    Replacement for HISTA

    Originally, I had thought about using 3-D to create a DisneyQuest-style simulator for extinct attractions. Another possible space for this type of an attraction is StarTours.

    But it occurred to me, especially if Tomorrowland were reimagined as a themepark/DTD of the future, HISTA would be great as Tomorrowland 2055's preview center for Tomorrowland 2065. Do like Disneyland did for Pirates in the Tencennial show. You could do a fun show with behind-the-scenes footage of the Imagineers working on the design, take us on a virtual tour of the exterior and queue, and then have the "ride-through."

    Meh, I want some kind of a 3-D show. I like HISTA, it's just that it gets old after you've been on it a few times. Why not have different movies every year?

    In ToonTown, maybe. But in terms of theme, and in terms of physical dimensions required to put on Ph... no.

    Sorry, maybe I was unclear, the building/queue would be rethemed as a preview center, and the preview center show I described, including the ride through, would be 3-D.

    I have seen HISTA each time i visit the park and i agree that it is getting a bit stale, especially since the original film ( and only decent one) was made so long ago.

    Maybe if they updated it every two years, it would bring some freshness to Tomorrowland that is lacking.

    PLEASE, just TAKE IT OUT!!! It is SO boring. Its just appalling! True, I have never been one for 3-D attractions, but still. The "It's Tough To Be A Bug", and "Muppet Vision 3-D" were 100 times better.

    Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
    Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
    Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
    Marge: Pink.
    Homer: D'oh!

    I'd prefer an all-new attraction. Put something in there that isn't a 3D movie... I dont know if it's small in there for a ride, but do SOMETHING that isn't 3D. I can't tolerate anymore 3D attractions! Those glasses are annoying and give me a headache.. the only one I ever see anymore is the "It's Tough to Be A Bug" one and only because the special effects (bug spray, black widows (!), Flick AA, HOPPER AA!) are just too good to pass up.

    Simple. Money.

    The standerd cost of making a episode of a Sci-fi is easily $100,000 and all that is spent just tp be shown on a realitly small TV screen. When you get a screen as big as HISTA's, the resolution of the effects has to be more detailed. Adding more effects like the "rats" under the seats and it becomes even more costly. The production cost could easy be $7 -$10 million per film per year. After the math doing the math in my head that's $70-$100 million that could be spent on an new E-ticket ride. Even if a new film is done every 2 years that still $50 million that could at least pay for half a E-ticket.

    Personally, I like to see that money being put into the PeopleMover track.

    I agree, Philharmagic!!! Ihave heard lots of great feedback on this show.

    They should make a new show that has the timelessness of Captain E.O. It had a great message and you could watch it more than once without being bored. HISTA was vaguely amusing the first time that I saw it at WDW, but I didn't really want to see it again when I went to DL. It is very disappointing that Captain E.O. was displaced with something so inane. How amusing is it really to be "sneezed on" by a giant dog?
