    I completely agree with you! I hadn't noticed it until a few years ago. But now when I ride it I always seem to be distracted by it.
    Maybe it's just me...

    I still think our Fantasyland is wayy better than Orlando's even with their recent expansion.

    They can't do that because the service tunnels runs under that. Remember that tunnel has to remain for any fire emergancy.

    Re: How could our Fantasyland be revamped?

    in the 60's 70's and up to the mid 80's - It's a Small World was the only attraction located at the northern end of Fantasyland - The walkway leading from the Matterhorn and Storybookland area was completely empty, with only trees on either side. This made the walk to Small World seem special - as you heard the tick tock of the clock in the distance. It was also symmetrical, and seemed like a much more planned out design. It now seems very helter skelter. I have goten used to it over the years, byt when Videopolis first opened next to Small World, it really bugged me a lot. It ruined the feel that it once had.

    I would actually prefer that they remove all of the ugly lighting fixtures that were added in the 90's along the parade route, and make the walkway leading to Small World more simple. I also cannot stand those dolphin topiaries at the center front of the main queue area behind the Small World sign, and I totally agree about the ceiling as well.

    um... hmm.. That lighting is needed for evening parades and a lot better than a bunch of dead space leading up to a boat ride.

    The theatre IS a major attraction, when used as a theatre. Why do people want this removed??? It makes no sense.

    I like this idea!

    I've never been a huge fan of Toontown and always thought they should expand Fantasyland into that area with more dark rides or something unique that brings to life more of the classic animated features of Disney.
    Now, granted Toontoown is home to Disney characters....I understand that.
    And it was a cute idea.
    But for me I'd just as soon see an expansion of Fantasyland.
    While I'm not a huge fan of the thought of one movie commandeering a whole area of a park, nor am I a fan of always going the way of a movie-based attraction, Fantasia could be very interesting. I could look the other way in a couple of ways. It IS a DISNEY movie. And it is in an area that is already dedicated to Disney movies.
    The classical soundtrack would bring something special to the area as well.

    You might not feel that way if you were there in the earlier days, and remember how nice it was.

    It makes sense because disneyland is a park of infinite potential and extremely limited space. The theater has held nothing significant for a number of years, and even then, a show vs E-ticket? Does it really make no sense that for a lot of us, this place is high on the chopping block list?
    In the quest for quality, I have no problem with the characters footing the bill.

    Shows serve their purpose just as parades, fireworks, ect help to provide offerings that everyone can enjoy. Disneyland is the most ride centric Disney park so naturally everyone wants rides over shows, but shows are a huge draw for many. I personally would not give up Fantasmic for a ride. It is a unique offering that makes disneyland so special. Would I personally be upset if Fantasyland theater dissapeared for a FL expansion? No, but for those who don't like rides (especially dark rides and thrill rides) as much, shows are a major draw. A major draw that DLR has been missing in Fantasyland for quite a while. I find it odd that people complain about lost show venues and empty venues, but then demand others get torn down for rides. Golden Horseshoe, Aladdin's Oasis, Tomorrowland Terrace, Fantasyland theater, and the Festival area are all underutilized areas of the park. That doesn't mean we should demolish them all for shops and rides.

    Good points. But my post was just to explain why it shouldn't be surprising and how it makes sense that I and some others feel that a theater should be the first thing to be sacrificed for expansion. Basically just a long winded way of saying its our personal preference that ride>FL theater.

    No..it does come as a surprise, because live theatre is an important aspect of Disney park's history. Just like in regular society, this art form should be considered invaluable.

    Sorry...but it doesn't even sound nice. It sounds like dead space lacking themes and leading up to an attraction that doesn't really deserve the build up.
