" in the great tradition of Splash Mountain.
Tarzan's Adventure: A thrilling coaster ride with some chances to get wet.
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.
The Aristocats: A dark ride based on the film.

Disney's World Fair would have lands based on countries, thus, making it easy to group new attractions based on older Disney films.
1. What do folks think about a World's Fair theme for a potential 3rd gate? If you like it, what attractions would you have?
2. Do you think Marvel inspired rides could spruce up Tomorrowland? Would Marvel and Tomorrowland be a good fit?
