    Question How would you feel about losing some dark rides?

    I just recently walked through the sleeping beauty castle and thought that if they ever decided to make a sleeping beauty dark ride, the castle would make an excellent queue.

    Now, shortly after that i took a glance at my google map app and noticed there is absolutely NO ROOM for mor stuff within fantasy land.

    So, I have a proposition for you all. Would you rather:

    A) Lose the Toad and Alice dark ride to house a new sleeping beauty dark ride?

    B) Lose Snow White and the Bibity Bobity Botique?

    Keep in mind that the lost rides could probably be relocated without much hassle(the rides aren't very complex right?). And the sleeping beauty ride would keep all the same intimate aspects of the classics(small sets, sharp turns) except for the final scene with Prince vs Maleficent.

    So what do you all think? I have always thought that SB deserved a dark ride over the other films that got them. It had the best climax of any of the other movies and I don't know about you but I'd really like to see animatronic fire breathing maleficent dragon
    In the quest for quality, I have no problem with the characters footing the bill.

    I'd rather lose Snow White and the princess makeover thing than losing two great dark rides.

    Relocate the rides where exactly? You said yourself, Fantasyland has no extra space. Rather than removing and rebuilding two rides, why not build a new one in your blue sky extra space?

    Snow White has a pretty good climactic ending, but the ride does not. I'd fear that you Sleeping Beauty ride would have the same problem. And as for an animatronic fire-breathing Malificent/Dragon, they've already got one in Fantasmic.

    There's plenty of room to build if they really wanted to. Autopia is the same size as the castle area of Fantasyland. They could put 5 or 6 darkrides there if they ever wanted to with plenty of room. Or alternatively, shorten the track in half (or make it elevated in portions), and add 3 or 4 more.

    Use the Motorboat Cruise space for dark rides.

    I'm with Krack. Take all of Autopia north of the submarine and give it over to a new FL expansion. There'd easily be room for 2 Fantasyland-style classic darkrides, plus one new larger Fantasyland premier ride.

    I would like a 4th option of not losing any of the dark rides I would like more dark rides added without the loss of any. I know it's a pipe dream but that's the fun part of imagination

    I meant there is no room near the castle where a sleeping beauty ride would make the most sense. That's why I thought the others could move to maybe the motorboat area.

    While a Sleeping Beauty ride would be cool, I'd prefer to see new FL rides based on Beauty & the Beast, Cinderella, and Aladdin, since we do already have the SB castle walk through (though I agree that's not nearly as cool as an actual ride).

    Fantasyland is just fine.
    Not sure why we'd need a Sleeping Beauty ride. She already has a castle.

    If i were in charge the only way i could see not loosing any dark rides is maybe just to rebuild all of fantasyland maybe stack dark rides on top of each other like alice in wonderland and Mr. toad. Just a thought

    I guess I'm one of the only people who think the Sleeping Beauty walk-through is far better than any dark ride she'd have...

    Re: How would you feel about losing some dark rides?

    The only areas open for rides...are the Motor Boat area and the Sky way station would not mind some new dark rides but no reason to get ride of the classic they stay busy enough to stay...............now if you want to take out Buzz or Pooh...go right ahead
