    I wouldn't mind seeing a super-long Speedramp connecting the 2nd story of Starcade with Sound Stage 17. The two appear to be in line with each other.

    If a transport system between the two parks becomes a reality, I would think that the monorail wouldbe the method that carries the most people. On the other hand, a skyway would be lots of fun!

That would be glorious overwhen of the entire resort and I would LOVE IT!
    Exceptional idea, MonteJ! A PeopleMover with a loading/unloading loop in each park would be one very cool option.

    TDS, the best second gate in the entire world (sorry outdated, attractionless Epcot), holds its own. The OLC markets TDS as "Tokyo DisneySea" not "Tokyo Disney Resort" They don't even allow you to park hop so that you spend a full day at each park before parkhopping on your 3rd or 4th day. The WDC was like "ehh its just an extension of Disneyland." It is NOT. It's a new park, that needs its own identity.

    We do not need to connect the two parks, no thanks.
    Thoughts that are very worthy of consideration, ICe101. I'm not considering a transport between parks an attempt to incease attendance. Rather, I see it as a fun and convenient option for crossing parks. Walking across the esplanade is fun, too.

    Currently, one can board the monorail at it's Downtown Disney location (beside Rainforest Cafe) and travel into Disneyland (departing at the tomorrowland station) completely skipping the park entry gates... provided that you have a DL pass or proof of single day admission to get in. If an added station were place inside DCA, one would require admitance proof, same as Disneyland.

    Walking is certainly beneficial in terms of healthy exercise. Disneyland could certainly use more gates. Poor DCA... it would be a dream for it to become so popular that additional gates would be needed.

    Absolutely, merlinjones. Skyway would be a blast for families and individuals alike.

    Why can't we just walk across the esplanade?

    The Starcade and Sound Stage 17 would be excellent places to load and unload at the two parks. In terms of transport mode between the two, I'm thinking either a moving walkway (such as that at Universal Hollywood)or else an electric railway ((like DisneySea).

    Because you would reduce the risk of somebody stepping on your feet.

    As if walking the entire 100 or so feet between the parks is not convient enough....

    I'm a spoiled brat. While crossing the esplanade once, I came within inches of almost having my toes ran over by a renegade parent pushing a stoller.

    All that sitting gives one a sore tushy. Need to cut back on "Sore-in' " Over California!

    unlike WDW where each park is separated by miles ..... it seems silly to have something connect DL to DCA when the distance to each park is a 60 second walk.

    I'm actually rather partial to the current mode; walking.

    I wouldn't mind the Monorail stopping inside DCA before heading to Downtown Disney. Of course, they would have to make it the same admission as for Disneyland....which I wouldn't mind either!

    Hidden Mickey - Historical fiction about Walt that mixes action and mystery with time travel and fantasy! Tweens to adults will enjoy these novels. And now, three gamebooks to play in Disneyland, DCA and WDW Magic Kingdom!


    Check out my six action/adventure novels about Walt's lost diary and his epic quest. Visit my blog page!

    A Mary Poppins umbrella inspired version of the skyway.

    Monorail can go pretty slow at times, too. Just the loading and waiting alone can take up to 15-20 minutes. With a PeopleMover you'd constantly be moving. So, unless the attraction breaks down it would be faster.
