    Re: Replace Toontown?

    Unfortunately, Pixar can do little about the mess surrounding Roger Rabbit. He is owned by both Disney and Steven Spielberg, who was the one responsible for convincing WB to let Daffy, Bugs and other WB cartoon characters appear in the movie. They had repeatedly said no until he went in and "convinced" them to make it happen. For that, he got 50% of the character, and thus because his asking price to use Roger in anything is so high, you don't see Roger in the Park anymore, not will any more movies likely by made as he just wants too much for the rights to use Roger.

Should Toontown be replaced with something bigger and better?

    I think Toon Town should stay, it draws more kids to the area than anywhere else in the park, so I have to say that it should stay.

    Re: Replace Toontown?

    I'm not sure why people do not like Toon Town. It's a nice little place. It has Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin which I know a lot of my friends love and they're grown adults. Even Gadget's Go Coaster produces a small thrill, but I'll admit it's not worth 40 minutes for. If I had small children of my own, then maybe I would wait for it. Heck, I'm almost 21, yet I still like to shake Mickey's hand and even take a picture with him. Who says you HAVE to be a kid to do that. Toon Town was built with family in mind, probably 80% for kids and 20% for adults, but it is for the family nonetheless. Just because you've grown up and don't visit Toon Town as often, doesn't mean the land should be shut down and destroyed. Let the next generation enjoy it.

    Re: Replace Toontown?

    I love Toontown, and always have. Heck, I'm 64 and I still love the Toons. The only thing they need there is more shade. The toons would appreciate it as well. You hit it correct when you said let the next generation enjoy Toontown. We keep forgetting that we are not kids anymore, well some aren't and you know who you are, but for us Kids at Heart and the real kids, it's a great place.

    I agree with a lot of what you guys are saying.. it needs food and anoher attraction.

    but, I also agree that we need to fix tomorrowland first.

    Again, just because you're not a kid anymore and probably don't visit Toon Town much anymore, doesn't mean that they should "rip it out."

    You're right, I'm not a kid anymore. I am now old enough to spot quality. I don't spot any in Toon Town.

    Toon town is in need of trees, its a lot of open space. Although with the Trolley back it might look more welcoming again.

    Innerspace & Lost Boy: thank you.

    I'm glad to see some people can actually see what is good for the MAJORITY of vistors; and not just for themselves (selfishly).

    Everyone has similar and different opinions. But don't judge Toontown because you personally don't like it. Think of others. Think about the opposite perspective.

    Re: Replace Toontown?

    Toontown is one of my favorite areas of the park. Too bad when it opened I was just over the height limit for most of the attractions.

    I think they should move the whole thing to the Hollywood Pictures Backlot in DCA. It would be a lot more cohesive than what's currently there. Toontown IS in L.A. after all... Heck, Marron studios would work better than the Hollywood Pictures Backlot theme.

    Re: Replace Toontown?

    ^ Interesting thought.

    What if it was Valley of Villainy that went into Backlot Studios at DCA? I read this idea before, but it didnt really pop in my head til now.
