    Tomorrowland doesn't need to be made smaller... What it needs is more attractions.

    Re: New Land For Subs, Matterhorn, MBC area?

    ^^ I absolutely Agree^^

    On a side note. I dont think it would be such a good idea to build up around the MBC area. Why you ask? Weeeeell, there is already two weanies in that small area.(SM and Matterhorn) So if they built a third that would really make the Disneyland skyline look quite congested.(On the East side that is) YMMV

    Re: New Land For Subs, Matterhorn, MBC area?

    At this point, it's about maximizing all the space they can in the theme park. A big empty motor boat lagoon and sub lagoon with PeopleMover tracks to nowhere all over the sky are the anti-weenie. They make people think something is MISSING, something's not right. Something's not well in the Magic Kingdom. Even a series of gazebos with Character Greets and landscaping would be better than the long row of tables in the former load/unload area with an empty green lagoon.

    I doubt Disney will be building a third park in California, so I'd like to see some of these attractions brought to one of the two parks we do have.

    Re: New Land For Subs, Matterhorn, MBC area?

    This rumor is complete wishfull thinking. The only thing I hope they chage is changing the direction of the sub track and moving the dock to the opposite side. There is little que room for the subs in TL, and they don't fit thematically. If you turned MBC into a que for Nemo it would solve both issues very easily.

    Yes, but unfortunately, it would be sucking up even more valuable expansion real estate. For what, a queue???

    Personally, I don't go to Disneyland to ride the queues. Bad enough that they ruin one of my favorite rides with a theme that insults my intelligence and bores me to tears before the attraction can even open. But to take land that could be used to reopen MBC, or create a whole new ride like Aquatopia, a Little Mermaid dark ride, or a Rescuers swamp boat ride -- and turn that into a "pretty" place to line up? Humbug.

    Re: New Land For Subs, Matterhorn, MBC area?

    Would it be possible to put the subs entrance (queue, load/unload, etc) across from the Matterhorn? Basically under the monorail track where the smoking area is now? That would certainly take it out of tomorrowland.

    And in that same scenario, that's where the fantasyland autopia entrance was. Why couldn't they move the Autopia entrance (and why not ... even the Monorail entrance) there.

    Then that whole area from the Matterhorn up past Fantasia Gardens (the old MBC load/unload) could be the new discoveryland or whatever it's going to be called.

    What's left of the former Fantasyland Autopia queue is a tiny strip of walkway currently used as the smokers lounge. Nice idea, but its not practical, they need that huge queue to get all the kiddies on Autopia, and Chevron only paid for the ride so you'd have to pass through the commercials in the building you go through.
