    New skyway from DCA to Disneyland Park

    Wouldn't it be neat if they built an all new skyway that went from DCA all the way over to the Magic Kingdom? Your thoughts? It could go from Paradise Pier over to Fantasyland, or Tomorrowland....

    Your thoughts?

    Wow! from DCA to the Magic Kindom in FL???? That WOULD be amazing!

    But, yes, it would be extremely cool if they built a skyway that crossed dca and disneyland. Great idea!

    it would only take 28 hours to get there, too. No food or bathroom breaks, so better take care of that beforehand...

    1) ick.... skyway was ugly and the park is better with it gone...

    2) How are you going to do ticket checks... Sorry, can't ride unless you have a hopper? This is why the monorail doesn't have DCA stops.

    And do you just shut it down on days DL is at capacity...

    3) Yuck..... do not like the idea at all.

    Instead of slamming the idea, how about offering constructive criticism?

    Many of those issues mentioned could easily be fixed. Obviously, the 'new skyway' would operate in one direction if DL was at capacity, and guests would only be allowed on with park hoppers. Why else would you use the skyway except to get from park to park. That would be the point.

    Personally, Id love to see some wort of free park-to-park transport as if you have a park-hopper, it can be a hassel getting from one park to the other on high-capacity days.

    What if the "buckets" were color desiginated for each park, that way those riding from DCA will simply float on through DL without stopping, and vice versa buckets leaving from DL. Each would be a round trip.

    And there could be a special "bucket" for those that do indeed have the hopper tickets or annual passes that could stop in each park.

    I think it's a great idea.

    No, there are no DCA stops because they were to cheap to put one in. They used to have a deal where, for a couple bucks, you could get on the Monorail at the hotel stop and just ride it around. Ticketing issues didn't seem to be a problem then, why would they now? Just put a turn style at the exit to the station, if you get off and don't have the right media to get in, they put you back on the train. Problem solved.

    It really would be nice to have some form of transportation from one park to the other. That walk from Paradise Pier to Small World is pretty daunting, especially if you've already been in the parks for several hours. I suppose a subway is a bit cost prohibitive (even if they had built it before they built the park on top) for such a short distance, but it sure would have been nifty.

    How's this?

    I hate every single thing about the idea.

    Skyway was ugly, low capacity, and boring. The only time I enjoyed it was when I was 10 and could drop things on people, and when I was a teen and wanted a bit of unsupervised time with a girlfriend..... neither things I'ld like to see come back to DLR.

    If walking across the park is a hastle, how is waiting in line for an hour with all the 10 y/o that want to drop stuff on peope and the teens that want to do nasty things going to be any less of a hastle?

    How is showing people even more back stage areas a good thing? Oh look, Mickey on a smoke break.

    How is stringing more big ugly wires and poles over the resort a good thing?


    Okay...... I'll switch to being positive....

    Well, I think it is a great idea if you can figure out a way to make it totally invisable and can block views of all backstage areas and can remove the need to worry about tickets and can make sure it never has a line and can make sure everyine on the ride is superviesed at all times and can make sure there is no liability risk of idiots jumping out then trying to sue Disney for damages..... If you can do all that, I love the idea.

    Why? Some, and I mean some (Not the majority) of the parents today would just tell their kids to go over the side. I've seen it happen before.

    Oooo! Have each seat become a Port-a-potty.

    I think it's a great suggestion. In fact, I bet TDA would want to make it one way from Disneyland feeding guests into DCA.

    I wonder what theyre ever gonna do with the original fantasyland skyway station. It just sits there all day untouched. They should make it into a shop or sumthin. The Skyway Shop.
