    The Great Movie Ride for DCA Fan Made Concept Art

    Here's some concept art I did (fan made though I admit I copied and pasted 2 palm trees from clip art onto it) for a brand new version of The Great Movie Ride in Hollywoodland at DCA. Unlike it's Floridian counterpart it has a different exterior (with some inspirations from the one in Florida, & the Warner Theater). Not just that but it is called "The Great Movie Journey". The exact location of the ride would replace both Monster's Inc & Stage 13. So feel free to comment and such also see the picture below.

    Good list, although I would replace The Artist with a more iconic silent film like Nosferatu.

    Re: The Great Movie Ride for DCA Fan Made Concept Art

    Generally, I am against clones. However, I would dance with delight if The Great Movie Ride came to DCA. It is the perfect fit for Hollywood Land. I saw the original during my first trip to WDW last year and it may have been my favorite thing about the whole resort. While I am sure the locals/regulars are bored to death of it, I was amazed. A 22-minute dark ride with a live host and actors? It was in my top 5 Disney rides of all time.

    I'd like the Great Movie ride but with its own movies not just a clone but taking the idea to the next level

    Oh, you know that if this ride was made, you'd hear "Is this the Hollywood Studio Tour?" :P

    Re: The Great Movie Ride for DCA Fan Made Concept Art

    I would rather see a roller coaster, something along the lines of Rockin' Roller Coaster. Great movie ride was a disappointment to me. The ride was way to cheesy and BORING for me. It was not all that interesting. It was definitely no POC. So I have a hard time understanding the love for this attraction. It was extremely bad, maybe our guide just sucked, it is a hit and miss with live guides. But anyway I would take a fun coaster over the GMR.

    Re: The Great Movie Ride for DCA Fan Made Concept Art

    TBH I rode this is WDW when I was younger but forgot the ride so I just went and watched the whole experience thanks to TCV on YouTube to see the queue and ride and I loved it. I want to ride it again. The ride was fun to watch and it seems like it could be a nice ride like a Pirates if you don't want thrills and want to kind of relax for a while, or in this case, about 20 minutes. I would definitely find this to be a better ride for Hollywoodland in Disney's California (Emphasis because the movie business is big in Hollywood, which is located in California, FYI) Adventure.

    Re: The Great Movie Ride for DCA Fan Made Concept Art

    GMR is probably my least favorite E-ticket in any park. I find the random movie scenes to be very boring and they seem to lack any vision or any reason for them to be connected. It's just not very compelling to me and doesn't take me into another world, you can't help thinking you're watching AA's re-create movies you've seen before. You'd also need a lot more space because it's really huge. But I certainly don't want to see it re-created in DCA.
    The Mickey audience is not made up of people; it has no racial, national, political, religious or social differences or affiliations; the Mickey audience is made up of parts of people, of that deathless, precious, ageless, absolutely primitive remnant of something in every world-wracked human being which makes us play with children’s toys and laugh without self-consciousness at silly things, and sing in bathtubs, and dream and believe that our babies are uniquely beautiful. You know…the Mickey in us.

    Lets face it though, the chances of them getting rid of Monster's Inc any time soon is very unlikely escipally with the release of MI2: University next year.

    Re: The Great Movie Ride for DCA Fan Made Concept Art

    Ideas fantastic, but the question of how to fut all that in there comes into play. Every time I've seen this discussion brought up, that question is always asked. Guess I will be the one to bring it forward.
