    I like this! Move Goofy's Sky School to the inside of the Millionaire Building.

    YES! Granted I'm completely biased, but the lack of San Francisco stuff in DCA is ridiculous! There is so much charm, beauty, and character to SF... how could they not include any SF stuff in a theme park named after California?

    I agree as well. That's the only place in the existing parks that needs a new land. Not a huge fan of an Alcatraz ride, it sounds too dark to me, but I really think the park needs a land with an SF feel. Personally, I think it needs the entire space of Bug's Land and the remaining parking lot.

    I'd have the new entry to the land start with more classic Spanish style buildings that would be reminiscent of early SF and and complement the Carthay and the Winery. Then move into a late 1800's version of San Francisco in the current FFF area. Then into a China Town area near ToT and into the former parking lot.
    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.

    Re: What new land would you like to see??

    I agree with adding new rides to really establish lands. Something more elaborate in Frontierland, something new on the rivers of America, and something else in critter country, which in my mind still barely resembles a land, but is still a nice area.

    Re: What new land would you like to see??

    I'd love to see them build onto the existing lands more than a new land... Though to be honest these would be my top requests

    Disneyland: IF they add a new land... I'd love to see a sort of villain's land connecting critter country and toon town. Not a large land but maybe an area that looks sort of lonely and forbidding, with a villain's revue (like villains tonight) and perhaps 1-2 rides (though to be honest, I wouldn't bat an eye if it was added as fantasyland or toon town).

    DCA: A San Francisco area would be nice and I can actually see this happening if the Big Hero 6 takes off. Now... I know this is probably something that would get tomatoes thrown at me but... I think that this would probably be a better fit for DCA than Monstropolis, though I wouldn't be surprised if they saved that for the third park...

    Potential third gate?: In addition to "star wars land" and "marvel land" I can see them doing something like Have their main street be modeled after the Heroes Canyon in New York, before splitting into what I'd guess would be "star wars land" (which could feasibly be modeled after Coruscant), marvel land, which could either be a SHIELD training center on the outskirts of the "city", and two other lands, with one probably including the Incredibles or possibly a land modeled after a run down neighborhood that could be a home to an attraction like the dick tracy's crime stoppers.

    Sorry if I went a bit off topic for the last one but to be honest, for disneyland and DCA, I think they're golden how they are and only need a bit of tweaking to either make it easier to get around (in the case of a connecting land for critter country and toon town) or perhaps add a little something that was missing before (like a San Francisco area).

    I think an old San Fran area would be a nice addition to DCA, maybe themed to the 1849 Gold Rush ideally I'd replace paradise pier which I think doesn't really belong in a Disney park

    I think that's a great idea, but it would have to go in Disneyland since DCA is supposed to be California themed - which I always thought was weird in the first place. I mean we LIVE in California why would we need to see more of it. Just never made sense to me.

    For park Three: Star Wars Land
    Tomorrowland could definitely use a face lift or make a complete new land out of it. With technology as fast paced as it is today it's impossible to keep up with what tomorrow will look like. Back in the day when the park opened the space program was a new thing so it was easy to have all these dreams of the future which Tomorrowland fit nicely into but now...it just can't do it.

    I think the whole B&W thing would be uninteresting, for me anyway, other people might like it. And btw in Disneyland they have the cinema on Main Street which plays vintage B&W Mickey toons constantly. The place is dead as a doornail so I don't think your idea would go over very big. But Hollywood land definitely needs an overhaul.

    I think they should turn Tomorrowland into a "Marvel land" or something like Gotham where all the superheroes hang out. They could do something similar to the Batman rollercoast at Six Flags. Not necessarily a "Batman" themed but one of those rollercoasters where you feel like your free floating. Disneyland has nothing like that. So I think Tomorrowland would be the land I would like improved or removed and replaced with something better. I think they should keep Finding Nemo Sub ride though. It's cute and has a pretty long line so it's popular.

    As for wanting more California based attractions like San Francisco and such - the park originally was based all in California and it was a big bomb losing money hand over fist. CDA had it's run at California. They still have the Pier area and that's about as California "thrill" ride you can get.

    They should leave A Bug's World alone. It's a great place for the little kiddies and let's face it the park can't all be about adult thrill rides and attractions. Little people have a right to be entertained too.

