    Not a ride....... It's been mentioned quite a few times on here.

    As I mentioned, the PeopleMover tracks are so behind in accordance to health and safety regulations that it would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to retrofit them. It is definitely not worth the investment, especially when that money is being put toward R&D and original attractions. Bringing back the PeopleMover is not as easy as putting up some railings and throwing some ride vehicles on the track. It would cost so much money that WDI feels could be spent in much better ways.

    All I ask for is patience. As I said earlier, it's hard to be patient and positive when the future is unknown, but the tides are turning.

    In a different matter, I wonder if the Donald Sundries Shop(in the Disneyland Hotel) will get an official sign on the store.

    Why are you assuming that there is no replacement? Or that they don't have a plan that's even better? Or that their plan doesn't involve the entire land and they need it out of the way? Or the hundreds of possibilities that are positive that don't involve the PM track.

    As disneylandfan95 mentions, the PM track just isn't going to happen. It's ridiculously costly to retrofit it. Even "rerouting" it is astronomically expensive as any new track would have to be up to code and having up to code bits connecting to out of code bits... nope, that just doesn't happen, so they would end up having to retrofit the old bits they leave too. We really need to just face the fact, not rumor, that the PM track isn't going to happen.

    But that doesn't mean that there isn't a plan. It doesn't mean that something isn't coming. It just means that the PM track as it stands is not going to be making any sort of comeback. Sometimes it's just cheaper and better to demo the whole thing and start from scratch with something cooler. Just because we haven't heard about something doesn't mean it isn't in an advanced stage of planning. At this point, Disney is planning decades out. They know what the pieces to the puzzle are and when they need to fit them together. We don't. We, unfortunately, just have to have some patience and agonize over what might be.

    But I think I can safely say that by the end of the next 3 years, opinions of Disney will have changed significantly.

    Hundreds of thousands...?

    They spent MILLIONS restoring the submarine voyage, and millions retrofitting Paradise Bay for WOC. I'm sure a few hundred thousand dollars would be chump change, especially if it meant the return of the beloved people mover tracks.

    Exactly!! I can't stress this enough. A lot of people don't understand just how much freedom Disney management is giving WDI. Many of you will be shocked to see what the current team of Imagineers can come up with when they are given freedom to do what they think is best for the Park. I guarantee it.

    Not when that money could be spent toward something new, fresh, and never seen before in a theme park....

    I believe it is meant that it would be hundreds of thousands just to make it the people mover again, not to make it a new ride.

    Re: Disneyland Resort Project Tracker 3

    It would just be nice to have a peoplemover like ride, but anyway...
    More on the Disneyland hotel though, I don't think they will replace the carpeting on stairs that lead to parking garage, since the stairs replaced the escalators sometime back(not sure when though). I do not know if they will retheme and/or rename Goofy's Kitchen, the coffee house, the Fantasia store and Donald's sundries or not. Al Lutz reported sometime back that Steakhouse 55 will be rethemed/renamed to "Walt's". Finally I like to ask are the statues of Mickey and Minnie in the Lobby being Scrapped or being kept(the same goes for the outdoor Mickey statue)?

    Oh my goodness! Oh my goodness! Oh my goodness! Ah, I had nooo clue Disney had such big plans for Disneyland! Maybe. I reaaaally hope they release information at D23. Too bad I can't make it): Definitely keep me updated.

    I'm really hoping for something new and fresh- some new rides or something awesome. Tomorrowland and Frontierland are lacking. Come on, Disney, please do this right!

    Not being in California or in touch with anyone I initially knew in WDI I can't verify anything you say so I'm not sure what I trust at this point. Anywho I definitly understand your perspective and if its all true it makes sense and WDI is certainly making the right decision from a logical standpoint.

    It just kinda stings on an emotional level. I can certainly see the track leaving if its irreparable and the park needs to move on. But I don't really see how the track leaves making way for any kind of real new attraction as I don't think the peoplemover really takes up a significant amount of buildable space. As odd as it seems at least o me the sadness in its removal comes because it wouldn't have been necessary if better decisions had been made regarding the tracks use years ago and the ride could simply have been grandfathered in like the subs.

    Hopefully we do hear something good announced either at this D23 or perhaps after the completion of Carsland. I dunno about these Stark Expo rumors though. I suppose its cause I've lost all faith in any kind of expo being good. Stark Expo was flashy in the movie but had no real substance to it other then being a cool place to explode robots. I am curious to see what WDI does next, with Disneyland I'll be honest and admit the park is so good I'd be happy with mostly cosmetic enhancements (making Tomorrowland prettier, adding the balcony fantasmic seating, mainstreet arcades, etc)

    Re: Disneyland Resort Project Tracker 3

    Out of all the rumors and speculation listed on here, there's one concrete project missing from the tracker as far as I can tell.

    The Matterhorn!!! Updates on that project would be greatly appreciated especially when they plan on coming back up from a refurb and when they are planning on going back down as well.
    "Up" is a relative concept. It has no intrinsic value.

    According to the Disneyland Calendar, it will be open Sept 2nd. It isn't scheduled to go down again until next year... January sometime. Exactly dates unknown at this point. It will supposedly be the Jan refurb that brings in the new bobsleds and will plus up the ride some. Though in what manner it will be plussed, if at all, is also unknown.

    Re: Disneyland Resort Project Tracker 3

    Is it safe to assume that some project have the deadline of 2015 for the 60th?

    Probably. Seems to make sense that they would want work done by a decadal celebration. That is also why I've been saying for a bit that we should look for work at Disneyland to ramp up pretty soon so that they have a while to do the work and get it done without rushing. Especially when you couple that with the fact that DCA's major work is approaching a close. Which means now is a good time for us to start getting announcements of work coming up for DL.

    Re: Disneyland Resort Project Tracker 3

    I wonder if the recent experiences in reconstructing parts of DCA, where they have needed to rush and work major overtime to complete projects on schedule - and yet still missing the mark in some cases, has given Disney planners the notion that they might want to pad future construction projects with a little more time. Probably not.
