This was posted in another thread (http://www.micechat.com/forums/showt...27#post497127), but I thought I should make a new thread for this:
I was also thinking of a restaurant in that MBC area with an attraction on top. Disney wouldn't have to do much digging. But looking at a bird's eye view: http://www.terraserver.microsoft.com...Lat=33.8139887
Looks like the lower portion of MBC that's surrounded by Autopia tracks could be the restaurant. With a bridge in Fantasyland that leads over Autopia off-roading tracks and to the attraction on top of the restaurant. The bridge would rise on the upper half of the MBC surrounded by Autopia tracks, then queue over that corner and lead into the ride located on the lower half of MBC. This would provide a nice view of Autopia and from passing FL ride vehicles in that upper half of MBC (I'll explain in a little bit) And I guess the upper half of MBC in the Autopia tracks could be 1 or 2 dark rides. The buildings would have to be themed as landscape for Autopia cars or for whatever the future FL ride is perhaps. The buiding design would be similar to how the Alice and Toad ride overlap each other. In fact, why not have a portion of these rides make an outdoor appearance to pass by Autopia cars? To enter the restaurant guests would go down a ramp on the Fantasyland side where the off-roading to Autopia is. Then go under the Autopia tracks and into the restaurant.
With the 1 or 2 darkrides, entrance and exit on the north side of the winding Autopia tracks. Guests also queue down under the Autopia tracks to get on the ride. Or the other attraction could have the bridge & queue style. A new pathway would surround Fantasia Gardens. Meaning a new pathway east of Fantasia Gardens that takes guests to the new attraction bulidings and up alongside the end/start of the parade route. This would kind of give an alternate almost secluded pathway option to use besides Small World Mall.
Possible FL rides?: Beauty & the Beast, The Little Mermaid, & Aladdin. I have more detailed plans for each of these rides, but I'll hold that back...
Fantasia Gardens could get some more themeing to relate it more to "Fantasia" and "Fantasia 2000". Statues perhaps. A similar feel to Ariel's Grotto. And put a little water & light show in synch with the classical music used from these films. Showtime every 15 or 30 minutes.
Skyway should be a FairyTale Cottage. Different characters tell a story ala Storytime with Aladdin and Jasmine at Aladdin's Oasis. The Skyway station up there has a nice view of Fantasyland. And there's not much else you can do, except for a storytime and meet n greet.
Enclose Fantasyland Theater and put good productions in. The facade is a mix theme of Medival tents and Festival of Fools.
Expand the Matterhorn queue like they did with Jungle Cruise.
You see the the I-5 freeway exit and onramp near Disneyland? This would probably never happen, but wouldn't that be an interesting place to but a new E-ticket Narnia attraction and DL backstage?? Actually, it WOULD be possible to reroute a few of the ramps. But I don't want to go into detail for that. The queue would have a similar feeling as Indy's queue. With Narnia, you enter the mansion facade, walk around, go upstairs, end up in the room with the wardrobe, enter the wardrobe into Narnia's winter forest & lampost, explore the area a bit until you arrive in your enchanted sleigh or a POTC/ Small World/ water coaster type flume ride. Another idea would be when you go through the wardrobe into Narnia, you're actually outdoors in the winter forest theme. Then you track outdoors through Narnia and enter the Witch's castle for the indoor portions of the ride. So it's similar to how Small World & the Pooh ride is set up. If it's a flume ride, the "river" un/load station is themed with the Beaver dam. With all the queue areas, it's a bridge that goes over the train tracks to the show building. I chose the queue to go over the tracks instead of under because when you go upstairs, it's like going upstairs in the mansion.
I haven't completely worked out the ride experience yet. But as the years go on, the attraction would be updated to reflect the latest Narnia film releases. So this attraction is not completely based on the 1st film. It's like a collection similar to the Indy ride. AH, just think of all the awesome AA's & SFX we could have!!
I hope that all this made sense and you think it's possible...
