    Crossing my fingers they do away with Tomorrowland completely and create Star Wars land. Re-theme Space Mountain as a trip on the Millenium Falcon.

    Re: Star wars land d23

    I have an idea that should solve all of this. Get rid of everything currently in Tomorrowland, rebuild a new area completely themed around Star Wars and call it "Long, Long, Ago and Far Far Awayland"
    Credibility is to be sought for. Credulity is not. Sadly the latter is our normal human state.

    Hm, if Disney builds two Star Wars lands, one a massive expansion to Hollywood Studios with lots of rides and multiple Star Wars locales and then builds a small Star Wars expansion in DL's TL with fewer new attractions and incredibly limited by the limited space nobody from around the world will come to Anaheim, they'll all go to Orlando. We're going to get some half a** version to satisfy locals.

    Should they also rename Frontier Land, Final Frontier Land?

    Sorry, but "final frontier" is a Star Trek phrase. Not a Star Wars one.

I don't think Walt ever felt the need to take over entire lands with movie franchises to make a quick buck; why do you think he kept them in Fantasyland for the most part and why do you think his latest concepts were all original ideas and exclusive to Disneyland?

    In Walt's mind, relying only on existing work was beneath the Imagineers and himself, they could do much better. Disneyland was its own product, not a rehash of others he had already created on the big screen.

    But it cant be a full SW land when about a half a dozen attractions wont be themed to SW. It would have to be a subland basically UNLESS they tear out stuff like SM, Buzz, Subs, Monorial, etc and thats not going to happen.

    Thats ultimately the problem. DL just doesnt have the room to build 5 acres of untouched land. And it would look like an odd hodge podge with Buzz and Autopia streaming through it.

    Re: Star wars land d23

    Theyd have to re-brand Space Mountain as:

    THE KESSEL RUN.

    A perfect fit!

    The Kessel Run was an 18-parsec route used by smugglers to move glitterstim spice from Kessel to an area south of the Si'Klaata Cluster without getting caught by the Imperial ships that were guarding the movement of spice from Kessel's mines.

    About the Kessel Run... It took travelers in real space around The Maw leading them to an uninhabitable—but far easier to navigate—area of space called The Pit, which was an asteroid cluster encased in a nebula arm making sensors as well as pilots go virtually blind. Thus there was a high chance that pilots, weary from the long flight through real space, would crash into an asteroid.
    AND... we know, the Millenium Falcon did it in less than 12 Parsecs.

    Please no. Space Mountain is already one of the most popular attractions in the park as it is right now, so it does not need to rely on a movie tie in.

    I know that is how it appears now. But most of the fundamental concepts behind Disneyland were already in the popular imagination of his time, Walt just preserved them in his own way (as in Main Street) or recast them (as in Fantasyland).

    The one place on the Disney property where he tried to do exactly what you think he did is Tomorrowland. There the results of that imagineering speak for themselves.
