    Marvel-Pixar Indoor/Outdoor Water Park in Anaheim: brainstorm

    Brainstorming Time!

    --Open 365 days a year because even S. Californians would enjoy swimming in February.
    --Ratatouille sewer ride on foam books. Ends in Paris.
    --Incredibles ride in the villain's tunnels with that great music.
    --Cars race on rafts shaped a little like the cars.
    --Spiderman water coaster with hills and dips that replicate swinging.

    That's all I got.

    How on earth would these fit together under one umbrella theme?

    I agree. These seem like alright ideas on their own, but cohesively... Hmm.

    Well, since Disney doesn't take fan ideas they can't make them unless you become an Imagineer.
    Keep the Marvel ideas comin' but don't let Disney have 'em!

    I get the concept of a sunk cost, but we're talkin' about 11.4 billion here.

    So theme?
    OK, Pixar and Marvel characters were visiting Raging. . . mean Wild Waters waterpark together to celebrate Bob Iger's birthday when a freak hurricane/blizzard came in and added snow and big waves. Oh, and a loop. The characters found that they could all be friends as long as they rode on water park rides and net profits increased each quarter. But look out for Magneto, Paul Pressler and Syndrome who shoot "acid metal Gap" water on guests throughout the park!

    Is that really messier than DCA?
    Theme Schmeme!
    Who said it has to be a themed water park?
    What's the stoooooreeeeeee?! Waaahhhhhh!
    Insert voice of Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog: "The story is, 'Get a life!'"
    (Just kidding--really!)
    It's just a waterpark hosted by Pixar, Marvel, and Hannah Montana. Those wacky teens will eat it up!

    Hmmm. How could I make it even worse?

    Good one.

    Or
    Waterpark:
    Everything
    Super
    To
    Come
    Out
    Today

    Like WDW's EPCOT, it'll be an actual city of tomorrow, but Walt's dream will be modified just a touch to reflect today's market realities and guests' desire for waterslides.

    But seriously,
    wouldn't it be great if there were a place (a waterpark, a shopping mall, a Disney-Ikea combo--whatever) where Pixar & Marvel ideas could go and not affect Disney's castle parks?

    I like Buzz Lightyear and his fun, addictive ride in Tomorrowland, and Woody fits in Frontierland, but Pixar ideas could use a place of their own.

    That place is called Disney California Adventure.

    I don't see why everyone hates DCA so much. The thing has a theme, kind of. With a little money (just a few billion or so, only Iger's pay for about a month) they could fix it.

    And I guarantee, the Imagineers probably had some brilliant overarching plan that got scrapped at the last minute to build Iger's genius idea of:

    "Let's throw in some Pixar and stuff to appeal to five year olds, and then we'll build a water ride with a river right next to a barren desert with an airport, and make some sort of random paved area, oh and a Hollywood set is just a bit away. Oh, and let's have a shoestring budget. That sounds good."

    I don't hate DCA. I was just referencing how almost all of the Pixar rides are in that park.

    Lil FYI, Mike Eisner was still running the company when DCA was created, not Bob Iger. Also, dunno why Pixar stuff apparently only appeals to 5 year olds. I always thought they were loved by people of all age groups... kinda like classic Disney.

    In any case, there wasn't originally much Pixar in the park. The only thing I can think of off the top of my head is It's Tough to Be a Bug, which falls more into the category of "family-friendly" than "kids only." Then came A Bug's Land, which is definitely geared toward young'uns. But since then, most of the new (permanent) Pixar elements haven't been especially infantile.
