    Today's crowd likely isn't interested in science, its one thing to be in the 50's and 60's and 70's when life was more simple, and much of what we have today was something interesting. Today however its much harder to entertain people based on the future, its hard to top what we already have, yes there is space travel, but even that seems to have lost many people's interest, I just dont think the land of tomorrow fits in todays modern world, but that is just my opinion.

    It was easier to sell people on the future when life was more simple.

    Well said...it explains why almost every where you turn, it's all about merchadising, branding, entertainment and aggressive marketing. I would love to see classic TL elements return but with the attention span of certain guests, it's all about "ENTERTAIN ME OR I'M LEAVING".

    We live in a society where we are almost handed everything. We want more, not less. It's so sad how it's become though. I remember the ol' days when iPhones, Androids and DVRs didn't dominate our lives.

    I also remember when we waited in lines because FastPass wasn't needed

    Whoops...I think I went off topic again. D'oh.

    Couldn't find a classic scene to go with the music so unfortunately, we're stuck with this...

    But yes, I still stand by the fact Disney should not surprise us with turning TL into SWL...I think I'd cry.

    Re: Star Wars Land?

    My 2 cents........I've been dreaming of and thinking about a Star Wars theme park for years----since before Disney bought Lucasfilm.....Here was how I envisioned it several years ago originally on myspace ...(remember myspace).....Anyway --it would obviously have to be different from my Vegas Hotel and Casino idea.....but I just loved the thought of a giant Star Destroyer sitting in the middle of the desert as a hotel.


    Brad's Movies, TV and other random Geeky Adventures: Star Wars Hotel Casino and Theme Park idea -BAC (old idea that recent discussion made me repost again)

    A love of Disney that sometimes borders on the edge of crazy ---but I'm okay with that

    Re: Star Wars Land?

    I think the one issue with building a Star Wars Land (in either park) is that the world of Star Wars is way too broad. Granted so was Harry Potter in a way, but Harry Potter had a handful of specific locations that were revisited again and again inside and out in the books and movies. In Star Wars there are all kinds of worlds that we visit but it feels like we don't spend enough time in these locations to really feel a sense of atmosphere and immersion we would want to experience in real life. (This is the same issue plaguing the idea of Avatarland.) I make a few exceptions for maybe the Mos Eisley Cantina, the Death Star, the Jedi Temple, and...eh that's about it. They could easily increase Star Wars presence in Tomorrowland no problem but it should be subtle and not go too overboard.

    Re: Star Wars Land?

    I've thought about it, and I think Star Wars land would best be set on Tatooine. It's the only location that is visited twice in the original trilogy (aside from a brief reprise of Dagobah in Return of the Jedi) and it's also the home of the Skywalker family.

    It may not be the most lush or visually intricate locations from the series, but I feel it's the most important and iconic. There could be attractions that take you to other locations in the universe (like Star Tours does) but for the actual land, I think it would need to be Tatooine.

    Re: Star Wars Land?

    I like Star Wars and Star Tours, yet I worry about the idea of more Star Wars in Disneyland Park, or more Star Wars in other parks. I don't want to park hop after riding Star Tours to continue my Star Wars fix, yet neither do I want to see another Star Wars ride put in Tomorrowland. At the same time, a Star Wars E-Ticket miniland would be a great reason to refresh the rest of Tomorrowland.

    So at this point I will just reserve judgement until Disney makes an official decision.

    Anyone who thinks the timeshare booth, awkward pizza port, dated 3d theater, abandoned Starcade/Peoplemoover/skyway, and Innovations should be saved and not replaced with fun Lucas/marvel/avatar attractions are just too stuffy and highbrow for those that just want to have fun there.
