I was browsing through the E-Ticket Magazine web site and followed some links until I discovered some wonderful concept art by an ex-Imagineer Christopher Merritt. That Imagineer created the wonderful E-Ticket Magazine website.
I thought I'd post some links to his great concept art and start a discussion on things at Disneyland that never came to be, and if those ideas would still be intriguing or worthwhile today.
First up: Discovery Bay.

Of course, this and is a favorite long lost idea that Disney fans still hope and dream for - but with the rumors of a "Woody's Round-Up"-themed area taking over the available real estate, is Discovery Bay pretty much a dead deal?

Critter Country 500
To salvage the Country Bear Jamboree, Christopher Merrit came up with a "off-road race concept." Unfortunately, this potentially fun ride lost out to Winnie the Pooh. Take a look:

....Including a really cool Nightmare Before Christmas attraction:
...complete with suspended Sandy Claws sleigh ride vehicles (think Peter Pan's Flight)
...So what axed Imagineering concepts have you stumbled across during your time on the 'net? Anything worth posting, or worth hoping and dreaming over?
