Okay I have graded all the project proposals we have received thus far. If more are posted, then I will update it. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call me out or ask and I will explain my judging. As you will see, I graded pretty tough, as only the best ideas should ever be allowed into Walt Disney's original park.
Right Ear: Autopia refurb
Originality: 5/10- Race theme is already existent at Walt Disney World and doesn't work well
Creativity: 9/10- Creative ideas, particularly the ride system
Realism: 2/10- Can't happen, ride system doesn't exist and the schematics aren't making sense to me
Fun: 5/10- For thrill seekers, it would be fun and also tame for ones preferring a quieter ride, but since the track has been removed, it could become out of control and painful if you continually hit the walls
Detail: 3/10- Decent amount of detail, especially in queue, but all the details along the ride itself have been replaced by CM booths? Doesn't work for me. Attractions should transport you to another time and place, but this just isn't doing that.
Presentation: 4/10- Hard to picture some aspects, especially how the ride system will work
Overall: 28/60- Decent idea and creative, but the feasibility of it happening and working are slim to none. The racing theme has already been proven to be a failure at Walt Disney World
CazzaCarroll: Winnie the Pooh refurb
Originality: 8/10- Haven't seen this concept proposed before, very unique
Creativity: 5/10- Pretty much a rehash of a part of the new film
Realism: 8/10- Could definitely see this happening
Fun: 6/10- Great for kids and families, although the story seems to be dragged out through the attraction.
Detail: 6/10- Not much detail described. Loved the AA additions though.
Presentation: 11/10- Broken up so it was easy to understand and imagine, extra point for layout art
Overall: 44/60- Really enjoyed it, but it seemed to be an extended version of a small part of the film. With that said, I really liked the additions and addition of AA figures and could easily see this happening at Disneyland
dth316: Indiana Jones Adventure refurb
Originality: 10/10- Haven't seen any of these concepts before, just awesome
Creativity: 9/10- Great ideas, specifically with the snake scene, boulder scene, and branch scene
Realism: 8/10- Would love for it to happen
Fun: 10/10- Every aspect of the remodel would be a benefit and make the attraction more fun
Detail: 10/10- Excellent attention to detail, especially with the queue elements, bridge scene, and falling down the staircase
Presentation: 6/10- Difficult to picture at points, but not terrible
Overall: 53/60- Excellent ideas. I have seen a lot of Indy refurb ideas, but haven't seen these before. Love the attention to detail and it would make the attraction easily the best in the Resort.
Uncle Scrooge: Indiana Jones Adventure refurb
Originality: 4/10- A few good ideas, but a lot of them were the same as dth316's proposal. Also, basically just said "Fix old effects", doesn't work for me
Creativity: 2/10- Again, not very creative, he had maybe 1 or 2 original ideas, the others I have seen on here before
Realism: 8/10- Could easily happen
Fun: 7/10- It's a fun attraction already, and these fixes would make the attraction better
Detail: 6/10- A few good examples of detail, but not totally apparent
Presentation: 4/10- Simple bullet points and not a whole lot of detail in explaining additions
Overall: 31/60- Not totally detailed and a bit hard to understand. Did exactly what I said not to do and just said "Basic painting, cleanup...". Not original ideas, taken from other proposals in the contest and posted over the years.
jsanch2: Matterhorn refurb
Originality: 8/10- Have never seen this type of idea before, very original!
Creativity: 9/10- Creative ideas, particularly for the backstory
Realism: 4/10- Could see this happening, very good and feasible ideas, but it doesn't work with the existing Fantasyland theme. TV screens and bobsled tournaments in a fairy tale village? Doesn't work for me
Fun: 7/10- Great update to a classic attraction. Very different and immersive
Detail: 9/10- The detail in the queue sounds great and very much like Expedition Everest
Presentation: 7/10- Easy to understand attraction, but art would have been helpful for the queue area
Overall: 44/60- Very good ideas and a good eye for detail. The only downside is that it doesn't fit in with the Fantasyland theme. TVs and sponsored bobsled tournaments just don't work with the fairy tale village. That said, it's a very solid and creative idea with only one major hiccup.
basketbuddy101: Indiana Jones refurb
Originality: 9/10- Very very creative proposal. Out of the many Indy ideas I have seen over the years, a number of these ideas are very good and very original
Creativity: 10/10- Awesome use of creativity, specifically with the show script and "Marabic" in the queue, lava fountain effect, treasure chamber room, and extra arrows in the dart hallway
Realism: 7/10- Would absolutely be thrilled if this came to life, but the cost may be a lot for the extra effects
Fun: 9/10- With the amount of detail and little touches added, it would make this already fun attraction even more fun. Awesome!
Detail: 10/10- Exceptional amount of detail. I love the queue upgrades, the touches like the speedometers in the front of the EMVs, and the randomized snake squirts.
Presentation: 12/10- Very easy to understand with lots of detail. Good explanations and organization. 2 points for 2 pieces of concept art
Overall: 57/60- Excellent idea. I would be absolutely thrilled if this happened. Not only does it use an extraordinary amount of detail, it also is very original and exceptionally creative. Awesome!!
Bendall: Space Mountain refurb
Originality: 10/10- Very original ideas. Haven't seen any of these before
Creativity: 9/10- Really great ideas. I really liked the inclusion of actual space travel facts and events. Good background story, too.
