    I vote for none as well. Jeez, The Wizard of Oz is significantly tied to MGM, not to Disney,
    and the Lone Ranger is Clayton Moore all over. God does Disney grasp at straws......

    Neither, time to get original and creative again.

    The recent(ish) rumors about an Oz themed area was that it would be based around 'Oz the Great and Powerful' which is a Disney film.

    Early reviews of Oz are not too positive and there was an article on Yahoo yesterday about Oz being this year's John Carter for Disney. I'm not sure of this site's policy on links so I will not give a link to the Yahoo article.

    Time will tell on Oz but even if it is not a Cater type bomb it doesn't look like it will be the type of mega hit that will want to put an investment in Disneyland over.

    I could have told you that 3 months ago.

    If I had to pick, Lone Ranger. But honestly most of that is just based on personal preference.

    I think that the early consensus is that OZtGaP is a little bit better than Tim Burton's Alice, and the visuals are at least as good as Alice, so if Alice grossed $1.0 Billion, I'm thinking around $1.2 Billion or so.

    Is that big enough of a hit? Remember that Disney owns the rights to a lot of the Oz books, so this film is the first in a series.

    It could be cool with Oz if you enter through a Kansas fair like in the film, which works with Frontierland, then the ride takes place in Oz.

    Yes, If they did an Oz Land it would be based on the upcoming movie and its sequels rather then the MGM movie.

    ORDDU: While it's true that The Wizard of Oz is tied forever to M-G-M, Oz the Great & Powerful--along with Return to Oz--are both forever tied to Disney. So let's not confuse one studio's movie with those of another. Disney has it's own version of Oz, while M-G-M has theirs.

    ORWEN: Just as other studios have their own versions of Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, etc., etc., Disney should take advantage of their own version of Oz and fly with it

    I'm with everyone else, can we get an original concept, please? Seriously, when was the last time Disney built an attraction that was based on an original concept?

    If I have to pick, it would definitely be Lone Ranger. Oz just seems so out of place and weird.
