    Please, no! I love the Muppets. The Muppets fit much better in Hollywoodland than Wreck-it-Ralph.
    Fear of the unknown.

    They are afraid of new ideas.

    They are loaded with prejudices, not based upon any reality, but based onÖ if something is new, I reject it immediately because itís frightening to me. What they do instead is just stay with the familiar.
    You know, to me, the most beautiful things in all the universe, are the most mysterious.

    This is really just another one of those "Knee jerk" ideas where someone sees a movie, likes it, and is immediately thinking "IT MUST GO IN THE PARKS" where it actually doesn't belong in any park anywhere.

    Midway mania fits because the ride contains digital versions of old fashioned midway games while the ride is located on a midway. Wreck it Ralph style games are not the same thing and have no place in this location.

    Exactly. Until the day they come up with Videogameland (and I hope that day never comes) there is no place in the existing parks where this will fit.

    Theme wise no...but Wretck it Ralph is going to be a Disney classic....people love the film and they even know they're going to make a sequel...

    I'd say if they made a ride where you were sent into a video game then it would fit Tomorrowland...because guess what 1/3 the population wants to enter a video game world and hopefully the tech will get there when we can just send people to a virtual world

    There are plenty of people lost in their own world in the park as it is.

    For me this isn't necessarily one of those must go in the park moments. It's more of an it would be cool moment. I loved Wreck-It Ralph.

    I'd suggest Stage 17, or MuppetVision Theater AND Stage 17, but I'd prefer this go into a third gate, too, unless the third gate turns out to be Marvel-land.

    It really wouldn't fit in at either of those locations, unless the plan is to have the Wreck-it Ralph characters show us how movies are made.

    Muppets > Wreck-It Ralph. The Muppets need a new film though. I think WIR would be good for a third gate. I think an Islands of Adventure-style place with Star Wars, Avatar, Marvel, newer Princesses, and Pirates could be good.

    I know, that's the reason I loved the parks as a kid I got lost in the World they created...I'm just saying you could fit Video Games into Tomorrowland if done right
    Video Games are one of the highest forms of entertainment right now....from Handhelds, to online, to Consoles to your phones millions of people right now are playing video games and millions more would love to get to travel into a video game world....why not allow Disney to do that?

    Maybe not in California, but a Ralph-based Video Game Area for Hollywood Studios in Florida would be great. Create a Game Central Station area paralleling Sunset Boulevard with an entrance by Animation Courtyard and another by Tower of Terror (The lightning serving as a device to get into GCS on that end much like "a bugs land" is supposed to be the Tower's garden in California). Have a Hero's Duty shooter, a Sugar Rush version of RSR, convert Rock and Roller Coaster into Tron Lightcycles and have some externally licensed attraction either Nintendo or Sega based.

    Re: Wreck-It Ralph Attraction.

    I second those saying that such an attraction isn't thematically appropriate in Hollywood Land or Tomorrowland. However, I do think that there is one place at the resort a Wreck-It Ralph based attraction could possibly call home: Toon Town. Video games can be considered as interactive toons and the idea of video game characters having a separate life from their role in the game is the basic idea presented in Toon Town of cartoon characters having a life off-screen. The zany characters of Wreck-It Ralph possess the land's staple comedic personalities and the video game worlds featured in the film are highly colorful, zany, and full of kinetic energy-- qualities that compliment Toon Town's theme. And unlike the originality that I would like to see in Hollywood Land and Tomorrowland, the franchise-based attraction is engraved into Toon Town's DNA. Throwing around arguments and considerations about where or if a Wreck-It Ralph attraction could fit anywhere in the parks, I can only see it in Toon Town.

    However, I totally agree with Rave's post:

    Not every new movie, not even every successful or blockbuster movie needs or deserves a place in the park. A strong story, sense of passion, and the potential enhancements that an attraction would bring to the land and the entire park should be the driving force of an attraction's conception and development, not the desire to turn a movie to a ride.

    Do you mean a movie into a ride?

    Re: Wreck-It Ralph Attraction.

    I had a different idea for a Wreck-It Ralph ride - a dark ride that would replace Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters as the "going into a video game" experience, but this time it would actually be about going into a video game. The concept would be that a video game company is testing their new technology that turns players into data so they can experience the video game world first hand. The games that they're using happen to be the "classic" games from Wreck-It Ralph (and possibly some liscensed games as well). Because the characters apparently never age (Ralph looked the same in the 80's as he does in the present) the ride could take place in the future and still feature those characters. I think those worlds would make interesting places to visit, and of course, the ride would feature much better production values than BLAB - immersive sets, more animatronics, interactive features that are more than shooting overly prominent, ceaselessly blinking targets, etc. (Really, I'd be happy to see just about anything replace BLAB).
