    Will Every Attraction Eventually Be Connected with a Film?

    There are a lot of mixed opinions within the fan community about the use of existing film intellectual property in the parks. One thing that is clear is that it is likely most new attractions will continue to be based on existing popular IP. Meanwhile, Disney has been developing a number of film and TV concepts based on park attractions. In recent years there's been discussion of Haunted Mansion, Space Mountain, Tomorrowland, Jungle Cruise, Matterhorn and Big Thunder Mountain all potentially being used in films or TV shows. If these two things keep happening for years, it would seem that eventually, every attraction will be connected to a film. Obviously a few random old things will stick around, but it seems that there could come a time when everything is associated with a movie. What do you think?
    The Mickey audience is not made up of people; it has no racial, national, political, religious or social differences or affiliations; the Mickey audience is made up of parts of people, of that deathless, precious, ageless, absolutely primitive remnant of something in every world-wracked human being which makes us play with children’s toys and laugh without self-consciousness at silly things, and sing in bathtubs, and dream and believe that our babies are uniquely beautiful. You know…the Mickey in us.

    "Sailing Ship Columbia: The Motion Picture."

    Looking at a map makes me realize that even though Captain Eo has kind of overstayed its welcome (the 80's called...blah blah blah), it's actually one of the few non-movie-based attractions left.

    Do I think all attractions will be movie-based/IP-based? Yes.

    Do I like it? No, not at all. What I want from Disney is things that I can't get outside of the park. This is why I don't ride Nemo. It's just a retelling of a movie that I've already seen. Boring. Though I can't say why the Snow White ride isn't boring, since technically it also is a retelling of a story we know.

    CarsLand gives us details and the ability to walk around in the movie made real- if we are absolutely going to be *stuck* with movie-based spaces, this is it done right.

    If I can leave something and say to myself "it's just like in the movie," then Disney has failed in my opinion.
    I pledge allegiance to the Earth, one planet, many gods, and to the universe in which she spins.

    Re: Will Every Attraction Eventually Be Connected with a Film?

    In the end, as long as it's done well, I don't think it will matter. The Monsters Inc to me is not a great ride, even though I actually really liked the movie. I didn't like any of the sequels to Pirates but I still love the ride and adding Johnny Depp and the mist scree with Davy Jones or Blackbeard doesn't bother me. So whether it's a movie based on a current ride, or a ride based on a movie, a good ride is still a good ride. The only difference is a ride based off of a movie needs less of a setup.

    The non film based classics at DL probably wont go anywhere. There will be original attractions, like Mystic Manor or Expedition Everest, Test Trac, Mission Space and so forth, but I don't think DLR will see any of them. Not sure exactly why, but the original stuff, and all of the technically ground breaking attractions seem to go other places.

    In DL maybe , but at DCA and 3rd gate they will definitely be movie rides and by 2030 all original DL rides will eventually become movies like BTTMR the movie and Splash Mountain the movie and Space Mountain the movie and Jungle Cruise the Movie will probaly become movies by 2030

    Re: Will Every Attraction Eventually Be Connected with a Film?

    I love this topic - Really hits the nail on the head with our worry with Disney's current OBSESSION with tieing their films to rides in the various theme park resorts.

    I can only hope that this is special to one specific era that we are living through.

    And at some point ... New managements come in ... listen to the fan community enough ... to realize there has to be a balance.

    And that many fans don't go to the Disney parks to "relive movie moments" ... but come for the originality that it was built on.

    My Vote: No, there will always be original rides.

    Dear Peoplemover Fans, If you want to see a new attraction that at least mimics the 1967 Peoplemover in a future Tomorrowland remodel, you need to write to the powers-that-be, and let them know. If you don't - Then the next time Tomorrowland is remodeled, you will see a land barren of any "Peoplemover" type attraction.

    I think we will still see original rides, but I think we will see more film based rides.

    Although I do have to admit, I am a big enough train nerd I would go see, Disneyland Railroad: The Movie if such a thing happened. I have also in my imagination been plotting out the story for a Space Mountain film, although I think I prefer the ride movie-less.

    Re: Will Every Attraction Eventually Be Connected with a Film?

    I'm sure at some point the attractions will either be based off movies or will have movies based off them.

    We already have these with either applying:

    Haunted Mansion
    Pirates of the Caribbean
    Pirate's Lair on Tom Sawyer's Island
    Tarzan's Treehouse
    Snow White's Scary Adventures
    Pinocchio's Daring Journey
    Mr. Toad's Wild Ride
    Peter Pan's Flight
    Alice in Wonderland
    Star Tours
    Indiana Jones Adventure
    The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
    Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters
    Splash Mountain
    Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin
    Dumbo the Flying Elephant
    Mad Tea Party
    Finding Nemo Submarines
    Toy Story Mania
    Cars Land
    Bug's Land
    Ariel's Undersea Adventure
    Mike & Sully to the Rescue
    MuppetVision 3D
    Turtle Talk with Crush


    There isn't a whole lot left as it is.
    I am so sick of Frozen I can't even describe the feeling.

    Re: Will Every Attraction Eventually Be Connected with a Film?

    No simple answer IMO. The really can't be a movie tie in to every attraction IMO

    Just looking at the list abve there is a lot of attractions missing on that list.

    I hope they stop at Innoventions.

    Nothing wrong with an attraction based on a film - several of the attractions on the opening day were based on Disney film properties. What matters is that the attraction provide an experience above and beyond what you would get by simply watching the film. It can't be just a ride-through synopsis of the film. It must have some element of originality, creativity, imagination, adventure, humor, immersiveness or just plain fun.
