    Lightbulb No More Room To Grow: The Answer Up

    I was just thinking, in Disneyland there is no more room to really spread out. What if Disney could build a multi-level show-building with all kinds of different attractions inside and outside of it. What do people think of this idea?

    Well....i think it depends on what it looks like from the outside.

    Or if it was underground...then you dont have to worry

    Above ground...I'd have to see it to believe it. It could look incredibly bad or it could look good, depending on how it would be set up.

    Underground is a different story. I think if they somehow built a whole Villains land underground it would work.

    A building that contains multiple rides would be extremely large and obstructive, and just ugly IMO. But if they were to build rides underground, like HM and POTC, I'm sure it would work just fine - they would just have to find the appropriate area to build it. I can only think of 1-2 places they can build larger-scale rides at the moment.

    Besides, Disney has always been masters at creatively using land. There is plenty of room for expansion.

    I don't think we have to worry about going underground or building skyscraper attractions until we replace some of the less "appealing" attractions and start using up all the flat land that still exists (of which there is still plenty).

    Still, Disney should also return to their creative ways of building small profile multi-story attractions... POTC, HM, Splash Mountain, etc.

    I was speaking majority wise.

    It's a matter of semantics and honestly, easier not to argue this point.

    POTC and HM are built in basements. A small part of each attraction has dirt over them, but the bulk does not, so not under "ground". Or so I've been told.

    Re: No More Room To Grow: The Answer Up

    There are many unused areas Disney can use to expand. However, they need to majorly fix Tomorrowland before even considering any expansion. I really believe Tomorrowland needs to be fixed before Frontierland gets an expansion. ToonTown, too. Then Frontierland can get work done. Once ALL lands are up to Disney standards, THEN expansions can happen at Disneyland. Until then, it just seems like a waste of funds. That's my opinion.

    Re: No More Room To Grow: The Answer Up

    I think the one land that would really believably work as a multi-level experience would be Tomorrowland, and even then, the layering of attractions could only be minor at best. I've seen concepts for multiple attractions going through the same space (Indiana Jones concept art comes to mind), but other than the idea of it all going through the same scene, I can't imagine the amount of engineering issues that might come if show buildings were actually stacked. :S It's an interesting idea either way though, and perhaps in the distant future? : )
