    Well this was a hard one. Tommorrowland is on the mend,slowly but surely (rumor has it) But Frontierland has always needed to upgrade.
    It seems like it has been lacking something extra, why not do something with the Tom Sawyer Island, Davy Crockett, or some western Adventure Ride.

    Tomorrowland is the weakest link, of course, but
    just got Buzzed.

    Critter Country got Poohed on with a 3rd rate,
    3rd try Pooh Hive-thru.

    It's been 10 years for Adventureland (with Indy)
    (the treehouse makeover doesn't really count, as
    a refurbishment was needed for it's rickety railings)

    You left Toontown off your list, but it hasn't had a new attraction
    since it opened to the real world.

    It's been over 25 years for Frontierland with
    the now deadly Big Thunder.

    And Fantasyland, they got an expansion sometime
    in the early 70's.

    And finally, Main Street, well they added Lincoln
    back in the 60's.

    So, I'm not sure how to answer your question.

    Well, let's look at it two ways...

    1) E tickets. Frontierland technically only has one. But the borders among the Lands and the sublands is really blurry. (TSI por ejemplo). So, rather than picking between the 4 lands, I'd lump it into East/West/North. TT and Fantasyland lack E tickets, even if we give them Matterhorn. But because that sector is also more kid-oriented, I don't see a whole lot of benefit from expansion with E tickets. And the West side has 5. East side, on the other hand, really only has 1. Three if you generously call Star Tours and Buzz E tickets. And while the North has a ton of smaller rides, and trhe West has Pooh and TSI and the ships of RoA and Jungle Cruise, the East has... Autopia? One other measely ride? Ride-wise, the East Side is begging for expansion.

    2) Land use. The North doesn't have much to spare. TT could be overhauled into something new. You could tear out FL Theater. Or, you could rip out half of Autopia and reclaim MBC. But there's not much to build on without tearing out existing attractions. Might need to happen some day, but let's look for underutilized real estate first. West side has the Ranch, but too much development back there could detract from RoA. Plus, BTMRR can't withstand another incident in the press. Why redo the land near there when the flagship attraction might need a major case of reImagineering soon. TL, on the other hand, has a cheesy exhibit in an attraction building, a restaurant in another show building, a movie well past its prime, a nearly dead arcade, a dead attraction in the lagoon, and a monument to dead attractions right in the middle of it all. Plus, Autopia could be cut in half (like it used to be, actually) and combined with other dead attractions in its general area, made into a huge expansion.

    The only way Tomorrowland wouldn't deserve my vote is if Disney came up with a way to restructure the backstage and create the Toon Critter Country Town expansion outside the berm. That would especially get my vote if they took out NOS Station and replaced it with one behind the Country Bear and conceived of a new NOS ride. Othewise... Tomorrowland all the way.

    Tomorrowland is the obvious choice. There used to be so much activity and now nothing really. The once continuous motion of Tomorrowland has almost come to a halt. While E-tickets are what everyone wants, I'd be happy with anything that puts that land back on the map. Preferrably attractions not based on movies.

    Definetely Fronteirland. One main ride and that's about it. And there's SO much empty space just sitting there, crying out to be USED!

    Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
    Marge: Pink.

    100% Agreed. Lots and lots of space (go to one of the satellite photo websites to see how much space). Less than half of TSI is used ... lots of space for something ....

    Connect the top (north end) of Critter Country to the north end of TSI, and continue the connection to BT Trail ... build some rides in that area ......

    It's a good thing "CM Bob" reads these boards every day, so that he will know what to do with his recently inherited empire ....

    A repost of my dead thread---but still a fun thought I wanna share!

    Much has been said about ideas for the parks and for entertainment and what not but I wanna add my two cents. I know the Matterhorn is our Ice Ride at Disneyland but I would love to see a Viking ride back where the Big Thunder Mtn BBQ used to be behind Big Thunder.

    I guess everytime I see that loading station for the old skyway, I think of Vikings. Like Pirates and Cowboys and Knights- Vikings are one of those really cool classic themes. I know there is a ride in Epcot in one of the pavillions but I sure wouldn't mind seeing another ride take and utlilize the space behind Big Thunder.

    It's also one of the areas of legend that I suppose there is a Princess tail that I think would make a great traditional animated film. Its just a thought.

    Well, just for the sake argument... Isn't the idea of the Frontier that there is so much uninhabited space?

    The nice thing about Nature's Wonderland is that it was a ride that could co-exist with the theme so well. I do think Frontierland is a close second to Tomorrowland, but I'd rather see what the Team is doing with DCA before saying, "Okay, Frontierland is yours." If they can't do anything better than Monsters, they can stay across the entrance plaza, and leave Disneyland alone.