Realism: 7/10- Could see this happening
Fun: 7/10- Very fun proposal. The only thing I didn't care for were the on-ride interactive elements. I don't think people would understand that they need to do something in the middle of the ride
Detail: 9/10- Very good detail. I like the restructuring and additions to the queue
Presentation: 10/10- Easy to understand and picture. Good use of photographs and examples
Overall: 52/60- Very good ideas! I really enjoyed the additions and alterations to the queue, especially the inclusion of real facts. The only thing I didn't like were the interactive features on board, but those are just a minor detail. Great job!
williamtheking: Matterhorn refurb
Originality: 9/10- Very good ideas. Haven't seen many of these before
Creativity: 10/10- I really like the snowstorm effect. Very creative, as are the additions to the queue
Realism: 7/10- Could see it happening
Fun: 10/10- Could make the attraction much more fun, especially the special effects that can transform the park
Detail: 8/10- I really liked the detail added to the queue, but the troll seems kind of random in my opinion. I also liked the detail of enclosing much of the moutain.
Presentation: 9/10- Good and clear descriptions, extra point for concept art
Overall: 53/60- Very good and very creative ideas. I loved the interactivity of the entire park and would love to see this happening! Great job.
mickeyfan1: Snow White's Scary Adventures refurb
Originality: 7/10- I've seen a number of these ideas before, but the queue upgrades were very original
Creativity: 6/10- Good ideas, but a lot of the proposal was just saying "fix this, fix that"
Realism: 2/10- Could not see this happening at all. In my opinion, it isn't necessary.
Fun: 8/10- Would make the attraction more fun and more of a spook-house like attraction
Detail: 4/10- Much more detail could have been added
Presentation: 3/10- Hard to picture some ideas, and I'm not sure what you mean by saying "also the mirror on the wall scene has been repaired"?
Overall: 30/60- Some good ideas, but the proposal lacks in detail and creativity. In my opinion, not very many of these upgrades are needed to the attraction
Stitch626626: Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters refurb
Originality: 9/10- Great ideas that I haven't seen before, nice job!
Creativity: 9/10- Liked the use of characters from the TV show. I also liked the better plot line that you created
Realism: 6/10- Would love for it to happen, but don't believe that Disney will do it
Fun: 8/10- Very fun additions, specifically the city scene and use of AA figures.
Detail: 9/10- Great attention to detail, specifically with the combination of 3D and flat backgrounds for more depth and making the targets more inconspicuous.
Presentation: 6/10- Difficult to picture at points, but not terrible
Overall: 47/60- Really great ideas and would definitely be a big step up. I like the use of AA figures and backgrounds to be more immersive. My big complaint is that people who aren't that aware of the TV show may be lost with the addition of the characters, but the queue upgrades were also great.
hawk671: The Haunted Mansion refurb
Originality: 6/10- Some good and original ideas, but many I have seen before
Creativity: 7/10- Some really creative ideas, specifically in the exit crypt and Seance Circle.
Realism: 8/10- Could see this happening, as it's really just a lot of minor effects with an enhanced sound system
Fun: 10/10- Would make the attraction very fun and a lot more frightening, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
Detail: 8/10- Good attention to detail, especially with the outdoor cemetery
Presentation: 10/10- Good layout and easy to understand. Thank you for the visuals, but I wish you would have had some of your excellent concept art!
Overall: 49/60- I really like a majority of the ideas, but I also felt like many of them had been proposed on these boards before. With that said, I really loved many of the small additions like the hands in the crypt, Stretching room sounds a la WDW, and the addition of the Hatbox Ghost.
MouseEars: Storybook Land refurb
Originality: 8/10- A lot of new scenes, but some I have seen proposed before
Creativity: 5/10- Some nice ideas, but I enjoy Storybook Land because we just see the character's homes and not just recreate scenes from the film. I don't like having the characters included, as it should just be the structures
Realism: 3/10- Can't see this happening because it would get rid of some scenes like the Mills to be replaced with films that many people have never seen or have no emotional connection to.
Fun: 8/10- For kids it would be fun to see their favorite characters, but overall detracts from the immersion of being secluded in these villages
Detail: 7/10- Good attention to detail, but I don't think all these scenes can fit the in the spaces you specified.
Presentation: 10/10- Good presentation layout and great visuals to help picture the scenes
Overall: 41/60- Some decent ideas, but I have seen many of them already. I also don't agree with the inclusion of characters, but it was a very creative and detailed proposal
DisneyKid1994: Indiana Jones Adventure refurb
Originality: 7/10- A lot of these concepts have been rehashed before, but I did like the change of the Bug and Rat rooms
Creativity: 6/10- Again, some very good ideas, but some have been proposed before. The Everlasting Power sequence was very creative, but I didn't like how most of the proposal was just "fix this and fix that"
Realism: 8/10- Could see a lot of this happening
Fun: 9/10- They would definitely make the attraction more fun and immersive.
Detail: 8/10- Some very good attention to detail, especially with the Cavern scene and added Marabic to the queue
Presentation: 5/10- Difficult to picture at points
Overall: 43/60- Some nice ideas that would make the ride better. I liked the addition of more Marabic and the decoder cards and the switching of the Bug and Rat rooms, but I thought that more detail could have been added. Overall it was a solid proposal.
