A Disneyland with just original rides would be too spectacular, and a Disneyland with all unoriginal rides would also be not to impressive. So my question is, what is the right ratio for you?
While I am not exactly asking for a number, I want to known your opinion of where the line stands in your mind of too much or too little. How do you feel the lands should work? Should certain lands be character free and other lands be just characters? Should all lands have a mix? How do you feel about it?
For me, I believe that Fantasyland should be mainly characters only with a few exceptions like Matterhorn, and Small World. Small World is boarder line characters as they are more incorporated instead of character centric. But besides that, I feel that each land should have a decent mix with most a larger majority of the E-Tickets being original and the smaller D-Tickets and lower being majority character.
This being said, I also feel that the character based attractions should not be "book reports." They should not retell the story. Things like Toy Story Mania, Star Tours, and Indiana Jones are excellent representatives of this. They immerse you into the world of the characters instead of retelling a tale. I would consider attractions like that to have unique storyline, and for me if 90% of all Disney attractions were to have a unique storyline, with a good mix of characters and non characters, I would truly be happy.
So I ask you...where does the line stand for you? What is too much and what is too little?
