I've read quite a few threads/replies from folks who think that there's too much Pixar at Disneyland recently. Many have said that they don't like how there are so many rides themed after recent movies (whether Disney or Pixar, on this I agree). But, the subject of movie-themed rides and Pixar always seems to end up being tied together some how. While it's true that many of the most recent new rides or ride make-overs have been themed around Pixar characters/movies, I don't think that necessarily warrants the rash of "Pixar hater" comments/topics.
I think we ALL must face the fact that Pixar IS Disney and that the characters in ALL the Pixar movies from Toy Story to UP should and will be considered classics in the future.
Remember folks, many of the rides in Fantasyland are based on early Disney movies (Peter Pan, Dumbo, Snow White, etc.) and the movies weren't that old when the rides were built. So, why are there so many people grinding their teeth about all the Pixar-themed attractions? As part of the Disney franchise, shouldn't they get their fair share of the pie?
Now, as far as an "OVERABUNDANCE" of Pixar (Flik's, Carsland, TSMM, BLAB, ITTBAB, MI, Nemo, and Pixar Parade)....that's another subject. I really don't think it's TOO MUCH.....yet. Again, Pixar IS Disney, and as such shouldn't they get their respective lands/attractions?
Your comments/thoughts please....
