    Wait. Why would they remove the beautiful water around this area right before the start of the 50th only to let it sit there for a couple of years? I can understand if they wouldn't want to have the boards up anytime soon if a new attraction would go in soon, but if it isn't until 2008 why do we not get to look at the water for years? It's sad.

    Or at least, start filling it now and putting in some inexpensive but colorful landscaping.

    Maybe they are working on landscaping right now behind those curtains.

    Perhaps, but again, if the loading area was drained, why fill it with water again, rather than just landscaping IT?

    Well, let's see...

    Toy Story (1&2) - Buzz Lightyear ride & Woody show(s)
    Bug's Life - 3D movie in DCA
    Nemo - Sub overlay
    Monsters, Inc - Limo redo
    Incredibles - Nothing yet
    Cars - Autopia overlay rumored

    Doesn't look like exhaustion yet, but unfortunately, the two rides in DL
    are pretty close (or three if we include Cars). All in TL. Also the Pixar-cation of
    TL has been pretty rapid as well.

    There's a lot of neat Pixar shorts, but Disney doesn't have rights to those.

    That's why we're confused as to why they put water back in it.

    Perhaps since the sub lagoon is drained and being worked on, they decided just to have a clean clear motorboat lagoon to let the monorail soar over until the happiest profits on Earth come in.

    I never realized they were seperated into two bodies of water before, but apparently it's obvious since the submarine water is so much more chlorinated and so much clearer.

    I say they fill it in and bring over the Alice in Wonderland maze from DLP. It will fit with the area IMO.

    I like that idea, I would think it was charming and beautiful but it would not draw any income for the park so I think it's got a snowball's chance in Mr Toad's third act of getting planted...

    Though the maze could go over in the Disneyland HOTEL don't you think?

    Why not build the Pirate Ship Restarant and Grotto over there too and make the DL HOTEL kind of a Yesterland Hotel with various old school Disneyland attractions going there to 'retire'.

    Yeah, I've liked the idea of a Yesterland hotel, sort of along the lines of the Pop Century resorts but a bit more upscale. The maze would be perfect for something like that.

    Heck, I could even go for a whole Alice resort. But yes, I suppose going by the Disney Century concept, some "decades" would be much bigger than others.

    Anyhoo... I'd like to see something boat-based over there in the old MBC. Maybe dig out a new path so that you don't retrace so much of your round-trip path. Personally, I'd like it to be considered inside the borders of Tomorrowland, or at least more transitional, but I think no matter what you could really create a mesmerizing environment to float through.

    I was on the monorail on the 9th and looked like the actual pathing for the cruse is drained but the area near the canopy still had water. They had dammed up areas leading into the course and drained the water out of just there when I looked. Sorry Didnt get a pic but camera was out of film at the time.