    Rumor has it that Hollywood Land is going to be converted into Monstropolis which is fine but they better put some more interesting ride attractions than what they've got in there right now or at least make it more visible. Mike and Sulley to the Rescue is tucked back into a corner which makes it invisible from the street. I didn't even know it was there.

    As for Condor Flats, if the new Planes movie takes off like Cars did I can see them converting that to a Planesland which would be easy to add new attractions to, both kiddie and adult a like.

    Anyway, that's my two cents...and we are all dreaming anyway.

    I would love to see a gold rush circle. You could have western river expedition that was originally designed for disney world. a zorro themed museum, maybe a great movie ride type attraction themed to the wild west. you could also pan for gold there.

    You have an interesting proposal. This is what they tried to recreate of the "Old West" in the past.

    "Mine Train Through Nature's Wonderland was an attraction at Disneyland that ran from 1960 to 1979 when it was replaced by Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. The attraction itself was an expansion of the 1956 Rainbow Caverns Mine Train attraction and featured numerous wilderness environments and animatronic animals." - Yesterland.com

    "The Conestoga Wagons attraction was supposed to give you the experience of riding in a Conestoga Wagon. It wasn’t simply a ride vehicle from which you would see something. Sure, there was great scenery, such as the clever anthropomorphic cacti of the Living Desert. However, the real attraction was the wagon itself—an opportunity to travel like a “Westward Ho!” pioneer. (The reality is that the actual pioneer families typically walked alongside the Conestoga Wagons, which were filled with the family’s possessions, rather than riding in them. But that wouldn’t have been as much fun for a Disneyland ride.) In September 1959, the Conestoga Wagons attraction ended its run of slightly more than four years. It was time to begin construction of Nature’s Wonderland for the 1960 opening of the Mine Train through Nature’s Wonderland and the Pack Mules through Nature’s Wonderland.

    "The Stagecoach Ride opened at Disneyland in 1955 as part of the original roster of Frontierland attractions. In 1956, with the addition of the Living Desert and other new scenery, the ride became the Rainbow Mountain Stagecoach Ride—although most Disneyland guidebooks and brochures from 1956 through 1959 continued to call it the Stagecoach Ride or just Stagecoaches.
    The ride closed forever in 1959 to make way for the construction of Nature‘s Wonderland—Beaver Valley, Bear River, and spectacular Cascade Peak. When Nature’s Wonderland opened in 1960, there would be only two ways to travel through it—the Mine Train through Nature’s Wonderland and the Pack Mules through Nature’s Wonderland. " - Yesterland.com

    "When Disneyland opened in July 1955, the Rainbow Ridge Mule Pack ride was one of the original attractions. When the area through which was mules traveled was enhanced in 1956, the attraction became the Rainbow Ridge Pack Mules. The next expansion was in 1960, resulting in the Pack Mules Through Nature’s Wonderland.
    The mule rides ended in 1973. Nature’s Wonderland was replaced by Big Thunder Mountain Railroad (1979) and Big Thunder Ranch (1986). In 1996, the Big Thunder Ranch area became the Hunchback of Notre Dame Festival of Fools." - Yesterland.com

    The also had Fort Wilderness on Tom Sawyer's Island which was an authentic looking log fort complete with rifles to shoot, guard tower and headquarters.

    Rescuers is more of a Critter Country attraction. In fact, the movie is actually set in the bayous outside New Orleans. Also, I just prefer Fantasyland to keep to European located stories for the most part.

    I proposed an attraction featuring a bunch of Walt's classic characters for an armchair imagineering contest which you can see here....Red Carpet Adventure- Armchair Imaginition 2
    Hmmm perhaps at night they could have animations on the buildings to make it more livelier. Or maybe even a night time show that plays when WOC isn't playing. Thanks for the link that's a great armchair idea I like it!

    Either something liek that or replace the door idea with planes. I haven't seen the door concept before but I imagine the doors lay flat and can swing maybe like the dwarf coaster going in at WdW

But Hollywood land definitely needs an overhaul.
    The cinema has a steady flow of people. I make sure to spend time in there especially if it's hot. The traffic seems pretty steady. I think if it was packaged up and delivered to the public though in a land people would be interested in the history of Walt's first pieces of work.
