A couple years ago, I was watching a YouTube video of the announcement of the Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage.
Naturally the comments were a flurry of activity, some were excited to see the Subs coming back, others were disappointed that it was going to be Finding Nemo themed.
One such comment showed disappointment in what the user called the “Pixarification” of Tommorowland and suggested that Disney build a land devoted solely to Pixar Animation.
I have decided to do a bit of armchair Imagineering and design one, however I’m going to take it a step further and design a whole park. I’ve come up with a couple ideas but I’m still a little stuck, if you have any ideas, please post them. When I have enough I will post another article describing the entire park. If I use your idea, I will give you credit for it.
This is what I have so far.
The Park will be comprised of six areas; one of these areas will be modeled after the Pixar Animation Studio and will serve as the Main Street of the park. I would like some sort of attraction showing the history of Pixar leading up to it’s affiliation with Disney, as well as a Main Street Cinema of sorts, featuring some of the shorts that Pixar made before Toy Story.
The other five areas will be based on the following films:
I need suggestions on Attractions, Stores, Restaurants, and the Themed Areas, everything from what they look like, to the story behind it.
I do plan on importing a few attractions from other parks, like the Monsters Inc. Flashlight Tag from Tokyo Disney, I will not copy rides from neighboring parks, I am placing this at Disneyland, CA, so Buzz Light-year Astro Blasters, Toy Story Midway Mania, and The Submarine Voyage are out (I'm imagining this at the Disneyland Resort in California, for future reference). I will not import any rides from the Toy Story Playland at the Disney Studios in Paris, so don’t bother suggesting it.
I will take questions and will answer them as quickly as I can, I don't want any comments that are jus "Dude! That's an awsome Idea!" you can say that but please post an idea with it.
Please be as creative as you possibly can. Other than what I have above, you’re only limit is your imagination. That’s what Armchair Imagineering is, it’s only going as far as the Blue Sky Process.
