    Re: So if this Harry Potter rumor pans out. . .

    They can always just make another Disneyland, but the rides will be based on live action non-Disney films. Harry Potter (Lord of the Rings too and WILLOW!) can be Fantasyland. Star Wars can be tomorrowland. Indiana Jones can be adventureland.

    etc etc. Probably won't happen. haha

    Just some more misjimformation.

    I trust Mugglenet. In my honest opinion, I find a lot of what Jim Hill writes to be completely preposterous, especially since none of it ever comes true.

    ^Heehee, misjimformation. Love it.

    Yeah, you gotta treat those articles with a grain of salt. In your shoe. Grinding against your little toe. For the reason aforely mentioned. It is just a guy writing stuff under the 1st amendment after all, he can say whatever the hell he wants.

    I do get some entertainment value out of them however. To relate it to Harry Potter, it's a bit like reading the Quibbler.

    HP is a fantastic Intellectual Property that would work wonders for some corners of Disneyland. It would be best for such an attraction to be on a grand scale and limited to its area (IE Indiana Jones, a PARAMOUNT property).

    And... no. Not in DCA.

    Hehe, imagine a Harry Potter attraction at Six Flags (owned by time warner) and how piss poor it would be executed. If only every theme park tried as hard as Disney (even when disney is bad), it would be great for everyone.

    I think it would be awesome to see the world of harry potter come to life, but yah... definitely doesn't belong in Disneyland. They can do soemthing in Florida for sure. And throw Narnia into the mix too.

    Yeah, but if saomeone else does HP, people will complain that Disney could have done better.
    Disneyland is a place of yesterday, tomorrow, and fantasy, but it never says that it is exclusive to Disney ("Disney"land named after the person, not the company, at that point.)
    Star Wars, Tarzan, Indiana Jones, Twilight Zone... all non-Disney properties... all executed great.
    Let's see Disney do it!

    This ride wouldn't fit, because usually Disney builds rides based on good stories

    Oh don't get me wrong, Disney would do a fantastic job with it. I just don't think it would "fit" in DisneyLAND for it to be done the proper justice. Florida is where they can really do something awesome.

    And in defense of Tarzan, that was a Disney movie too.

    The best place for HP in Disney-dom IMHO would be a recreated Beastlie Kingdom
    in DAK.

    Re: So if this Harry Potter rumor pans out. . .

    I didnt read this whole thread, some people think DAK's Beastie Kingdom and/or the studio park may be a good place for Lord of the Rings and/or Harry Potter. Others suggested maybe a simple meet-n-greet or mini-show in the parks that can't possibly build a new ride building for HP. Like Mad Hatter said, Merlin VS HP would be interesting. Or redoing some show scenes in the Great Movie Ride.

    Blegh, glad it's all false. I'm one of those few that hates the Harry Potter franchise.

    Huh? Harry Potter? I think DCA sucks enough as it is

    Re: So if this Harry Potter rumor pans out. . .

    Harry Potter can easily be transformed into an amazing theme park on its own. There's no way a ride could be added to anything in any of the Disney parks. Now get some Disney Imagineers to design this with a good budget and there's no limit to how great this park could be.
    The whole series of books, so far, has set up a new world of possiblities in terms of theme park ideas. I'd love to be part of that. (If it's done right)

    Re: So if this Harry Potter rumor pans out. . .

    I have never read a Harry Potter book, but I have seen some of the movies with my kids. The best way to incorporate Harry's world into DL/DCA would be to create an entire land. I would say that they could build a new park on an alternate piece of property or they could rip out ToonTown and replace it with Hogwarts (or whatever the school is named). They could have a dark ride, a quidditch coaster, maybe some sort of walk through, maybe a hedge maze or something. It could be a fun new land at the resort. It just doesn't seem like a single ride would fit in very well.
