    Re: What Disneyland History Should Be Preserved at the Disneyland Hotel?

    D.C.A. is the ideal location for conceptual artwork related to the creation of Disneyland; I would be very happy if The Disney Gallery, for example, was moved, in some form, to the new park.

    Similarly, many of the exhibits in The Walt Disney Story, featuring "Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln" would be best in the new park. For example, the animation pavillion may be able to house the re-creations of Walt Disney's offices. I think that since Disney has dismantled its Feature Animation department, the pavillion needs to expand its scope to include the full breadth of productions that have come from The Walt Disney Studios.

    At D.C.A., I would like to see more of Walt Disney's career in California explored. There are several historical buildings that could be moved to the new park. For example, the original garage in which Walt Disney made his first films deserves a place of honor in the Hollywood section to parallel Mickey's movie barn/movie garage outside his bungalow in Mickey's Toontown.

    A remaining structure from the Hyperion Avenue studios was moved to the Burbank lot when it was built, so I think that building has the potential to be moved again to the new park and, perhaps, be paired with the replica of the "Mickey Mouse & Silly Symphonies" sign that was also at the Hyperion plant.

    The existing, outdoor Muppet*Vision queue would be better replaced with a shop or restaurant, and, on the opposite side of the street, the meaningless window displays on the exterior of the animation pavillion would be better exchanged with a replica of the "Disney Bros. Studios" storefront.

    The Dominguez residence, the only structure that is original to the property on which Disneyland now resides, should be moved from its current location, backstage, to the citrus groves of Bountiful Valley. That house has an interesting history that may lend further authenticity to D.C.A.

    I really don't like this idea that everybody seems to have regarding DCA. It should be its own seperate park, not a dumping ground for stuff from Disneyland.

    Re: What Disneyland History Should Be Preserved at the Disneyland Hotel?

    You know I was listening to the Adventure Thru Inner Space, Journey to the Moon, and Mine Train Thru Natures Wonderland ride through tracks on the Musical History of Disneyland CD set and wish that I was able to ride those rides atleast once. They closed before my first Disneyland visit years back though .

    While I agree of the concept of a museum/exhibit space at the DLR,
    the DH is a hotel. With the property space needed to house a decent museum, there'd be room for one building for guests - not a reality.
    It makes no sense to shuttle tourists to the factory and warehouse haven of Glendale nor the studio in Burbank. All studios continually suffer from size/space restraints and now, greater security concerns.

    A true Disney museum would make an excellent draw inconjunction with DCA or at a 3rd gate (perhaps a former strawberry field...). It would draw a particular audience, I'm thinking along the lines of a Baseball Hall of Fame/ Rock and Roll Hall of Fame but with even greater family appeal potentially. Plus it would free up storage costs for John Stamos for the Harbor Marquee and he'd receive a nice, "On loan from the collection of..." signage on property. Great publicity!

    With regards to the ATIS concept, this is what they've tried to achieve, apparently the message needs to be reinforced: this is from the original press release: a bug’s land
    Designed especially for kids, this land features “Flik’s Fun Fair,” which is full of attractions inspired by the Walt Disney Pictures presentation of a Pixar Animation Studios’ film A Bug’s Life (Bug’s Life Theater presents: It’s Tough to be a Bug - a 3-D visit with Flick and Hopper from Disney/Pixar’s computer-animated movie, A Bug’s Life) where children can experience a fun-filled world from a bug’s point of view (Flik’s Flyers - a whimsical bug-size hot air balloon attraction fashioned from leaves and empty food containers).

    I really don't think of D.C.A. as a dumping ground. I just think that since Walt Disney's offices and the conceptual artwork that has come from WED Enterprises/Walt Disney Imagineering in Glendale are part of the reality of California, the new park is a more appropriate home for these materials.

    The Walt Disney Story and The Disney Gallery really undermine the believability and cohesiveness of their respective areas in Disneyland, whereas the exhibits in the two attractions have the potential to enhance the authenticity of D.C.A. and connect it better to The Magic Kingdom, itself.

    The new park is suffering from the lack of a meaningful relationship to the original Disneyland. In storytelling terms, there are no dramatic unities between the two parks.
