    Soak City is actually a pretty good water park, as far as water parks go. Yeah, there's no theming, but the slides and such are well-done. Water park enthusiasts can hop on the bus and go there no problem. DLR is not WDW. Comparisons are moot.

    It's just not warm enough, sadly. I would love to see a themed DL waterpark, like the ones in WDW (cause lets face it, those are pretty amazing) but they would not be able to be open year round.

    There just simply isn't a whole lot of space available to Disney.
    Unless Disney wants to do some sort of underground parking garage, they are out of luck for space.

    Here is all the area around Disneyland & DCA, circled in Blue is Disney-owned parking, which I suppose can be converted...

    A water park as part of the hotel complex would give it more of a resort feel. And I would even push for a mini golf course, which they once had. The water park could have a retractable roof for use in the winter - the company can certainly afford it. And I would keep it partially closed even in the summer. Some people (me included) like the fun of a water park but don't like to be in the sun all day.

    No, No, No, No, No. What you just described sounds like a Six Flags Park, something we hopefully want to avoid by going to Disneyland.

    I could get behind a water park addition to the resort, but not inside the park. It should be a park of its own. But with the comes a million other details I don't even want to stress my brain on thinking about hahaha

    By the way, the California version of Great America was never a Six Flags Theme Park. When it was originally built by Marriott, it had a sister park in Illinois that became Six Flags Great America.

    Great ideas, unfortunately Autopia will never go away, and what you propose would have to be built on top of the Submarine attraction, which wouldn't be able to support the weight. I think Disneyland will be waiting-it-out in regards to a waterpark to see what happens to the proposed waterpark down Harbor Boulevard in Garden Grove, just south of the resort.

    Re: Put the water park in disneyland

    yeah, I like the idea of a waterpark, but I think it should be outside the park (though in resort area) and either heavily themed to 1 style (like tortuga/Pirates), or just a generic Disney characters theme... Hey, who wouldn't want to see Ariel have a meet and greet in there where she is a mermaid again

    That's why I would like to see one too. The WDW waterparks are rather amazing compared to a Soak City, Wet and Wild or Raging Waters simply because Disney uses a storyline to develop them which provided great theming.

    In the end we may see a waterpark at DLR, but it may be likely 50 years in the future.

    The reasoning is this:
    DLR guests go 1 or 2 days and DCA was expanded to make it 2 or 3. If they add a water park to get guests to stay for 3 or 4 that would be nice, but all they would get is $45 for entrance. $10 for a coke and hot dog. $15 for parking. $70 in total revenue.
    WDW guest went 5, 6 or 7 days. So WDW built waterparks to get the guests to go 6,7 or 8 days. They got $55 for the ticket. $10 for a coke and hotdog. Nothing for parking. But it doesn't stop there. They also get divided by three for the amount of people in a room, $30 to $130 for another hotel night. Breakfast for $10 and dinner for $20. Increase revenue per guest $115 to $215.

    The winning situation at WDW is they had the captive audience to extra money from if they get them to stay one more day. DLR has a tiny captive audience, because many guests drive home at night, or stay and eat offsite.

    Disney doesn't need to do this now. If they build one today it's likley to be razed to make room for a more profitable hotel. When Disney has hotel rooms for a large part of its guests, and 3 or 4 gates they may want to use a waterpark as means to increase revenue.

    One possible offshoot of this idea I see as possible, is a super pool. The Timon lot and PPH is a good spot for new hotels. It could be replaced by something like WDW's Beach and Yatch Clubs resorts. Twin hotels, basically a big hotel with two check in desks. They share the pool area, Storm Along Bay, that is between them. Storm Along Bay is a driving force for pool hopping ideas at WDW.

    Re: Put the water park in disneyland

    Since Disneyland is a business, and is into making money, I think that a miniature golf course located by the Frontier Tower and the Paradise Pier Hotel parking structure, (in the Simba Parking Lot), has a better chance of being built than a waterpark. It would not only attract the hotel guests and theme park guests, but it would also get the Downtown Disney guests.
