    Dumbo's Circusland question

    In the 1970s, there was a plan to create Dumbo's Circusland, which was to include a relocated Dumbo ride. That concept never became a reality, of course, but was it intended to be its own land or a subsection of Fantasyland?
    My top favorite Disneyland attractions:

    1. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
    2. Pirates of the Caribbean
    3. Splash Mountain
    4. Mad Tea Party
    5. Peter Pan's Flight
    6. Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin

    A sub-land of Fantasyland. Directly South of Toontown and North of Storybook land.....and East of Discoveryland (with a balloon flight to that new land if I am not mistaken).

    Re: Dumbo's Circusland question

    From what I've heard, Circusland and Discovery Bay where hand-in-hand projects, long before Toontown and New Fantasyland were born. Discovery Bay was to have a hot air balloon ride to transport guests from the bay to the circus. Aside from Mickey's Madhouse, a relocated Dumbo, new Casey Jr. station, and Circus Disney, a Pinocchio dark ride was also in the works.
    Theatrical Roles: Various Roles (The Laramie Project), Fred (Oklahoma!), Oberon (Shakespeare in Hollywood), Hero (A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum), Valere (The Miser), Moonface Martin (Anything Goes), Thenardier/Laborer/Army Officer/Ensemble (Les Miserables), Franz (The Sound of Music), Tobias Ragg (Sweeney Todd), Tinman (The Wiz), Elles Dad/Winthrop/Ensemble (Legally Blonde), William Barfee/Leaf's Dad/Jesus Christ (25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee), Fiddler on the Roof (Rabbi), The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (Muff Potter/Ensemble), Shrek the Musical (Lord Farquaad)

    Which is right about where Videopolis, today's Fantasyland Theater, got plopped down. It really puts into perspective how big that facility is and how poorly Disney has come to utilize space in their theme parks.
