    More Star Wars themed attractions

    It would seem, with the opening of Star Tours in mind, that Disney is truly wasting a huge opportunity by not investing in more attractions with that valuable commodity. Where is the Star Wars dark ride? Star Wars flume ride? The Star Wars themed land? I would take a Star Wars themed land over both Carsland and Undersea Adventures combined. I mean why the hell are they making Carsland and not Star wars land!?

    Um... Is this a joke?

    How on earth would Star Tours fit into DCA?? It fits into Tomorrowland by a stretch.

    Star Tours is represented enough in the Parks. An attraction and small show is just enough. Why don't we let other films that deserve recognition and some original ideas into the parks?

    Re: More Star Wars themed attractions

    If they were to build a new Star Wars attraction, then the only logical place to put it would either be Tomorrowland or Hollywoodland. Star Tours is enough though, and puts the perfect amount of Star Wars into the park. I personally can't wait to see the Adventures Continue. And no offense, but Star Wars Land does not fit in with DCA. Although Carsland may seem like it doesn't fit in DCA to some people, to me it does and I would much prefer it.

    As much as I've always wanted a Star Wars Coaster/dark ride we just don't have the room plus it already has a store/ride/show I think other rides need to be made before another new Star Wars ride is put into the parks

    Turn Tomorrowland into Star Wars Land. Leave Space Mountain as-is, but stick in another couple Star Wars rides.

    They can put a Death Star inside space mountain and give the cars more of an X-wing look. I always wondered how Space Mountain would be with the John Williams score playing.

    Re: More Star Wars themed attractions

    Why not just leave Tomorrowland the way it is and keep Star Tours 2? I'm a geek and I think that Star Tours is enough. We need a new Tomorrowland before anything else related to George Lucas's vision of space is brought into the park.

    Re: More Star Wars themed attractions

    I'd rather they just make a Star Wars theme park like what they showed in that "fun" concept art not too long ago that had the Jedi Temple as the park icon. At least I'd much prefer that over a Marvel park. I do agree that Star Wars has plenty of reprsentation in Tomorrowland as it is. It doesn't need another attraction any more than Indiana Jones doesn't need another ride.

    You gotta admit, a mine cart chase ride based on the scene in Temple of Doom would be pretty cool! And they planned something like it at one point as well...

    And this is based on what data?

    Star Tours belongs in Adventureland, not the land of the future.

    Re: More Star Wars themed attractions

    Star Wars remains popular, if not even more popular than ever. And anyone, including Disney, is a fool to think otherwise. It's not just nerds and geeks either. My 8 year old nephew, who is probably raised in the most mainstream, non-nerd environment possible, loves Star Wars. He and his classmates were introduced to Star Wars from the Cartoon Network Clone Wars cartoon and they are hooked. I keep passing along my old toys from the 80's and he is thrilled. Not to mention the movies are coming to Blu-ray this fall and relaunched into theaters next year in 3D. Star Wars weekend is very popular at WDW too.

    I know Disney (and the theme park industry in general) is envious of what Universal Orlando is doing with the Potter land at Islands of Adventure but they have only themselves to blame. They have had the rights to the biggest franchise in movie history since the mid 80s that is endless in what you could do with in a theme park setting and basically have only done 1 simulator, 1 show and 1 store (and the events during Star Wars Weekends in WDW). Not exactly using the property to it's fullest potential. Star Wars can support it's own park, let alone it's own land.
