    Re: How would you Feel about this?

    I like the idea of connecting Toontown to Frontierland, but the path from Toontown to Critter Country would be really long and boring since there isn't really enough room for attractions. The second path from Frontierland to the Jamboree are would be a little useless since the path that's already there is usually pretty empty.

    This sounds great! Much like the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail in DCA. Maybe create a cool map, bury some treasure or something, and make sure it's nice and shaded with trees!

    I object to the idea that AP's don't spend as much. We may not spend as much per visit, but we do go more often, yes? I know I personally spend probably $750 plus every year, not including my pass.

    I'm generally in no mood to spend any money when I can feel someone's breath on my neck after Fantasmic.

    The back stage area behind critter is how they get fantasmic cast/ main street horses and the rainy day cavalcade to and from main street and circle / north parade entrance. Never going to happen

    Entrance: Sure if Disney builds a Hotel on the Pinocchio Lot it could become a resort guest entry like the one from DCA to GCH, or the Crescent Lake resorts into Epcot. It would help relieve the congestion on Main Street.

    ROA wrap around: It would help relieve crowds in the Critter County dead end and F! crowds. Would I like it on the water, absolutely not, because I want the view from the river to be unobstructed since it already has a path around the southern half. Also don't want to the view from the trains to be obstructed by guests when looking at the western scenes.

    I think a trail and attractions will be built outside the berm at some point.

    Why would you object to an obvious fact? You shouldn't take it as a personal insult, the only thing that Disney cares about is spending per visit. And really, $750 is not very much to spend over a whole year. Many tourists spend that in one day. I personally hardly ever bought anything when I had an AP. I almost never bought merch, mostly just snacks, but they probably added up to close to $750 over a year.
    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.

    HKDL was built small and needed expansion quickly. DL will at some point need expansion too and have the same area left to build on. They have already filled out a lot of DL's area, Small World, Toontown, Haunted Mansion, Indy, Splash all going outside the berm.

    As far as what's needed backstage, access for maintenance, access for CMs, parade storage and access, some infrastructure, and loading docks to receive food and merchandise. Storage and maintenance and preparation can be offsite for anything that easily transported on a road.

    I finally figured out how to view the document. I clicked on "File" in the upper-left corner of the screen and then hit "Download." I had to download the document as a .jpg onto my computer in order to view it. I hope this helps!

    Re: How would you Feel about this?

    I love the idea. It should be well planned, though, not just thrown in. Shaded, lots of sitting areas, and (as mentioned by one commenter), not visible from the train. No need to turn it into an attraction, but a themed trail with places to relax would ease congestion and benefit tired travelers who don't want to return to a hotel, but need some down time.

    The idea of an additional entrance/exit is interesting. It might work for those parked in M&F, and would certainly relieve a lot of insanity after fireworks and Fantasmic. Nothing like the wall-to-wall mayhem on Main Street then.

    I think about this nearly every time I visit the park. The F! crowds are brutal and I wish something could be done in the way of having a walkway around the north end of ROA. And having an exit to M&F from CC would be epic. I'd say 8/10 times we just walk back to M&F because the trams take too long to expedite from the DTD loading areas.
