I care! jk
But yeah I do think a Eticket would be better use of that land, I once
had an idea that they could clone the Indy ride from Paris and retheme it to Davy Crocket. I think a Davy Crocket ride besides canoes would be great!
For half the price of an e-ticket, they can add a d-ticket and two c-tickets. This will add more capacity, at lower price, with lower operational costs.
Disneyland already has 10 E-Tickets. It doesn't need more. The park is at capacity. It doesn't need to add more big e-ticket attrractions to bring in bigger crowds. It needs smaller attractions to expand the capacity.
It seems to me that 90% of the people on this board are living in d-nile.
The absolute last thing DL needs is a dumbed down kiddy area, ala Flik's in DCA or the Dino Carneyland in AK.
The Festival Arena and the surrounding area is largest area left in DL, and really the only area where DL can expand beyond it's exitsting border. Plans for this area need to be Grandiose in style and Imagineering.
And here's a tip for Matt: a Woody Carousel ain't that grand an idea.
It's amazing to me how much people overreact on message boards. Look, let's look at the facts here:
1) This was Jim Hill story. He doesn't have a perfect track record with these things, so why assume that such a plan is written in concrete?
2) Al Lutz also made a report about a Frontierland Expansion that was VERY DIFFERENT than Jim Hill's. Now, Al may have been incorrect as well. We just don't know. But why believe Jim Hill over Al Lutz? The percentages, IMO, are on Al's side.
Frontierland needs more rides. Badly. The land has only a handful of attractions, and only one of them (BTTMRR) is an attraction that draws people into the actual heart of the land. Therefore, a multiple ride expansion is indeed likely in the future. Why wouldn't Disney look at the possibilities of an E-ticket? If I recall Al's report correctly, the speculation was that THREE rides could be made - a C-, D-, and E-ticket. Would people be as opposed to a Woody's Round-Up concept if it was but one of three rides, and the smallest/least significant one at that? Personally, I wouldn't. Frontierland would greatly benefit from such a C-ticket.

Sorry, bad joke, it's just a quote from the movie "Office Space". It's just a line displaying disgust at an idea, in the case of the movie, "someone's got a case of the monday's". In my case, "Woody's Frontierland Expansion".
Sorry for the mix-up!
