    Re: My (wishful thinking) Guide to Disneyland:

    I have always wanted a Beauty and the Beast ride. Rescuers too.

    For London Streets, there should also be:

    101 Dalmatians

    Re: My (wishful thinking) Guide to Disneyland:

    I have one complaint, the ticketing system seems a bit top heavy. The majority of the rides are either E or D, with only a few A tickets, I don't think the canoes are worth more than, say, Tom Sawyer Island. I like the ideas though.

    Awesome! Two things, though: please tell me your version of the Starcade will still have air hockey. Also since you didn't mention anything about shopping I hope your park will have land specific merchandise instead of the generic souvenirs you can find all over the current park.

    Great job!

    Thank you. I thought about putting in a 101 Dalmatian ride but opted instead for "Pongo's" restaurant....which would be subtlety themed to the movie.

    As to the Beauty and the Beast attraction; in my mind it would be like the one they nearly built in Paris (think Tiki-room, but with enchanted dinnerware instead of birds).

    You may be right; however, back when they did have the Ticket books there were always a lot more D and E attractions than A and B. This was reflected in the books themselves (a typical 15 ticket book would contain 5 'E' tickets but only 2 'B' tickets and a mere single 'A' ticket. In my copy of a 1979 Disneyland Guide, both the Island rafts and the Canoes were 'D' ticket attractions....but your point is well taken nonetheless.

    Thank you. I want the Starcade to be filled with totally unique to Disneyland games but I don't see any reason why a Air Jet game can't be there (maybe with a dark surface and stars dotting it).

    I didn't list the shops because I was too lazy to.....but yeah, of course I'd want there to be a return to the kind of shopping they had pre-Eisner.

    Great plan... though, wouldn't the submarines be part of Mystery Bay and not Tomorrowland? And, you're really going to gut the Grand Canyon and Primeval World?

    Re: My (wishful thinking) Guide to Disneyland:

    Wow. Every good idea in there but the self-dish-washing kitchen sink.

    You'd need at least 12 more acres for the additions, though. Which is a shame, because all of the things you added fit in perfectly with the whole. Maybe take some of the ones that aren't there and put 'em in a third park? But what would it be?

    Anyway, I'm rambling. Great wish list! Ask Santa for it!

    No Lion King attraction in Adventureland? I'm surprised considering it's been high demand on these boards.

    I have the subs where they are now and Mystery Bay North of Big Thunder:




    I love the Primeval World too but I think a well done full scale replica of the Moonlanding would be a much better fit for in between Tomorrowland and Main Street USA. The diorams could be presevered as the backdrop to a new restaurant in Down Town Disney or DCA I suppose (or maybe even the Theater in DTD)........sometimes even cool things have to go though.

    Thank you so much A lot of thought went into that guide and each and every attraction does have a place.

    London Streets, for instance, replaces Toon Town. CenterCore would be located in a upstairs showbuilding above It's a small world. Beauty and the Beast in a small Tiki-room sized theater north of the Buzz building where a meet and greet area is now. Horizons takes over the Innovention building and Country Bear Mountain takes over the Pooh footprint. Coyote Canyon would be placed in the large empty area due west of Big Thunder. Rescuers would be in the old Motor Boat Lagoon and the Pirate Ship rest. would be placed on the edge of said that waterway.

    Well, like I said above, each and every addition has a place....I couldn't think of a real good place to put a Lion King attraction in Adventureland(although I suppose it could go on top of the IJA show building).

    Very well laid out. Great thought went into this concept and it is very realistic and possible. I just hope you don't get your budget slashed and have to do it all on the cheap.
