    I agree with all but Pirates, and I think e all know that Pirates won't be changing any time soon. There are too many people that have "grown up" with Captain Jack Sparrow and the Black Pearl being all they know of Pirates of the Caribbean because they have never been to a Disney Park.

    Yeah, Pooh won't change either. They slotted that film next to Harry Potter... practically a death sentence.

    I defiantly think that the Alice in Wonderland eyesore is something that could/should be fixed within the next year. That area is my favourite part of Fantasyland, and I hope that an attractive solution can be found
    Can't wait for December 2012 when I FINALLY get back to Disneyland Resort! My first trip in over 7 years

    One for the Road: Return shows to Fantasyland Theater
    1. Probably a new parade similar to the Main St. Electrical Parade which would be fine.
    2. Not going to happen. Pirates seem to be more popular with the movie characters and they are part of cannon now.
    3. Pooh does not need to match the movie as much as just get some upgrades. My vote would be for figures with a few more movements added in.
    4. Yes. Maybe something that also allows the ride to run when it rains.
    5. Does not need to by a 4D film, could be another dark ride or interactive adventure of some sort.
    6. Yes. Something with WallE or the Incredibles would be nice if they want a character overlay.
    7. I want to see a show that uses branching footage so the audience somehow chooses the outcome, or something that uses AA or other theater effects. WallE would be a choice to me.
    8. Love the Cheveron talking cars commercials, but a new theme would be fine.
    9. Maybe.
    10. I would love a ride D-E ticket, but they should keep part of teh area so they can do shows like the Pirates preview and the Family Fun Days. The park is getting so crowded and they need room to do one-of-a-kind events.


    11. Upgrade Fantasy Land attractions in the way Snow White and Alice have been with video projections and effects.

    Re: Top Ten Things to do with Disneyland before the 60th Anniversary

    I just saw Mickey's Philharmagic two months ago on my first visit to WDW. LOVED IT!!! That would be awesome to get that over in DL.

    I love the idea proposed here on another board about a TRON light cycle attraction on the People Mover track. But anything TRON in Tomorrowland would be cool.

    Re: Top Ten Things to do with Disneyland before the 60th Anniversary

    They shouldn't have to wait for the 60th to do those things. Has Disney stooped so low now that these types of things should only be expected for a major anniversary?

    Besides I would be surprised if Disney does anything major for the 60th. It probably will be a big deal but don't expect as much hoopla as they did for the 50th, although it will likely be more than what they did for the 55th which was next to nothing.

    Re: Top Ten Things to do with Disneyland before the 60th Anniversary

    Is there any room to add any new attractions to Toontown? Is it possible to make a second pathway into that land from the Thunder Ranch area?

    Can you obviously tell I've never been to Disneyland? I hate relying on the kooky park maps to get a basic idea of the layout.

    I'd be happy doing all of this within 15 years. Asking for all of that, you may as well ask for invisibility and the ability to fly.
