    Re: Thor coming to disneyland!

    As kind of an aside, I also think Disneyland really needs some kind of functional space that is dedicated specifically to short-term events like meeting Thor or the Greek Festival that they did last month. Big Thunder Ranch is already kind of like that (they used to do corporate events all the time) but it still has that western theme. I don't know where they would put it, but I would love to see Disneyland have year-round temporary short-term events (say a week or so) so that their 1,000,000 AP's can always look forward to something new every time they go. It could be something like the Greek Festival or it can be related to their most recent movie, but preferably more than just a meet & greet (like the Toy Story Funhouse, anyone remember that?). Kind of like the idea behind limited time magic, only good.

    There is no right or wrong in this debate. It is simply a matter of perspective.

    They've used the Hunchback arena in the past for things like this. It'd be a great use of it for smaller events as well - they could arrange facades behind easily installed meet-n-greet areas to keep the scale down and not look like a small event swimming in a huge space.
    Woo! Spring is coming!

    Ruin, hardly. Unless, you think they will bulldoze the Matterhorn and the castle to create Asgard.

    This is a small meet and greet that will hopefully be located in Fantasyland as that is the best fit for this character. He is a Norse god. That is something born of mythology and fantasy.

    They never said that it was going in Tomorrowland.

    haha these are Disney Forums....most people have opinions and they don't change much...even over time

    Only most of the newer Disney fans will accept Mavel and Star Wars as Disney...the rest will hate them forever...

    Most Disney fans like myself are both Star Wars and Marvel fans as well. But what worries us the most is that the park might be overrun with those franchises. Disneyland has its own specific brand and identity. We really don't want to see that ruined by slick marketing and packaging. I'm all for Marvel coming to the park as long as it's done tastefully. Same thing with Star Wars even though there's enough of it in Disneyland already.

    I agree with this statement. While I feel some people just hate Marvel just because they hate the idea of them in the parks. I do believe most common Disney fans are open to the idea. I have been a Disney fan since the 80s so maybe I am used to the Star Wars already being in the parks and welcome more tastefully done attractions regardless of where the stories come from.

    After seeing what Disney has been putting out around the globe in their parks I have good faith that they can deliver a high quality good storied attraction based on Marvel and they can put it in one of there theme parks in a way that will make sense.If this was the early 2000s I'd probably have a different opinion but I am basing my opinion on the past couple of years worth of what they have given us in their theme parks.
