    The REAL question - if a PeopleMover is used to connect all the areas of the Anaheim resort district, would that make a return of the old Tomorrowland attraction obsolete??

    Perhaps a preparation for a third gate in the future?

    Why don't they worry first about getting a peoplemover where it belongs- in Tomorrowland!

    In WDW the Monorail is not found in the park but used exclusivley for transportation. If a Peoplemover were built to the parking structure then I would guess that we will never see it return to Tomorrowland. At least not as another Peoplemover.

    That's why they're planning on building a structure there in the first place.

    Voters approving a project is one thing.

    Said project passing the EIR, budget, multi-agency approvals, land aquisitions and the ever present enviro-whacko's (just to name a few) is quite another...

    Pipe-dream at best...

    Yeah, and you are referring to our current "normal" trains that lumber along at what seems to be a snails pace yet still manage to kill way too many people per year. Of course, most folks that are killed by trains are Darwin Award winners in their own right. Walking on the tracks with headphones on, driving around the lowered crossing arms or stopping their cars on the tracks while in traffic.

    What do you think will happen when said trains are doing 80 to 100 mph???

    Think of it more as the Tomorrowland attraction was the genesis / prototype for something having a real world use in getting people to Disneyland. That is a tribute, not only to the attraction itself, but to it's creators.

    And, for all of you who are saying "the high speed train may never happen" so don't build a connection to ARTIC station are being shortsighted.

    The ARTIC concept is to:

    • Provide easy connections between the Platinum Triangle, Anaheim Resort, the southern California region and beyond
    • Facilitate convenient travel via train, intercity bus, taxi, car, or local transit
    • Accommodate high speed train service infrastructure

    The initial phase of the ARTIC development will be relocating the existing Metrolink station from its current location at Angel Stadium at Anaheim to the ARTIC site across from Honda Center.

    Re: Elevated Peoplemover System from the Pond/Rail Station to Disneyland

    If a People Mover type of transportation was used to shuttle people from a high speed train stop into the park, I would use that train without even blinking an eye. I think that would be so much fun and so exciting. I hope this actually pulls through!

    Why not move people where they need to go, instead of around a demonstration track?

    Here's a crazy idea. Use the people mover track for the autopia, then you guys can finally repurpose the autopia land.

    Not if the train tracks are totally grade separated, with a bridge or underpass at highways and totally fenced off from pedestrians and most animals.

    Those accidents and "suicide by train" incidents are the result of having hundreds of streets and highways crossing the tracks, easy access for the foolish or despondent. Doesn't help that they give drivers licenses to many people who shouldn't have them, and illegal immigrants don't worry about little niceties like a drivers license or knowing the proper rules of the road.

    They might be able to leave old tracks alone under the theory of being 'grandfathered' to the original rules in place at time of construction, but the HSR has to be totally protected.

    Re: Elevated Peoplemover System from the Pond/Rail Station to Disneyland

    Part of the expense of the CA HSR will be all the grade seperations that will be made. It won't go by at 100 mph with just crossing arms.

    The first stretch to open will be from Union Station to Anaheim. So even if it never goes from Sacramento to San Diego (long term plan), it will funnel people down to Anaheim from LA a lot faster than Interstate 5.
