Every time I look at a satellite image of Disneyland, I think what a massive amount of space Nemo, Autopia and the old Motor Boat Cruise take up. An entire NOS and Splash Mountain could fit in that space. Just the queue and loading area for Autopia itself could be replaced by a Space Mountain sized attraction. Similarly, the Subs lagoon could fit Splash Mountain.
Nemo takes up a large amount of land under Autopia. Then there is Autopia, which dominates the land. I understand it's a great ride for kids, but the very nature of a driving attraction requires a lot of concreted space. There's the large unused MBC land. Finally, there is the wasted People Mover and the Monorail. Ultimately, in 15-20 years, if we have a 3rd park, the Monorail could/will become a true transportation system (though I know capacity and city issues exist).
So my question: what is sacred in that area and what will ultimately become of the space? Is the Subs lagoon sacred? Is the recent Nemo attraction a long term one? Will we always require an Autopia for kids? Can the extra loops of the Monorail ultimately be removed? Could this become another land that blends between Tomorrow and Fantasy?
