So, with the opening of Story Book Circus at Walt Disney World, I have been thinking of how awesome it would be if a similar thing happened to Disneyland. I am not a big fan of Toontown. It feels outdated. I feel like it would be far better if it was replaced by a new land in Disneyland named the 100 Acre Wood from Winnie the Pooh. Now, here are the details with how it would go down:
1. Take out the Winnie the Pooh ride in Critter Country. I have always hated it because it is shoddy and pales in comparison to the Disney World one and doesn't even come into the equation if you bring up the Winnie the Pooh ride in Japan. With the space in Critter Country, they could put in another show or create an updated version of Country Bear Jamboree (which I miss so much!)
2. Toontown USA becomes The 100 Acre Wood. A complete makeover. Roger Rabbit's Cartoon Spin is replaced by a Winnie the Pooh ride very similar to the one at Tokyo Disney. It is trackless, you sit in a honey pot, and there is an interactive queue. It is a near/complete replica to the one in Japan. Next, the Barnstormer roller coaster is refurbished and made over to be a roller coaster themed with Tigger. Other than these two rides, the rest of the place is based on the area from within the movies. There's Owl's treehouse, there is Rabbit's house, etc. The color tones are green and brown. A lot of soft primary colors in pastel will be used in the environment. (I am open to suggestions to other attractions inside this land.)
I am just throwing all of this out there in the world by way of the internet. Imagineers, are you listening? Is anyone listening? Any thoughts? I doubt they will ever replace it, but I still would like to see it occur. At the very least, we need an update!
