    Why was "The Mickey Mouse Revue" Never Realized for Disneyland?

    In 1962, Walt had an interview in which he stated he would like an AA attraction that involved a variety of different Disney characters but he didn't know when that would do it. The attraction was realized in 9171 for the Magic Kingdom and later moved to Tokyo, why was it that Disneyland never got their own version of the attraction, it would have easily enough been fitted inside the Fantasyland Theater.

    Perhaps they wanted WDW to have a few original ideas - just for them.

    Unlike today ... Disney gets an idea ... and before you know .. it's cloned for all their McDisney parks.

    WDW's "mk" park had a few "exclusives" that DL never had:

    * Swan Boats
    * If you had wings
    * Liberty Square (land) - with Hall of Presidents
    * Mickey Mouse Revue
    * Circle-vision - Magic carpet 'round the world
    * And DL & WDW did a switch .... and CoP became an exclusive to WDW .. and does to this day

    And ... oh .. they came so close to one awesome "exclusive" - IF ONLY! -

    *Western River Expedition

    The more "Exclusives" each park has ... the more appealing it is to make the effort to spend the money and see those parks. But when they are all the same .. with all the same attractions .. why bother?

    So does that mean we are getting The Mickey Mouse Revue in the year 9171? Darnet Doc, stop buiilding time machines! Instead you should make something that keeps humans alive forever and never makes them old, that's something more useful then ruining the surprises in the future.

    It was never very popular in Florida.

    The characters have a far better following in Tokyo.
